Spent 5 days at the pousada in April 2012 with family of 8 people. Extremely friendly, very serviceminded staff. Very comfortable if you want to see beaches north of Salvador but don't want to go to Praia da Forte, which is waste of time. Quiet neighbourhood and chance to mingle the locals.

The pousada is not in the center of Itapoan, so it is a quiet place, close to the airport (15 minutes by taxi, which cost around 30,- R$) The rooms are cosy and clean, the...

We have been visiting Bahia for several years now. Encanto de Itapoan has proven to be the perfect place. The staff is always polite, helpful, and has the information we need for our treks around the area. The owners, Octacilio and Janet, are caring, friendly, and genuine (they even saved my life when my appendix burst). We enjoy our restful...

I HIGHLY recommend Pousada Encaton de Itapoan, and this is coming from a female traveller who often travels alone. I only had two days in Bahia and my flight left the second day at 3AM from Salvador.
