Very much an authentic Ilha Grande pousada — a charming little compound just off of the pier in the center of town — that is also comfortable, safe, and clean. The rooms are nothing fancy, but serviceable; the beds are a bit hard. Many rooms face into nice little courtyards with benches good for reading; some guests did yoga there....

The breakfast here was the best we experienced anywhere. The rooms were clean, had a nice balcony, and a view of the sea. This place is pretty much on the beach. Anywhere is a good location here because everything is walking distance. The WiFi in the Pousada was poor at best and worked sporadically in the reception area. Staff were...

We had a wonderful experience. Our room was spacious, we got excellent advice from everyone that worked there and they were always available to answer our questions. The hostel was perfectly situated on the beach in the center of the action of town but was also quiet. We met wonderful people staying there and wouldn't have wanted to be anywhere...

Just needed a clean place to stay. It has a decent breakfast. Wifi was spotty, only really works near front desk. We paid about $150 US a night. Front desk was friendly and have good recommendations in town. Just book it and have no worries.

Adorable place, tucked behind a small walkway off the main road. This keeps it quiet, and private, while being literally seconds from anything on the main street. Very nice and comfortable rooms. Literally my *only* complaint is the WiFi is only really accessible from the lobby, which you get to share with the Pousada's super chill cat who sits in...

The Pousada Tropicana was a great place to stay while on Ilha Grande. The price was fair and the room was great. The only downside of the place was that no one was at the desk from 1pm-2:15pm to check in. Other than that, it was a nice place and a nice end to my trip in Brazil.

Excellent location, right by the beach, near to restaurants, grocery stores, travel agencies and the docks. The staff is very helpful and did their best to meet the requests I made in the reservation form. They also had great tips for short trips in the island and offered discounts for a travel agency next to the hotel. In the outdoor...

Location: The pousada is right by the beach and is within one minute walking distance to the pier (which is where the majority of the boats depart). There are a couple of grocery stores nearby. Rooms: The rooms are located at the back of the pousada so it is quiet. The room is cleaned and the towels are changed everyday...

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
