Lovely setting, just off the Ocean in Abraao, lush garden, friendly and helpful owner and breakfast view an Ocean view. What else you need? Well, it could be repainted that is true, but overall it was clean and a great choice. Also value that this place has a differentiated pricing for single travelers (so you don't have to pay the...

The hotel needs a drastic renovation, especially the bathrooms and the breakfast room. The entrance is quite disappointing, the internet doesn't really work, if it rains (what can happen quite often and for many hours) you will not have electricity since this hotel is not provided with a generator, as some other hotels around do. The staff is nice but... More

Stayed here in August. Really small but very hospitable, nice staff and owner. Rooms tiny and basic but all you need. Internet does not really work well. Beautiful small garden and decorations. Super breakfast.

Reasonal price and clean rooms. Shower not always the warmest but still ok. Rooms a bit smallish. Staff was extremely helpfull, the atmosphere was nice and the location was just excellent. The breakfast was really good, especially if you like fruits like I do.

We had booked 4 nights at Pousada Tropicana but stayed 6. The staff know the island and surrounding area like the back of their hands and will spend time with you to help you plan your time on Ilha Grande which has much to see. The rooms are basic but clean and comfortable and not without their charms. The breakfast... More

I think this place is perfect for couples and families who want to stay a few days in Ilha Grande. This pousada is located right in front of the beach of Abraão (beautiful breakfasts at the hotel restaurant looking at Abraão’s bay). Our bedroom was clean and nice. The staff was very helpful. What else can you ask for? Well,... 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
