We spent 5 nights here in January. The Pousada is perfectly situated on Third Beach about a minute off of the Island's main boardwalk - set farther back from the boardwalk makes it much quieter. The hotel is very clean, the breakfasts boast a large variety and the staff are very helpful and respond to questions immediately. There is a lovely lounge on the top floor with hammocks to relax in and I believe all rooms with a patio or balcony, also offer a hammock. The Wi-Fi can be a bit spotty but the lounge upstairs has great reception. We experienced a medical issue during our stay and thanks to the quick thinking of Koqueline (sp?) at the front desk, who called the owner, Alex, everything was taken care of. Alex immediately jumped in and arranged all of the help and transport we needed to the medical centre - he totally went above and beyond! Kail at the front desk speaks English and was also very helpful. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: We were in room 5 on the main floor at the back - it had a patio but was a tad dark.

we spent 2 nights at the pousada before New Year. the pousada is in one of the many side streets off the main beach "road" close to all main attractions. when booking we were scared that it may be far from everything but it very close to all the beaches and restaurants. the room was upstairs with a balcony and hammock which is nice to laze in. the room itself was very clean with ac and curtains that block the light. the bathroom is small but clean and serves all needs. the breakfast was the usual Brazilian type with cake, cold meats and cheeses and breads.

Rooms are good with enough space and very clean. The hotel is can be reached through a small alley from the 3rd beach (allthough this is not really a beach...). The windows cannot be closed properly so if you are on the ground floor put your valuables in the safe.

Thanks for your coments. Only want to say that i use to go swiming here, at the 3rd beach, just few hundreds meters from the pousada. May not be the best beach, but for shure it´s one. If you coudn´t close the window, we have staff to repair anything that doesn´t work. Any way Morro it´s a very safe place and never happend that thieves come into the garden. Hope we can see you in the future.

Pousada Borboleta is a safe, well located, well appointed and comfortable pousada. We were met by Alex, who was warm, genuine and of every assistance during our stay. I am a light sleeper, but slept very well in the quiet and air conditioned room. The bed was very comfortable, the shower was to north american standard in water flow and tempurature range. sheets and towels were clean and of good quality. The breakfast in the morning (8:00 - 10:00) was well supplied with fruits, juices, cakes, coffee (with hot milk) tea, cereals, yogurt and clean protein... The posada is located less than a 30 second walk off the more quiet third beach, also about a ten minute walk to the centre of the village. Alex was very helpful in things such as printing transfer vouchers and very giving of information, during our stay.
