The Pousada da Vigia is a must to anyone traveling down to Floripa. What a place! Everything was perfect, to the last detail.
The staff really make you feel at home, the food is superb and you really get the best bang for your back. Need a car? Worry not, the manager (who is awesome btw) will talk straight with the rental guys and bring you one. Wanna do some sightseeing? They now the island front to back and have maps on hand. Whatever you want, this guys can provide, on the cheap.
The breakfast is really something; I've gone from Thailand to NY and never had one so good, partly because the food was awesome and instantly made to order, and also because the sights from the restaurant are simply out of this world.

Don't think twice, this is the place where you wanna stay. You'll be glad you trusted me!

We stayed 05 nights in this beautifull place, the breakfast was full of fruits and delicious things to eat, the service was very good with kind people ready to serve us.
The place is an old mansion, knowed as the governor house, with charming areas, nice rooms and an incredible view of the Lagoinha beach. We really enjoy it and everybody are expecting to return the next vacation time.

We had a fantastic 4-night stay at the pousada, it's a very special place. The staff could not have been more accommodating. Our room was great (you get to pick your room when you book and we chose #5 and highly recommend it - quite possibly the most comfortable bed ever, and on the end of the building so it's private, with a gorgeous sea view), small but everything you needed with very nice linens. It was impossible not to relax at the pousada, with the beautiful views and sounds of the waves crashing. Drawbacks would be that it is a bit far from towns/amenities/the airport (about a R$100 cab ride from the airport). Frankly, if you are just looking to relax though, there is no reason to leave. The restaurant on site is quite good and VERY reasonable. Massages are available on-site and they even have a BBQ area in case you want to make dinner for yourself. The beach is just beautiful and the water is very calm and easy to swim in, great for families. Wireless internet throughout the property.

An interesting note - pretty much all of the staff speaks a bit of English (some are fluent) but they don't let on that they do, if you speak Portuguese with them.

The pousada da vigia is located on the northern tip of the island of Florianopolis. It is the old house of a state governor. It has since been completely revamped for the hotel.

The settings is amongst in Floripa and the service is superb. My advice would be to try to stay in one of the "luxury suites" which are a step above in comfort for a reasonably higher price. Luxury suites have private roof top, sauna, tv room.

Overall its a great place for couples. Strongly recommended.

It's a beautiful house, very nice common space, but the rooms are really bad.

My wife and I are seasoned travelers, we don't mind simple, as long as it is charming. We selected this hotel looking at its website. Very deceiving !! The common areas and the view are really nice, but the rooms look like they belong to a totally different hotel. Really simple, small, no place to put your luggage, noisy a/c, bad linen, bad bathroom. Overall pretty bad.

The location is very good if you want to hang out by the hotel and attend to the local beach. Which is nice, family oriented.

The beach is within very easy access from from the hotel.

The pool area of the hotel is small but charming. It overlooks the ocean.

Breakfast was good. Not great.

Service was good.

Overall we enjoyed our stay there, but expected much more from the "charming" pousada portrayed in their website and also due to belonging to the "Roteiro do Charme" a hotel family like that sells itself as "charming".
