Location - couldn't be better: right on the beach, a 5 minute walk from the centre of the charming little village of Abraao. Service - friendly without being intrusive; the staff were respectful, flexible to our requests and (contrary to some other reviews) spoke surprisingly good English, at least the staff member who welcomed us. Breakfast - a limited selection... More

The location and breakfast were very good. The afternoon tea was also a nice touch. Rooms clean with a good shower. Staff were friendly but some spoke little English so be sure to brush up on your Portuguese. The main town/pier is a 5/10 minute stroll along the beach. The cafe mar bar just along from the hotel do an... More

Beautiful beach view room in good location. Would recommend hiking to Lopes Mendes beach one way and getting a water taxi back, if you can handle a moderate hike. Loved the afternoon tea and coffee provided every day, including a great breakfast. Would love to come back in 5 years time to see Brazil practicing better recycling methods, lack there... More

In reviewing this Pousada, I recognise that this establishment has a lot going for it & I would recommend without hesitation but for one omission, which I will come to later. The Pousada, can accommodate up to 20 guests, sits directly on the sand in a quiet area some 10 - 15 mins walk from the quayside. Our room -... More

Caicara pousada is one of the best places to stay. In Ilha Grande there are not All Inclusive places to stay. Normally the pousadas offers rooms and breakfast only. So, if you want to go to the beach or to have lunch, you have to start walking. There are dozens of beaches and several very good restaurants. But you have... More

We had a nice stay on the beach in Caicara. Breakfast was fantastic, fresh fruit and baked cakes. Staff speaks Spanish but no English, very helpful and nice. Good location on the beach, without too much noise. We went in low season, could change in Jan or Feb.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the pousada for 2 nights. If you are planning to come to Ilha Grande, Pousada Caicara is the place to stay! It is located directly on the beach and a short (less than 5 minute) walk from the boat dock and the village of Abraao. Yes, the staff do not speak English but that... More

We spent 3 days in the pousada and really enjoyed it. Staff was friendly and helpful, but speaking Portuguese will be an advantage (since few speak English or Spanish). The location is perfect, right on the beach (the pousada provide beach towels) and a short walk from town, which also makes it a nice and quiet place. The room was... More

This pousada is well located, right on the beach, about 10min walk to the village of abraao. It is relatively new, simple, but with good taste. The best rooms are the front ones with sea view, all have air cond, tv, safe and private bathroom. People are very attentive and helpful. Highly recommended and good value for its price. They...

We stayed here with Imagine Latin America. This place is right on the beach and is just amazing! Great room, friendly staff and amazing breakfasts. They also serve afternoon tea. Location wise, it is just down the beach from a few restaurants/bars and a 10min stroll to the main pier. Fantastic stay.
