Pousada is pleasant and well located. Offers a good breakfast and has a crepe restaurant at the end of the day. The only two inconveniences that I found were the fact that the restaurant does not allow you to charge costs on the room and WIFI practically non-existent further from the reception area. On the other hand, the latter was... More

The pousada is located on the beach right where the flexi boat arrives from Angra Do Reis, so it's very well positioned. We were given the room on top of first floor right at above the reception. The room was pretty small, and not super clean. There were traces of all the previous mosquitos killings on the wall. Breakfast was... More

Fantastic location, right on the beach and in the heart of Abraao. Reasonably priced, rooms are on the smaller side but ours had a private bathroom with hot shower (and cold, which was used more given the heat). AC didn't work so great in our room but was sufficient. Lovely garden surroundings and fairly sizeable breakfasts provided. The pousada also... More

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
