Recently we decided to head to Bombinhas for a long beach weekend before the weather turns too cold. We found a cute and reasonably priced hotel, also called a pousada in Brazil, called Pousada Vila do Coral. We found this hotel on booking.com (affiliate link).
We quickly fell in love with Pousada Vila do Coral and can’t wait to return! We chose a double room. The room was spacious by Brazil standards and the bed was the largest and most comfortable king size bed we had slept in for a long time!
The bathroom was also spacious with a shower that had amazing water pressure. You see, at our house in Brazil, our water pressure is lacking, so we enjoyed the strong water pressure of the hotel shower! There was also plenty of space to spread out our toiletries, not to mention the hotel provided many toiletries too.
We had a balcony facing towards the pool and we were able to get a slight view of the ocean. We enjoyed the nice sea breeze each night from our balcony. The only thing that would have made our stay nicer would be if we had a room directly facing the ocean.
The receptionists were friendly and they were able to provide us with directions to a restaurant and gave us a good overview of the hotel at check in. The maids cleaned our room spotless daily and provided us with new beach towels each day. This is key if you are staying on the beach, because sand has a tendency to get everywhere. The worst is when it gets in your bed, but we had no such issues because the maids did an impeccable job.
The Pousada Vila do Coral offers many great amenities that we thoroughly enjoyed. They had a nice gym, as well as an indoor pool for the rainy days, or to help parents’ coral their kids. The Pousada offers free parking on site. We felt safe leaving out stand up paddle board strapped to the roof of our car in their parking lot, which is monitored by video camera. The Wi-Fi worked great and was fast. It even reached as far as the beach, so we could post photos to our Facebook page and didn’t have to wait.
They serve breakfast until 10a.m. each morning and it was included in the rate of the room. This was one of the best hotel complementary breakfasts we’ve had so far! They offered a buffet full of fresh fruit, bread, several different types of jam, eggs, and all kinds of other delicious Brazilian breakfast foods. The coffee was fresh and great, as well as the fresh fruit juices they offered.
They also had an amazing outdoor pool with a swim up pool bar that offered all kinds of delicious snacks and beverages. We enjoyed the cold beer and pina coladas! The Pousada Vila do Coral sits on the beach and the staff hand out free chairs and umbrellas as you walk to the find a spot on the beach. And speaking of the beach, it is one of the most amazing and beautiful stretches of Brazilian beach that we have seen so far! The water is a bright emerald green and so clear you can see fish swimming. The hotel also sits conveniently between two beach restaurants that serve excellent seafood and the waiters will bring your food and drinks right to you on the beach.
The entire experience was top notch! We couldn’t have asked for a better beach weekend. To make things even better, the receptionist at Pousada Vila do Coral offered us free late check-out, or the option of paying a little extra to stay until 6p.m. and have full use of all the amenities and the room. We opted to pay a little extra and it was the icing on the cake to have an extra-long beach weekend! We cannot wait to return to Bombinhas and when we do, we plan to stay at the Pousada Vila do Coral again.
