We stayed here for one night having decided we didn't want to return to Salvador. As it was the week after new year, we were worried there would be nothing available. This place was available so we went and checked it out and it looked fine. Interestingly paying in person by cash was more expensive than via booking sites. The... More

Hotel is located in the center of the island close to everything, 8 minutes walking to the beach. The staff was very nice and the hotel manager was always happy to help and answer our questions. The hotel has free Wifi and a good breakfast too. Rooms are clean and are being cleaned daily (not a regular thing in Brazil)

We showed up at Tia Gloria after a bad experience at another pousada in Morro de Sao Paulo and really enjoyed our stay there. Their rooms are very clean and airy, the sheets are nice and crisp and the rooms have AC, a TV and wi-fi. Our room had a balcony that open to the main square and had a... More

We came to the island with no reservation and came upon this posado because of the ideal location in the square. It is has very basic accomodations with a breakfast included. We really liked the location the most, just steps right into the small square. The only issue we had was with a barking dog at night, but we requested... More

I recently stayed at the Pousada Tia Gloria for 5 days and after my experience there, I feel compelled to warn other travelers about this hotel. First of all, the room had a terrible sulfurous odor the whole time we were there. We had to have the window open constantly to get fresh air. When we spoke to the management... More

The location is quite good - in the village not far from the ferry dock so easy to get there with the bags when you arrive. A few minutes walk to the beaches. The room was basic but the breakfast was very nice, and the receptionist was helpful.

My husband and I chose this Pousada because it was the only vacancy left on the island during Carnaval. It was old, run down, and smelly. There were 3 beds in our room. One double and two singles. There was a Febreze like sprayer in the room that sprayed a scent every 30 minutes. By minute 25, you knew why... More
