Perfect room very cozy and spacious, clean with terrace and hammock, bed is comfortable and bathroom clean, if anything wifi didn't always work in the room while it's ok in the reception, breakfast could be better for the price charged yet overall nice stay

Certainly one of the best places in Morro de São Paulo: I just loved it. Fantastic view from all rooms. Excellent breakfasts. A perfect moment, a clean room and the owners, who are Argentinians, are more than very nice people: they really take care of the guests, making sure they are spending a happy moment. There is absolutely no noise... More

Aquarela was recommended to us by a friend, and I'm so glad we took his advice and stayed there. Ideal location - close to the main streets and the beaches but far enough away to feel like you're in another world. Very peaceful. Jose the owner is very engaging. I even managed a conversation with him despite me not speaking... More

Spent one night in this Pousada and generally speaking the experience could have not been better. Jose is a fantastic host, the rooms can be booked with a great value and the place feels like home. Jose could have not done more to make our stay easy and pleasant. Loved spending some time chatting with him during breakfast, he is... More

The pousada is located a just bit away from the main streets and beaches which means you can get some sleep... But it's not too far away from the bars & co (about a 7 minutes walk) We met Jose (the owner) and had a good feeling with him. He was at the breakfast every morning, and every morning he... More

It's not that I hated my stay in this pousada. The Italian girl and her husband were very nice, very helpful, but there are many things to change there. First of all my room was up in a hill, we had to go up many many stairs to get to our room...at room few bad surprises, such as sheets with... More

My wife and I stayed here for four nights in July. We started in a triple room (as that was all that was available at the time of booking) that was actually more for like 5 people. It proved too large for us, and Georgia was happy to accommodate our request to downsize. We moved to a smaller room, which... More

If you are looking for a tranquil place away from the noisy party areas of Morro, then Aquarela is ideal. If you want to be close to the beaches, then it's not the right choice, although bear in mind that Morro is small and the main beaches are only 5-10 minute walk away down the 'main street'. The rooms are... More

Pousada Aquarela is a charming place sorrounded by trees and vegetation in a perfect location in the island: 5 minutes walking from the beautiful and quite beaches on the west side of the island, close to the port and shopping and restaurants area... The hospitality of the entire staff there makes you feel at home even if you are miles... More

We had intended to stay on Morro for 5 nights but extended our stay to 7. This was mostly down to the wonderful time we had at Pousada Aquarela. We had a lovely room with a great view and spent some quality time in the hammock provided. The breakfast is great, fresh fruit, bread, toasted sandwich and yoghurt with granola... More
