Just returned from a 6 night stay in Praia do Forte, my wife and I couldn't have picked a better place to stay than Porto da Lua. The location as stated in other reviews is perfect! It is situated right on the beach and within 5-10 minutes walking distance to town. The entire staff most notably Mara and Weydson left a permanent mark in our minds that we will never forget, they really went above and beyond to make our stay just perfect.
Lobby - Clean, rustic.
Rooms - Honeymoon Suite, large, wrap around balcony, seating area with small bar, old school CRT TV with only 3 channels(could use a satellite here), hammock on balcony, large bed with curtains draped around it, walk in shower (hot water was out for a few days, they use solar panels to heat the water which had a problem but it was fixed within 3 days and they gave us a credit which we greatly appreciated), overall very nice.
Property - Well groomed, back of pousada facing Atlantic Ocean, had numerous lounge chairs for use, some covered by bamboo umbrellas, a great place to relax or get some sun.
Food - Outstanding, all of it! They cook with love and you can taste it! Breakfast was over the top every day with new items and things we never had before. Tea Time(every day at 4PM) was also a pleasure, the coffee was great and they put out sweets again which we really enjoyed.
Bar - Weydson took us in like we were his family, he mixed up some delicious drinks and we became close friends that I hope will remain for a lifetime! You are a good soul Weydson!
Staff - There was not one unhappy face working there. Everybody seemed to enjoy their job, interacting with guests and some speak English.
