We have been there from May 22nd and left May 28th. What a place !!!! You can sleep with the sound of the weaves, and wake up with the sound of fishermen. Beautiful beach Lagoinha , green water and the buildings around are mostly houses. This pousada in one edge of the beach on a " morro" sloap, you can... More

This little Pousada is absolutely stunning. Driving there we came through a quiet district, which was a little run-down and began to wonder if the place wouldn't be as nice as it had looked when we booked it… we needn't have worried and as soon as we arrived any doubts were instantly dispelled. The staff were amazing, every single one... More

Pousada da Vigia makes you feel home. Small hotel, ran by two nice ladies, always available, was formerly state of Santa Catarina governor's summer house. So think about a classic big beach house, split into apartments to fit a hotel and you are at Vigia. Start with the beach, a wonderful small family beach at north area of Florianopolis. Place...

Pousada da Vigia was a great stay in Floripa. The pousada is very well located, in the north edge of the island, the room is nice, the balcony view to the Lagoinha beach is amazing. The staff was amazing, always trying to make you comfortable and also giving local advices. Lagoinha is a calm beach and not so crowded, with... More

The Pousada da Vigia is a must to anyone traveling down to Floripa. What a place! Everything was perfect, to the last detail. The staff really make you feel at home, the food is superb and you really get the best bang for your back. Need a car? Worry not, the manager (who is awesome btw) will talk straight with... More

We stayed 05 nights in this beautifull place, the breakfast was full of fruits and delicious things to eat, the service was very good with kind people ready to serve us. The place is an old mansion, knowed as the governor house, with charming areas, nice rooms and an incredible view of the Lagoinha beach. We really enjoy it and... More

We had a fantastic 4-night stay at the pousada, it's a very special place. The staff could not have been more accommodating. Our room was great (you get to pick your room when you book and we chose #5 and highly recommend it - quite possibly the most comfortable bed ever, and on the end of the building so it's... More

The pousada da vigia is located on the northern tip of the island of Florianopolis. It is the old house of a state governor. It has since been completely revamped for the hotel. The settings is amongst in Floripa and the service is superb. My advice would be to try to stay in one of the "luxury suites" which are... More

It's a beautiful house, very nice common space, but the rooms are really bad. My wife and I are seasoned travelers, we don't mind simple, as long as it is charming. We selected this hotel looking at its website. Very deceiving !! The common areas and the view are really nice, but the rooms look like they belong to a... More

My husband and I spent two nights at the Pousada da Vigia during our trip to Florianopolis. The staff and service were superb. We stayed in room #8, a small but lovely room with a view of the beach. The room had a/c and a ceiling fan. When we got settled into the room, to our delight, a complimentary bottle... More
