I visit Porto Seguro each year since that is where my husband is from and we frequently visit this hotel to use the beach and beach bar. They have just built a number of new rooms which overlook the sea and have put in another pool, plus a nice area to relax with large wooden sofas with cushions and a... More

I've been in Aquarela during the first week of April 2014. We arrived from Porto Seguro airport and the hotel is located just before crossing the "Balsa" (boat that transport for Porto Seguro to Arraial D'Ajuda). In the surroundings, you have a pizza restaurant, some groceries that take credit cards, and the most important... the "vans" public transportation to Arraial... More

A real little piece of heaven. This is a cosy, brilliantly managed hotel. Having breakfasts my my feet on the beach send. Great food, fresh, clean and well presented room. amazing people that makes you feel like home. Spotless staying and unforgettable holidays. A quick tip: Try the "moqueca de camarao". It's delicious!

“We used a triple room. Was located in the middle of the hotel area. Has a slight view to the sea. I believe that rooms from the front may be a little noisy, due to the "Balsa".”
