This pousada's location was so convenient; it was not too far from the dock and it was right across the street from the water. The rooms were nice, clean and cozy but the beds were a bit stiff. After a long day of activities, once you laid on the bed the stiffness was easily forgotten. The pool area was nice...

This place is located right on the beach, allowing you to leave your room and already be where you want to be :) Centrally located to the main roads and boat pier as well. The rooms are a tad small but clean, with nice bathrooms. The breakfast here was great, and it was a great place to start my Brazilian...

Pousada Recreio de Praia is wonderfully situated by the beach and the pier. Its rooms are quite comfortable and spacious for three people. The pousada has a recreational space for its visitors to play billiards as well as other games. There is also a pool inside the pousada, but it was rather small and honestly, during my stay, most of...

A wonderful location. We shall never forget the breakfasts on the terrace gazing out toward the sea 5 metres away and the distant mountains and islands. The room was very small (no space for a chest of drawers and only a very small single wardrobe, but the Bathroom was clean and tidy. Free wifi in rooms and reception, slow speed...

We weren't planning on staying on Ilha Grande. We were on a 2-day sailing trip with friends, and my partner got violently sea sick, so we decided to get off the boat when we got to the island. At about 10:30 PM. The first few pousadas we tried were either closed, or not interested in putting us up for the...

Was traveling with my wife during Christmas time. We were lucky to find a room without any reservation but obviously had to pay a hefty price for it. The rooms were very basic but neat and clean. Overall, it was worth it because of its location.

The Pousada is located directly at the beach and 2 mins walk from the main piers. Everything you need on the island is max. 5 mins walk from the hotel. Rooms are spacious and equipped with a safe and fridge. The bathroom needed a renovation. Breakfast is rather basic with limited choice.

Really good value for money and great customer service. Only issue we had was that they started repairing the pool during our stay, but they gave a us a discount for the inconviniance. Personel was really friendly and provide us with valuable advise on what to do and where to eat. The place is well located, close to the main...

The best place in Abraao from what I could see. Right at the seafront but still in the back to avoid the noise (well, except for the church "bells" but they only announce the hour at decent times not during the night or morning). It's a few steps from the dock (and the path up to it is suitable for...

We were here for 4 days with our 3 children. This is an island where luxury cannot be expected. The nature is the real attraction! However this pousada has a working wifi, a pool and a playroom (basic, but the children enjoyed this). The location is great. We arrived at night and we were very close to the dock, so...
