My husband and I spent 8 days of our honeymoon here and I can't recommend it enough. It was understated luxury and the service was some of the best in the world - non intrusive but always on hand. Not much English was spoken but take a phrase book - you're in their country! From idyllic boat trips to lounging... More

We had spent one month in Brazil and Argentina on vacation and were looking for somewhere to relax and chill out before going home. We could not have chosen a better place for this than Pousada Picinguaba. We arrived on my wife's birthday and when shown to our room found the bed strewn with hibiscus flowers. After supper outside on... More

My husband and I spent 4 days at Pousada Picinguaba and it was absolutely amazing. It felt like we were in a dream when we were there! The views were absolutely breathtaking, the food was great (everything was fresh and local), and the staff was wonderful. There was no one staying in their honeymoon suite during our time there, so... More

I stayed in the pousada for a weekend and I loved it since the beggining, when I arrived in the vila Picinguaba.The landscape is beautiful and the location is perfect, with a great view over the 'serra do mar'. I talked a lot with the employees (that are locals) and I really liked the concept of the pousada, that is... More

We spent three days at Pousada Picinguaba as the second part of our honeymoon after spending five days at Fazenda Catuçaba. We had a great driver who took us from the Fazenda right to the Pousada. The Pousada is located at the end of the road out of Ubatuba. This quaint little fishing village wasn’t bustling with tourists and traffic... More

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
