Definitely the place with the most beautiful view over the ocean. Excellent breakfast, very clean rooms and a splendid pool round up our impression. Tucked into a corner of the main square (Quadrado) with no traffic - excellent for young families. We return every year to enjoy this magnificient pousada!

I can talk a lot about the location and the views from the hotel, which is to die for, but more importantly, an incredible service and friendly people. We spent 3 nights as part of our honeymoon. Oriana made our stay unforgettable, she ensured every little need was attended to, and became more like a friend to us, along with her mother and husband. She upgraded us to a gorgeous room, suggested the best places to visit, she even dealt with an annoying parking guy. She first made sure we are dog lovers before she introduced her dogs Bella and Surry, which we loved and we enjoyed taking them for walks on the beach. I am sure there are plenty of good pousadas and hotels in trancoso with great locations and views, but I strongly believe it's rare to find one that is managed as well as this one due to Oriana and her positive energy and pleasant attitude. Strongly recommended place for couples and anyone who is looking for a relaxing stay in trancoso.

This Pousada has a view to kill for. Its a very nice small resort with only 6 houses. Very good breakfast in the morning where you can order several things from the kitchen too. The Pousada is owned by an English lady. Her daughter and Brasilian men are taking it over. All are very friendly and helpful. When you want an excursion or information they are doing their utmost to assist you. Had a great Caipivodka from them. The swimming pool is offering a great view over the woods, beaches, mangroves and sea. The location is directly situated at the Quadrado.

Mar A Vista is a truly special place to stay in Trancoso. My husband and I stayed for 4 nights in August and never wanted to leave. It has the best views in town, overlooking the sea and just off the Quadrado. The rooms are spacious, clean and great outside space (equipped with hammock to enjoy the beautiful sunsets). The staff are faultless and extremely attentive, particularly Roseli who was so helpful and the owner Patricia is very friendly and made us feel at home. The breakfast was excellent and the pool is lovely. Overall I would highly recommend this well-run pousada and we can't wait to return in the future!
