First of all, I need to confess that the first 2 days I was really upset to have chosen this place and was really upset and angry with anybody who helped put this pousada so high here in Tripadvisor. It is really simple, the beds and mattresses need a major update, it is really far from the beach (1 km) (I mean, if you go all the way to Trancoso, why would you stay in a place without a view?) in the website they say you can play tennis, but the tennis court is VERY far from the pousada, (around 2km?), 10 minute walk to the charming "quadrado" the little center of Trancoso where you will go every evening anyway, (badly lit and badly paved 10 minute walk) and there are a few pousadas right ON the quadrado.
Also, do not stay here if you expect what you get in other countries for this price. Brazil is expensive, Trancoso is very expensive. Accommodations at Pousada Jacaranda are very simple, like 2 or 3 star hotel in terms of comfort.
So the first couple of days I was not happy with our choice of accommodation and even contemplated leaving early and moving elsewhere. But then the beauty of the simple life that Pousada Jacaranda offers got me. We had the pool to ourselves, we read at least 3 books each of us during the week we were there, we enjoyed our daily walk into "town".
End of story: not only did we stay, but I sincerely hope I'll go back some day. Just to relax and enjoy my simple week from the very first day.
