I really enjoyed my stay at Mata Nativa. I stayed here as part of the G Adventures tour I was on and my room-mate and I were given one of the little chalet's. The chalet's are basic but cute and have a hammock on the porch, which was great to chill out on. The location of the hotel is pretty... More

Spent 2 nights here as part of a G Adventures trip. I was very happy with this hotel. I think if you get a chalet it's better than one of the other rooms. We had a little chalet and it was lovely. Our room was very clean, a decent size and quite cute. Staff were all very nice to us.... More

We stayed here during a trip with Gadventures and weren't super impressed. We were hoping for one of the chalets but were given a smaller standard room. Our room was clean and there was a well-stocked minibar in a little fridge in the room with decent prices. We did hear that not all the rooms had the mini fridge in... More

Stayed here for part of gadventures trip. My experience was not as bad as fellow reviewers. We had a couple guys collect our bags from the dock. My room was basic but had a cute little hammock on the balcony. Wifi was fine in the common area. You had to pay for air con but I left my fan on... More

The woman was nicer than most of the reviews suggested. The rooms were nice, clean, good showers & the aircon was no extra cost & worked well. We also enjoyed the breakfast. Also the little swimming pool was pretty nice too. Overall we enjoyed the hotel & would definitely stay again

think one needs to take all the reviews into consideration. Yes, the owner could be a little more friendly, and yes, there is a stupid rule about not putting your stuff in the fridge, and no lift / elevator gasp! In the end it's clean and comfortable in a decent location. They have wifi that works well in the common... More

Stayed here with G Adventures (which I also would not recommend at all) for 2 nights. Firstly the lady at reception was unbelievably rude! Really unhelpful when we asked about the rooms and breakfast, started off badly and didn't get much better. We had rooms on the top floor but there was no lift so had to drag heavy suitcases...

rooms are adequate, clean and comfortable: when I stayed, I didn't need a/c which has an extra charge; bathroom a bit small, but serviceable... town attractions / beaches are all walkable from pousada.

We stayed here for 2 days with Gap Adventures. The huts are cute and are semi detached, so at first glance I was very happy. But, they make you pay for AC, safety deposit box, and have very strict rules. There are some ponds on the property around the chalets, and they were breeding spots for mosquito. The first night...
