We have stayed here 4 times, each time with other families. There are two pousadas on the property, this one Bora Beach which is apartment style (we always rent 2 bedrooms with 2 full baths, living room, kitchen and balcony with traditional brazilian bbq) and Bora Bora which is hotel style. The two operate together like one large pousada. Each have their own lobby but you can check it at either and have to go to the Bora Bora front desk for beach towels. On the property there is a spa (but I've never seen it in use), a small unsupervised kids area (for very young kids), a games area (good for rainy days), a breakfast buffet (the best we've ever had at a Brazilian pousada, and we have had many), a sushi restaurant (very good) and at the beach another restaurant that serves typical Brazilian food (either while you sit on the beach or up on the deck). The property is right on the beach but most rooms either do not have a view or have a small view. The beach is beautiful and the pousada is located at the Northern end, which is the best. Beach chairs and umbrellas are free to use at the beach for guests, and the waiters will bring you food and drink and take care of you all day. The staff is excellent and always have at least one person on duty that speaks English. Comparing to the cost of accommodations in Brazil (which is not cheap), this place offers great value for your $$ spent. We have brought many different friends with us, and all have loved the experience.

The last time we visited there were many new shops and restaurants on the main road, which we think is due to the construction of the main road on the neighbouring beach, Bombas. In the past I would say restaurant and shopping variety could be improved, but this last visit showed that it has. There are also many many beaches in this area that you can drive to and explore, although Bombinhas is our personal favourite.

Room tip: If you enjoy sitting outside in the evening, request a room with a large balcony, as some of the rooms have very tiny balconies that can only fit 2 people.

Location cannot be beat - right at the beginning of Bombinhas Beach. All rooms completely renovated in July 2012, so the interiors are in really good shape. Most rooms are located along a long corredor that leads from the street out to the beach. There is a patio entry for each room on one side and a door-entry on the other. Our accommodations had one bedroom with AC and flat-screen TV, a pretty nice bathroom which was roomy except for the space in front of toilet, and a living room with faux-leather sofa bed, flat-screen TV, and a mini-kitchen. The patio has a small, round table with two chairs. We had a Sunday afternoon lunch there and it was a nice spot for it.

There are a couple privacy issues. The craftsmanship on the interior doors of our apartment was not done right, so neither the bedroom door nor the bathroom door shut properly. They were too big for the door jamb. Oops. Also, there was an awful lot of foot traffic right outside both the patio and the front door, and people can see right into your rooms.

No cable TV, and the signal was very poor. Don't come here if you want to watch TV. Wireless internet was reliable, but slow. Don't come here to surf the internet. There is a bar/restaurant right on the beach that is great. We spent a couple hours of our Saturday afternoon there. Nice spot.

Breakfast is great. It is served in a second-floor room with large windows with street views. It is a very pleasant space. Staff are very helpful. We would return here.

Prezado Sipled,

Somos realmente muito gratos por todos os seus comentários ! Como você pôde perceber,os apartamentos foram reformados pouco antes de sua vinda, e esse problema da porta de banheiros e quartos só foi possível resolver agora em época de baixa estação. Quanto a intensa movimentação no corredor que da acesso a praia, acaba ocasionando o barulho e um pouco de falta de privacidade aos hóspedes que estão nos apartamentos do térreo, mas esse problema vamos em breve amenizar instalando um isolamento acústico nas janelas e portas dos quartos e quando temos a oportunidade de conversar e sugerir os apartamentos aos hóspedes, temos o cuidado de direcionar casais sem filhos na parte de cima - primeiro andar, ou nos outros blocos, deixando assim esses do térreo para casais com filhos pequenos que o preferem pela proximidade da areia. Quanto ao sinal da tv a cabo, trocamos o plano para melhoria de sinal e atendimento, assim como o da WIFI.

Nos mantemos a disposição

Grata

Lis

This is really a nice place to stay! The location just in front of the beach is wonderful, It was really relaxing to sleep hearing the waves from the sea!
The breakfast is nice too, with homemade breads and pies. The staff is also very friendly and always willing to help.
The apartment have a separate room with a double bed. The living room/kitchen has a sofa which turns into two single beds, a dining table, a sink, a refrigerator, microwave and cable tv.
There's also a barbacue in the balcony.
Tks for the nice stay!

Room tip: Closer to the sea.
