I went to this inn with my german husband and his parents and the love it so much. It was the first time i stayed in a inn closer to nature (there is many trees and a brook pass above this inn) and it was so relaxing. That is a good inn for enjoying nature and relaxing. At this inn...

The pousada was very welcoming and a nice gesture to get a glass of bubbles upon arrival. Only some of the receptionists spoke English but then they used google-translate on their PC to help the best they good. Breakfast has a good selection of bread, jams, cheese, ham, cakes etc, and even some yoghourt and cereals. Afternoon tea was a...

Stayed for 1 night and wished it could be for longer. Well situated, both too far from the city center (although nothing is very far). Staff is very nice, breakfast is very good and offers plenty of options. Room was clean, with a nice view of the mountain. They offer a nice bubbly wine upon arrival.

I'm so glad i spent a week on the island relaxing at the end of 5 month trip and Pousada Riacho was the best place to do that! Lovely clean rooms and the staff are all so so friendly. Breakfast is very good and a lot of selection.

This pousada is really cute. It has small but nicely decorated rooms, efficient bathrooms with a hot shower (the more water you want the colder it gets, so choose a nice small stream for a steaming hot shower.) Free shampoo, bodylotion, vanity set etc. Room gets cleaned everyday, including new sheets and towels. Breakfast is good, with delicious fruits and...

It was a really pleasant peaceful stay away from the chaos of Rio. We arrived on the island and in the rush to catch our transport we forgot to print the map with the location of the Posada. So it was a bit of a problem to find as it's not signed anywhere at the ferry terminal like some of...

It is a very cozy, nice and romantic pousada. One of the bests in Ilha. Very close to town, but quiet. The girls of the reception treated us great, and we also enjoyed the spa. The massage was amazing!

The staff were very welcoming and friendly, the afternoon tea was a lovely touch and the room and breakfast area were delightful. Despite it raining the duration of my stay, I still found the island very beautiful and tranquil and there was a large dvd library to keep guests entertained whist the weather was bad. This place is perfect for...

We think it's overrated and expensive. The location is good, but we had some issues with the noise (and not only) which were ignored. There was also an issue with the lack of electricity and thus with the loud generator. We asked for a discount but again did not get any answer, not even a polite negation. But the breakfast...

Good day! The eletricity is really an issue in the Island, and we know the generator is noisy, but it is better than not having any lights at all. Glad you liked our homemade breakfast though. Thanks for staying with us!
