Pousada Pitinga
Ranked #37 of 129 Arraial d'Ajuda B&B and Inns
Reviewed 11 March 2016

Set in a beautiful place with small chalets in a garden with exotic plants, this is a relaxing place. Each chalet has two rooms in two floors, with a small terrace. The rooms are comfortable, but the air conditioning is noisy and the shower area is not easy to access. The rooms are clean. The staff is very nice. The food at the restaurant is very good.

Room Tip: It's worthy to stay in a room with sea view

This is a stunning hotel and a great, relaxing place to stay. Only minor downside is that the beach in front of the hotel is quite narrow, but there are areas in the hotel above the beach where you can relax. Food was good, service good. Rooms are great, you'd have to be pretty miserable to find anything to moan about here!

I came to the weeding of the brother in law. The rooms are very nice, clean and wide. The terrace is great and the all have a hammock. The restaurant is very good, I recommend the octopus rice. It is a romantic and relaxing place located in an amazing beach. The seas is warm and calm. The hotel breakfast is very good also. Great place to stay in Arraial

Wife and I spent a weekend at Arraial D'Ajuda for our 39th anniversary. We expected the place to be charming and romantic, but were amazed at the fantastic location. Plus the food at the hotel's restaurant was superb. Everything we tried was excellent.
Hotel is right on the beach, and right in front of a reef barrier. As the tide changes the scenery changes as well, along with the waves noise and the sense of smell for the stuff brought from the reefs by the tides. It is as if we had stayed at different places all in one day.
If you have a choice pick a full moon week, when low-high tides are the most different.
Oh, and Arraial the village! Wow, another surprise as well. All the places we ate had really good food, and the mood in the village is great. We will surely be back.

Room Tip: Get a beach front room and if possible be there on a full moon.

We stayed over a week in this hotel. The hotel is placed in a quiet area and direct with view to the sea. It has a fantastic Garden and the facilities are ok but need a Update. It is placed 1,5 km away from the center of Arraial d'Ajuda which is a nice little town but there is needed transport to town.
The rooms are ok and equipped with all what is needed but a little small. Compared to Europe the price would be comparable to a 5 Star hotel, so under this view it is far overpriced. But in total it was a nice stay despite of the above mentioned points. Be aware that the Staff only speak brasilian and only a few phrases in English.

Room Tip: Direct seaview and nice Garden

We decided for this hotel because it makes part of the association "Roteiro de charme". If you arrive at the aiport of Porto Seguro you need a transport service to the hotel (can be combined with the recepetion of the hotel) or you rent a car. The easiest way from Porto Seguro to Arrial d'Ajuda is to take the ferry. IAfterwards it takes some more time driving through the small streets of Arrial d'Ajuda to the hotel, located at the beach of Pitinga at the south end of the village. Unfortunately there is no hotel transport to the center of Arrial d'Ajuda (with all the restaurants and shops), which means that you need a taxi each time with costs of R$20 each simple tour (!). Walking in the dark was not recommended by the hotel staff due to local crime problems.

The hotel property is really charming with a nice and very well treated tropical garden and a lot of coconut trees. There are quite a lot of birds to observe.The pool is small, but nice and the best is that there is no chemical treatment of the water. As a consequence showering before entrance is mandatory. The hotel is located in front of the beach, and it is higher as the beach level. This means stairs are necessary to got down. But this is not bad, because it gives privacy to the hotel guests. Beach sellers rarely come up. It gives also a beautiful view on the sea. The sea is a kind of pool, but with stones and not so nice for bathing, but you can observe from the deck of the hotel the sea turtels, which is wonderful. If someone wants to swim, I would recommend to walk on the beach a little more in direction south (Trancoso), just around the next corner, the beach there is much better for swimming. The hotel owner are on the "green line",with separation of garbage, no acceptance of one-way-bottles etc..

The accomodations are in small, two floor chales, each floor has one appartement with bathroom, individual deck including a hammock and a fridge. Aircondition is also available, unfortunately the old, loud system (one of the reasons why the rating is only very good and not excellent). TV is only available in a common lounge. The cleaning staff is friendly and doing a good job.

The breakfast buffet is great with a good variety of products. The quality of the restaurant is also good, unfortunately it was only open during lunch time.The bar keeper is the best, he did the best Caipirinhas in my life, really especial (and it is not that I never had any before!). I hope that he will continue at the hotel, he is really a add-value to the hotel. His name is Joao. He is gentle and knows about service.

Conclusion: The hotel is very nice, as well as the location. Honeymooners should try it out. We recomend it! There should be done some improvement in the aircondioners, transport to the center and the restaurant mangement could be more flexible with orders (especially if the hotel is not fully booked).

Room Tip: Try the chales in front of the sea
