“Reasonable, comfortable, tranquilo, very friendly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2013

We rented a room at Vila tamarindo for 4 nights after Carnival on our first visit to Florianopolis. It turned out to be a little oasis of tranquility with very nice landscaping and a very comfortable pool to hang out at within walking distance of the beach. The room was perfect with a small porch overlooking the grounds and with a hammock for naps. The staff were exceptionally friendly and really helped make our trip to a foreign city a good one. Great breakfast as well. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: Second floor !

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2012

Rooms: really spacious, with big TVs, and comfy beds. Staff was really friendly. Unfortunately some of them dont speak spanish nor english, only portugese.

Garden: quite small but has nice hammocks and a small swimming pool (its a shame that it was closed when the temprature was about 20 degrees).

We were quite upset when we found out that theres no wifi signal in our room because it was at the end of the corridor. They should really fix that.

Distance from the beach is about 10-15 minutes walk. Bus stop is 10 meters from the entrance.

I stayed in Vila Tamarindo for 3 days with my family. The staff is OK. The rooms are very good: air conditioned and TV LCD 32'. The bathroom is very, very simple: there is no "boiler". The pool and the garden are great. The main problem is that the hotel is so far from the beach. The official site shows a wrong position, so I was disappointed. It is required to rent a car to enjoy Campeche and surrounding attractions. In my opinion, BRL 300 is overpriced.

Oi Helio !
Primeiramente gostaria de agradecer sua visita.
Sobre o banheiro ser simples, sem "bolier" , esta foi uma decisão tomada na época do projeto.Por se tratar de pousada ecológica localizada na região sul do país, constatou-se que o aquecimento solar teria resultados inferiores ao elétrico no quesito sustentabilidade. Hoje os estudos comprovam a economia dos recursos hidricos e energéticos em regiões mais frias, onde a sazonalidade prevalece.Mesmo assim, temos suítes padrão Master com chuveiros diferênciados para quem deseja uma qualidade superior.
Quanto a distância da praia, 300 metros, os mesmos são percorridos em 10 minutos de caminhada. O grande ganho nisto é que existe uma área de preservação entre a pousada e a praia deixando prevalecer a natureza no local.
Quanto a tarifa, provavelmente devido ao feriado da páscoa, um pouco mais elevada, mas mesmo assim dentro dos padrões do que a pousada oferece no quarto em que se hospedou e dentro dos padrões de qualidade de nossa pousada.

If you're looking to stay somewhere in the southern end of the island, Tamarindo is a good option, though you'd probably want a car of your own for getting there and away. Rooms have balconies with hammocks, the perfect place for napping after a long day sunbathing or sand dune boarding. Breakfast is something to look forward to here, where you'll enjoy a wide variety of fruits, breads, and cakes. I particularly liked the little crêpes that were served. We were there in October so the pool wasn't opened yet but I hope to return again some day soon.

Room Tip: Get something on the top floor for more sunlight.

Tamarindo is a nice place to stay in Florianopolis. Many people recommended staying towards the North of the island, but I disagree! Our location in Campeche beach was the best, because it was a short trip to either end (north or south) of the island, close to the airport, and near to Downtown. With that said, you HAVE to rent a car. The trip would be impossible with a car, as everything is like 20 minutes away. The pousada is clean, the rooms are nice, and the grounds are safe. The staff as helpful and obliging. Would definitely stay there again!

The south of Florianopolis used to be less developed, but unfortunately around this pousada they are building quite a few apartment blocks, so the ocean view will soon be gone. The pousada itself is nice with a very nice garden. There is a bus stop in front of the pousada, a supermarket nearby and a 5 minute walk to the lonely beach. For dining you have to go by car or bus, there is not much around. Some of the staff speak English, all are very helpful and friendly. They even made us breakfast early because we had to catch an early plane.

Hi ! Nice that you like Pousada Vila Tamarindo eco Lodge. Don´t worry about the ocean view. I know the owner of the green land that souround the pousada. He will not construct anything for at least the next couple of years. So you can come again and enjoy the ocean view. Thanks for the visit.
