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!
