Pros: 1. Amazing setting. Views, mist, fishing village, mountains, boats, etc. Really ideal. 2. Incredible staff. Super attentive, kind and genuine. Decent English. 3. Unique property. Basically an old house, but kept up nicely. Very charming and tastefully decorated. 4. Cool activities. Take a small boat to an island beach for the day. Paddle board up a river, hike, paraty...

What a place this small pousada is.. Quietly tucked away on the hillside overlooking the sea, super friendly service, one of the most beautiful infinity pools you are likely ever to see, fresh fish on the grill, outside dinner with view over the sea, hammocks for a quiet siesta and an array of outdoors activities (we took a day on...

We spent the weekend at this small 17-room pousada, and loved every minute. Location is fantastic, overlooking Picinguaba bay and Praia da Fazenda. Room as a bit small, but comfortable and very clean. A/C works wonders. On Saturday we hiked to Praia da Fazenda, a 3km deserted beautiful beach, 20 min away from the hotel. Bliss. On Sunday we joined... More

I'm not sure from reading some of the below reviews what people expect from this hotel. It is the most wonderful boutique hotel, with lovely freshly made food, very friendly staff, beautifully decorated rooms and a view to die for. People complain about mosquito's, or staff not speaking English, or having to not put paper down the toilet because of... More

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

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
