Visited Refugio da Vila for a night during a visit to Bahia for the WC. We arrived before the check out time due to an early flight and were greeted by a lady who I assumed was the general manager, who made us feel comfortable and welcome (invited to the breakfast area, and offered to store our bags). The breakfast...

The Pousada is located in the village of Praia do Forte. The architecture and the decoration are lovely. Then, you notice the kindness and warmth of the staff! Even though the rooms are very small, they are cosy and prepared to make you feel comfortable. Breakfast is in itself an experience: several types of bread including a homemade version, homemade...

We returned to Praia do Forte this year and chose to stay in Refugio da Vila for 2 nights. Excellent location, away but not far from the buzz of the main area with the shops and restaurants and the beach. Rooms are small but clean and do not feel cramped. Our room, as most rooms, faced the nice swimming pool....

The room was simple but comfortable, the bed was large and the sheets were very clean and soft, the bathroom was clean but small, although that wasn`t a problem. They offered us a crib for our baby girl, and there was a baby kitchen for parents to clean bottles and cook baby`s food. The breakfast was very good and rich...

Very charming place, good service, good food, and the pool area is awesome. Close to the "main street", and far enough from the noise. The rooms are kind of simple (no luxury), but are fairly confortable and clean. We would certainly come back!

We were very much looking forward to staying here, imagining a peaceful refuge. However, it is IMPOSSIBLE tl sit bythe pool, the pool and garden borders a noisy road where lorries and buses pass constantly and because it is on the bend they love to use their hydraulic brakes. Our room -2- was not able to pick up wifi,despite the...

Coffee without orange juice, tapioca and ice. We were waiting for it (only orange and ice) because they bought outside the hotel. This kind of mistake is not acceptable. I were here one year before and it was wonderful. This time we are facing with much noise made by children. In the beginning this kind of hotel (roteiro do charme)...
