Lying in a hammock by pool watching monkeys and humming birds while sipping a passion fruit Caipirinha....bliss. Mata N'Ativa is a set inside the forest, next to a small river. Beautifully designed with a real effort to blend in gives a feeling of tranquility lacking in so many other 'green' pousadas. The owners are extremely knowledgeable about the wildlife and... More

We stayed 4 nights at this "pousada". Our room was close to the kitchen, that is a problem, because in the morning the breakfast preparation causes a lot of noisy. Also the rooms are not well cleaned, so you can feel some bad smell sometimes. And since it is in a beach area inside a nice small forest, humidity is... More

We stayed at Mata N'ativa on our honeymoon in march 2013 and had a wonderful time. The highlights were the proximity to nature, the beautiful tropical garden, the friendly staff and the delicious breakfasts. Over breakfast we could see hummingbirds and monkeys nearby. The holiday was the perfect mix of relaxation and activities. Daniel is an amazing host and was... More

Daniel went out of his way to welcome us. The Pousada is great, the room was nice too and breakfast was excellent. One warning is that it's proximity to the beach means it's a bit of a walk into town - not far, but it's 5 minutes up a very steep incline with no lighting. Borrow a torch and you'll... More

I had a fantastic stay. The pousada is a well oiled operation as Daniel has been running the place for a number of years. Rooms are beautiful, clean and well laid out and they have balconies with the obligatory hammock from which one has a fantastic view of the tropical flora (and the occassional monkey!) in the beautiful gardens. Daniel... More

The hotel has a great little jacuzzi and pool to relax iin. A very tasty breakfast with an array of fresh homemade breads and cakes. Also, a lovely selection of fruit. Also... More

Location is great for both, going to the beach and to the Quadrado, and the pousada itself is amazing. Cozy, chic, yet with a rustic touch and has all kind of facilities. Rooms are spacious and very clean; the property has different kind of tropical trees, plants, birds and monkeys! Staff is efficient and very friendly and the owners really... More

Owners are very nice folks and always helpful, excellent breakfast, clean room and nice swimming pool. We stayed in a room with jacuzzi, which is very well worth it. Overall we liked Mata Nativa. Room and bathroom are spacious and there is a DVD selection that, since we went during a lower season, we used it almost every night. But... More

It is just great to be so close with the nature, at a river bank, close to an amazing beach and just close to the mistic Quadrado of Trancoso. This place gives you a quiet, clean and relaxing environment sorrounded by nature, art and great service. If you look for privacy, nice place and great location, this is the place... More
