we stayed 4 nights in this Pousada - I rather would call it Lodge - at the Ilha, and it was just amazing. Nelson and Chris make you feel as if this where your home, taking excellent care of their guests, but in a very natural, laid back way. Food is of highest quality, really excellent, taking into account all... More

Estrela da Ilha is a very interesting place. The hotel is very nicely built, rooms are spacious with all amenities and the one we stayed on overlooked the ocean. If you are tall, beds are small but it is not different from other hotels in Brazil. The Hotel is new age with Sauna, Yoga Classes,....Cooking is traditional and delicious (breakfast,... More

We had a wonderful and relaxing time at Estrela da Ilha. Pictures don't do justice to the location: a serene place where you feel you can truly switch off and re-charge your batteries. We have seen other pousadas on the island but there was no comparison. Nelson and Chris' hospitality was great and we were given lots of tips on... More

We had a great time in "Estrela da Ilha" pousada. It was actually sad to leave the island after 4 beautiful days. The natural beauty is superb, and the service simply fantastic. We just want to go back.

We spent four days here earlier this month. What a beautiful hideaway, on its own beach. We stayed in one of the Estela suites - huge and beautifully furnished and great bathroom. Although I wasn't in the room much, just to sleep and it was the best I had slept for months, with the huge windows and doors open to... More

The week we stayed at Estrela da Ilha was perfect. Nelson and the staff were excellent and the accommodation was top quality. This is a beautiful spot to relax and unwind away from the more touristy parts of the island. The food is excellent and the atmosphere is pure relaxation - never more than 6 people on the beach.

don t understand other guests when say "fantastic!" and do not give 5 stars ..if u are not happy and overwelmed here then you are the kind of person that is trying to find the little "buts" anywhere.
