This was great place to relax and unwind. Staff were extremely helpful and gave us lots of information to help us enjoy the area. The beaches locally felt safe both for swimming and security though we did not swim from the beach right outside the back door of the hotel because the weather at the time of our visit had...

These comments are all so super positive and I can't understand why? The place is nice and the pousada is correct. Breakfast is good too and the location as well. So all Ok, right! Maybe it is just me, but I felt the price is too high for what all this is about. The room is very simple, quite large,...

I seriously miss this place. I think I want to go back here and live! I would definitely recommend a week there! The south part of the island is the best! It's quiet, not crowded & bustling or touristy and it's only about 1/2 hr drive or less from the airport & downtown. The rooms are very comfortable & the...

Perfect for relaxing, great rooms, price, place and a lot of nature contact. Klaus, the lodge owner, is always available to give the coordinates of great places, touristic sites or local information. Oh, the breakfast is great!

Lovely quiet place on the beach at the more undeveloped end of the island, yet still close to village, grocery store & bus stop - perfect! Klaus very friendly & helpful - speaking good English and German. Would recommend to anyone wanting a peaceful getaway but with easy access to the rest of the island.

The place is very well built and it is in a quiet part of the island, perfect for a calm and invigorating stay. Breakfast is very good and gives a good amount of energy for the day but I wouldn't mind if it were served a little earlier, let's say,around 7:00 / 7:30 - so we could go earlier to...

Basically stumbled onto this place. This was our first visit to Floripa - we booked another hotel and were unhappy with it. Fortunately a friendly local recommended Pousada Penareia and we booked the last vacancy they had. The owner was very nice and speaks numerous languages including fluent english. The staff was very nice too. The hotel is fairly new...

We stayed at the Pousada Penareia for four nights. It was absolutely perfect. The room is simple, clean, comfortable and the service is four stars! Breakfast is rich and various. There is a large and pleasant common area where you can read and consult books and tourist guides, watch tv or play pool. The Pousada is just behind the Armaçao...

Very nice refuge, lovely rooms, fantastic location, excellent breakfast. Good quality and value for money. Would like to stay longer, will definitely come back. Good base for trekking and exploring, is more than just a beach holiday location. Hire car advised for freedom of movement although very active local bus service.

If you want a perfect inn with is almost like a hotel with an awesome breakfast, air-conditioned rooms, the sea breeze, the silence of nature and one foot step from the almost private beach of Armação...this is your choice!
