My two traveling companions and I had a very nice stay at this pleasant pousada. It is very simple and tidy, and the ladies that run it are laid-back and accommodating. The bathrooms are not charming, but the rooms are spacious and comfortable. It is just a few blocks from two wonderful beaches in the relaxed area of Barra da Lagoa. We were also able to park our rented car inside the gate. Breakfast, with plenty of hot coffee, was always fresh and tasty. Free Wifi access was also very appreciated!

Moved to Barra from Praia Mole because it seemed to have more life. At this time of year the season is over, so we had a good choice of accommodation. The Mar del Este looks very clean and tidy from outside and that was true throughout the buildings. Our room $R160 a night, was well-equipped and included a microwave and some limited cutlery and crockery. There is a nice swimming pool and it’s about 50m to the beach. Staff were very friendly and helpful.
Great beach, river/lake outlet to the sea, forest, etc so lots of places to walk, which we did as the weather was not good. Plenty of restaurants although due to weather most on the beach were closed.

Where do I start?
I went to Floripa for the first time this summer, end of Jan (2013) and I stayed here for 7 days. The owner, Eloy is a really nice and friendly guy - all of the staff here are amazingly nice and welcoming.
The room we had (a friend and I) had two single beds (that's what we requested) but also had a spare single bed in a separate room. It comes with a kitchenette, bathroom, and is very comfortable. The location is great its literally a block's walk from the beach and five seconds away from all of the shops at Barra da Lagoa. Barra is an awesome, relaxed place with very friendly people and there's a tiny beach over the footbridge that has some great night parties.

Over all Barra has a mixed crowd - families, 20-30 somethings, tourists and backpackers, as well as locals. It''s the best place on the island (in my opinion).

Our room included breafast every morning, and the entire place has great wifi connections so communicating with my family back in Aus was no problem at all.

Next time i go back to Floripa I will definitely be staying here and its very affordable accommodation.

Oh there is also a pool and a spa!

Yes, yes, yes, You got the spirit.

That is one of the reasons Florianópolis is called: " The Magic Island".

Come here how may times you want to. It will be a pleasure to have you here again.

Many thanks for you comments.

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
