A beautiful location, in a small fishing village way off the beaten track, with excellent views and friendly, welcoming and attentive staff. It is very quiet, save for the bird song in the pretty garden around an attractive pool. This pousada is recommended by Forbes and Vogue presumably by people who have only seen the photographs? Because the accommodation is... More

We recently stayed at this Pousada for six nights and after a long 4 hour drive from Rio were immediately charmed by the location and the lodging facility.We were warmly greeted and offered an outstanding fresh maracuja juice whilst completing the registration.We were quickly done and fully enjoying the honeymoon suite we had selected on this special occasion.The room was...

My wife and I travelled from Rio (pop. 10 million) to Picinguaba (pop. 400) in January, and immediately knew we had chosen a fantastic place to stay. We spent our days kayaking and hiking through beautiful tropical rainforest looking for toucans, and swimming with turtles in clean, warm water. Cocktails by the pool In the evening served by wonderful, helpful... More

My wife and I recently returned from a 4 night stay dismayed by Picinguaba. On the plus side the location is beautiful, the views spectacular and the gardens a delight..but that is where it ends. The bedrooms are all basic with cheap furniture and not a draw in sight...3 star at best; the common areas are of the similar standard... More

Pictures on website an accurate illustration of how beautiful this spot is....rooms small but comfortable, main areas lovely as well. Food good, nice to eat out by the pool in the evening , breakfast decent. Despite that it felt a little corporate (staff pointing out that they leave tips to the guests discretion felt a little like begging) and also... More

If you want to get away from the tourists and immerse yourself in a stylish surrounding with the most delicious local home cooked cuisine, then this is the place. We stayed with our children at the end of a trip around Brazil organised by Imagine Latin America, we had the private villa which affords a little more space and privacy... More

We were aiming for a very lazy week doing not very much. Temperature in late 30s(C) and 90%++ humidity pretty much settled that. With no air con rooms can get very uncomfortable even at night. The swimming pool with views over the bay (which is in all the publicity) is wonderful but unless you have the constitution of a monitor... More

I should start by saying this has been a difficult review to write as I am torn in my opinion. It is an intimate hotel of 9 rooms and two detached casas. Stunning location, happy and helpful staff, clean, good beds, well furnished good wi-fi, food variable, small pool and sunbeds with a view to savour. But there was something... More

I guess about 10 years ago, this hotel could have great reviews, but nowadays, it's a completely fail! For the price they charge, they should offer a 5 star service, even if this is a "eco-hotel"as they say. No mini bar/fridge in the rooms. No appetizers during the day. The hours you can order food is really bad as it... More

We spent 4 days as a family of 8 + 2 children in the new years holidays and had amazing time, We where really impressed with the quality of the food (many ingredients brought form the organic farm and the fish always very fresh since Picinguaba is a fisherman's village). During the day we enjoyed the nearby beaches, either in... More
