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

An amazing pousada, sorrounded by trees, where you can really relax while you listen to the birds that are always around. I don't have any negative point about this place, Jose, the owner, was a nice host, giving us some tips about where to eat, beaches to visit and how to get in Boipeba island. I want to come back...

We had a wonderful time at pousada aquarela! Jose is - by far - the best host I have met in Brazil. The place is beautiful, relaxing, friendly and inviting. The breakfast was excellent and taken in a most beautiful dining room. Pousada aquarela is not right on the beach. However, Morro being what it is, nothing is far, the... More

We had such an amazing time staying in Aquarela.. The Pousada was beautiful- we had such a cool apartment up in the trees.. So comfortable that we could have stayed there forever.. We also had a wicked wooden terrace which was great fro pre drinks and playing cards.. You feel like Robinson Crusoe living up there and we miss it... More

This place was perfect and excellent value. It's a 3 minute walk from the main square but still felt as though it was out of the touristy area. The room was a very good size and had a hammock outside overlooking the surrounding area which is all quite green. Breakfast was excellent. There were DVDs at reception. The owner is... More
