“Lovely Pousada with the most helpful owners you could possibly come across”
Reviewed March 22, 2011

Made this booking on the ratings on trip advisor and i'm glad to say we were not disappointed. We originally booked for three nights through hostelbookers and ended up staying six!
Rooms themselves are simple but comfortable and equipped with everything you may need. The Pousada has a great location around 5 min walk to the beach and if you have enough of the sand there is a lovely little pool to relax by.
The breakfast is fantastic with delicious freshly baked cakes and fresh fruit in abundance.
All the above is held together by the super friendly owners, Aline and her family. They honestly can not do enough to help you, from ringing to find out bus time tables to providing beach umbrellas. These guys are genuinely interested in their guests and go over and above to help.
Thanks Aline & Family!

Tip - try and get to Florianopolis main bus station fairly early to get the bus up to the Pousada as Taxis are quite pricey.

We stayed here for one night, and I loved it. It is set up the hill away from the road, so you don't hear any traffic. We enjoyed sitting in the courtyard area and enjoying the beautiful trees, shrubs, and conversation. Breakfast was delicious. This is a great Pousada located on the north side of the island! We walked to the beach (it was about 10 minutes to walk) and had an amazing time swimming in the ocean. It was wonderful.

It was our second time in Pousada do Atobaba, and it was like coming home! The place is still very well kept and some renovation has been done (Kitchen in the chalet has been enlarged, new matresses and so on) and the guest familiy is nicer than ever. Alica and her sister speak perfect english and other languages too. She helped us again with hitel reservations in Brazil, which we could not do ourselves.

This time we came in march, which means late summer in southern Brazil. The temperature was very convienient, not to hot so we did not need air condition, but still warm enough to swim. We love to come back again!

We have been at Pousada Do Atoba for 11 days and its been great. when i first arrived on the island i staid in a nice pousada in Rio Vermelho, however there was nothing around the Pousada to do. I searched Trip Advisor and found Pousada Do Atoba and once again, Trip Advisor's contributors did not let me down. big thanks to all those who take there time to give there comments.
It is difficult to say anything more then what others have said, but suffice to say the rooms are clean and comfortable, the location is excellent for the beach with a few little resturants and bars within walking distance and only a10 min bus ride into Engleses. actually, we went everywhere by bus (Floripa, Jurere, Lagoa, Vio Vermelho, Praia Mole). but what was outstanding for me was the the staff and breakfast :-). the breakfast had everything we could have wanted and plenty of it. the staff were always friendly and helpful, even if they could not understand my aussie accent, but the owners were awesome. Special HUGE thanks to Aline who helped us out so many times at different hours of the day and night. wihtout her english skills we would have struggled in so many ways.
Definitely a must stay.

There might be places closer to the beach, but the atmosphere and the friendliness of this family busineess beats it all! The staff is so helpful, giving suggestions for restaurants and beaches and helping to organize rental cars, bookings and more.

The porperty is well kept, the breakfast with homemade pastries is delicious and the rooms are spotless clean.

My recommendation for Florianopolis!

Very nice and clean hotel. Aline spoke perfect english and couldn't do enough for us. She was more than helpful and even got her Dad to drop us to the bus stop. Her mam makes a gorgeous breakfast too. Nearby beaches are perfect and we would thoroughly recommend this hotel.

My boyfriend and I stayed here after reading the reviews on tripadvisor. We've been travelling round south america for 3 months and we've learnt to trust reviews from people we think sound like us. This was a perfect example.

The pousda is small, friendly and spotless. It's located a short walk to the beach and it's up in the north of the island so It's quiet and relaxing. When we wanted to explore the island we hired a car (which Alina also organised for us). We totally mis timed the weather and so it rained on us quite a bit but instead of being stuck in impersonal hotel we were lucky enough to have found this place. They have cable TV ( the films in english saved us!) and Alina, who runs the place, couldnt have been more helpful or kind. One night she even ordered us takeaway and specially opened up the kitchen for us to make coffee.

I use tripadvisor a lot when travelling and I try to write reviews when i think people weve met along the way have been really amazing (or really terrible....) and so I wanted to highlight how great Alina and this little place is. Book it, you won't regret it.
