Not sure why there are negative reviews here. This place is truly amazing. Staying here felt like a privilege. Like I'm seeing a piece of beautiful untouched earth. I feel soon this area will be ruined by tourist demand so better to enjoy while you can. I stayed at the barlovento side and it was amazing.
Luiz is a fantastic cook. They use local things and it was amazing. I fell asleep listening to the ocean waves which was amazing. Only four rooms so you feel quite alone as not many guests. Pretty much a solo beach although you can't swim. Downsides are shared bathrooms for three of the rooms and no pool but the setting is so amazing that you don't care. Thank you for your hospitality. You made an experience I hope to never forget.
Also, another guest had their birthday during their stay and they baked a cake for him. Was so sweet. Words can't describe how lovely it is. Staff leave at 8 so you have the place to yourself. Not a 5* service experience but who needs it when the place is so perfect
