Overall it was a nice experience. The settings feels like home and the ambience is great! It suits all kind of gender and ages. The location is a walk away to the beach and the hospitality of the staff is great!

Cozy place, friendly hosts who treat you like family. You'll have a clean room with a nice breakfast, and a lot of information of if you want to travel the area. Great people in a great location. Two thumbs up!

To begin with the owner gave us a warm welcome. He recommended a good restaurant nearby. The other possiblity is to have dinner in the garden of Pensao das Dunas. Fish from the BBQ and a bottle of wine is served for a great price. The breakfast is delicious!! The only improvement that could be made is the matras on...
