Some steps out of village (which became in the last years very busy) the restaurnt (belonging to the Pousada Chez Max) is located directly at the 3rd beach (terceira praia), has nice atmosphere and superbe food (unluckily the pizzaoven is not in use everyday). Go there, relax and enjoy!

Was very disappointed with the wooden bungalow's, stank of rotten wood, aircon was so old and noisy and didn't work. Was like a sauna inside, gaps in the door frame allowed mossies to get in. Luckily I complained and got a free upgrade to a more modern room with modernish aircon. Breakfast improved after my complaint about how poor it... More

We visited this lovely pousada in April and we loved it! It is a sort of bungalows' village, where each bungalow is surrounded by green and nature. The prices are reasonable and the breakfast is included (very nice breakfast). You can see the ocean when you have breakfast, that's the best! Each bungalow has air con and a fridge, which... More

The breakfast us nice but could have more options. Wifi only in reception without access in bungalow. Perfect location at Third Beach, very close to the fourth... More

Extremly nice staff and very clean. Just in front of the ocean, the best room is number 5! But all the others are nice too, little chalets very cosy with a net in front of each bungalow, breakfast is very good with pure home made juices and cakes, really nice, and quality price the best!

This is really a super nice place, well located on the third beach, where it is quiet and still close to everything. i especially loved the bungalows in the tropical garden, right in front of the beach.

Several bungalows built around an exotic garden. The bungalow is simple but provides a pleasent stay, with an A/C, refrigerator, clean toilet and a hot shower. You have a nice porch with a hammock with a great view to the garden. A good location between the vivid 2nd beach and the quiet and romantic 4th beach , right on the... More

I loved Chez max, its a simple no frills bnb , with basic wooden rooms (with a/c though) on the 3rd beach of Morro, so about 5 min walk from the busier second and 5 mins to the quieter 4th ... The setting is so nice and green that you can hardly see any other bungalows from your veranda, all... More
