Loved my stay at this hotel! Carol was amazing! The food is by far some of the best on the island. Room was clean and updated with a very comfortable bed. The bathroom was spacious and well supplied. The a/c worked great which was nice. The property is very well maintained with a beautiful pool and bar on site! Overall...

It's amazing to find that the quality of food here far surpasses your expectations with every dish you order. I didn't have the luxury of staying at this hotel, but I speak highly of the food because they serve delicious and well-sized portions for an affordable price. They also have specials so that you can enjoy a beer and a...

The best things about this, above average priced pousada (for Fernando de Noronha, expensive for Brazilian average price level), are the friendly and helpful personnel, the nice pool area, the breakfast and the restaurant, where we had the best fish plate on the island, including all the best restaurants. Fernando de Noronha has a general problem with water supply, but...

This was a great hotel! Great location within walking distance to Praia da Conceicao. Our room was large and newly remodeled and we could not have been happier. The beds were plush and the bathroom was also new and large. The breakfast was great, especially the tapiocas! My two year daughter made great friends the staff who were very sweet...

this might be one of the best hotel on the Islan, but sorry, this tells more about the overall standard of lodges on the Island. it is ok, but dont expect too much, simple, clean small rooms, ok breakfast, pool is small. but like all pousadas on :-)the Islan, very expensive regards to what you get for the money

Well established hotel with excellent food, cozy rooms, nice gardens and superb staff. We initially stayed at a local's house booked through the internet, as a lot of locals supplement their income this way. But they were not up to speed so we went to a traditional hotel, the Dolphin Hotel, which was the same price. All their staff seems...

I am starting this review clarifying for the new traveller to Brazil that this is a "Pousada" and not a hotel. A Pousada is like a bed and breakfast with more charm. The prices in this beautiful island are generally higher than elsewhere in Brazil because it costs more to keep and environment like this protected. Most produce and all...

We booked the hotel apparently before all the bad reviews that exist now were written, and after seeing the room I asked myself how did hotel arrive to be number 3 on Tripadvisor. The room was small, basic, dark (because the only small window is towards the public sitting area and pool so you have to use the curtain), in...

The view on the garden was NOT TRUE. It was on its edge at 1.5 meter. It its in a position far from the town and the sea. It is not comfortable to reach any location from that point. It is on the main road which is very noisy due to hundreds vehicles passing there at any hour.
