From the arrival at the Pousada, we were welcome with a nice room upgrade thanks to Jocelyne ! the room was fabulous, very clean with a nice private pool and terrasse and very quiet at night. (even a Nespresso machine) . 10 minutes away from one of the best golf course in Brasil, Terravista, great service at the beach by Paolo and other menbers, great capirinhas, excellent food and good wine list.

In Trancoso you can either stay at the Quadrado or at the beach. Out of the beach hotels this one is the best. The beach is nice, the restaurant very good (try the Moceca) and the bar serves good drinks. We stayed in a standard room, which was ok but nothing special.

Room Tip: Regular rooms are fine, but nothing special. The bungalows are nicer but much more expensive

Had a four night stay at the Estrela d'Agua on our visit to Trancoso. Overall it was a wonderful visit and stay and we were very happy with the hotel. It does have its pros / cons. We flew into Porto Seguro airport and arranged for transportation to / from the hotel arranged with the hotel. Communication via e-mail was very smooth with Marissa. Ride into the hotel is a little bumpy (expect some dirt roads and possibly a ferry depending on which way the driver takes you).

The resort itself is in a walled area and is on beautiful grounds. The various apartments are located all within a short walk of the beach / pool / restaurant which are all great. It is right on a peaceful, quiet part of the beach and very close to the quadrado (area where the restaurants are in Trancoso) making the location ideal. We spent the better part of four days relaxing on beach chairs and enjoying the beach service. Beers, drinks, food, etc all served on the beach. English menu is available which made communication with the staff easy. Very few spoke any English, however they all tried very hard to make our visit special and went the extra mile to make it happen. Hats off to the staff there who hustled to get us everything. At the front desk, both Marissa and Maristella (both English speaking) were awesome with helping us book restaurants for dinner and a day trip to Praia d'Espelho.

As for the cons of the resort, the Wi-Fi is not strong (it is free). It does work on the beach for light internet surfing, but don't expect to stream video. Also, the unit itself has its charms to it, but do not expect modernity. In particular, the bathroom is pretty old and beaten up. The sink and shower had slow draining issues.

Food-wise, would recommend having dinner every night in town (all the restaurants are situated around the quadrado). Our favourite two were O Cacau and Capim Santo - great for seafood. When you go to the quadrado, hit up the little market to buy water. There are also some shops and drinking spots to check out, overall it is a very chill area. To get from the hotel to the quadrado it is a 5 minute taxi ride. Taxi costs between BRL 20 - 30 one way. The front desk can order one for you and there is a taxi post at the quadrado to grab one on the way back - very easy and we felt safe with the taxis.

Overall, I thought the service, location and beautiful beach made the resort perfect for us and overcame some of the flaws of the older hotel units.
