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...

I stayed here as part of a G Adventures tour, and was very pleased with this place. I stayed in chalet #2. The little chalets are amazing. I've never stayed in a place like this and I loved it. You do have to pay for AC, but it wasn't that much. Bugs were not too bad even with the windows... More

Friendly staff, a decent location a 2 mins walk for the beach and dock. Rooms are basic and the beds were quite hard but the bedroom and bathroom were very clean and the water pressure in the shower was good. We had a BBQ there one night which was tasty. Wifi was poor. Very slow connection. There is much better... More

Mata Nativa.. What can I say? I really loved this place! :) We stayed there for 3 nights and had a little house with 4 beds just for the two of us. There's not so much space inside, but everything was clean and that's the most important thing. The area of Mata Nativa is so beautiful.., there are so many... More

I read few comments here and it's kinda difficult to believe how bad their stay was. I stayed at Chale #6 and it was so good. First of all, the chale's really cute, enough space for 2 ppl, the bed's big enough for european people unlikely all other brazilian standard beds (although it wasn't very comfortable but good for those...

We stayed here as part of gap adventures and what a dive!!!! There were some nice open fresh smelling rooms that we were not a part of, instead they accommodated us in a small urine smelling dive of a room up the back of the property. When we complained about it we were told that this was the smell of... More

After staying at another place, which did not have an electricity generator we ended up here in hope for a warm shower and some light. We stayed for 4 nights- POS: the rooms are nice and clean, interior is modern and functionally. The hot shower is not quite as hot, but at least not col. As mentioned the place has... More

First impressions are of a tropical paradise - A-frame bungalows in lush gardens. However, I didn't stay in one but in a shared room in the main block. These can best be described as spartan. A single dingy overhead light was too dim to read by. There was a ceiling fan with optional a/c. The bathroom was small and a... More
