Pousada Leao Marinho, for sure is one of the best cost benefit in the island. They picked us up in the airport (3rd party provider) and it is locate 2 blocks from the main local village, very close to main restaurants, stores to rent bikes, snorkelling gear, pharmacy etc. The "pousada" is simple, but has rooms with enough space for...

Excellent accommodation - clean, AC and delicious breakfast. Mari collected me from the airport, lent me her bike so I could cycle around the island and gave me fab excursion recommendations, which she organised for me. I felt completely looked after and in the best hands! Really welcoming and comfortable place to stay. My friend stayed in Pousada Tubarao and... More

The hotel itself is central and provides all the essentials for a trip on Fernando. Ricardo couldn't have been a better host! He cooked prawns for us, threw a little party and even made us a Brazilian mix tape. Maria Lucia was awesome too, she knows everyone in town and kindly set up a tour of the island with a... More

The Pousada itself was ok. For sure you pay too much for what you get but I guess that’s Noronha. It’s clean and when we had a Problem with the shower it was fixed more or less quickly. What we didn’t like at all was the rudeness of the guy working there. On our first day we asked him for... More

having read such good reviews on Tripadvisor, we chose this pousada. the hosts Marilucia and Ricardo were friendly and helpful. however, we were disappointed about the room. The only good point was that it was spacious. Negative points: no view to the outside, no bedside table on one side of the bed, no hanging space for clothes, just shelf space,... More

Lovely pousada owned/run by an extremely nice couple and their pleasant staff who went out of their way to help us and our friends (who were not even staying here). It was an ideal spot for us as we stayed for a week. Right in town and walking distance to Praia do Meio and Praia do Cachorro. Would definitely recommend... More

My wife left her purse in the room and we went for a tour to Atalaia, leaving the room keys with the hotel staff. When we came back, her purse had disappeared. After going to the police station, the purse was found inside a car in front of the hotel, but without the money (400 reais = 180 euros)
