    Que pousada incrível! Valeu cada centavo. O senhor, dono da pousada, foi super atencioso e receptivo. Nos atendeu e nos recebeu muito bem, foi tolerante e nos deixou ficar duas horas após Check-out., o Café da manhã farto, com frutas, sucos e outras coisas típicas. Com certeza voltarei. Gostei tanto que vou dar a minha mãe e minha avó um final de semana. A localização é perfeita: na praia!

    Primeiramente a pousada é linda! Um local incrível, rústico e aconchegante. A recepção é ótima, com um café da manhã dos deuses. Estou muito impressionada e feliz com minha estadia, ainda que breve. Minha única sugestão é rever o sistema de chuveiro, pois as vezes fica frio. No mais, foi uma experiência incrível!
