Aratinga is not inexpensive but it is a slice of heaven on an island that makes you understand why the Portuguese thought they found paradise. I stayed in the Orchid room and it was clean and comfortable though I did wonder how it would work for two adults as it is a bit small. The breakfasts were amazing including fruits, juices, cheeses, meats, breads - some whole grains - home made cakes and even tomato and cucumbers which I saw nowhere else. I also never saw another afternoon tea in my travels in South America and having that fresh juice and choice between a sweet and a savory snack was a delight after a busy day. Yes, the location is a bit toward the edge of town and up a hill but to me that added to the place as it got me away from the noise of the Village of Abraao. Rennie had lots of good ideas about how to spend your days while there and lots of tips about where to eat. Since Rennie speaks English that was another plus for me. Fabulous soaps and shampoos were another plus; in my experience in Brasil, they are not always offered. I hope to go back to Ilha Grande and if I do, I will definitely stay at Aratinga again.
