We've been there for 3 nights and it was just perfect, if not a little too short. The pousada has the perfect location for Abraao, right on the beach, the rooms are quite big and comfortable andthe common area just gorgeous

The location is amazing. Right on the main street where the beach is, with lots of dining options close by. We had read lots of reviews about the staff and generally take those with a grain of salt, but they definitely were accurate. Don't expect any staff to help you or answer your questions. A bit surprising considering how much... More

This pousada is very close to the pier where the boats arrive and depart and it is by the sea. Agua Viva have their own boat as well for tour to visit the many beaches on the island. Service is nearly non-existent if you don't ask for it but their breakfasts are generous, the prices excellent and the number of... More

I stayed here in early March after leaving brazil, we spent a wonderful couple of days in Parathy, where everyone was absolutly amazing and so so polite, we arrived onto Ilha Grande in the most horrific rain, The owner of the Pousada was really rude to us from the start, so much so he would not even say good morning...

Like other travellers wrote, this island is wild and beautiful. The only car on the island belongs to the police, and there are just a few streets, it's not a fashion and comercial place like Buzios, its a hideway, it's great if you want to get away from it all. This pousada is very simple, but with a good location,... More

I had read reviews on other sites before choosing this pousada and was a little disappointed when we saw our room. It was very basic, but surprising quiet at night. Didn't think the place had much atmosphere, it provides free internet access but this wasn't working while we were there..not really a problem as plenty of internet places in the... More
