“Nice but simple”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 December 2011

It's the closest hotel to the boat docks (to and from Porto Seguro) and even so with the van service across the street (communitary 'cabs') you can reach the night life, restaurants and lovely shopping alleys of Mucuge Street in 20 minutes or so!The beach is nice but with coarse sand and the hotel has beach service. Small rooms a little musty but ok for a few days if you're NOT allergic. No blinds at nich so it will be a light room at night, bring sleeping mask and you'll be ok. Nice but simple breakfast buffet within the sea view and the pool area which is a nice touch. Nice staff.

Room Tip: Weak knees = beware af the wodden stairs and ask for a level ground room.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2011

Last year I spent a week in the Aquarela Praia hotel with my partner. We had not had a holiday for a while and we needed a relaxing time.
The room we were given was comfortable and of a good size. The service was good and the members of the staff were friendly and professional.
For a week we could forget the stress of our life in London and just relax: walking along the beach, reading, eating good food.
Porto Seguro and Arraial are really nice places to visit.

Should we go to Brazil again, definitively we would have to stop there.

A real little piece of heaven.
This is a cosy, brilliantly managed hotel.
Having breakfasts my my feet on the beach send. Great food, fresh, clean and well presented room. amazing people that makes you feel like home.

Spotless staying and unforgettable holidays.
A quick tip: Try the "moqueca de camarao". It's delicious!
