I definitely recommend the Pousada for anyone who needs a comfortable simple atmosphere 2 minutes away from the beach. The owner Eloy is so welcoming and is always there to help,which makes you feel at home. The rooms are clean and comfortable and there are plenty of places around where you can enjoy a nice affordable meal. the proximity to the beach facilitates life as you can easily relax after being at the beach and go out again. A really enjoyable stay, would be happy to return another time

Thank you for your review.

I am pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. You are right, being very close to the beach is something our guests love most.

I hope to see you again in the near future.

Barra da Lagoa isn't much removed from the small fishing village that it once was, which is to say that there isn't a wide variety of lodging choices. It's mostly B&Bs, hostels, pousadas, and the like. Given that, Pousada Mar Do Leste must be at or near the top of the bunch. It's just fifty yards from the beach, but what distinguishes the place is the personal care that the proprietor, Eloy, has for the place and his guests. Eloy is everywhere, cleaning the pool, sweeping the deck, offering restaurant tips, arranging transport, straightening up the outdoor furniture. This guy is ON IT, and he's super nice.

Our room was small, but it did include a little ante-room with a table, chairs, microwave, and refrigerator, and the bathroom was spotless. The room was rather non-descript, but that didn't matter because you don't go to Barra Da Lagoa to hang out in the room.

We'd definitely stay there again if we were visiting and the price, at US$125/night, seemed fair given that we were visiting at high season.

Restaurant recommendation: Meu Cantinho. Excellent food with an amazing selection of beers.

Steven,

I got the spirit, Barra da Lagoa really was once an old small fishing village. Maybe this is why
Barra da Lagoa is so charming. And the native people, most of them, are so simple and do love
tourists and foreing people.

I have to thank you very much for your nice words.

Come visit us every time you want to, it will be great to see you again.

I'd definitely recommend this great pousada for a relaxing break. It is just a 2 min walk onto the idyllic beach. Our room was clean and the maid service was great. It was handy to have a microwave, sink and fridge. the pool was kept very clean, but to be honest with such ASN amazing beach on the doorstep it didn't really get much use! All the staff were really friendly and helpful. OK, breakfast could have been a bit more varied, and the air conditioning unit was quite loud, but these are only minor complaints. A great place to stay.

We spent 1 week here between xmas and new year 2011/12 and it was a nice surprise!
The place is simple, but very clean and comfortable, with a nice swimming pool to refresh after the beach.
The location is very convenient, once it's about 100 meters away from the beach, and about the same distance from the village.
There are different sizes of rooms, and since we were in a group of 5 families with kids the rooms could fit families ranging from 2 to 6 people.
Some rooms have passed through renovations and look brighter than the others, but all of them seemed very clean.
Breakfast was varied with different kinds of fruits, juice, bread, cakes , ham and cheese, coffee and milk.
The hotel was nice for a simple beach vacation, and it fullfilled our spectations.
Above all I have to say that the owner, Mr Eloy made it even better. He is a very nice guy who's been very helpful and kind, anticipating our needs and making us all feel as if we were home!

Room tip: rooms in front of the pool had been through renovations, so they are newer
