Arraial do Cabo

NAME: pousada Tanto Mar

WHERE: Arraial do Cabo, Río de Janeiro




LOCATION: at the top of the Pontal do Atalaia, with a spectacular view of the city and the praia dos Anjos. [Google Maps].

THE BUILDING: two houses built on the top of a hill. The main building has a large dining room, kitchen ,reception, a common room and three rooms. The other building hosts the rest of the rooms. There is a swimming pool and a games room with billiards, table football [foosball] and a ping-pong table, as well as a large garden.

THE ROOMS: comfortable, with no outstanding features.

PRICES IN NOVEMBER 2007: We paid R$110 per room per night – prices for the low season.

BREAKFAST: included on the price. Quite good, with the added bonus of taking it from the dining room that overlooks the bay.

FOOD: during the low season the pousada serves no meals; just some frozen pizzas and basic sandwhiches.

RECEPTION: friendly.

OUR OPINION: excellent value for money in Arraial do Cabo. With just two snags. First the pousada is only recommended for those driving a car, you can’t get there walking. You will need the car for absolutely everything, whether you want to have lunch or go to the beach. Second, it is a pousada only recommended for those seeking absolute peace and quiet. No buildings or shops nearby.
