This pousada definitely cannot be beaten on location - perfectly situated right by the pier and so close to all restaurants and shops. Rooms were nice and clean even if fairly basic. We found the owners to be really welcoming and helpful. However, we did book a boat trip through them which turned out to be completely in Portuguese (it... More

We stayed there for few days and we were honestly glad about the choice we made. The pousada sits in the best location of Vila Abraao. The owners, a young Brazilian couple, were helpful in arranging boat taxi, laundry, snorkling material to rent, tranfers and good places to eat. The rooms are cozy, very comfortable bed, delicious breakfast. We really... More

I loved staying at this Inn (pousada). It has the best location because it is right at the center of the town and near where the boats drop/pick-up people for tours or to get on/off the island. The staff was so nice and extremely helpful, they provided great recommendations for places to eat and things to do. Additionally, they spoke... More

I strongly recommend this pousada. It is clean and the staff very helpful (who by the way speak English, French, etc.). On top of that, it is located at the heart Abraao and is 10 feet from the beach.

A very pleasant and convenient trip here. Comfortable, pleasant surroundings, very nice breakfast and recommended as a bolthole for the inevitable rain - after all most of the island is rainforest. Stayed elsewhere last time as this one was full - that meant a 10-minute walk, enough to drench anyone. No complaints on this one.

It's located on the main street so you have easy access to different places. The staff is friendly and very helpfull. The only problem is that the... More

We stayed here for 3 nights during a recent trip to Brazil and were very happy with this pousada. The room was lovely and really nicely decorated with a really good shower, fridge and TV. Only complaint is that the walls are paper thin - we could here the man next door snoring! Location is great - right on the... More

This Pousada was a great finding. We were actually reading the review of another hotel where the reviewer stated that his pousada was nice, but a much better place to stay should be the Pousada Solar da Praia for its location, its beautiful façade, a well served breakfast and espeacially the good price. We finally spent two days there and... More

When in Ilha Grande we encountered a bit of a problem in the pousada I have booked in advance and as there was no one to sort it out straight that night we had to look for a different accommodation at around 10pm. Thank God it was Thursday and thank him again there was this very nice and helpful long... More
