The hotel has a great structure and is well located but, there is a crucial point against it: the owner! I just got back from my sixth stay here, the latter being a stay of a week and a half and, as always, the face of dislike and disgust of the owner marked my entire stay! An extremely arrogant and...

Overall the people here are very nice, the language barrier is a challenge. They use google translate though which is smart and does the trick. The first room we checked into had tons of little ants crawling all over the beds. We told the front desk and they gave us a new room. The rooms are basic, but comfortable beds,...

This pousada is perfectly located in the main town on Ilha Grande, it is right on the beach front from where you can find some great restaurants and book any trip you need. The room was very nice and the bathroom was ok. The receptionist didn't speak the best English so sometimes to get information was a little challenging. The...

I travelled to Ilha Grande with my family and we chose this B&B and we did not regret. It is located in front of the main beach where you can book trips to different parts of the island. There are many restaurants around, but many of them were quite expensive. The structure of the hotel is great. There is a...

The hotel is perfectly located on the main street of Ilha Grande. The rooms were nice but very simple. The hotel's set-up have the rooms set back from the main street, so the place was quiet despite its central location. Breakfast was excellent. Staff was helpful, including after our stay when we realized we had left something in one of...

We stayed here on the recommendation of some Brazilian friends. We regretted that decision about an hour into our stay. Pros: good location to shops and restaurants, the English speaking receptionist was lovely, breakfast was ok. Cons: Room wasn't clean, numerous hairs throughout the bathroom and a bad smell in the room. All other staff sullen and poor mannered, when...

I recently stayed here with a group from my school and had a very good experience. The pousada was what we needed- nothing fancy but was perfect for us. The buffet breakfast was very good and the staff were all very friendly. The location is excellent as it is on the beach front. The only bad thing was that the...

The best place during our trip in Brazil during June-July 2014 (on budget). Location perfect. Baby room with micro etc. in the hotel area. Nice pool and play area next to that. And this hotel/pousada accommodates families with children. Nice room and air condition + fan. Helpful staff. Bathroom ok. Breakfast and breakfast interior really nice. Baby bed available as...

We arrived in Ilha Grande and loved it from the moment we stepped off the boat. It is absolutely stunning with clear water, rain forest covered hills and soft sandy beaches. The Pousada itself is in an excellent location, just 2-3 minutes walk from the pier and we found our room spotless, basic and comfortable. Everything we wanted. There is...
