First the positive points: the personnel are friendly and really do their most to help. There is a good heated pool and the large garden is well kept! The negative points refers to the administration. You give your credit card information when making the reservation, but upon check-in they charge the full amount. When you check out the extras must be paid only in cash or with a debit card, unless yout bill exceeds US$100,00 The room “superior” is very small. Just to give a example there is only one reading lamp ! The bathroom is very,very small! And last but not least,hanging on the door there is a price list of towels that are stained! There are plenty hotels nearby.I cannot recommend this one!

Dear guest, We consider very constructive all the comments we receive here, once it allow us to correct our faults and improve every day. Regarding the negative points, namely, the fact that we established a minimum value for payment in credit cards, we must explain that the credit card company charge us a very high fee for each payment made at their system. Once we didn’t want to increase our daily rate, respecting those who would rather paying in cash, we didn’t have another choice but determining a minimum value, including for payments in instalments without interests. Regarding the notice about the towels, we inform that we haven’t charged anyone for that until today, but for us is very important to warn the guests about that fee, because we are located in a forest and we need to avoid to have the towels damaged by the land. We appreciate your contribution and hope you understand! J

We loved our stay here in Serra do Cipo, the B&B is nicely laid out with a big reception area with fireplace opening onto a large courtyard with the rooms spread around. The rooms are spacious and well furnished, ours had a small balcony with hammock. The breakfast was plentiful and they serve excellent local coffee. The staff are very clued up on walks in the area, ensuring you get the most from your stay.

Me and my boyfriend booked the Master Suite for a 3 night stay. The room is comfortable, had a small balcony with a hammock which was very nice! Breakfast is good, we both liked it very much. The pool area is ok, the pool was very cold, but there was another one warm, but we did not try it. TV had only channels in portuguese, but we had our ipad and watched netflix; the wifi had a low signal but it worked! Only one morning breakfast was served 20 min late; besides that, I think everything went well with this pousada, so I recommend it!

About the wifi, we have recently changed the supplier and they are still adjusting everything to improve the speed of connection. Concerning the breakfast delay, we will talk to our team to try to find out what happend and we will, certainly, take providence to avoid that to happen again. Finally, we hope to see you soon. Invite your friends and family, it will be a pleasure to host you another time! Best regards, Ana Maria (owner Varandas da Serra)
