Mata N'ativa Pousada

Reviewed 12 May 2016 via mobile

We spent one night here. Amazing Owner, staff, & pousada. Everything was on point & the attention to detail was great. It's located close to the Praia Nativo as well as the Quadrado so it's easy to get to the great sites in Trancoso.

We stayed in the room with the outdoor tub on the front porch of the apartment. That was a great addition. The tub has jets and it's simple to have your own little hot tub for a quiet and calm night surrounded by the forest and beautiful gardens.

The area is very secure. Great parking inside the gate if you have a car.

Enjoyed and we will be back.

Rooms were comfortable, we were 2 families so we took the rooms closest to the parking lot, both of them had the Jacuzzi which was great! I believe rooms on the higher floor would have a nice view but with small children we did not want those rooms. It is rustic and very Eco-friendly so the rooms and the entire layout is geared around that idea.

We rented a car (highly recommended even if the roads are bad/dirt roads). It is a 5 minute drive from the quadrado and 5 minute drive to the beach. We could have walked tot he beach too. Someone in the quadrado recommended that we do not walk to the posuada after dark using the short cut so we always drove.

Breakfast was fresh and wholesome and they took into account dietary constraints. They also baked a cake for my husband on his birthday. We all gained weight from having the delicious cakes and bread.

Service was outstanding - the staff was very helpful and worked through any language barriers. Wifi is only in the common areas and did not reach our room (we did not mind that). he owner Daniel was very helpful and always present in the mornings to answer any questions we had. He also arranged for horseback riding for us and told us of other activities like kayaking in the river.

I would recommend Mata N'ativa to fellow budget travelers who would like to be close to nature.

Lying in a hammock by pool watching monkeys and humming birds while sipping a passion fruit Caipirinha....bliss.
Mata N'Ativa is a set inside the forest, next to a small river. Beautifully designed with a real effort to blend in gives a feeling of tranquility lacking in so many other 'green' pousadas.
The owners are extremely knowledgeable about the wildlife and surrounding area.
The staff are wonderful and friendly and,trying to be brief, here's a list of the highlights....
-lovely pool for cooling off
-5 minutes walk from the Quadrado (beautiful centre square of Trancoso) so close but far enough to get peace when you need it, unlike some pousadas 'in town'. Need a torch at night or phone with light.
-bike and kayak trips (both recommended) leave from the pousada itself.
-massage spa
-5/10 minutes from the beach which has local and trendy options for bars
-good value
-wonderful fresh breakfast

Room Tip: higher floors have great hammock spot....don't miss the Capoeira

We stayed 4 nights at this "pousada". Our room was close to the kitchen, that is a problem, because in the morning the breakfast preparation causes a lot of noisy. Also the rooms are not well cleaned, so you can feel some bad smell sometimes. And since it is in a beach area inside a nice small forest, humidity is very high, so they should use some dehumidifier to improve the smell. Bed linen and towels also not so good. The best part is he nice breakfast.

We stayed at Mata N'ativa on our honeymoon in march 2013 and had a wonderful time. The highlights were the proximity to nature, the beautiful tropical garden, the friendly staff and the delicious breakfasts. Over breakfast we could see hummingbirds and monkeys nearby. The holiday was the perfect mix of relaxation and activities. Daniel is an amazing host and was very helpful. The room was very comfortable with lovely touches like fresh flowers and quality soaps and shampoos. It was also great to be able to borrow dvds and watch them from bed. We would highly recommend Mata N'ativa.
