Comfortable and clean, great atmosphere and host. Breakfast is wonderful, with a harbour view. Close to hikes, town and the best food on the island. Host Gerard was gracious, knowledgable and had great ideas in where to visit and how to get to Lopez Mendez

Gerarde took us in when we had nowhere else to stay. The place is seated perfectly on the beach. Gerarde is a funny character and he and his family serves the best breakfast on the island with great pastries and at least eight different types of fruit. The rooms are lofty and clean with a balcony, including hammock, overlooking the... More

We stayed in Ilha Grande for six days. Manaca is a small pousada, whose garden gate is five meters from the water. It has rather small but very neat rooms with all the comfort you need in a place like the island. Gerard, the owner is a French man, that lives in Brazil for several decades, knows and loves the...

Nice location - just on the beach. I´d recommend to take the room on the upper floor faced the sea. Little difference in price but huge one in perception. Very good breakfast, including a lot of fruit and fresh. The host - Jerard is very amiable and gives a lot of useful advice (I can´t say it about local young... More

We loved staying here, the rooms are clean and the owner is friendly. The breakfast is the tastiest breakfast we have had, they make you fresh juice and cook fresh eggs to your liking. We would recommend paying a bit extra for the sea view. Can't wait to come back and stay here again! Great value for what you get:)

Very nice pousada right on the beach. The owner is very nice and made us feel welcome. Not a big fan of Ilha Grande after our visit, but highly recommend staying here. Very good breakfast and comfortable rooms

Gerard was a wonderful host, he gave us great tips on Ilha Grande and even knows an affordable taxi service that can come pick you up in Rio down to the boat, and vice versa. His b&b has a lot of character, is quiet and is conveniently located right on the beach, steps away from the main town. Breakfast in... More

Breakfast was wonderful - the selection and the view across the beach & the sea! We even saw a hummingbird one day. The Island is beautiful. The pousada itself was spot on, it's owner & staff were friendly and very helpful (including local advice). The pousada is slightly further along the beach away from the busier part of the main...

Nice place with a very good situation in front of the sea, directly on the beach, but not in the noisy part of vila do abraao. The best breakfast we ate in Brazil... Very nice owner, full of advises...
