I have been in many pousadas in Bahia and this is for sure one of the best I have visited.
All rooms have A/R, a beautiful view to the swimming pool, the breakfast is fantastic!!!
Strategic position closed to the center!

First of all let me say that this place should not be classified as a Hotel, but more like a Bed and Breakfast. The location of the property is good, near the centre of Arraial D'ajuda, and a 20 minute walk to the beach down a steepish road. The room i had has included a double bed, private shower and toilet, small refrigerator, ceiling fan, air conditioner and safe. The room also had many issues with bugs including many mosquitos, ants, spiders (non venomous ones) and also a lizard which would run around the room at will. I dont usually mind insects except mosquitos which i chased around the room on occasion and also was bitten many times. I hope i dont get Zika... The reason for the many bugs were two. One, the cleaners are not thorough at cleaning the room and only do a quick once over. The owners a mother and son team, who are nice, live on the compound, unfortunately they do not check the quality of the rooms including the cleanliness. Also two light globes were not working in the room, goes to show a general lack of attention to detail overall. The second reason for the insects, is that the room does not have glass pane windows, and has many gaps and entry points for insects to enter the room, including a big gap under the door, big ventilation gap in the bathroom and the lack of sealable windows. Apart from that, the wifi does not work in the room and is only available in the lobby area and sometimes works at a slow rate and sometimes doesn't work at all. Breakfast was very basic and included in the price. Also the staff did not change the towels often and the only toiletries they had was one bar of soap which they did not replace once used up. They did luckily replace the toilet paper. Hence, why i dont think this place should be classified as a hotel. Also on occasion once the staff would clean the room, they would leave the key on the door. Not that anything got stolen, but i think it leaves the door open for this to happen. On another note, to get to Arraial D'ajuda, you can take a taxi to the ferry "Balsa", taxi costs around 30-40 reais, take the ferry across, costs under 5 reais, and then take the local bus, costs under 5reais or a taxi, around 40reais to the centre of Arraial D'ajuda. If you are looking for a comfortable place to stay, i would look at other places or alternative accommodation. There are Pousadas, literally everywhere you look in Arraial D'ajuda, possibly some nice hotels too.
I hope this review is helpful :)

Dear Customer,

First of all let me say I hope you are not upset because I didn't let your female friend get into the hotel with no ID at 3 o’clock in the morning, but everybody should know that our hotel does not allow such things.

Unfortunately there are many mosquitoes in in sea places because of the humidity, so, even if all the room gaps are plugged with mosquito nets, sometimes is not sufficient. That’s why I’m sorry you didn’t told us about mosquitoes otherwise we could give you the liquid electric mosquito repeller, as we usually do with all guests.

An important thing, fortunately for now we have not seen the tiger mosquito ( the one capable of carrying the Zika virus) so you should be back home safe and sound!

Also as it regards the bulbs, even if one burned out and you had many lights on the room, you could just tell us to replace it as we did as soon as you left after checking the room.

About the cleanliness we have no complaints because our staff thoroughly cleans everyday, change the towels every other day, and changes the sheets every 2 days (as suggested by the Brazilian ecological guidelines). Our staff certainly do not take away the geckos (not lizards), the symbol of Arraial, and man's best friend because they eat mosquitoes.

As regards the complaints on the internet you're right, the Arraial connections are slow (around 2Mbit). Every time I come from Italy I have to get used to, but while the smartphone loads a video I look around and I realize how beautiful is this place! However I do not understand why there are no other people who have complained...you were spending two hours every morning on youtube occupying all the available bandwidth, sitting alone on the 4 people table! :)

Anyhow if you will come back to go to Arraial we will be happy to accommodate you again to show you how much we improved. After you left we replaced all the old air conditioning with modern split, and we replaced the old TVs with new LED TV!

I stayed there with my 5 people family in January 2015. It's an incredibly well decorated art hotel, super cozy and chic at the same time. The location is excellent, only 2 blocks away from the main street of Arraial D'Ajuda, where there are many restaurants. It's also close to some really cool beaches, as well as Trancoso (a near trendy city with paradise-like beaches - it's like 1h30 by car). It's a very quiet and safe place, and the hotel has a 24h security guard at the front door. We arrived sometimes as late as 3am and he was there prompt to open the gate.

The pool is always clean and beautiful. The breakfast is the highlight. My family eats a lot, so it was kind of a big deal to us. It's fresh everyday with breads the owner makes herself, daily. It had crepes one day and it was wonderful. There is always a great variety of fresh fruits and juices, a different one everyday.

The bedroom was nice and cleaned everyday, with new fresh towels and clean sheets. The room was spacious ever for 5 people, since it had a kind of second floor. The water was always hot and with good pressure, but the drain didn't have a good output, so by the time we finished our showers there were water dripping to the living room. The room had a good a/c. It wasn't the quietest but it didn't disrupted any of out nights.

The owners were so very kind and helpful. They always wanted do chit chat and always had tips of where to go, nice places to eat, quieter beaches etc.

I would 100% recommend this hotel and can't wait to go back there, this time with my boyfriend, since it's also a romantic place.

I highly recommend this pousada in the heart of arraial d' ajuda.The room is very clean and the shower is heated by solar heat which always is hot.The breakfast is fantastic they have acerola juice and many types of homemade bread.The owner Luzia is so warm and helped me so much with any need that arose.She really cares about the guests and their comfort.She speaks fluent french and Italian .The internet connection works very well and is fast.The room also had a great fan and the hotel is very peaceful so everyone can get a good nights sleep.The location of the pousada is ideal close to all the restaurants but far away enough to be quiet The staff is also wonderful and very kind in every way.They also have night security 24 hours and the night attendant Alex was very helpful and friendly.This hotel is one of the best in arraial d' ajuda for the price which was very reasonable.The pool was always clean and has jets to help relax after a day at the beach.You will be pleased and comfortable here.

When you walk in it is like entering another world. I have never seen anything like it in all my travels. The art jumps out at you from every corner and mixes in in a kaleidoscope of beauty. There are these crystals placed all over the place that supposedly have healing properties. I have to admit we felt great after staying there just a few short days. Every room is unique and has a story to tell. The village is cute with some great beaches around it but me and my wife would definitely return just to go stay at Aos Sinos dos Anjos.
