This pousada is very well located, has a nice breakfast, rooms are clean, with nice bathrooms, and staff was always nice and helpful. We stayed there for a week and it was very much worth it!

The hotel is ok, the room was clean, it had a nice restaurant. Location just were you want it. However I am sure there were other places having more modern rooms. Don't look to much in to location since the little village is small and nothing is far. I would probably try another place next time.

Ilha Grande is only about 4hrs from Rio and a great place to chill after what had been a strenuous couple of weeks charging across South America. The Tropicana is a lovely place, great setting facing the sea, small sub-tropical garden, lovely outdoor restaurant and comfortable bedrooms. Only marked down due to strange heating shower head which had too many...

I stayed in Pousada Tropicana twice. The first time in January 2010 with my boyfriend. We had a lovely time. The location is great: you enjoy a good, fresh and abundant breakfast right at the seaside! The rooms are clean and comfortable. No strange smells, not moistly. You can relax in the hammocks in the garden. Everything looks so nice....

Hi, I stayed 3 nights in november in this place. The bedroom is nice with 1 double and 1 single bed and costs 130 reals. The food is excellent and very diversified (Tbone, lobster, fish), around 30-35 reals, they also have crepes, and soon waffels. Its located 100 feet from the pier, in the center. Also Gerard and his team...

If you like poor service, and mattresses from 40 years ago this is the place to stay. Ilha grande is wonderful, but walk on by this pig-pen of a pousada.

1st - ilha grande standards are different than other places. I have been there several times and understand that a simple room that's clean is a great thing. Having said that; this place falls way below expectations. - owners; while nice; had their kids overrunning the place. kids toys thrown around like a trailer park. and running all over the...

Just back from a 4 night stay at Pousada Tropicana. It was a great place to stay! My room was nice, clean, and very comfortable. There was TV, AC, mini fridge,safe box, and a hot shower in the room. There is a computer in the small library for guests to use. Alisa, the front desk manager, spoke English and was...

We stayed there 2 nights and we were pretty well welcomed by the staff and by the French owner Gérard. At the beginning, he is a bit distant but when you get to know him better he is really nice to chat with and to drink a good caïpirinha. The rooms are really clean and nice for the price and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Pousada Tropicana opened in 1989 and was one of the first. Located beachside of Abraão in the center of the island's main village, the Pousada Tropicana offers you the opportunity to dive in clear waters, take a relaxing walk, breathe the pure air of the woods, or else make the true adventures trails. If you are still not satisfied, you may chill in the sand with a drink, eating fried shrimp. All to the accompaniment of experienced guides. ... more   less
