Pousada Galeo is like visiting your favorite uncle. His name is Roberto and he and the rest of the team (Diego, Junior, Marcelo etc.) go out of their way to make you feel welcome. The breakfast was great and if you had any special requests they would make it happen. The room was comfortable and very clean. It had a... More

50% good ! Room really clean, with free fresh water and the staff is kind and helpful. Various breakfast. The location is cool too, close to the beach and good restaurants. 50% less good.. The familiar room do not have a real view of outside, if you open your widow you're straight in the corridor. (Other room might be better).... More

Huge thanks to Beto, Diego and whole team at Galeao for my stay in Itacare. Hospitality was second to none from organising surf trips, visit to cacao farm, car rental, restaurant recommendations and hostel itself has clean rooms, fast wifi, amazing breakfast and all for good price. Loved this place - will be coming back for sure!

WOW, this place is so cool and perfect, and the people is what makes it awesome. My four friends and I booked this hostel for a couple of nights, but ended up staying for a week or more! Berto, the owner, was practically the sixth member of our group. The first night we arrived, we was tired and exhausted after... More

We stayed at the poussada Galeao for 3 nights. Location is premium just behind the main street. The place is run by Beto that will go to the extra mile and give you the best tips about Itacare and its area. Rooms are clean and very nice as well. Breakfast is outstanding, especially the home made freshly prepared brazilian tapiocas.

The rooms are very nice, with comfy beds, AC and clean bathrooms (the rooms are cleaned every day which is... More

This is the Best place i've ever stayed at. As soon as we arrived we were welcomed by the owner who showed us around the whole town and made sure we had the best time while in Itacare. He helped us with everything and arranged cheap tours for us. The breakfast is also fantastic!

Beto—a super-friendly Brazilian who speaks at least 3 languages (maybe more I'm not aware of)—treats his pousada more like a homestay than a hotel. If you're on your way to the beach or the ATM, he'll offer to drive. If you need a restaurant or a location recommendation, he'll give you his (brutally honest, yet still diplomatic) personal opinion. Anything... More
