"We can't begin to tell you how amazing our stay has been here. It has surpassed all our expectations. We were literally speechless when we arrived!!
It is the most perfect place... We can't think of any way you could make it better. The jungle, the mountains, the sea, village and beautiful Pousada combine to make this I think our favorite place on earth! And the best place to begin our honeymoon.
We hope you continue your good work in helping to preserve the local environment and support the community here. Such friendly and competent staff who clearly take so much pride in what they do and where they come from are also makes this place special. Thank you, love"

Homiyar Panday, New Jersey, USA

"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. A little piece of paradise where we chilled out, admired the stunning view and although we wrote easily have whiled away the time on your stunning deck. We are glad we did a morning on the Schooner as well as a surfing trip to the big beach which was deserted.
A little tour of the nearby "plantation" was very interesting and kind of your manager to bring us there and show us how life is lived by the locals.
We appreciated the sustainability sentiment and the cooking was outrageously delicious! The ceviche on the Schooner was surprising hit with all 3 of us.
We will certainly recommended here to our friends in the UK and particularly promote the calm, polite friendliness of all the staff. Thank you"
Michael Seel

"I would have never imagined that Paradise was in Brazil… but I was wrong! Pousada Picinguaba… Paradise is a place where everything looks magic thanks to a peculiar energy that is surrounding such a wonderful place. The incredible nature that is around you makes you look at things through a different perspective and with new colors. The super-tasty food and drinks makes every single meal a unique experience. But on top of all this, friends that we met here and with which we had the pleasure to share such unbelievable experiences seem as close as our oldest ones! Thank you! Al presto!"
