We loved our stay at Pousada Aquarela. The Pousada is hidden away amongst a lush rainforest-like garden of leafy plants and large trees. We were greeted when we arrived by Jose who is one of coolest guys we've ever met! He is so warm and welcoming and an invaluable source of useful knowledge! He gave us the low down on...

We are so glad that we stayed here for our 2 nights. Only 5 mins walk to the beaches and bars but far enough away to be peaceful and relaxing. The rooms are spacious, well furnished and clean and probably the best bed and best bathroom we've had yet in South America. The guys running the place could not be...

I really loved my stay at this place. My room was very clean and the view from my balcony beautiful - I liked lying in my hammock and enjoying the peace of this place. You could not hear the noice from the village, but the centre was reachable within some minutes. The breakfast was delicious. José is such a nice...

Perfect room very cozy and spacious, clean with terrace and hammock, bed is comfortable and bathroom clean, if anything wifi didn't always work in the room while it's ok in the reception, breakfast could be better for the price charged yet overall nice stay

Certainly one of the best places in Morro de São Paulo: I just loved it. Fantastic view from all rooms. Excellent breakfasts. A perfect moment, a clean room and the owners, who are Argentinians, are more than very nice people: they really take care of the guests, making sure they are spending a happy moment. There is absolutely no noise...

Aquarela was recommended to us by a friend, and I'm so glad we took his advice and stayed there. Ideal location - close to the main streets and the beaches but far enough away to feel like you're in another world. Very peaceful. Jose the owner is very engaging. I even managed a conversation with him despite me not speaking...

Spent one night in this Pousada and generally speaking the experience could have not been better. Jose is a fantastic host, the rooms can be booked with a great value and the place feels like home. Jose could have not done more to make our stay easy and pleasant. Loved spending some time chatting with him during breakfast, he is...

The pousada is located a just bit away from the main streets and beaches which means you can get some sleep... But it's not too far away from the bars & co (about a 7 minutes walk) We met Jose (the owner) and had a good feeling with him. He was at the breakfast every morning, and every morning he...

It's not that I hated my stay in this pousada. The Italian girl and her husband were very nice, very helpful, but there are many things to change there. First of all my room was up in a hill, we had to go up many many stairs to get to our room...at room few bad surprises, such as sheets with...

My wife and I stayed here for four nights in July. We started in a triple room (as that was all that was available at the time of booking) that was actually more for like 5 people. It proved too large for us, and Georgia was happy to accommodate our request to downsize. We moved to a smaller room, which...
