“Comfortable, pleasant and very friendly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2014

As others have stated, the location is excellent, close to the center but still very quiet, and practically on the beach. All common areas are very well laid out and very pleasant. We stayed in a "flat" which had a very simple minimal kitchen (two burner stove, no oven, but with a microwave and a good-sized fridge), two nice bedrooms with their own bathrooms, and a small but sufficient living/dining area. The upstairs bedroom has a veranda and a view and is definitely the better of the two.

The staff and owners are extremely friendly and helpful, and will not rest until whatever you have asked for or even just asked about has been provided. The new pool area is very pleasant, with a pool long enough for laps, and lots of shade on the side.

Breakfast has lots of offerings; the lunch and dinner menu is fairly limited but reasonable; there are other restaurants in town, but since we were traveling with an elderly person we found it easier to eat at the pousada or in our room.

This is NOT a Caribean style beach. It is wide and windblown, and extends for miles. It has a stark beauty, and is good for running at low tide. At high tide it can get rough.

Gostoso is a hot windsurfing/kitesurfing point. We rented equipment and took lessons from the Dr. Wind Center, about a 25 minute walk along the beach from So Alegria. The instructor, Eugenio, was truly wonderful, knowledgeable, enthusiastic and very helpful. The equipment was good quality, well maintained and the rates were reasonable.

We drove to the beach at Tourinhos in the late afternoon; it's well worth the bumpy half hour drive to an even more remote and stark area, with some very interesting cliffs and a great sunset view.

Room Tip: Get a "flat" or go for a second floor room

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014

This pousada has an ideal location, it is almost in the center of town, not directly on the main street and has direct access to the beach. Rooms are clean, well kept and have everything you need. Service is very good. Everybody is extremely friendly and helpful. Food is good and breakfast especially tasty with lots of nice thing to try. There is fresh homemade bread and cake every day. Don't miss a nice cup of coffe and piece of cake in the afternoon. Enough parking space. The only negative point I can this of is that there is a bar next door that has live music every saturday until 2am.
I'll surely go there again as soon as possible!
