Recently spent three nights here and couldn't have been happier. The owner was welcoming and gave us a tour when we arrived. Each room is its own mini-house containing bedroom and bathroom. Shower and bathroom were large. Bedroom had a king converted from two twins and A/C and fan. Free breakfast was very good and personally served by the owners.... More

Sitio Sao Francisco is a very beautiful little paradise pousada owned by a very lovely and helpful couple from Argentina. The rooms are beautifully furnished and contain everything you need.

We, my husband and I planned our holiday early 2013. Our 2 daughters were going to a few of the World Cup games, and were coming from... More

What a place. The owners (yogis and avid design lovers) are friendly and wonderfully warm. A special place to come retreat fro summer. The resident dog is a sweetheart too. The rooms are simple and clean with creative elements giving it a personal touch that no big resort could ever have. The breakfasts are ample and the beach loungers plenty!... More

A lovely small hotel with a relaxing ambiance. Its an ideal place to chillout, paint, chat, throw dinner parties. Each individual chalet style room or appartment has been individually decorated for the personal touch. The owners Mile and Teo and their staff offered fantastic, warm and friendly service. Highly recommend a stay there. Watch out for their new web site... More
