This Pousada lays by the water surrounded by the jungle and close to a very nice beach, Das Palmas. You also find tracking paths to other beaches eg Lopez Mendes and to main town Abrao. Can really recommend this family runned Pousada! They pick you up at the mainland, Concecao De Jacarei, if you want and can help you book... More

We are not picky travellers but this place really scraped the bottom. In our reservation it said "partly sea view" - we had no sea view, however that was the least of our problems. The room was extremely tiny and we could hardly find a spot for our luggage. The bed was horrible. On the one side it felt like... More

I booked here with my wife (in our late 20's) based on the reviews on tripadvisor. It turned out to be the worst place we stayed at in Brazil and we really can't understand the good reviews it has received after staying there. We are not fussy travellers, but the 2 things we expect from all hotels/ b&bs is cleanliness... More

The pousada offers beautiful views of the ocean and beach. Rooms were clean and very quiet. Meals were very good, with lots of fresh fruit for breakfast. The hosts were very helpful in arranging transportation for us to and from the pousada. Great snorkling off the dock in front of the pousada. The spectacular Lopez Mendez beach is about an... More

Tapera das Palmas was exactly the right choice for us. We were looking for a relaxing place and found it there. Friendly staff, an almost family-like atmosphere, a perfect location between Abrao and Lopes Mendes beach, and probably the best Caipirinha we had during our trip to Brasil.

I stayed with 5 friends, Jean-Louis and his wife were very welcoming. The view is incredible and Palmas is a great location since it is midway between Abraao (principal village) and Lopes Mendes (on of the most beautiful beach inilha grande). Bruno

We stayed here for three nights in April 2010 and had a great stay. It was really nice to stay somewhere 'off the beaten track' and away from the tourist area. You can wonder to the local beach, swim or kayak off their jetty or wander to the famous Lopez Mendes beach, which is 45 minutes away on a clear... More

My wife and I stayed here for 5 days during our honeymoon. We loved it! The view from our room was like a screen saver, just incredible. Honestly one of the best most relaxing places we stayed in in our 3 months in South America. BUT. Not for everyone. It is not in the main tourist area, that's what we... More

The reviews on tripadvisor encouraged us to book here, but I really wouldn't reccomend it. the owners are friendly but the location is very average (tucked away in a bay) and the room are very dirty and run down with threadbare sheets. We even had cockraches crawl out from under them! That is not to say it is all bad,... More
