Over priced
Ants crawling all over the place. Location isn't amazing. Way over priced for what it is. Breakfast is basic. No hot water in shower. No sheet on the bed, only a blanket. But on a positive note. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

Pousada maravilhosa e equipe melhor ainda!
O atendimento foi excelente. Eu e a minha amiga chegamos um pouco antes do horário de check in e o nosso quarto já estava pronto. O atendimento foi maravilhoso, principalmente da Denise, super simpática! Depois do check out, ainda pudemos ficar nas instalações da pousada até o horário do nosso ônibus, nos deixando totalmente confortáveis.
