Great location on Ilhabela, this small hotel is a gem with beautiful landscaping throughout. Every room offers spectacular ocean views. We stayed in the Room 19 which has a patio like all the rooms but also has its own private swimming pool. The room was beautifully decorated from the sitting area to the bedroom to the patio. Cleanliness was excellent. The shower and bathroom (and supply hot water) were very good. The room even had a hammock to relax in! The hotel pool is very nice with full sun throughout the day. The hotel is built into the hillside so be aware in case you have difficulty with stairs/climbing.
The included breakfast was fantastic with a nice selection of fruits, pastries and the specialty Ovo Joly (egg on toast). No bar or restaurant available for lunch or dinner though. But there are plenty of choices a short walk into Centro.
But no doubt the highlight is the service you receive from the friendly staff. The staff offered additional towels for the pool or for our trip to the beach without our asking . At the invitation of the owner, we sat in on the private rehearsal of the band that was performing that night in town square in Centro. Beach and restaurant recommendations from the front desk were excellent.
A wonderful hotel not to be missed if you staying on Ilhabela!
