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

A collection of 'bedrroms' set in a lush garden that makes you feel really close to nature. The manager and all the staff were welcoming, helpful and friendly. 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

We stayed at Mata N'ativa for four days during our honeymoon in Brazil and simply loved it. Conveniently located between the Quadrado and the beach and with a small river flowing by it, this is a great pousada to stay in. Pedro, the current manager, was extremely friendly, attentive, and helpful. The entire pousada is nestled in greenery and the... More

Execelent breakfast, cozy, charming, good swimming pool, well located, near excelent beaches and the Trancoso "Quadrado". However, bedrooms are much smaller than they look like on the website and the mattress is old and does not smell good. The hotel should replace them immediately.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Mata N´ativa Pousada is an ecolodge of charm very well located walking distance to the village center and to the beach. It was created in an environmental-friendly concept respecting the existing trees, the local ecosystem and wild live. The owners succeeded in developing this small hotel where you feel overwhelmed by nature. Triage of products, recycling, solar panels and energy system control, are part of our initiatives to lessen our impact on nature. Charming ambiances and attention to details are also key elements. The owners always around will welcome you in person. We organize trips in kayaks, bicycles, horseback ridings, etc. ... more   less
