Where to stay in Saquarema

Most of Saquarema's accommodations concentrate on the lagoon's southern edge. Choose from costlier hotels with plenty of amenities, simple accommodations like bed and breakfasts, and budget hotels. Prices and levels of luxury tend to increase with proximity to the water, whether the lagoon or the sea. Head out of town a bit to the east or west for simpler, less expensive beachside rooms.
