entre o gerente, o espaço, a natureza, os quartos tranquilos amplio com tudo possível, o cafe da manha junto - tenho certeza que vou voltar com meu namorado duas vezes por ano.

Our experience at Riacho dos Cambucas was one of the best vacations we have ever had. The service was great - every one was kind and helpful. They had movies for the nights when you're too exhausted to go out and games for the beach. Not to mention the delicious breakfast with brasilian fruits and juices and the amazing rooms. It's worth it to spend a little bit extra because I have read here about noise, etc between the wooden walls, but we didn't hear anything at all. As long as you walk and swim and enjoy the beautiful island all day - you'll sleep soundly when you get home at night :)

Room Tip: Vale a pena pagar um pouco mais para um quarto porque são mais tranquilos, tem rede e vista da jardi...

We arrived during a torrential storm, and this Pousada was like a little haven. The rooms were beautifully presented, clean and large enough for our needs. Outside the rooms were hammocks, and a great communal area (if it had been a bit warmer - but we were there in Winter!). They had DVDs to borrow, which considering the weather at the time was quite welcoming. The breakfast was one of the best we had in Brazil. Made to order eggs, and a toasted cheese sandwich maker, amongst fresh fruit and the traditional Brazilian breakfast fare of cake! Every afternoon they put out tea and cakes for when you returned from your hike/beach which was always welcome.
The only downsides for us was that the water in the shower was barely warm, and the owners spoke no English at all. We aren't typical English tourists who expect everyone to speak our language fluently, but considering the lonely planet suggests discussing the different hikes with your guesthouse, we were expecting to at least be able to communicate with them. Perhaps this was our fault due to our lack of Portuguese....
However overall this Pousada was lovely and I would highly recommend.

Stayed here for 2 nights and it was a great place to chill and relax. Our room was downstairs and was small but did contain everything we needed. The shower was good and there was strong air conditioning and a fridge. It takes a few minutes to get into the town centre but the walk felt safe and was nice to be tucked back for quietness. There was a great selection at breakfast and they will make eggs for you too in the way you want. A lovely quaint place to stay and would definitely stay again.

We stayed here after reading about it here on trip advisor. It's a lovely place, way back in the town, took a while to find it but when we did we were pleased it was not in the thick of the town. It's only about 10 minutes to stroll into the main part.
The room was clean and large, hair drier, fridge, shutters, and a hammock just outside on the balcony.
Breakfast was brilliant. Loads of quality food, loads of choice too. Cakes, breads, cereals, fruit. And at 4pm daily they serve afternoon tea.

There were only 2 complaints. 1. When the town had a power cut in the afternoon, the hotels generator would not start so we were in darkness with no shower (power shower) after doing the 5 hour walk through the jungle to Lopes Mendes. 2. The people in the cabin above ours were extremely noisy, they played music, walked around the room a lot - the cabins are made of wood and the noise travels. This is not the owners fault, it was just inconsiderate guests.

Overall a brilliant place and very helpful staff who though they did not speak English (and we can only manage a bit of Spanish, let alone Portuguese so we can't complain) and so they used google translate, which was really handy!

Room Tip: Probably and upstairs room so you don't hear people above you.

Everything was great. The room was spotless, the place was quiet and relaxing and the breakfast was excellent. It was easily the best pousada I've stayed in. Oh and the staff was all so courteous and incredibly helpful. I highly recommend it!

I loved the view, the service and pretty much everything about it. The only issue was that we lost a ring (cheap but looked expensive) that we think was taken by the cleaning lady. There is no Internet but that is in the whole island. And the biggest issues was no way to take money out there or anywhere. Overall I give them 8 out off 10

We stayed two nights at this lovely pousada. It really is like staying in your own personal rainforest - lush, tropical and stunning. I would echo the comments about it being like a wonderful treehouse.

Rooms are fine, though the walls are a little thin, so if there is much noise you do hear what is going on around you. Staff were excellent. Sergio was on duty most of the time we were there. He speaks fluent English and was generally very helpful and a lovely guy. He gave us beach towels, face masks and snorkels for our ventures out to the beaches around the island.

Breakfast was excellent - a great range of fresh fruit, juices, cereal, cold meats, cheese, savoury dishes, eggs cooked to order, and cakes. There were also tea, cakes and biscuits available in the afternoon/evening.

The pousada is just a couple of minutes stroll from the wharf and the centre of Abraão. It was quiet (low season) while we were there but I imagine that in peak season the centre of Abraão would be much busier and the peace and quiet of the pousada's location would be a distinct benefit.

Overall, highly recommended. I would definitely stay there again.
