One of the most beautiful vacations we had, And staying at Mara E Claude pousada had a lot to do with that.
Claude is wonderful! Great man, and very helpful.
We took the room with see view which was extremely beautiful.
Waking and sleeping to the sound of the quiet sea.
The room was nice and warm.
The breakfast was good and unique. And the place well designed and lovely.
The location is great!

We enjoyed every minute there and wished we could stay longer.

We recommend everyone who visit Ilha grande to stay there.

Thanks Claude for a unique vacation.

This cute guesthouse is located directly on the beach. I was staying alone, so was given a small room towards the back of the building. Nevertheless it was comfortable.
Mara e Claude are hospitable and friendly. The guesthouse has a breakfast area overlooking the beach. It's such a lovely way to start your day.
I'm hoping I will get a chance to go to Ilha Grande again and would like to stay at this Pousada.

Lovely clean Pousada/B&B right on the beach. Claude is an entertaining French man who with his wife own and run this beautiful place.

Location is excellent, a couple of minutes walk along the beach from the center of town. Breakfast was good, with the best orange/mango/pineapple juice I think Ive ever had....

Our room at the front overlooked the sea and the many boats moored there. We had a balcony with a hammock which my 10 year old thoroughly enjoyed.

We don't speak Portuguese or French, but it did not matter. a few gestures, drawings and google translate sufficed!

Room Tip: The back rooms look lovely with a view over the garden and a partial sea view however I would try to get a front one, you cant beat being so close to the water!

We stayed here last year but wanted to definitely express what a great time we'd had. There were 3 of us travelling together so we booked two rooms. I booked over the phone from England and it was all smooth. I'd researched loads of places on Ilha Grande and was so glad I had chosen Mara e Claude. They were super-friendly. Rooms were simple but facing the ocean and in a quietish bit of the beach but close to bars and restaurants. What makes this place is the really helpful and warm approach by Mara and Claude and it makes it feel like a home from home.

Room Tip: Only stayed in an ocean-front room. DEFINITELY worth it
