We stayed in Manaca for 3 nights and I can truly say that this was the best choice we could make. Gerard, the owner is a really nice, funny, old-fashioned gentleman who makes fresh juice every morning for every guest. He is very proud of his fruit salad, which was amazing indeed. It containes at least 10 different type of... More

We enjoyed our stay at Pousada Manaca, which has very comfortable rooms and an excellent breakfast. There is free WiFi. Credit/debit cards accepted. There is a laundry service which we used. We had a beach-front room and spent a lot of time in the hammock...

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
