Great size rooms, very close to the main bus terminal and ferry port when arriving and nice big social area with private pool to relax. Good breakfast too, with eggs made to order and very friendly, helpful staff. Has the added bonus of an excellent pizza parlour 2 mins walk away as well. Unbelievably good value, didn't expect anything as nice as this for what we paid - definitely the best value Pousada we stayed at during our entire holiday.
The main buzz of the ireland is in the Centro, which is 20 mins away by bus. But this is conveniently located for adventures north of the ireland, so don't let that put you off.
Good location, very helpful staff.
It wasn’t prepared for winter (not so cold), because the windows had no glass and the temperature just went through. You will need to ask for extra and extra blankets.
The staff were friendly, breakfast was good and location was close to the ferry. We had great aircon in the room, the rooms were comfortable and quiet. We loved the hammock outside our room! You can buy insect repellant from the front desk. The hotel is close to a small supermarket.
We were disappointed that the staff weren't able to speak English, even though the hotel mentioned English as one of the langues spoken on their Booking profile. However the staff were friendly and with our small smattering of Portuguese we managed fine.
Fantastic- we stayed at the pousada that is part of the main complex, the room was like a five star hotel.. soft sheets, pretty furnishings and funky couches, a comfy mattress, fridge. Parking right outside the door of each chalet. So cheap, and we got an incredibly generous discount from the owner as well. Room serviced every day. The breakfast was fabulous , one of our best in Brazil - toasties, pão de queijo and fresh orange juice put it a cut above the usual. The staff are also particularly good- all exceptionally friendly and helpful. The wifi was decent from our room, despite the reviews about bad wifi on the island.. and a very strong signal if you need to download something big, from the comfy lounge area at reception.
Everything was great.. no fly screens, so spray insect spray if you want to sleep with windows open
