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.

I was there for 3 nights. The room is nicely decorated. It has airconditioning, TV , fan ceiling and mini bar where you can keep the things you buy.They serve a good breakfast. 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

We almost didn't stay in this pousada, because of not so good reviews, but we are glad we did. The pousada is beautiful, and the location is perfect. In front of the ocean and close to everything. The room was great, and very clean. The staff was sweet and Eliana, the owner, was super nice and helpful. The bfast is... More

Primo location...right on the main beach in the exact middle of town. Rooms and breakfast were average. The one thing that stands out is how lousy the service and attitude was. ...OK..I'm fluent in Portuguese, and my wife is from Brazil; so language is not an issue. Every single question we asked was responded with a frown, and " I... More
