This is an old ranch so the rooms are basic, though perfectly adequate. The food is really tasty local cooking though there is a bit of a school canteen style rush when the food is put out! The main reason to stay here is to enjoy the birdlife on the ranch and leisurely walks and drives where you might see night time mammals. There is a lovely bird feeder spot at the back of the hotel which allows really close up viewing of birds and coatees. The staff are lovely too.

The owner Luis is great -- very accommodating, anxious to make sure your stay if perfect. The rooms are simple but clean and comfortable. The air conditioner is noisy but works. The shower has hot water. And the food is GREAT. Lots of fresh, perfectly cooked veggies, as well as a a variety of meats.fish during out stay. And the desserts were far too good. This was the best food we had in the Pantanal -- not fancy but excellent. And the wildlife viewing -- early morning, late afternoon, and evening excursions were wonderful. We had our tour guide with us, but we understand Luis can arrange excursions as well. Definitely enjoyed our stay here and wouldn't hesitate to come back.

This was our 3rd lodge on the Pantanal tour. As we arrived after a 5 hours drive we met the owner who was working to fill in holes on his road. Even so we were driving around 25-30 km max. we were rebutted for driving to fast ruining his road (fun of holes)! As we got to the lodge we were the only guests. The boardwalks around the buildings were full of excrements (coatis, foxes etc) and generally the place looked in disarray and unkept. The room was on the edge when it comes to cleanliness and the shower was in dire need to be decalcified. We decided on the spot to leave the next day to another Pousada. Point of view wildlife - it was not as good as in other lodges even though we did a night safari and walked the premises for a good 2 hours. Yes we saw coatis, some birds and an agouti, caymans and capybaras but nothing you would not see in other lodges as well! The food was ok but since we were the only guests very basic except for the best flan caramel in ages! All in all NOT worth the money!

If you are looking to stay in the heart of nature, with all that entails, look no further. Rheas, coatis, pigs etc. right in the yard. And ... a 5 meter long anaconda in the garden! The accommodation, somewhat in the nature of a ranch, has plentiful animal and bird life right outside your door! It is set in a massive property where even more of the wonders of nature are to be found. The proprietor Luís is a very kind and knowledgeable man, passionate about his land, which is very well cared for. The food is reliable. The room is a comfortable respite from the heat and mosquitoes. The excursions produced ample opportunity to see everything imaginable. We were very pleased with our stay here.

This has got to be my favorite lodge on the trip. I read all the reviews before going there and saw many people sort of complaining that it's too simple. But for me, this was a perfect combination of simplicity and luxury. Rooms have air-conditioning and functioning flush toilets and meals were simple but tasty. I couldn't have asked for more. I loved the fact that I could just walk by myself on the dirt road looking for wildlife and the place is full of it, everywhere. You get wifi near the dining area only. There is a bird feeder where you will see a lot of cardinals and some aracaris. The crab-eating fox also comes around there to eat the fruits. There are also the hyacinth macaws around the lodge. We were very lucky to see a puma here [not near the feeder :D] If you are used to 'resort' kind of accommodation, then you may find the place 'simple'. But if you are like me, who prefer wild places without much of extra luxury, then this is the place.

The lodge holds an amazing private reserve. I would say this is a ranch not a lodge. They offer very simple accommodation and the food is not that good, but nature compensates. For sure i will be back next year.

This lodge is surrounded by wildlife from tapirs to giant anteaters. So many birds! Wonderful feeding station for toucans- until a fox walked in! The accommodation is clean and en- suite very basic as you are in the middle of no- where. There is WiFi , no phones. Food is plentiful and follows the accommodation. I nearly nearly killed myself slipping in the shower ( no mat, tiles very, very slippy with soap provided. The resultant hip bruise and grazes made my time in the bumpy transport around the lodge uncomfortable. Had I fractured my hip I would have been in a right mess miles from anywhere!) . The tap water is brown. There is filtered water for drinking, free. The staff are friendly. Wonderful place to see wildlife.

The good things- great wildlife area. The bad - rooms basic, with air conditioning unit from next door room so noisy I had to sleep with ear plugs. The shower adjustment was so high you had to be over 5ft 6 to alter it. Food ok but not great compared to other lodges( what sort of sickly gloop for dessert tonight?) Mad scramble of queue with other group when we were there. Main concern however was condition of 2 very emaciated horses,one with severely infected swollen hind leg. As and experienced horse owner I voiced my concerns to Louis the manager who said one was old and the one with infected leg had had it for 10 days and was being treated. While I accept animal welfare is different in different countries I felt this response was less than accurate and the horses in question were severely neglected.

Nice lodge but very overpriced. A very small room for 4 people - 1 bed on every side - hardly no place for your luggage. Average food - people standing in a row - not sure there is enough. Expensive beverage.

Lovely mixed use property that provided vast vistas of wetlands and dry forest alive with numerous species of birds, ranch horses, and indigenous mammals. We stayed at Pousa Alegre for three days two nights. We lost count of the number of bird species observed (were especially enchanted with a pair of nesting Jabiru whose home was on top of a monk parakeet nest). Mammals we saw included tapirs, agouti, grey brocket deer, capybara, peccary, black tailed marmoset and coati. The staff at Pousa Alegre were extremely nice- especial thanks to the owner who provided an herbal brew after I sprained my ankle. The food was plentiful and excellent. The fellow travelers- all birders and eco travelers made the dining experience even more enjoyable. The only less than excellent review goes to the room. Poorly lit, our room had an air conditioner and ceiling fan that were extremely noisy and a shower head that liked to fall off at random moments during a shower. Fortunately, being in the country the night cooled down sufficiently to just open windows at night, the bed was comfortable, and the shower got us clean in spite of the temperamental head. This property is highly recommended to anyone who wants to experience the best of the Pantanal.
