“Charming pousada!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

I loved this pousada with its simple, rustic furniture. Everything was spotless and well taken care of. The bathrooms seemed to have been recently re-done and the staff were kind and welcoming, eager to help with day trips and recommendations throughout the island. Breakfast consisted of traditional brazilian cakes, fruit, coldcuts, cheeses, yogurt, and cereral, they also made eggs to order if you wanted something a little heartier.

We had a 6 yr old with us, who loved the pool (small, but nice) and the staff were quick to turn on the pool shower, for the kids to enjoy during breakfast hours, before heading out to the day trips.

We had a minor incident with the air breaking during the night, the staff that was on duty at the time was unable to help us, however the next morning when we spoke to the day staff they gave us a later check out (whenever we wanted to leave) and were very apologetic.

Other than that, great pousada, and lovely people, would definitely go back.

Admittedly we did go out of season and alot of places were closed. We thought the Pousada looked lovely on the web and the reviews we found weren't negative.

I called them two days before and reserved a room. A price was agreed (which escapes me now) which was at a discount of around 40% because of the time of year. We got there and checked in which was a little difficult because of my lack of portuguese. We were the only ones staying there. The room was basic and we found out that we were covered in ants by the morning!

The breakfast was basic too. Toasted sandwiches, cakes (which were stale and not very pleasant), cereals and tea and coffee. The sauna was also being used as a storage room.

As we were checking out (a day early) we were given our bill at full price. Considering we were the only customers you would think that this would have been discussed at some point. It was disbuted and because of the language barrier we paid about 70% of full price. A little more than previously agreed.

I would like to think that the Pousada will be more welcoming and hospitable in peak season.
