Pousada papaya is a garden of Eden in the middle of the desert. It's full of flowers and hammocks. Our room was very clean and comfortable. The pool is very refreshing and well maintained. The breakfast is the best we had in Brazil. The food is delicious. We sat there for 2 hours every morning. The wifi works very well.

This pousada is a real gem. Daily breakfasts with views of the sunset dune were sublime, the staff are courteous and friendly, although they do not speak English.

Staying at Pousada Papaya was the highlight of our trip to Brazil. We (a couple) stayed there for three nights in March 2012. We got the suite in a separate "building" with our own balcony and ocean view. That was a great choice! The room was clean and comfortable, enough space.

This pousada is really nice. Nice building. Amazing garden that is well groomed. Great small pool though I am not a fan of pools on the beach front. Excellent breakfast with freshly cooked cakes daily. Nice room too. BUT.... It is completely lifeless. I have not seen anyone there but the cook and the cleaner though it was apparently full....

“The rooms that face the pool have 2 levels - upstairs is a mezzanine with a bed, while downstairs is a living room with a television and a couch. We think these are the best rooms in the pousada.”
  • Our bed - nice and big, and the room spacious and well appointed.
