Learning & Fun


If you are looking for a place to relax, practice water sports, reading books on the hammock and enjoy astonishing beaches and views, Pousada Escape is perfect for you! The job isn't so hard to do, but you must be committed, responsible, organized. The owner, Daniel, is a friendly person, and his employees are, most of the time, patient to teach you about the job.
I spent 5 weeks there and had an incredible experience, the guests were always nice to me and I made really good friends, beside that, I literally fell in love with Barra Nova beach and its lagoons.
I recommend to everyone!



Mi experiencia en Escape Pousada fue extraordinaria! El lugar es simplemente hermoso, la tranquilidad y el sonido constante del mar me cautivaron desde el momento en que llegué a Barra Nova. Abrir las puertas del balcón de la Posada y tener el mar en frente no tiene precio! Las tareas eran sencillas y los horarios flexibles. Pude aprender Portugués y mejorar mi Inglés también. Un pedacito de mi corazón se queda con este hermoso equipo, que me hicieron sentir como en casa desde el primer momento! Gracias Daniel, Chris, Mirtes y Jaki por la hospitalidad, espero volver pronto!



:: Pontos POSITIVOS: suporte na chegada | acomodação| alimentação | lavanderia | Barra Nova é um dos lugares mais lindos que já estive | praticar inglês com os hóspedes estrangeiros.

:: Pontos NEGATIVOS: A equipe fixa me pareceu hostil a maior parte do tempo. Um dos sócios, Cristopher, ao chegar de viagem nem ao menos se apresentou. Prestes a minha partida, tive uma experiência infeliz com Daniel – anfitrião, até então bacana! – em que sofri constrangimento, agressão verbal e psicológica ao ponto de formalizar queixa na Polícia Militar.



Tive o prazer de passar um bom tempo com pessoas amáveis, fui bem recebida e tive um bom acompanhamento, o lugar e lindo e cheio de boas energias, passei momentos maravilhosos durante minha estadia, me senti parte da equipe e só tenho a agradecer pela atenção e carinho de todos.
