A hotel review of Pousada Del Mares in Fernando de Noronha as I promised the owner I’d make….I searched online for quite a while, looking for some reasonably priced accommodation in Fernando de Noronha but just couldn’t find any. All the accommodation in Fernando de Noronha is overpriced by a factor of two or three. The cheapest Pousada I could find online was Pousada del Mares (about R$ 160 a night), where we stayed.
Pousada del Mares is a small five room bed and breakfast well located in Vila dos Remedios. Rooms are air conditioned, clean and reasonably sized, the bathrooms spacious and stylish and drinking water and internet are provided for free. The buffet breakfast was tasty, large, and assorted, though the juices poor.
Pousada Del Mares has an ideal location in the centre of the quiet village of Vila dos Remedios, which is essentially the focal point of the island. There’s various restaurants to choose from nearby, and the village provides easy-ish walking access to the islands most beautiful beaches on the North coast.
So Pousada del Mares gets a thumbs up. It was the cheapest Pousada I could find with an online presence - meaning I could pre-book it. And it was cheapest by quite a long way. Still, it was thoroughly over-priced - a similar pousada on Brazil’s mainland would cost about a third as much. As you don’t get what you pay for in Fernando de Noronha, there’s little point in splashing out on any expensive pousadas which are equally overpriced - so that makes Pousada del Mar a good option on the island.
