I never write reviews, but the warmth of our host Marina compels me to do so. If you want to lose yourself in the mountains, whilst being thoroughly looked after by warm and welcoming local people, stay here! Definitely recommend staying in one of the cabins. The yellow one is the best :) Some great treks too of course! The... More

We loved our short stay here. So peaceful and friendly with stunning views everywhere you look. We spent a day in the national park which is just a few minutes walk away and loved it. A great place to unwind.

The decent reviews attracted attention but reality was just average. Very attentive management, impressive scenery, and good food in the restaurant, but very underwhelming room, and cramped simple bathroom disappointed. Additionally were asked to sign a list of "rules" upon checkin (ie checkout at noon, etc) and charging for DVDs not helpful. Finally, would not open the restaurant doors before... More

Excellent stay, wonderful food and hosts, perfect for bird watchers. Bernado in particular was amazingly knowledgeable and helpful- nothing was too much trouble. Would recommend highly- expect to gain a few pounds with the excellent food.

The pousada was not at all what we expected, in a wonderful way. After reading the initial reviews and website, we expected a "high end luxury" pousada and were pleasantly surprised at the simple beauty of this pousada. The pousada is set in the mountains right at the entrance to the Serra dos Orgãos National Park. We were given a... More

This is primarily a sports / adventure hotel. I was upgraded to their top suite that has superb views down the valley and of the surrounding mountain tops; this hotel is situated rather like MachuPicchu close to the top of a mountain. Dinner was OK; breakfast was excellent – a wide range of fresh fruit and breads, yoghurt, bacon omelette,... More

The pousada is located at one of the most beautiful spots in the Petropolis mountains. Very close to the Serra dos Orgãos National Park, with its river baths, waterfalls and tracksfor all levels. The staff is helpful and friendly. The cuisine is very good and the chalets are cosy and clean.

They deliver everything they promise and the place is naturally so beautiful there's not much needed for one to feel good. This is a place for those who like to be close to nature, but appreciate some comfort. Their restaurant is very good, so no need to go anywhere in search of food. However, if you feel like going out,... More

The pousada is in almost in a different world set in the mountains of the national park, yet only about 90km from Rio de Janeiro beaches. The chalets are nice, the restaurant has a good selection of food and wines, and above all, the staff is very positive, cheerful and interested in making sure you have a good holiday. We... More

A real find. A magical hillside home. The vibe is discreet sophistication rather than hipster affectation. Food and drink are excellent. Come here to explore the national park, or to write your next novel. But don't tell everyone about it. Don't be put off by a long, bumpy rough road leading to it.
