I stayed at this pousdaa in March for a 3 days. I was considering renting an apartment but decided to go against it, since all apartments I found looked either in bad condition or were located all the way in the busy north. I loved the location, since it's close to the airport (about a 15min ride) and right next... More

The good news: friendly staff, lovely garden, short walk to the beach, quiet surroundings The bad news: WAY overpriced during high season, a real rip off since they only told us about the extra price after we had confirmed and the rest of the island was full! Extra charges for every little thing, massive condo complex going up about 2... More

Let´s start with the bad news: We are an Eco Lodge - It means that the pousada has as it basis, the sustainability concept for it’s activities development. To understand the real meaning of the place you want to stay, before you choose it, is very important. On this context, we allow those who stay here to have the opportunity... More

The staff at Tamarindo are awesome. Alex and Alexandre are very nice and accomodating and speak english. The location is great if you like tranquility. It is within walking distance to Compeche Beach which is one of the most tranquil beaches on the island. It is also close to the Rio Tavares bus terminal which is the terminal you need... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at Vila Tamarindo for the weekend and it was great. The location was ideal and away from the more commercialized areas in the Northern part of the Island. Even though there is noise during the day I wasn't bothered because the staff was very helpful in recommending different activities all over the island. Overall a... More

I know it's not their fault but a huge condo is being built 20 meters from the lodge walls, so for the next 6 to 8 months, if you want to stay here, be prepared to wake up with construction noise at 7.30 am. Not what you have in mind when you book a Eco Lodge for a whole week...... More

In regards to the noise of the construction 20 meters away, it is in the process of finishing. By Novemeber it should be ending, and is going to bring better development to Campeche beach. It is a five star condo right on our property that will bring improvement to the area. Thankfully the Pousada maintains a beautiful view of the... More

My boyfriend and I spent 2 nights at Pousada Vila Tamarindo when visiting Florianopolis and we just loved the place. Chica, the hostess, is very friendly and recommended us a wonderful schooner trip (see pictures). We stayed at "Ocean Suite" from where we could see Campeche beach. It was very comfortable, with TV, DVD and air conditioning. Also, the breakfast... More

It´s a great place. The pousada is very peacefull, near to the beach and very well located in the Island. A taxi from the airport takes less than 15 minutes and coast R$ 25,00 reales. Lagoa, where you can find good restaurants and night life is 10 minutes by car from the pousada. The Ocean suite where I stayed is... More

We receive people from all over the world and I can tell that at least 95 % like to stay with us. Of course that it's hard to please everybody. Campeche beach is a great place to stay, mainly for the lovers of nature. At the moment people start to discover it, so some constructions are being done around. Precisely... More
