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!
