We spent a week in Aquarela hotel with my 1 year old baby. Staff is amazing, hotel restaurant and location too. In front of the beach, in front of the ferry to Port Seguro. Easy to come and go to Arraial's centre. Rooms have a very clean decoration, perfect to relax. Furthermore, the yoga during in the morning is a must do.

I visit Porto Seguro each year since that is where my husband is from and we frequently visit this hotel to use the beach and beach bar. They have just built a number of new rooms which overlook the sea and have put in another pool, plus a nice area to relax with large wooden sofas with cushions and a perspex wall overlooking the sea. We decided to spend a night their this year and went for a lovely early morning walk alone the beach. Our room was charming and the area outside is full of plants and flowering trees a very beautiful calm place to stay. A lovely place for a family hoilday with some of the rooms sleeping 3, 4 and 5 people.

This is a very nice hotel, nice spacious rooms, very good breakfast. It's right Ina very nice beach and just across the street from the ferry. Take shampoo as the hotel doesn't provide. Food for lunch is pricey but the portions of the hot plates are big!!!

It's a good place to stay, but it's simple. The best thing is that the beach is just behind the hotel. The area around the rooms is very nice with many trees. There is a little but good pool. The staff are very nice. The breakfast is very good. There is a restaurant in the hotel. The hotel is near to the point where you can take the boat (balsa) to Porto Seguro and transportation to the center of the Arraial and the other beaches: Pitinga, Taípe, Trancoso.
