What an amazing place to spend your vacations... This is the best located pousada in and around town!
Owned by Yves, a Frenchman, and his beautiful and great Brazilian wife with their 2 kids, they not only helped us get to this marvellous remote location, but welcomed us as if we were friends.
We spend an amazing week their, enjoying the sand on our feet as soon as we got to the outdoor dining area where the food and the service were just perfect: relaxed and attentive at the same time, as well as delicious. When we just couldn't eat anymore, we could relax in the hammocks... or walk and small 5 min to get to the amazing 40km white sand beach! Can you ask for anything more???
When we got tired of just "laying down", we could play volleyball with Yves and his kids before taking a swim in the pool... what a way to end the day! There were also a bunch of activities that could be organized to make sure you get to see all the beauty of this little paradise, like dune buggying! Ouf...
Also, because it's a hotel I am reviewing after all, let me tell you that the rooms were very nice and the A/C was more then welcomed on those humid nights of April. Ours had 1 big bed and a smaller one, so it could have accommodated 3 people easily!
And before I end this review... just to give you an idea of how friendly this was... an "Easter Hunt" was organised where Yves' kids and the other guests' kids were looking for Easter eggs together!
So here it is... I would definitely recommend this pousada for your stay at Mangue Seco. Hope you'll make it there...
