We received lots of requests for Fernando de Noronha packages every day.
One of the questions is about swimming in the lodges. Some people believes that is essential and only accept inns that offer this amenity. But is it really worth it?
Fernando de Noronha is an island with a limited infrastructure, a reduced load capacity and deserves great care by everybody.
The issue of swimming in the lodges is a delicate point. Noronha suffers every year with a lack of water in the dry season and with all this climate change, it is even harder to say... When is the dry season on the island ???
It is usually in the summer, between November and February, but we have already seen problems with water in other months.
In fact, I have written in previous posts about the best time to visit Fernando de Noronha. If you have not read it, it's worth taking a few
minutes. It will help you a lot to plan your trip.
The economy inns that own the swimming pool suffer a lot and have great difficulty in being able to give adequate maintenance. These lodges have fiber pools, small, which generally serve more to relax at the end of the day after the long adventures on the island. It's not that resort pool with toboggan and sun loungers as common in the Caribbean islands.
See below the list of economy and superior accommodations with pool in Fernando de Noronha:
Economy and Superior
Whenever we receive the question about the swimming pool in the inn, we like to make it clear that, even if there is, it is not always possible to use.
Precisely because of the problem of lack of water on the island, generating the lack of proper maintenance.
Luxury lodges, for the most part, have better pools, some of them are
infinity pools, and you feel like diving just by looking at it. Those options has a more careful maintenance and even in time of water crisis in the island, they manage to maintain a service of first and to satisfy to the most demanding public.

If you are travelling with kids, the pool, doesn´t matter of fiber and small or a infinity pool, can be a differential. Kids will not care much if it's a super pool, they just want to have fun. By the way, I wrote a recent post about taking children to Fernando de Noronha. If it's still in doubt, it's worth reading.
So, from our point of view, if you do not want to spend a lot on lodging, forget the pool. Sometimes you may end up opting for a place with pool, but getting there, you will not be able to enjoy it as you would like.
In addition, Fernando de Noronha already has so many attractions and the most beautiful beaches in the country, there is not much time left to enjoy the pool. In general you spend more time walking, swimming and enjoying nature than inside your inn.
