“Very Special”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

Originally booked here for 2 nights on 13th May 2013 and ended up staying for 4! The staff were very helpful, spoke great english and were able to give us all the information we were looking for. We had breakfast included every morning which was delicious, fresh fruit, cakes, ham and cheese toast/rolls, cereal and tea/coffee. We didn't need to eat again until the afternoon, but they alos do a buffet style lunch, which is pretty popular as many people show up for it that aren't staying there. It is about a 30 min bus ride to Lagoa town and about 20mins to Ingleses, the busses go from directly out the front of the hotel so its very easy. We hired a scooter from Lagoa for $50(brazilian) a day and it was easy enough to find our way around. As it was the quiet season for Florianopolis there were many shops/restaurants not open but we managed, and actually preferred it quieter than really busy.
Thanks again!!

I use to visit Floripa quite often both for business and as a tourist, and Oceanomare is definitely my favorite resort. Rooms are clean and tidy. You are greeted and supported by friendly staff
The buffet lunch is also very enjoyable. Free wifi, a very nice pool as well as other facilities. I would recommend to anyone visiting Floripa.

This is not a "pousada" in the brazilian sense, don't be confused. It is a 4 acres property with lofts, apartments, restaurant, a Spa, a wonderful swimming pool and area of relax in the middle of a small town, but surrounded by green vegetation, peace and quiet atmosphere.

In searching something like that in Floripa I come empty handed. It seems that your choices are either a sh..ty room in a small posada for 30 dollars or if you ask for class and clean you have to go to a 100 rooms hotel.

I can recommend without hesitation this place, It is perfect for relax, the attention is excellent, the italian owner knows what you like, the people in the reception are very professional ( we have a glitch which was attended immediately and apologies offered and gladly accepted). Get a car though. A 5 minutes ride and you are in the Mozambique 7 km beach, we used to jog there every morning and come back for gorgeous breakfast. Then you can go to the Campeche beach for serious surfing (20 minutes ride).

At night (we were there off season) you are close to some of the zamba places (in nearby Joaquino after midnight or in Barra de Consezao [15 minutes south] after 11 PM in La Varanda
right in the lake front. We re-discovered (thank Laura!) a unique place in the Prainha of Barra de Lagoa with food, live music and zamba until 4 am. (ask the locals for the Prainha, you have to cross a pedestrian bridge to access that beach)

We got one of the two new apartments in the top (Apt 26, not yet in the online booking menu) for some extra money. It was worth!

So, if you are like us, active and sporty but at the same time inclined to pamper your day a bit, who like equally to dance and a bit of dolce far niente, this is your place in Floripa no doubt

Room Tip: Two new appartment are the best, huge baths with jets are not in the online booking menu but you c...

Very special hotel in Florianopolis. Quiet, elegant, rustic and ideal for relax. The best rustic hotel in the island.

The owner is a gentle italian man. The room is large and comfortable with plan TV, air conditioning, two ambients, shower with central heating.


Phone signal can fail.

Localization of nearest beach is about 3 miles.

We stayed 1 week in this pousada and really loved the setting: our chalet was spacious with a nice terrace (perfect for a family with 2 kids) in a beautiful green environment, very nice pool area, good restaurant with delicious healthy food. The service was top and always with a smile, especially the staff at the frontdesk were very professional and gave us useful tips about how to get around, which beaches to choose from etc, much appreciated. The owner explained us that they are planning to build a great playground for the kids, which will for sure add important value for families travelling with children. The only remark was the breakfast, here they could bring in more variety...Also important to note: a car is for sure useful when you are staying in this location (we used public transport to get around but this was not always hassle free, especially during the high season when traffic is really bad on the island)

This pousada is very nice and located in a quiet location. Very close to the sea and surrounded by the forest
In general the pousada is clean, the only remark is that breakfast is always the same. Basically they had bread and fruit and always the same cakes. The breakfast room could be more clean, some days I have found bees in the marmelade jar
