I had been 2 times in Itacaré, and all these times in Posada Casa das Aroeiras, the last time for 1 month! The owners are friendly and one of them is the architecture of this charming bed and breakfast.
It´s clean and organized, good breakfest and easy access to the beach and the city centre. Beautiful garden where sometimes you can see little monkeys, birds... Cosy atmosphere. Good price.
Pousada Pouso da Terra is situated 100 meters from the beach Praia da Concha and only one minute from the small town centre. It is hidden in a tropical garden where you can see monkeys and birds. The place is perfect for those who want to relax.
In the morning they serve delicious tropical breakfast. The stuff is nice and if you are lucky you may even meet a Dutch owner Miriam. She is really friendly and helpful with the information regarding beaches, surfing, restaurants and nightlife. Besides portugues she speaks english and dutch.
The place have four simple apartments for up to five people. All apartments have a veranda with hammock, ceiling fan and bathroom. There is also a house which you can even rent for a longer period.
PS I've just looked it up in the Internet and it seems that the place doesn't exist anymore :(
3 sleepless nights in an old bed with worn out mattress, smell of sewage around my room....
2 times the price of other pousadas in the area.
Do not be fooled by the pretty website.
Old small swimming pool, more of a water tank..
Large tour groups on tour packages.
Lots of noise
We Stayed at The Pousada Vira 1st May 2006 for 10 nights. We would highly recommend this Pousada. Although in low season, the temperature in Itacare was around 30 degrees or so. We had a very relaxing time. You get a hammock to lie about in on a terrace, ours overlooked a massive palm-tree, the balcony overlooked the pool. The pool is visited by little birds, its idyllic. The breakfasts are varied and there's a selection of meats, cheeses, cakes, fruit, cereals, fruit-juices. This Pousada is only about a year old. The people who are working there were very helpful and friendly, we were the only non Brazilian tourists staying at Vira Canoa at the time and we needed some help with translation. In the room there was HBO Films in English with Portuguese subtitles. We had contacts for the local eco tourism office, with whom we arranged a trip to the Marau Pennisula.
We booked through a friend, whose wife is a Brazilian Travel Agent. There didn't appear to be any reviews that I could find for this Pousada but it is quite new, the web-site is extensive and there are lots of photographs so take a look.
The rooms are beautiful and the linen smells wonderful.
There is a lovely pool in meticulously maintained gardens.
The shower was good and the bed came with a mosquito net.
The air-conditioning was very good.
The bar serves wonderful snacks and I can recommend the cocktails (particuarly the ones containing coconut and condensed milk!).
One of the best people I met in Brazil were in this hostal, from the staff to the people who was renting a bedroom there.
Jefferson, his little brother and Newton will help you on everything, not only in the hostal, you can ask them anything about the town and they?ll help you.
The bedrooms are clean, with TV and fridge.
The breakfast is included in the price, and is excelently cooked by Newton.
The prizes are between 20/15$R.
Well, as the couple who own this lovely place describe it as a 'Posada in the rainforest'. But its walking distance to the beaches. Which most things are in Itacare. However I enjoyed this, over a different Posada I stayed in because of the owners. The wonderful breakfast they serve you in the morning is set on a rustic but very clean table right beside the rainforset. The little monkeys will come to watch you eat. The owners were very friendly and the rooms were always clean.
As Posadas go, they are not offered for their great ammenities. They are cheap. We had mosquito nets, a warm shower, and clean sheets. There is a lot of foliage around the place, so a sence of privacy was achieved. The food was fresh, great fruit, warm coffee, fried bananas!
