The location:
Three minutes from the main place of Morro de Sao Paolo, ten minutes from the small harbor (from where you have to climb up a very steep way to the main place), Five minutes walk through the forrest from the small beaches on the west side of the island (which are flooded during high tide), and 10-15 minutes walk through the small town to the first and second beach on the north-east side of the island. The pousada is situated on the edge of the town, in the evening and the night you won´t hear any noise but the sound of the rain forrest.
The pousada:
Located on a steep hillside inside the rain forrest with several small houses containing 1-2 guest rooms, be aware that every coming home is a little breath taking because of many steps to be done in the warm and humid climate. Every room has its own small terrace. Our room was small, but absolutely sufficient, simple but nice furniture and clean with well-functioning fan and aircon. The whole pousada gives you a bit of jungle feeling.
The breakfast:
Taken on a bigger terrace. They serve always fresh squeezed pure fruit juice, simple brasilian rolls, standard ham cheese, marmalade, fresh scrambled eggs on demand, and a very tasty yogurt with cereals, all in all a fine breakfast clearly above Brazilian average.
The service:
Extremely friendly Argentino, who beside of Spanish and Portuguese also speaks English, who spreads a warm and friendly atmosphere, like the other staff you may meet to the breakfast. Small problems in the rooms was fixed immediately. He gave us a lot of good advices for restaurants, beaches etc. which we found perfectly true.

All in all the pousada with the best cost benefit ratio on our in all 5 weeks travel through Brazil with a price of 90 R$ for a double room, why I think it deserves 5 stars even if the rooms and the breakfast are not luxurious.

The wife and I stayed for 10 glorious days in March 2012. We thought the rooms were comfortable, spacious and ultra-clean - not to mention the verandas with exquisite views of nature. Excellent quality no-noise air conditioner, free room-fridge + wall safe. The owner (Jose) was regularly on hand to offer help/advice or just engage in a friendly chat. Top bloke (must be his Irish blood!!). Thanks, Jose, for making our stay so memorable.

I stood with my father in Pousada Aquarela during our visit to Morro de São Paulo. The place is excellent, with good sized rooms nicely decorated with everything one might need (TV, AC, nice shower). The breakfast is top quality. José (the owner) is a very nice person, always there to ask if everything is all right and to provide help whenever possible. The location is excellent in my opinion: very close to the center of the village, but far enough to let us stay and sleep quietly among the trees. Finally, the price is very fair for what it offers (all basics with good quality without luxuries), making it an excellent option in Morro.

My first impressions of Aquarella were: like the room, not too crazy about the location-i wasn't too sure how it would feel walking back at night. However in the end we felt really safe walking around after dark. It is telling about safety that Jose feels comfortable leaving his dvds out at night!(available for guests to borrow). I really enjoyed the little breakfast terrace, a good view point to see a few birds and monkeys. Jose is a nice, chilled guy and it was nice to have a chat over breakfast and learn a little more about Brazil/Morro from someone that has moved there permanently.If you have any mobility issues it would be a good idea mention it/ request a room at the bottom of the stairs. All in all, a good choice in Morro.
