Rooms are good with enough space and very clean. The hotel is can be reached through a small alley from the 3rd beach (allthough this is not really a beach...). The windows cannot be closed properly so if you are on the ground floor put your valuables in the safe.

Thanks for your coments. Only want to say that i use to go swiming here, at the 3rd beach, just few hundreds meters from the pousada. May not be the best beach, but for shure it´s one. If you coudn´t close the window, we have staff to repair anything that doesn´t work. Any way Morro it´s a very safe place...

Pousada Borboleta is a safe, well located, well appointed and comfortable pousada. We were met by Alex, who was warm, genuine and of every assistance during our stay. I am a light sleeper, but slept very well in the quiet and air conditioned room. The bed was very comfortable, the shower was to north american standard in water flow and...

First of all, the advertising said: "hammock in every room", but not on mine, receptionist said was because my room was bigger with two balconies, no hammock then :/ lol. Bedroom's TV size 15" I guess, very small, I didn't even turn it on but if you are one TV person, that's not a good option. Builders and trucks made...

Our advertising is clear and honest. We have 15 rooms, standard SIZE, all of them with hammacock and garden view. We have double or triple rooms, but 4 people can't fit into any of them. You made a reservation for 3 people in a TRIPLE ROOM but you arrived at the Inn with another guest, and needed a room for...

I haven't stayed at Borboleta but saw the rooms which seemed clean and in a good order in comparison to other places offered in Morro de Sao Paulo. The reception desk was very helpful and it was nice to be able to communicate in English. Great place for the money.

I stayed this Pousada six nights in October 2014, house keeping staff impressed me with their professional cleanliness and extra care towards your personal belongings. I have had to leave a good tip for the girls looking after my ground floor room No: 1 being the room I occupied throughout my stay. Breakfast girls were extraordinary by making that extra...

Really happy with this place. For the price compared to everything else close by you can't beat it. Convenient location to the beach. Very comfortable bed. Super helpful English speaking staff/owner. And no complaints with breakfast at all.

If you are looking for a Pousada, that is close enough to the restaurants and supermarket at the second beach but far enough to have a good night of sleep, this is the one to choose. It isn't right at the third beach but ca 50 meters away, which is nice because there aren't too many people walking by right...

After a 15 minute walk from the main entrance uphill and a short walk from the seafront my party arrived at Borboleta. The front desk staff was lovely & helpful. Our room was simple with a varanda, hammock and a good a/c. The bathroom is looking tired but it is clean. The pousada is located opposite a depot but it...
