Owners are very nice folks and always helpful, excellent breakfast, clean room and nice swimming pool. We stayed in a room with jacuzzi, which is very well worth it. Overall we liked Mata Nativa. Room and bathroom are spacious and there is a DVD selection that, since we went during a lower season, we used it almost every night. But...

It is just great to be so close with the nature, at a river bank, close to an amazing beach and just close to the mistic Quadrado of Trancoso. This place gives you a quiet, clean and relaxing environment sorrounded by nature, art and great service. If you look for privacy, nice place and great location, this is the place...

We stayed at Mata N'ativa for four days during our honeymoon in Brazil and simply loved it. Conveniently located between the Quadrado and the beach and with a small river flowing by it, this is a great pousada to stay in. Pedro, the current manager, was extremely friendly, attentive, and helpful. The entire pousada is nestled in greenery and the...

Execelent breakfast, cozy, charming, good swimming pool, well located, near excelent beaches and the Trancoso "Quadrado". However, bedrooms are much smaller than they look like on the website and the mattress is old and does not smell good. The hotel should replace them immediately.

We were very pleased with our stay at Mata N'ativa from the room (Jacaranda) which was a decent size and included a great patio with two hammocks, to the pousada grounds which were immaculately maintained and full of interesting flowers, plants and trees, to the awesome breakfast (possibly our favorite part), which included fresh juices, great coffee, freshly baked pastries...

This was the third time I stayed at Mata Nativa and I tell what: nothing would make me staying somewhere else. Right in the way to the beach and pretty close to the Quadrado, the location is a plus. Also, the atmosphere is completely easy going and the owners are always ready to help. The rooms are spacious and clean,...

Before we made up our minds staying at Mata Nátiva I was a little concerned about "the location" observations. The place is 6 minutes away from the "Quadrado", the center of Trancoso and 3 minutes away of an enourmous, fantastic beach! The room was insane: we took the " suíte Jequitibá" with a jaccuzzi just for ourselves. If you get...

With respect to the pousada, we enjoyed very much our stay. The place is calm, beautiful, confortable and perfectly integrated into the surrounding forest. The staff is courteous and efficient; they made us feel at home all the time. Breakfast is delicious and enough to let us spend the whole day on they beach without lunch. Although there is a...

After spending some time reviewing the options of staying either in the quadrado OR by the beach, we found Mata N'ativa. After speaking with the owners Daniel and Danella (both with excellent command of English) we were glad to hear the pousada was positioned ideally between both ! Mata N'ativa is not as expensive as some of the other pousada's...

We have just returned from a month in Brazil - 10 nights of which were spent at the lovely Mata N'ativa Pousada. This is a real gem of a place - really well placed half way between the beaches and the gorgeous Quadrado, so quiet and tranquil. The walk up the hill to the Quadrado is not too bad, you...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Mata N´ativa Pousada is an ecolodge of charm very well located walking distance to the village center and to the beach. It was created in an environmental-friendly concept respecting the existing trees, the local ecosystem and wild live. The owners succeeded in developing this small hotel where you feel overwhelmed by nature. Triage of products, recycling, solar panels and energy system control, are part of our initiatives to lessen our impact on nature. Charming ambiances and attention to details are also key elements. The owners always around will welcome you in person. We organize trips in kayaks, bicycles, horseback ridings, etc. ... more   less
