Pousada Guapuruvu

Reviewed 10 October 2012

Beautiful cosy spot next to a small river surrounded by jungle trees. Very nice patio with a hammock to relax in. We had the smaller two story room with the bedroom upstairs. Loved it. Really romantic. Location is a short walk from the town centre, but for young people not annoying. Breakfast was great too not to mention the fantastic hospitality of the owners. They speak a bit English and can give you advice on where to go and how. Would recommend this hostel to young couples looking for a romantic and quiet place to stay.

The pousada is in a wonderful location, surrounded by trees and wildlife with a stream flowing at the back. There is a lovely communal space where you can sit or lie in a hammock and absorb the peace. Our room had a comfortable bed and a balcony and was kept spotlessly clean.
The breakfast included ham, cheese, all sorts of fruit, home-made cakes and jam, cereals and freshly squeezed fruit juice which changed daily, and very good coffee.
The owners, Creuza and Leuma, are really friendly and kind, and they gave us good advice regarding places to go on the island and places to go after we left. They also filled our bottles up with filtered water whenever we needed it.
Overall a wonderfully comfortable and relaxing place to stay with my idea of a perfect breakfast.

Very welcoming owners who speak good English. The Pousada is located a little away from the stressful Abraao in a magnificent little jungle garden with a river running beside the house. Our room was unfortunately not as beautiful. Terrible humidity smell with less than simple equipment but just a noisy fan and a cold shower. Bed sheets were moist and the general aspect was kind of rudimentary. The weather was also bad so it didn't help. We've asked to get another room but the humidity was issue was the same. Owners were very helpful though... Breakfast was fine!

Stayed 3 nights and were really happy with our choice. Very friendly atmosphere and lovely setting (backs onto a river and forest so wakeful up to jungle sounds). It is a 10 min walk from the beach front, but the street is well lit so no issues walking back after a beach front dinner.

If you can, ask to stay in the chalet; it is slightly smaller as split over two floors, but has a balcony overlooking the garden and is just a bit different. The other rooms are nice as we stayed in one the first night (chalet had people in). Breakfast is served in the garden and is good with plenty of fruit, cake, range of bread, cheese, ham and eggs. They also have WiFi which is really handy (I am writing this review from the balcony).

In this price band, I doubt you will find better as was really good value. So if you are ok with a short walk I would definitely recommend.
