The hotel itself is central and provides all the essentials for a trip on Fernando. Ricardo couldn't have been a better host! He cooked prawns for us, threw a little party and even made us a Brazilian mix tape. Maria Lucia was awesome too, she knows everyone in town and kindly set up a tour of the island with a... More

The Pousada itself was ok. For sure you pay too much for what you get but I guess that’s Noronha. It’s clean and when we had a Problem with the shower it was fixed more or less quickly. What we didn’t like at all was the rudeness of the guy working there. On our first day we asked him for... More

having read such good reviews on Tripadvisor, we chose this pousada. the hosts Marilucia and Ricardo were friendly and helpful. however, we were disappointed about the room. The only good point was that it was spacious. Negative points: no view to the outside, no bedside table on one side of the bed, no hanging space for clothes, just shelf space,... More

After reading thousand reviews, my husband (British) and I (Brazilian) chose this pousada in Fernando de Noronha and we cannot thank you Marilucia for being such a great host! She picked us up at airport and made us feel extremely welcoming in her pousada with amazing breakfast (Tapioaca with white cheese was awesome) We are also extremely lucky as we... More

Lovely pousada owned/run by an extremely nice couple and their pleasant staff who went out of their way to help us and our friends (who were not even staying here). It was an ideal spot for us as we stayed for a week. Right in town and walking distance to Praia do Meio and Praia do Cachorro. Would definitely recommend... More

I stayed at Leao Marinho for 2 weeks a few years ago and even though this review is way overdue, I really wanted to spread the word so everyone can have as amazing of an experience as I did. Marilucia is just incredible, She is extremely knowledgeable about the island, and speaks perfect english incase you don't speak portuguese. The... More

how many things has done this woman, who owns the hotel, for us: she managed all our excursions contacting the best travel agencies of the island, she did our washing, she upgraded our room giving us a beautiful chalet suite, in spite of a standard room, she, in few minutes, also found out the snorkelling equipment for both of us....

My wife left her purse in the room and we went for a tour to Atalaia, leaving the room keys with the hotel staff. When we came back, her purse had disappeared. After going to the police station, the purse was found inside a car in front of the hotel, but without the money (400 reais = 180 euros)

We visited Fernando and stayed at Pousada Leao Marinho for almost a week and it was a wonderful stay indeed. We stayed in one of the Chalets, which was a very good choice. The chalet was simple but very nice, clean, quiet and with lots of space. The hostess Marilúcia is very nice, very helpful and speaks excellent English, which... More
