We stayed at the Pousada Penareia for four nights. It was absolutely perfect. The room is simple, clean, comfortable and the service is four stars! Breakfast is rich and various. There is a large and pleasant common area where you can read and consult books and tourist guides, watch tv or play pool. The Pousada is just behind the Armaçao... More

Very nice refuge, lovely rooms, fantastic location, excellent breakfast. Good quality and value for money. Would like to stay longer, will definitely come back. Good base for trekking and exploring, is more than just a beach holiday location. Hire car advised for freedom of movement although very active local bus service.

If you want a perfect inn with is almost like a hotel with an awesome breakfast, air-conditioned rooms, the sea breeze, the silence of nature and one foot step from the almost private beach of Armação...this is your choice!

We stayed in this little pousada last December. The owner is a very friendly and relaxed guy who lives there as well. Location was perfect as it is in the southern part of the island, the less touristic one, but can be reached by renting a car (strongly advised to move around). The most beautiful beaches can be reached by... More

If you are interested in south Florianopolis, this is definitely the place to stay. It is located on a low-traffic, but beautiful beach and just a short drive to busier beaches. The rooms are excellent, breakfast is great, and the owner is present and helpful with any questions you have about the area, etc. You can even book a private... More

Stayed here for a week in mid December 2013. First the resort, like other reviewers we found it very picturesque and relaxing. The long sweeping Armacao beach was gorgeous for relaxing and walking. We had our dinner out there one night with big waves crashing in and a full moon rising about 10pm over the horizon - amazing. A good... More

I spent with 2 friends of mine some days here in January 2012. Sorry for delay but I really want tripadvisor readers to know about this amazing pousada. Clean, good breakfast, 2 steps from the Armacao Beach (very calm, if you want movida go to Lagoa or Ingleses for example). We paid for a three bed just in front to... More

My wife and I were looking for a quiet spot for the weekend and this place was perfect. The owner, Klaus, speaks English which was very helpful and can be hard to come by in Florianopolis. Klaus and his workers were very friendly, helpful, and accommodating. The rooms are decent sized with a fridge, safe, good shower pressure, etc. The... More
