Pousada Porto Mare – Our review

Maresias can be deceiving due to its size, but it has a variety of good restaurants, excellent accommodation and fun for those who don't want to miss out on the pampering of the big cities. To enjoy all that the city offers, it is worth opting for a good accommodation with great value for money.

Maresias is one of the most beautiful beaches on the north coast of São Paulo. A 3-hour drive from the capital, the coastal city has attractions of all kinds, especially for those who enjoy contact with nature.

At Canto do Moreira, the five kilometers of white sand beach begin. On a walk, you will discover the different tribes that frequent Maresias, from surfers in the corner of Moreira, to young people who like to party and spend the day near the Parador, to families and couples who want tranquility and prefer to rest in the corner of the river, on the other side of town.

After a day at the beach, visitors can enjoy this holiday atmosphere even more. The small town of Maresias can be deceiving due to its size, but it has a variety of good restaurants, excellent accommodation and fun for those who don't want to miss out on the pampering of the big cities.

To finish and start the next day very well, it is worth opting for a good accommodation with great value for money. Then write down our indication of inn in Maresias to be very well accommodated, whether as a couple, families, a group of friends (as in our case) or even with your beloved pet: a Pousada Porto Mare.

We went as a group to complete the Bertioga-Maresias Relay Ultramarathon and stayed there. After a frantic day, the choice was worth it. Check out our accommodation review:


A four-minute walk from the beach, one of the highlights of the Pousada Porto Mare is your location. It is located at post 8 on the beach and close to the good things in the city center. You can walk to great restaurants such as Badauê, Kanaloa or Central Cafesias, or even end the night enjoying the bar Santo Gole or Sirena. All this without taking the car out of the garage. In addition, the inn has an exclusive parking lot at the inn for guests, which avoids the excessive prices charged at night to stop in the center.

Rooms at Pousada Porto Mare:

The guesthouse rooms are very spacious. All of them have a small balcony, which even without a view add charm to the accommodations. There are options for rooms with very comfortable and large double beds and rooms with single beds. Recently all mattresses in the inn were changed.

The bathrooms are also spacious and have a great shower. Another highlight goes to the ammenities of the products which are an excellent Argan line.

The hotel's master suites are huge, have a whirlpool bath and an even more special decoration.

The inn has rooms with a balcony, in a great location.


Don't expect a continental breakfast like the big hotels, but breakfast is a delight in the Pousada Porto Mare and nothing is missing. In fact, it is one of the positive points that deserve to be highlighted in the inn. During high season and some long holidays, the property offers half-board (breakfast and dinner) to guests.

The service of the inn in Maresias is excellent! The girls at the reception were very attentive, and they even give you lots of tips and tourist information. Upon arrival, we were greeted with chocolates in the room and a welcome letter. They also provide beach chairs and umbrellas for guests!

Attentive reception and service.

Swimming pool, common rooms and external area

The inn has a good common area. The pool combined with the sauna is one of the main attractions. You can dive under glass and enter the sauna without having to leave the pool. However, it is good to note that the pool is not heated and the sauna is not very strong either – this is a positive point in the summer months, but not so much in the winter months.

The inn in Maresias also has a games room with a pool table and other board games (for sure those born in the 80s and 90s will remember their childhood hahaha).

For children, the Pousada Porto Mare has an outdoor playground, TV room with video games and computer.

Porto Mare has a restaurant with the same name open to the public. The dishes are excellent in very generous portions. All this at honest prices. The wait time was good too. It's worth the visit!

Below I will put some suggestions (and I ate each one more than once, just to be sure in the indication hahaha)


The inn offers computers with internet for guests at no cost. The inn's Wi-Fi is free, but at some points it doesn't work.

It is not always easy to find good accommodations that accept our pets. The good news is that the inn is also pet-friendly, just let us know before you bring your pet.


The highlights of the inn are for the location, service, parking, cleanliness and restaurant (including breakfast). The points that are good, but could improve are the Wi-Fi, the cold pool in winter and the sauna that could be stronger.
