Good choice In Noronha

We spent 5 days In Fernando de Noronha paradise Island, this hotel was just what we need, quiet, Calm, good air conditioned, clean, an excellent fresh breakfast (Nelson, the guy who takes care of lunch is amiable and helpful).

The backyard of the hotel is full of trees and has a functional space with, and a view for the Morro do Pico. I recommend it. The only problem we faced was that they didn’t have ice for our drinks at night.

Excellent services and installations! Amiable and happy staff with great flats fishing cozumel suggestions. Breakfast is fantastic with a significant variety of fruits, yogurt, cereal, cheese, ham, tapiocas, eggs, cakes, bread, milk, coffee, etc.

The rooms are spacious, clean, with excellent air conditioning and satellite tv. The bathroom is well maintained with a good shower.

Pedro, Gustavo & Octavio are great friendly bilingual hosts, and the location is excellent, clean and nearby stores and restaurants. Daily breakfast was always fresh and very accommodating to individual requests. We will definitely come back.

This is a lovely place to stay, friendly staff, walking distance beaches and a couple of good restaurants. It offers a great breakfast. Good value. We stayed in one of the cabanas, and it was perfect.

We booked Pousada do Marcilio because a friend stayed there for two weeks and told us that the place was worth going. Pousada do Marcilio is guesthouse with around 9 units, ensuite. It is a little bit pricey on the high season; however, its location and breakfast and room service are above the other lodging average.

Excellent Pousada with breathtaking view

I must confess this pousada wasn’t my first choice in Noronha. However, our family had stayed there before and highly recommended it. We decided to give it a try, and we couldn’t be happier.

The location is excellent, the landscape is beautiful, with lovely views of the ocean, and the bungalows are huge and nicely decorated. But the real difference comes from the staff. They work around the clock and do everything in their power to make you happy.

They catered to our every need – including going the extra length when I was caught a horrible cold that knocked me down for our short stay. They made me soup and tea and were always asking if there was anything else we needed. Plus, the food there is fantastic, and it tastes just like home. We would highly recommend Solar dos Ventos to anyone visiting Noronha. They are the best!

The only small thing I would mention – which is not entirely their fault – is that we had a bad experience with the buggy rental agency they recommended. But still, they tried to remedy the situation and also gave us an amazing cozumel snorkeling recommendation we’ll try later.

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 fantastic 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, the internet worked well and was available in our room as well as common areas. As others have noted, the location is excellent. 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 South Bay, which has a beautiful beach and excellent 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.

Amazing stay

We just returned from a fantastic 6 day trip to the island the first week of August. The place is at the far end of the island, with no habitation to one side, or in front or in back. So the views and privacy from the porch are lovely.

There are not many places where you can have a beautiful view of the ocean – mostly these are the restrictions of the island, wanting to keep it pristine and not built up. The rooms had beautiful bathrooms (water temp was never hot), comfortable bed (we had a place for a couple.

But also had our 3-year-old with us, and there was room in the bed with us, we could not find reasonable triple rooms at the time), small fridge with refreshments, perfect air conditioning, closet space with safe, and on the porch a table couple chairs and a hammock.

They have only four rooms. Breakfast was fresh and tasty, the hours were good. The staff was outstanding, they did not speak English, and we did not speak much Portuguese, but we both tried hard and managed through with smiles. We felt very safe there, it was quiet (also part of being just outside of the town), and we were within 15-20 minute walk of a couple of beautiful beaches.

At the end of the day, whatever your problems, everyone there is willing to help, other tourists included – that is part of the charm of their cozumel fishing and snorkeling tips for our next adventure, and was no different at this pousada.

Don’t come here expecting a usual hotel, these places are small, life on the island seems fun (was fun), but harder for the people working there, it is expensive, for everyone. Again, part of that is due to the efforts of the Brazilians to keep the island as pristine and available as they can. You cannot go wrong staying here.

Super pousada! The rooms are comfortable, the location perfect, and Eva makes a delicious breakfast every day. Very good. Thanks, dear Eva. We had a great time in Fernando de Noronha. I do really recommend this pousada.

Good value and central location for exploring the island

Excellent experience at Pousada da Germana. Clean hotel, friendly staff, and good breakfast. The rooms are not huge but very comfortable. Considering the rather high prices for accommodation in Fernando de Noronha, this is definitely a place I would recommend.

Great location in Vila dos Remedios- easy walking distance to good restaurants (Flamboyant and Xica da Silva were favorites), groceries and Praia dos Cachorros and not too much further to Praia do Meio and Praia da Conceicao. Friendly and helpful staff who recommended me the cozumel trikes tours in Mexico.

Spotless rooms with a clothesline in the shower, hooks on the room wall, hairdryer, multiple outlets in the room. Comfortable beds, very nice quality towels, and they provide beach towels for daily use. Breakfast was good with the option for eggs, omelets, queijo coalhado, and tapiocas.

Very generous afternoon snack from 4:30-6:30. The lack of bedside lighting so brings a small backlight or headlamp. Saw hammock hooks but no hammocks, however, I did not ask about availability, so maybe they had them, and you just had to ask.

Earplugs are a good idea since it is near the road. Shares premises with Tubaroes and Malibu. We were in the room #1 near the reception, and it was not as noisy as I expected, but that probably depends on multiple factors. Earplugs are a good idea for sleeping mainly because that room, #2, and the rooms of Pousada Tubaroes are near the road.

All walks to the closest 3 beach are downhill on cobblestone roads, thus uphill for the step back, but we preferred walking to renting a buggy. Shuttle service is provided from/to the airport by a designated tour company- it was Na Onda when we visited.

There is a terrible WiFi, right, but who cares? You can just relax and enjoy the island. And in case of need, they will support you with flight check-in and emergency emails. The location is perfect! Is it the old village, with beaches, restaurants, grocery stores and so on. We will definitely come back!

Good location, close to the beach, friendly staff

We stayed at Pousada Malibu for 5 nights followed by a 2-night stay at their sister pousada Tobarao. The room in Malibu was small but clean. Tobarao offers more space and newer rooms.

The reception was beneficial (especially Camila and Thiago) Pricewise both pousadas seemed reasonable considering high prices in Noronha. We would recommend it and would stay again.

The localization is perfect, and the staff is more than excellent from the reception, kitchen, and cleaning. All the people are helpful, smiling, and extremely friendly with their cozumel mini sub suggestions. We were a large group, and there is no complaint. Beds and pillows excellent, new towels, and the most organized person at reception.

We were fortunate to get the room, actually after that our reservation was confirmed for other pousada and after buying the flight tickets only 2 days before the trip, pousada was canceled the day after because was already full! But, we haven’t been abandoned.

As people on FdN are charming, they found us a room in Pousada Malibu, inaugurated on 15. December 2014. We were the first guests in room No 5.

Everything was completely new, freshly painted. Room is spacy, has private bathroom, with air condition, small fridge, TV with Sky connection, Wi-Fi which didn’t work well but this is the problem on all the island. Also, 3G doesn’t work well. All is very clean. Changing the towels is daily and sheets every second or third day(I don’t remember well). It’s safe as the whole island is, an oasis of Brazil. We were with 10-month-old baby, and they provided a crib, again wholly new.

This place is great. Stuff is very polite, friendly, happy to prepare for you or to teach how to do tapioca (north-east specialty, kind of crap). Also, they would make omelet and few other things on request. Daily are serving fresh juice, yogurt, coffee, fruits, ham, cheese, some worm pie or similar.

Relaxing stay with excellent service

Our trip to Fernando de Noronha left us with mixed emotions. The island itself is stunningly beautiful from a distance and the beaches some of the best we have ever been to.

However, once you step away from the beach, you are confronted with what can only be described as long term neglect for the development of the island.

I am simply cannot understand where all the money that is paid in entry fees and passes goes. Staff recommended us a cozumel snuba tour for my family. Locals advise us the money is not returned to the island and it certainly appears that way. It is angering knowing that our hard earned travel money is lining the pockets of some corrupt or incompetent politician in Recife instead of giving us a better holiday experience.

The amount of rubbish lying in the streets and then the general lack of quality infrastructure (e.g., airport, sealed roads, pier, etc.) defines the high costs that tourists are charged. Roads are not sealed to the beach means that if it rains (and it rained every day for us) a trip to the beach is a mud infested struggle that simply ruins the experience.

There is nothing fun about endlessly cleaning mud from your feet, your clothes, your buggy (standard cars simply cannot make it to the beach if it rains), etc. The locals we spoke to appear to be equally frustrated, and they make up for it with their exceptional service, friendliness, and food quality. Fortunately, the staff at the hotel were brilliant and were a significant reason were able to leave the island feeling happy and not completely ripped off. They were always friendly and willing to meet our needs.

Our trip would have been a disaster without them. The hotel facilities were perfect for our needs – clean and well presented. The food was good although overpriced for the quality which varied too much – sometimes the food was excellent and other times overcooked (e.g., our lobster dinner).

I doubt that we will ever return to the island as it is overpriced compared to other travel options elsewhere in Brazil (e.g., Amazon, Pantanal) and the rest of the world. However, if we do return, we would certainly stay at Pousada Triboju again.

Wonderful, friendly service and good facilities

A beautiful place, with a great host and employees. We received a warm welcome and friendly answers to questions about local things to do or try. Breakfast is delicious, and the chefs are very friendly. We were very close to restaurants and shops and our favorite beaches, Praia do cachorro and da Conceição.

Comfortable rooms, if somewhat small, and friendly reception, garden and a little cafe for breakfast. The location is close and convenient to shops and restaurants. Our host Josi was amazing, helping us with all sorts of things over and recommendations about atv in cozumel Mexico, such as booking trips, printing documents, and carrying our luggage!

Josi and her team went out of their way to help us enjoy our stay. Access is a little tricky as it’s off the main road, but that seems to be the norm here. Highly recommend!

I just came back from Noronha, and after looking for more than 2 months for a nice “pousada,” I booked “Del Mares,” directly with the owner, Pedro Henrique. I’m so glad I did and stayed with them. Service is fantastic! Pedro is always taking care of his guests, and he took me back to the airport himself. Breakfast is amazing!

I thought it was going to be like American continental breakfast, and I was so wrong. The pousada had bread, juices, tapioca, a variety of sweets, fruits, tea, coffee, ham, cheese and around 4pm they were always serving desserts and a drink for the guests to be able to socialize.

The room is cute. The bathroom was small but beautiful! Thank you so much for making me feel home, Pedro. I will be back and for sure will stay with you guys again!

A/C worked great. The staff were amiable and fun to talk to about island life etc. great cooks as well – I had my first tapioca with cheese here. The manager is also friendly and knowledgeable and helped with booking the island tour as I wasn’t sure what I would do (the scuba diving was inevitable). Altogether I enjoyed my stay and looking forward to a more extended visit.

Wonderful small guest house

There was a free shuttle to and from the airport. The Pousada owner Duda speaks English very well (even though he claims not to). The staff is exceeding, friendly, and helpful.

We arrived to find a personalized welcome tile with our names on the door to our room (and we were allowed to take it home as a souvenir); there were rose petals on the bed and a gift bottle of sparkling wine on ice in the room. The breakfast is excellent and plentiful, with fresh juices and all kinds of custom food made to order along with an excellent buffet selection.

A small kitchen is available for guest use. Our room, including bathroom/shower, was always clean and well stocked. The Pousada is in walking distance from several restaurants, many points of interest, and at least 3 beaches. It was an excellent experience all around!

We had an enjoyable experience at this Pousada. It was in a good location, tranquil, the staff was terrific by giving tips about some deep sea fishing riviera maya trips in Mexico, and the rooms were comfortable and clean.

There is ample deck area providing a space to relax, as well as a great outdoor shower for cleaning up when arriving from the beach. Loved the fresh tangerine juice at breakfast. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it.

This is a great option to stay in Fernando de Noronha. There are only a few rooms, so the place is intimate and quiet. The rooms are relatively small, but they are neat, clean, and air-conditioned. Breakfast is excellent, and the outdoor area to eat is charming. But bring repellent, the mosquitoes are vicious there!

We found Thania to be very helpful. She greeted us on arrival and explained everything about the hotel and gave us tips for the island. She also gave us her WhatsApp details so that we could message her with any questions (the staff at the hotel don’t speak English). She was accommodating and even booked us a table at Mergulhao for sunset.

Best place to stay in Fernando de Noronha

My family and I can’t say enough about Pousada Atobá. The rooms are spotlessly clean (Thank you, Thaís) and very comfortable. All the staff is amiable and are always ready to help you with a smile (Mr. Jeroã e Ana Paula).

Breakfast made me gain a few extra pounds because I could not resist the fantastic food Dona Claudia makes every morning (got to try Crepióca and Dolce de Leite Cake). Also big thanks to Narciso e Laine. Congratulations to Dona Lúcia for such a special place and thank you for the best snorkeling in riviera maya recommendations. It was a pleasure staying there our first visit to this paradise, and we will be back.

Pousada Atoba is located on a mild hill. It is at walking distance of the cachorro beach (15 mins), the bodró beach (40 mins) and the port (30 mins). The nearest bus station is at 10 mins walking. The best part of your staying here is breakfast, always different with a choice of mixed fruit, juices, cakes, and a cook ready to prepare tasty tapioca or omelets.

On the odd side, the room is very tiny, with no proper place for dresses. If you are staying more than 5 days, it is hard to leave the room in order. The staff is charming (maybe except the owner who looks a bit grumpy). No one speaks English, but this applies more or less to the whole island. The room was clean, but not spotless.

My wife and I had a great stay here. The staff was excellent, the room was clean, and the location was great and made heading for a restaurant on foot comfortably. The room was a little on the small side, but nothing too wrong. The excellent service and more helped make it a memorable stay on this exotic island.

Fernando de Noronha is a beautiful place with many challenges if you do not speak Portuguese. Although staff at Pousada Atoba does not speak English, yet every other aspect of the Pousada is perfect. Rooms are clean, TV has good reception, wifi is “ok,” (true all over the island), breakfast was much better than expected.

We had booked a boat tour the day we were leaving, the tour ended at 2 pm. Checkout is at noon. Pousada Atoba held our luggage AND allowed us to shower and freshen up before our return flight. This was HUGE! Thank you Pousada Atoba!

Very friendly and clean pousada

People at this B&B are so lovely and polite. Facilities and breakfast are ok. Price is a bit expensive. We thought it was because it is a carnival, but we heard price is high all year around. It makes the island’s pública A/B class. Despite it all, the staff is very helpful, and they help to overcome anything. Recommend it.

This pousada, first of all, has friendly staff who told us about some cozumel discover scuba tours for my family. It starts with some informative emails after booking, a free transfer from the airport and a warm welcome with a typical café da tarde!

Our specific requests during our stay were also handled very friendly and quickly (like having a bottle of ice drinking our own champagne). The rooms are clean, and the breakfast is fresh with many options and also open for special requests. The bed and douche are also comfortable. All in all, we have had a great time!

I tend to find the critical comments I read of the pousada a bit silly. Most of us weren’t born yesterday…it isn’t hard to pick out reviews from folks that get their vacations out of a “can” or those that go on vacation seemingly wanting disappointment. It is like a bunch of people only found out about the place when they were in Brazil for the World Cup.

The showers are luke-warm, but that is life on FdN. It is a hot/humid place. The people live an existence very different from most. Cherish that experience rather than burdening friendly folks with your attitude while giving them a great reason to stereotype you (and your culture) like any other greedy tourist.

Pousada Lenda das Aguas allowed me to experience places and people I really never knew could exist. Everything is 4-5 times as expensive on the island, and I am still left to wonder where the poor folks (I have to believe most are near or below poverty) get their stuff. The market nearby appeared to have local patrons as well as tourists.

I found a more significant variation in pricing at restaurants than at the store. I showed up, and my atm card didn’t work, that was scary. I have a Chase ATM card, and the machines wouldn’t read it, although the device said PLUS and VISA. I had USD luckily and when to a place “Atlantis” to exchange. Loved here!
