Santa Clara is a property operated with great taste and care.The owner, Charles, simply made it a place where to feel good, eat natural/family based food and offering great service (access, boat trips etc …). I wish there would be many more hospitality operations operated with that level of care, customer orientation and friendliness. Bravo Charles.

After spending two weeks in Boipebe we spent half our stay at Santa Clara with Charles and the team. You would have thought after years as the go to Pousada on the island they may have rested on their laurels but this is still the benchmark for other Pousada owners. Simple, clean and well appointed rooms that are all very... More

Certainly one of the best places in Boipeba: I just loved it (although there is no view from the rooms). I recommend their restaurant which is absolutely excellent. A perfect moment, a clean room and more than very nice people: they really take care of the guests, making sure they are spending a happy moment.

Santa Clara is lovely! The rooms are really nice, stylish huts with rustic feel! The fans were definitely strong enough so no need for air conditioning. Some have beautiful balcony with hammocks. The grounds felt like a retreat, in the forest but less than 5mins walk to the beach. Breakfast was very filling, loads of different traditional stuff which changed... More

I had the MOST fantastic stay at the Pousada Santa Clara. This hotel is the kind of place you dream about finding.... the small compound is simply beautiful. Lush grounds whimsically decorated with mosaic tiles, garden sculptures, and fountains. I felt like was walking in a secret (tropical) garden! The rooms are great. Sun-drenches bedroom with lace curtains blow into... More

To me Boipeba is the perfect island and Santa Clara is the perfect place to stay. This is the only place in the world where I have returned several times in a row. Santa Clara is a very special place and this is mainly due to Charles and Mark who are the perfect hosts. Mark and his team prepare the... More

We stayed here for 8 nights in August as part of a two-week trip to Brazil. We were looking for a place to unwind in between Rio and Salvador and had heard that Boipeba had beautiful beaches and a relaxed pace. The island was everything we were expecting, and the Pousada was absolutely excellent from top to bottom -- it... More

Charles and his team went out of their way to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. Assisting with all our travel arrangements and day activities, all done with a friendly smile. Food, accommodation, well stocked bar (a rarity on the island), tranquility, service and price, all receive 10 out of 10. Already looking forward to my return trip!!

Pousada Santa Clara is a fantastic choice to stay in Boipeba. The island is full of natural beauty and deserted beaches. Charles, the owner of Pousada Santa Clara is the perfect host. He knows everybody on the island and can help arrange just about anything you want to do. The Pousada itself is well-maintained and beautifully landscaped, just a few... More

I have been waiting to stay at this pousada for over 2 years now and finally just managed to spend 4 nights there with my daughter. What can I say but that it was just as I had expected and much, much more! We had a lot of contact with Charles before we left for Boipeba and he was a... More
