“Paradise Found”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2014

So glad we decided to MSP for a one-night island getaway...only wish it was longer. Pousada Porto de Cima is perfectly located next to serene beaches but a short walk to the main party attractions of Morro de SP, a serene and idyllic environment with amazing views (ask for room #9 a short uphill walk but the views make it worth it). Owners and staff could not have been more accommodating, offering great advice, wonderful soundtrack and perfectly-timed coffee when we arrived. Felt like visiting friends.

After a rocky boat ride to Morro, I got a wonderful reception at Porto de Cima.
First impression is a homey kind of atmosphere, but yet offering a up-scale services for a pousada and jungle-like surroundings. The hammock on the patio finishes it off, offering instant relaxation. The breakfast at porto de cima is amazing, and the best I had in Brazil so far. Every day the chef offers something new, next to the fresh fruit and a wide selection of cakes. The reception was extremely helpful, with recommending hotspots and nice restaurants on Morro. Long story short: an absolute recommendation! Pablo, I'll be back.

There are resident pets, well-cared for landscaping, hammocks, fridge in the room. A friendly, trilingual Argentine staff. Great location close to all the beaches, but more importantly, the more tranquil side of the island.

The wifi doesn't work in the room. We were very close to the lobby area, too.

The gardens are absolutely wonderful but the accommodation needs updating. Restaurant in the evening was not available/advertised. The staff were very well coming and helpful.Located on an up-cline, sobe prepared to walk to the beaches.

We travelled with our two small children to Morro in October for a week. Porto de Cima has a perfect location, five minutes walking on a sandy lane to the village centre with all restaurants and shops but secluded in a garden on a hill overlooking the sea. Peace and quiet guaranteed, only the waves and the tropical birds to be heard! The rooms are simple and clean, each one has a terrace with a hammock. The breakfast was very, very tasty. The cherry on the cake is the personal effort the managers put to welcome each guest, give them advice, help out with our little kids...a real antidote to mass tourism :-)

Room Tip: Room 9 has the best view, but you need to climb a hill

We travelled to Salvador purely as the weather in rio wasn't expected to be that great. So we had heard very little about morro de São Paulo. With such a high rating on trip advisor, Porto de Cima was an obvious choice, and when we called they could not have been more friendly and helpful. We were met at the boat station by the lovely Luciana and taken to our room- number 9- with the best view of a little secluded bay- absolutely gorgeous! The rooms were cleaned daily and simple but comfortable. Just perfect for an island getaway, they are set in lovely gardens and feels very private. The location is unbeatable. Breakfast was delicious- freshly made pancakes and other Brazilian treats! The owners were so helpful and made it such a great stay. Our tip- spend lots of time on 4th beach and have prawns at the Piscina restaurant just before it! Paradise.

Thanks Porto de Cima for a memorable time!!

Was met at the port by Lucianna when we arrived. Our luggage was handled by a local who is registered by the local tourism board. Safe and secure. Fluent English, Portuguese and Spanish. EXCELLENT breakfast. Pancakes as good as I've ever had. Highly recommended.
