“A pleasant hideaway.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

The pousada only has a handful of chalets tucked away at the bottom of a hill covered in forest. Some are individual chalets and some in sets of two or three. We stayed in an individual chalet. It had a small kitchen with fridge and cooker and some basic utensils, enough for us. The chalet was generally clean and comfortable with a fan and somewhat noisy but effective air conditioning. Small bathroom with shower and toilet.
The grounds of the pousada are pretty with plants and trees, there is a path that leads up the hill through the trees for a couple of hundred metres. Near the top there is a shower and hammocks if you feel like soaking up the atmosphere.
There is a small natural swimming pool built into the boulders, nice not to have the smell of chlorine but a bit of debris in the pool, needs more regular flushing out perhaps, but still pleasant.
Excellent and enormous breakfast served by the friendly Ercilia who made us fried banana fritas, scrambled eggs to add to the groaning choice on the table.
All in all, a simple clean pousada in a lovely setting with good friendly service. If you are looking for luxury or a deluxe experience then look elsewhere but simple honest what you see is what you get then I recommend this place.
I can not say the same of the town of Trindade which has exploded in this lovely place over the last 30 years. Big piles of smelly rubbish covered with tarpaulins behind one of the beaches, lots of litter, drains clearing struggling to deal with the number of visitors, beach front cafes blaring out music and loads of "craft shops". It is near Paraty and there is a bus service so access is easy but if you are looking for quiet, natural beaches there are many others not so far away.
