We had an absolutely amazing experience during our 3-night stay at Estrela da Ilha. We arrived on the island via a boat provided by the pousada. From when we arrived on the island until our departure, the hospitality provided by hosts Nelson and Cris along with their staff was outstanding. The pousada is located on a secluded part of Ilha...

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. Honestly, this place has something magic. The premises are top and even if you are literally in the middle of the jungle,... More

Chris and Nelson were excellent hosts and made us feel very welcome and safe at their beautifully located pousada, which is both secluded and calm. Nature surrounds the pousada and this is really one of the most attractive features of the place, and coming from Norway, we were absolutely fascinated by the exotic location, and really enjoyed being totally secluded...

The new managers are very helpful and friendly and do their very best to accommodate your every requests. From the very beginning we were equipped with very accurate instructions about how, when and where to arrive to the island.

The pousada has a terrific location very close to the blue lagoon - you can rent kayaks and go there on your own in 10 minutes. It is really worth exploring the islands and waters surrounding this beautiful place. There are two wonderful beaches in the area, just minutes away if you go kayaking. New friendly owners from Argentina/Uruguay make... More

a nice resort, overall we had a very nice stay. the staff is very kind and the do their best to accommodate every request. maybe slightly overpriced, especially for the quality of the food and the not always reliable transportation to and from the lodge. anyway we had a very nice holiday and we can't complain at all.

We arrived in Ilha Grande after a few days in Paraty. We got picked up from the port without too much difficulty and taken over to the Pousada. We were greeted with a caipirinha by the very welcoming staff which was great given the soaring temperatures. The rooms were quite simple but clean with an 'eco' feel. Our room had... More

We were really excited about visiting this eco-lodge. The reviews seemed excellent and Sergio in their booking office was incredibly helpful. From the photos it looked like there was a great yoga studio, private beach and hammocks to relax in and read a book. Unfortunately it really didn't live up to our expectations. The place felt a little bit unloved.... More

Everything was amazing! even before getting there, Sergio was so nice to answer right away every one of my questions (and i had many!), he was really kind even giving me suggestions of how to get to Angra Dos Reis and where to park the car.
