From the moment Natalie met us at the airport until we were dropped off at the airport six days later, we were well cared for in this very elegant and professionally-run, yet friendly and comfortable, pousada. Our bungalow was spacious, thoughtfully designed, well appointed, and very private.

With only nine bungalows and a staff of 23 in addition to the family that owns and runs Pousada Solar dos Ventos, service was incredible and caring. Our room was miraculously cleaned while we were away and if we wanted to stay in our bungalow, we were left alone to enjoy its comfort and the amazing view. We had but to ask and things were taken care of - whether ordering a buggy for us to explore the island, or complimentary tea on our terrace, or advice on what to see and do.

Breakfast was good as well as ample. While selections for lunch were limited, everything was fresh and tasty. While dependent on a satellite connection, internet worked well and was available in our room as well as common areas. As others have noted, the location is great. Almost at the end of the main (and only) road and well away from the "village," it is not heavily trafficked and is within walking distance of Soueste Bay, which has a nice beach and good snorkeling.

While not inexpensive, Pousada Solar dos Ventos was worth everything we paid and more - as good as - and in many ways better and more comfortable - than most five star hotels we have stayed in.

Room Tip: All nine bungalows are great and have good views. We loved 101, which is very private and at the end of the walkway. 108 seemed similar.

My husband and I spent a week at this pousada in April and had the most wonderful stay. The rooms are wonderful, spacious, clean, everything works well and every room has a large balcony with lounge chairs and tables overlooking the ocean. The reception staff is the best, especially Renato and Ana Claudia. They helped us with everything from restaurant reservations to booking scuba dives and a private boat ride. Everything they recommended was great and they were always available and responsive to any inquiries. Breakfast was nice with a wide variety of fruits, cold cuts and a la carte options (all included, I ordered eggs and the yummy queijo coalho every day). A few nights we got to the room with a little sweet surprise waiting for us.

Room Tip: We stayed at suite 108, the furthest one from reception with lots of privacy.

The island is very nice but not in the same class as you will find in the Pacific - but this hotel stands comparison with any of the best island hotels I have stayed at. The Master deluxe bungalow is stunning. Staff are friendly. Breakfast and service in the room first class. Only think it misses is direct access to the beach, so a 5 min walk down the hill to the Bay of Turtles.

THE BEST Location in the island! I was not sure at first but after staying in the island for 4 days, I quickly saw that the location is perfect! The hotel people are wonderful as well.
The restaurant is not the best, but the food is still good and the breakfast is excellent.

Room Tip: It is almost the same price to get a Master Luxe room, so chose that one, the view is worth it!

My boyfriend and I spent 5 days in this wonderful pousada. The rooms are huge - 40 meters and super comfortable. All with an ocean view and private balcony. Service is great. Food delicious but not many options. Located southern area of the island.
