The rooms are hygienic. Shower is spacious and clean. The breakfast was very good with a lot of fresh fruit, eggs, different cakes and fresh orange juice (!). The wifi is just plain bad: only one guest per room can log in and it's extremely slow. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It's location is on the main road... More

Great location, very clean and a really nice breakfast- what more could you want? This was my base for exploring the island and doing hikes and walks everyday I really enjoyed it. Staff were friendly and flexible with my check out. The pool was nice and there were some lovely places to eat just a stone throw from the front... More

The location was perfect and the staff was very friendly. The hotel accommodations were simple, but we had everything we needed. Good breakfast. We would certainly highly recommend this Pousada! Enjoy the island. It is beautiful!

My family stayed here for 6 nights in July and LOVED every minute of it! The location was perfect and the staff was very friendly.

We would certainly highly recommend this Pousada! Enjoy... More

The location is undeniably great ! 3 minutes walk from the main jetty. The Pousada is however disappointing. A family room 1 double, a single and a pull out bed had insufficient storage for one person let alone 4! Our air conditioning dripped ( necessitating a room change at 10-30pm) and although "fixed" dripped again on two consecutive nights. The... More

The Pousada is in a perfect location in the centre of town. The rooms were basic but contained all the necessary amenities. The gardens were lovely and well kept. Its true that the staff are not overly friendly - for example information regarding breakfast, the safe, using adaptors was not explained to us like it usually is on check in.... More

We booked last minute for our hotel in Ilha Grande. It was a splurge, over our budget, but when you book late in the already bustling holiday season, we can't complain. The location of this hotel is great! Right on the main street facing the beach. Upon arrival we met Eric at the reception desk, who was super friendly and... More

Ilha Grande is a magical place, but this pousada made our vacation seems like a nightmare! Completely not professional managers, poor service, poor quality of the accommodation and you have to solve the problems they give you by yourself. To list what went wrong: 1) they charged us for the stay with 1 month in advance, without any warning. Our... More

The hotel has a great environment, the location is incredible (close to restaurants and a few meters from the port), and staff is very friendly. Rooms have a great size, with hangers, silent a/c, a ceiling fan, and a oversized bed, that could be a little softer. Common areas were also great with a steam sauna, a fair pool and... More
