“Great place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

The place is just great! With a lot of nature and aventure. It´s a place where you can find peace.
It´s very near the bech, and the breakfest is incredible, very helthy, with different fresh fruits every day. It´s very clean too. The apartments are special, the owners take care of everydetail. I recommend!

The location is beautiful, with views of the beach in a quiet setting. It's a quality pousada with lots of attention to detail, and just a short walk to the beach.
What made our stay so fantastic was the warmth and helpfulness of our hosts Ricardo and Elis- who went out of their way to help with finding (and organising!) yoga and surf classes for us. They were very thoughtful and kind hosts, that made our stay very special. Breakfast was also superb and varied, with new additions to the spread each day.

Wellcome our guests is a pleasure for us! Help them learn about the island and surroundings makes us very happy. Since we too travelled abroad we know how important is to get some help and support while in a forner country. We love to meet and help our guests, they have all been very nice and friendly and became our friends. Thank you so much for the review.

We just returned from a week's stay at Pousada Solar do Santinho, and had such an amazing trip that we are already plotting when we can return next. The incredible (kind, helpful, and warm) hosts, Elis and Ricardo, have thought of every last detail to make your stay relaxing, peaceful, and carefree. Ricardo and Elis were extremely helpful and responsive with all of our pre-trip questions (airport transfer, helping us find an automatic rental car, places to rent surfboards) and continued to ensure that we were content throughout our stay while also providing plenty of space and privacy.
*Rooms: The rooms are spacious, split-level one-bedroom apartments (partial kitchen with microwave and fridge) with balconies, great showers, and the sound of the nearby ocean through the window. Everything is tastefully decorated and extremely clean. The whole area is very quiet, and we slept like babies every night.
*Breakfast: Breakfast was a huge highlight of the stay and is served every morning in a special dining room building. Breakfast included great coffee, fresh tropical juices, fresh fruit, cakes, bread, and cheese. Yum.
*Pousada Grounds: Ricardo and Elis have designed the pousada to be a little oasis of its own. It overlooks Santinho Beach, which is a short 3-4 minute walk from the bottom of the property. Within the pousada, you will find a gazebo with hammocks, pool and 2 sundecks, and a special recreation room with a pool table and TV. The front desk has a mini-bar with drinks and snacks for purchase. The pousada has key access for guests only and feels extremely secure (for those who may have had different experiences or concerns in the larger cities of Brazil)
*Favorite Nearby Restaurants: Our two favorite eateries were the nearby Santinho Express run by husband and wife team, Paolinho and Zilda. Just a 5 minute walk from the Pousada, this seasonal roadside cafe serves light meals/sandwiches and fresh cocktails. Our other favorite restaurant is the new Via Santinho, about a 10-15 minute walk towards Ingleses. This is run by Chef Saulo Bayer who cooked the most delicious seafood we had on the whole trip. Lastly, there's a cute yellow kiosk at the far north end of Praia Santinho where we got our daily fix of coconut water and acai.
*Activities: We found 2 great places to rent surfboards, one called Escola de Surf on Praia Santinho in front of the big resort with a great selection of boards. There is another great surfshop that rents boards in the town of Ingleses near the rotary. We also did the hike to Praia Mozambique. The bus system is fast, frequent, safe, and cheap R$2.90pp and goes everywhere from the nearby town of Ingleses to longer treks that can take you to other famous beaches like Praia Mole and Joaquina.
*Other tips: Ricardo pointed us to the HSBC ATM on the nearby resort grounds that accepted our international debit cards (not all ATM machines do), which was the easiest way for us to get cash. Many of the restaurants and shops accept credit cards.
In summary, our stay was incredible, in large part because of Elis and Ricardo's careful attention to detail and overall hospitality. We hope that we can return some day!

We had a lovely stay at this Pousada. Nice room, super friendly hosts (Richardo and Elis) and great facilities. The breakfast was superb, even different each day (new fresh juices and new cakes).

Thanks for ensuring us a memorable Floripa visit, we only wish we stayed longer.

Me and my partner stayed here for four nights and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The location is great - close to the beach, great trek up a mountain and across to an isolated beach (Mozanbique), sand surfing (thanks for lending us the board Ricardo!!) and yet the Pousada itself is very quiet, relaxing and great for just chilling in your hammock! Ricardo and Elis were great hosts - helping us out above and beyond (thanks for Antonio's Elis and of course my beautiful sarong!!). Breakfast was fresh and tasty - try the home cooked cakes! We would definitely recommend this Pousada to anyone visiting Florianopolis. Thanks again for everything Ricardo and Elis, if you are ever in York.......

Amazing!! My girlfriend and I stayed here for 5 days in January and we could not have asked for a better location or guests. The rooms were clean, the breakfast was amazing and the slackline kept me entertained!! Ricardo and Elise created an atmosphere that was welcoming and private all at the same time and the location could not be better. We hope to be back someday soon!!

This is my second visit to Solar do Santinho and I can say it is even better than the first time, two years ago. Rooms are nice, clean, comfortable, breakfast is just great, the beach is only a few steps far from the rooms (3 min walk), the place is always quiet, everything in place, organized and green, but the best part is the staff: the owners treats us like a close friend, always so thoughtful and polite.
