“Peaceful posada, tasty breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 December 2011

If you're looking to stay somewhere in the southern end of the island, Tamarindo is a good option, though you'd probably want a car of your own for getting there and away. Rooms have balconies with hammocks, the perfect place for napping after a long day sunbathing or sand dune boarding. Breakfast is something to look forward to here, where you'll enjoy a wide variety of fruits, breads, and cakes. I particularly liked the little crêpes that were served. We were there in October so the pool wasn't opened yet but I hope to return again some day soon.

Room Tip: Get something on the top floor for more sunlight.

Tamarindo is a nice place to stay in Florianopolis. Many people recommended staying towards the North of the island, but I disagree! Our location in Campeche beach was the best, because it was a short trip to either end (north or south) of the island, close to the airport, and near to Downtown. With that said, you HAVE to rent a car. The trip would be impossible with a car, as everything is like 20 minutes away. The pousada is clean, the rooms are nice, and the grounds are safe. The staff as helpful and obliging. Would definitely stay there again!

The south of Florianopolis used to be less developed, but unfortunately around this pousada they are building quite a few apartment blocks, so the ocean view will soon be gone. The pousada itself is nice with a very nice garden. There is a bus stop in front of the pousada, a supermarket nearby and a 5 minute walk to the lonely beach. For dining you have to go by car or bus, there is not much around. Some of the staff speak English, all are very helpful and friendly. They even made us breakfast early because we had to catch an early plane.

Hi ! Nice that you like Pousada Vila Tamarindo eco Lodge. Don´t worry about the ocean view. I know the owner of the green land that souround the pousada. He will not construct anything for at least the next couple of years. So you can come again and enjoy the ocean view. Thanks for the visit.

it was the perfect place for our vacation. just as we imagined. very freindly staff, delicious breakfast, very comfortable apartments, beautiful garden and close enough to walk to the beach. For us important: far away from all the crowds.

We arrived to the middle of a highway, far from any services, to a hotel being overshadowed by the constant sound of construction. It may have been bearable if there were somewhere to go for reprieve, but you had to take a car to even get the the beach.

The AC in the rooms did not work, and the fans hardly did an adequate job. I would stay far away from this resort, and stick to something a little more honest and civilized.

Undoubtedly, each part has its own viewpoint which we cannot disaccord. I entirely agree that the construction next to the inn, which is a set of deluxe residential buildings, may have caused some nuisance. Anyway, it has already been finished. Regarding the necessity of using a car to go to the beach, which is found within 10 minutes walking in the nature with no roads to cross, what can I say? The inn is spotted in a privileged location in the island, basically in the middle of it which means a strategic position for such a big island as Florianopolis. We are situated at Avenida Campeche, the main avenue in Campeche beach that borders the ocean. There is a bus stop right in front of the inn and we are 10 minutes by car far from the best bars and restaurants of the island. The service infrastructure next to the inn is still precarious but there is a supermarket, a pharmacy and a snack bar just few steps from here. In reference to the air conditioning that did not work and the ceiling fans that did not provide adequate ventilation, I have nothing to say except that this comment does not correspond to the inn features. This comment is also very strange, because the rooms which offer A/C do not offer fans and vice versa. The flats have always been refurbished and their air-conditionings are the ‘split’ type; they are very silent and we have never had one defective device as well as the ceiling fans which I do guarantee that they do a good job.
