“Your home far away from home”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

It's THE place if you're looking for a cozy remote place. It's on top a hill with a stunning view. Small place with lovely decorated bungalows - we just felt at home. Big breakfast is served outside beside the pool area. It's worth climbing the steps up there - about 10 min. outside of the village - perfect for people looking for a rest. Beautiful garden and clean swimming pool. Helmut and Marga have been in Morro for about 30 years and know about the good spots to discover. They where even helpful to make the reservation for the catamaran from Salvador to Morro. We've been there twice and will be back for more.

Very nice view and swimming pool, which is great for people spending the day at the pousada. However, it has a few things that are not great: 1) curtains are not stopping the sun so the light comes in at 5am, 2) you have to walk up 150 stairs to get there, which even doing it twice a day is quite a lot and not clearly spelt out in the guide, 3) breakfast was big but not buffet so we didnt eat part of the stuff because we didnt like the choice as we would have chosen differntly, 4) mosquitos are VERY present and a constant annoyance, even with the mosquito net.

Beautiful oasis in Morro de Sao Paulo. It's a bit of a trek to get there and not very handy for the main beaches, but its seclusion is what makes it so lovely. We had a bungalow, which was the cheapest, and it was very clean and comfortable, with our own hammock. There's also a lovely garden and swimming pool if you want to stay away from the crowds for a few hours. We didn't mind the walk to the main beaches and there are some quieter beaches closer by. Would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: The bungalows are cheapest and very comfortable.

We stayed 7 days in Morro and had a wonderful time in the Pousada Kolibri. Helmut and Marga a very pleasant hosts. The appartments and huts are very nice and comfortable. A wonderful view over the ocean, very good breakfast. Certainly a very good choice, if you want to stay in Morro. The pousada is on top of a hill, a ten minutes walk to the village. It's quiet and peacefull, a perfect place to relax.

We stayed for four nights at pousada colibri with our two kids. We liked the smaller appartment above the chalet. Breakfast was to much to eat including warm patatoes. Helmut very helpfull. Instead of beach 1,2,3 etc we walked down from colibri to the nearest beach in 5 minutes and than your have a walk of 25 minutes over a robinson crusoe beach to a very nice sandy beach. You can only walk this route a low tight. We toke boat back to town a saw dolphins.

Room Tip: Ask for the chalet if you like a lot of space and your own big private balcony. The apparment is sma...

Pousada Colibri is definately a place you must see while visting Morro Island. The hospitality of the family run Pousada is very unique.We enjoyed the close by sea, taking swims in the natural pools and also in the pousada pool with very very good water quality. The view from the poolside is breathtaking!if you stay around you can find thousands of small colibri birds.The name of the pousada fits into the place.Thank you for the memorable stay!
