This was a very unmemorable stay. The room was okay yet only okay. I thought that it was very expensive and provided no services. The wifi never worked and we payed more for the top room. I think that if we booked the cheapest one they would have put us in the same room anyway.

Cute enough from the outside, but once in our room, this pousada was a disappointment. There was no cable, no internet our entire stay. Yes, we don't "get away" to be connected, but when there's nothing to do after 8 pm other than sleep, it's nice to have some options. The bathrooms were atrocious by any standard. There was no...

After the first night, my wife and I abandoned the "Pousada" (since we have paid for 3 nights). We had only cold water, dusty room, no services at all after 8 pm (even the wi-fi was turned off...). We could hear our neighbor talk, so we had to put the air conditioning loud... We got very dirty getting to our... More

We were a group of two couples visiting Fernando do Noronha for the first time. The Pousada do Frances is located near the Vila Floresta Velha on the outskirts (and uphill) from the Vila dos Remedios, on a rutted dirt road with random large stones that make the taxis and buggies bottom out. (I would note that this is true... More

This cute little pousada was very cosy, he two owners extremely helpful and friendly, we spent one very relaxing week in that ideal location (close to the beach but also very central to reach any other spot on the island). To cut it down to the most important things for us when travelling: a good bed and bathroom, diversified quality... More
