Pousada Piuval is at the beginning of the pantanal, so while it is a great place to see birds- if you have your heart set on a jaguar, you probably won't find it here That said, we had a lovely stay: the room was basic but fine, food plentiful and good, a nice sized pool, and an excellent guide who...

Pousada Piouval is at the gateway to the Pantanal, 10km outside of Poconé down a mostly gravel road (trips to town are awkward). The hotel itself is a strip of about 20 rooms, reception and gift shop, the restaurant, swimming pool, an un-decorated patio, and the ranch part for the animals. The place is kept clean and neat. Three meals... More

This hotel is in the Pantanal, just south of Pocone, and gives you the chance to see the animals and birds without going all the way down the very poor condition Pantanal highway (dirt road, graded very sparingly, with bridges needing repair). The hotel has a pool, good restaurant and organizes safaris by jeep to see the wildlife. Good for... More

This is the first place to stay in the Pantanal. Our room was good, sizeable and reasonably kitted out, and the bathroom smallish but with a decent-sized shower. Hot water took a while to arrive though. The restaurant was quite large and the buffet gave a wide choice. The food was well-cooked and pretty similar to elsewhere - salads including... More

I spent 4 incredible days visiting the Pantanal Norte, starting in Cuiaba. My trip was organized by Brazil Wildlife Expeditions from Cuiaba (I believe they used to go by the name "Eco Explorer" in the past). They arranged my complete itinerary which included airport pick up and drop off, one night at the Holiday Inn in Cuiabå, one night at... More

We stayed two nights at the pousada. The place is well maintained and English is spoken by some of the staf. There is a pool and an a small playground for children. We went on a tractor safari for two and a half hours the first day and were amazed by the beauty and the wildlife. We saw many different... More

We have visited this resort twice and have loved it both times. The staff is very responsive, trustworthy, and gracious. Some speak English. The guides are very informative and know the local fauna and flora. We have visited in both the winter (hot and dry) and summer (cooler and wet) seasons. Both seasons have their advantages. More animals are seen... More

Simple accommodation with a good buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner close to a large lake with wonderful birds both on the property and from the boat. Trip. Internet available in the restaurant area. Delightful staff.

The pousada piuval is a great place in the middle of nowhere, only nature everywhere around. Staff is outstandingly friendly and helpful, waiter during lunch time will be your guide in the afternoon. Everything is quite well maintained (of course, do not expect 5 star hotel service), food is diversified and very tasty. We enjoyed two nights, 3 days, had... More
