This pousada is really cute. It has small but nicely decorated rooms, efficient bathrooms with a hot shower (the more water you want the colder it gets, so choose a nice small stream for a steaming hot shower.) Free shampoo, bodylotion, vanity set etc. Room gets cleaned everyday, including new sheets and towels. Breakfast is good, with delicious fruits and... More

It was a really pleasant peaceful stay away from the chaos of Rio. We arrived on the island and in the rush to catch our transport we forgot to print the map with the location of the Posada. So it was a bit of a problem to find as it's not signed anywhere at the ferry terminal like some of... More

It is a very cozy, nice and romantic pousada. One of the bests in Ilha. Very close to town, but quiet. The girls of the reception treated us great, and we also enjoyed the spa. The massage was amazing!

The staff were very welcoming and friendly, the afternoon tea was a lovely touch and the room and breakfast area were delightful. Despite it raining the duration of my stay, I still found the island very beautiful and tranquil and there was a large dvd library to keep guests entertained whist the weather was bad. This place is perfect for... More

We think it's overrated and expensive. The location is good, but we had some issues with the noise (and not only) which were ignored. There was also an issue with the lack of electricity and thus with the loud generator. We asked for a discount but again did not get any answer, not even a polite negation. But the breakfast...

Good day! The eletricity is really an issue in the Island, and we know the generator is noisy, but it is better than not having any lights at all. Glad you liked our homemade breakfast though. Thanks for staying with us! More

We stayed at this Pousada for 3 days. The staff was very welcoming and accomodating. They always had a friendly smile and nothing was too much trouble. The surroundings are just beautiful and very well kept. Breakfast was good. Not memorable but satisfying and varied enough. They offer a complementary 5 o'clock tea (or coffee/juice) with pastries and little snacks,... More

This is a very nice hotel. Wi-Fi was only available at the reception ( in 2012 anyways). Room was very nice, always tidy, comfy. They've got games and DVD s available at reception for rainy days (we had one).
