Pousada do Zé María
Island centre (Fernando de Noronha, Brazil)
In the centre of the island, with views to the Pico de Morro rock and the Atlantic ocean beyond. The restaurant is excellent with a wide selection of wine. In the centre of the complex is a lovely drop-away pool.
The easiest way to get around is either hire a buggy or use the island’s buggy taxi service. There is a small shop in Zé María's old house where island tours can be booked and buggies booked.
20 attractive tiled bungalows (2 large rooms per unit) each with a large veranda, air conditioning, TV and hot water. Those is the deluxe category are slightly larger with just one room per unit and have a jacuzzi on the veranda. There are also several apartments (cheaper but no veranda).
One of the most comfortable pousadas on the island - really more of an hotel. The Italian restaurant of Pousada da Morena is a 2 minute walk away.
When to go
Year round. It is almost impossible to get space during national holidays unless you book months ahead.
Client comments and reviews
A wonderful place and the staff were very helpful. It is good for guests to know that they have late night music Wednesday and Saturday when they have their buffet evening. - JK (August 2019)
