This hotel was one of the highlights of our month long trip around South America. We stayed for a week over Christmas and we couldn't have expected a more special Christmas! From the moment we arrived Nelson couldn't do enough to help us or look after us, he talked us through the resort and the surrounding area, which was hugely... More

We had a delayed arrival due to unprecedented tourist volumes on the coast on that weekend. That all changed from the minute we arrived. Nelson introduced us to the lodge and how it worked after a welcome dinner in a fantastic setting - that set the tone. What followed was three days of bliss. There is plenty to do on... More

We absolutely loved this place. Especially coming from Rio after the New Years week - it was the perfect break. Right away after getting off the boat we met Nelson, who made us feel very at home and let us know the best things to do on the island. There are kayaks available to get to the blue lagoon for...

There are many places in the world that could be described saying: beautiful venue, built in perfect harmony with nature, very nice beach, a high - yet informal - level of service, and awesome food and drinks. But this is definitely not enough for Estrela da Ilha. What makes it so special are the people managing it and working here.... More

This review is hard because the place itself is a 5 rating. The relaxation is a 5 rating. This place has the bones to be excellent. They have an identity problem. They want to be a yoga retreat, which we thought it was but we learned they separate the yoga from the posada. I bring this up because the food... More
