We stayed here for 3 nights and we loved it. The breakfast is delicious, fresh orange juice and eggs made to order along with lots of other options. The staff are really helpful and friendly despite the fact we didn't speak any Portuguese really and they were very patient! My tip would be to spend a little extra and choose... More

This is a very nice Pousada on the beach in Ilha Grande. The breakfast is excellent and way better than most. Gerard, the French Owner, is always on hand to help and offer advice. He is a character, very funny and speaks many languages. We stayed in room 3 which l think has the best balcony on the upper flor.... More

My husband and I left immediately after the first night stay of a booking of 3 nights. We were in room #3. There is no doubt the pousada has a problem. His arms were covered with bedbug bites and the sheets had the small blood droplets. We were with another couple that stayed in room #1. They had just a... More

This was a really nice place to stay. Our room was clean and comfortable, and there was an outdoor area too where you can chill out and read / lie in a hammock. It is right on the beach so sitting outside for breakfast is blissful. Breakfast was excellent with fresh fruit juice, lots of fresh fruit, and plenty of... More

I booked Pousada Manaca after reading lots of positive reviews on Trip Advisor and details from Lonely Planet. The Pousada is located just to the left of the main pier and only takes about 5 minutes to reach, it is located on the beach front and away from the main bars/restaurants (nosier ones) so for me and my partner this...

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...
