This pousada is in a lovely setting overlooking the marina. From the outside it is stunning, set at the far side of a cobbled square with the president's summer palace on one side, some boutique shops on the other and a restaurant opposite. However, inside it is very modern - which considering it is built within the old Fort was a bit of a surprise. It is mainly on one level so be prepared to walk quite a long way to the restaurant and some of the bedrooms. There is an interior bar which isn't very welcoming or comfortable. The breakfast room/restaurant is much nicer with a view of the marina. Breakfast was satisfactory but not impressive. Room was very comfortable, although considering the price I think Premier Inns would give them a run for their money!!
