The Island is gorgeous but not this resort/place! As another person said - maybe this place was nice at some point but not anymore. Dirty, the room was not up to par, shelves were broken, mold on the pillows, dirty and ripped sheets. The sink is a sea shell - it accumulates dirty water, absolutely disgusting. Toilet ran 24/7, seat... More

We stayed at Grajagan Surf Resort in January 2015. It was not a great experience for us. The hotel is definitely overpriced. We cough two raining days at the island and guess what?!? The water was getting inside our room. This was not the only problem. With almost 100 degrees outside and humidity and the ac stopped working. We requested... More

This was clearly once a lovely resort, and still has a lot of charm - but it seems a bit faded and tatty these days. Food offerings are very limited but the main issue is with the accommodation. Rooms are not clean, sheets are spotted and old, and the common areas are just not very comfortable when the weather is... More

This resort was really the place we needed on this Island. Keep in mind: they do not have cars and that means no taxi's... Upon arriving (boattrip from Paranaguá took 1,30h) it looked like a paradise, and it really is a small paradise! Very friendly people! We left our luggage in a hotel in Paranaguá and took our handluggage. They... More

The Grajagan is located on Praia Grande on lovely Ilha do Mel, a must go place when you are in Curitiba. It is definitely among the best pousada's on the island and because of the location very remote and silent. Service varies, depending whom they have currently hired. Be careful not to pick a room to close to the bar,... More

Beautiful island, no motorized vehicles! Nice little resort, extremely friendly staff. Location very good (on the beach). Take mosquito repellent, nature is beautiful, lots of water, and the morsuitos like that too! Beautiful waves for surf /body boards.

And the location is great! But what really pulled down was the lack of proper food: When you're by the ocean you certainly do not expect to eat pizza for two nights in a row... It was either that or pasta. No seafood. No coffee at night (but somehow they managed to find some for us, the staff was fabulous!).... More

We had a really hard time trying to decide where to stay on Ilha do Mel but finally settled on the Grajagan Surf Resort because we thought it would be the most romantic. First the positives, the location is awesome and can't be beat on the island (quiet and peaceful), the beach is only a few steps away and there... More
