Stayed here in August for 4 nights in Chalet 2. Located in Chapada Guimaraes which is about 75km from Cuiaba. Lovely location overlooking the escarpment but is 2.5km out of town so a car is required for ease of getting around. Taxis are available but slow to arrive - costs about BRL 15 - 20 one way to get to...

It is well located for visits to the Chapada dos Guimaraes area, well known for birds and animals. The hotel has great facilities for kids - pools and a water slide, as well as a...

Far from the nearest city, Cuiaba, in the middle of Chapada dos Guimaraes, is an amazing complex of hotel rooms, gardens and swimming pools, sports facilities, restaurant, and a convention center! This would be an ideal location for a retreat, and the pousada does cater to business retreats. The views are spectacular and the sense of vastness of the Brazilian...

The food is delicious, the pools are great, there are great water slides and the staff is friendly. There is a football field, squash area, and even a pool with a net for aquatic sports. The rooms are good and tidy. The downside is that you NEED TO REMEMBER TO LOCK YOUR ROOM because they do not lock automatically and...

“Book chalets 1,2 or 3 - great views. Rent or have a car - easier to get around. Book mid-week - less crowded.”
