I do not like to talk badly about people or places, trying to live by the maxim my mom taught me that "when I do not have something nice to say, say nothing" but this place demands that I speak up. My partner made the reservation here as we needed a break from the big city madness of Rio. It... More

I stayed in Sitio doLobo because I had seen amazing pictures about the place. I am Brazilian myself and thought I could save some money to go to this special place with my partner. Even though the place can be very beautiful to look at, there is not much to do apart from reading a book and being entertained by... More

My husband and I stayed at Sitio do Lobo for our honeymoon and we couldn't have been more let down. The rooms were small and uncomfortable but the larger problem was the filth and stench of sewage. The owner was rude and treated his employees with disrespect which was uncomfortable and unsettling to watch. You're nickel-and-dimed for everything including an... More

I was there a while ago but after reading the other comments I must add mine. The owners only care about money!!!!!!!!! The service was terrible, the staff not interested, don`t go unless you have to.

Sitio do Lobo is not what we expected at all. If you are in the mood for a bed and breakfast feel this could be your place. Dinner was included and it was served buffet style and you had no say in what you ate. You are very isolated no town to walk to and the water taxi ride can... More

I've been quite a few times to Sitio do Lobo, and all I can say is that it's a stunning place, that makes you feel instantly relaxed. This is a small pousada, totally secluded, that can only be reached by boat, and the setting is absolutely gorgeous. Every time I come here I can't help but think how come a... More

We stayed at Sitio do Lobo for 4 days at the end of our holiday in Brazil. We had read some excellent reviews of the pousada but had also seen the less than flattering recent reviews on Trip Advisor so we arrived with some trepidation. We were met on the jetty by Juca who runs the pousada on behalf of... More

We spent a few days here before Christmas in 2006. We had a cute little room overlooking the ocean. The view was amazing - but the mosquitos were horendous. The room was mostly open, and there were no screens on the windows. We had to close all the doors and windows and roast at night - as 2 of the... More

The setting is amazing! but... The staff and especially the family who own the place are unbelievably rude and money grabbing. Prices for things seem to change on a daily basis yet always extortionate. Don't get me wrong for quality I'm happy to pay but everything here is done like its a special favour for you and quality is very... More
