My husband and I spent 3 nights at the Pousada Manaca Inn. The location was great as we were able to walk there easily from the ferry (about a 5 min walk). The room was very tidy and had a balcony facing the water. It was nice to have A/C during humid days. There are several restaurants close by that... More

That's because there are no cars on Ilha Grande. This Pousada is a very cozy place to stay while you explore the Ilha. Owned by a very friendly French gentleman with 38 years of island experience the Pousada is directly on Praia Abraão. It is a quick R$30 carteira legal ride from the dock in the village for your luggage... More

Pros and cons: Pros: Gerard, the owner, is a gem. Very helpful and kind. The breakfast is amazing. The location is great Cons: Extremely expensive for what you get. Didn't sleep through the night once because the bed is so insanely uncomfortable. New mattresses would fix that immediately. Worst WiFi connection. Just get used to the fact that they basically...

The owner and staff are fantastic - very friendly, willing to help and provide recommendations and super responsive. Location is good - beachfront and a little ways from the main area so it's a bit quieter. Rooms are small and just OK...but they have fans and air conditioning, and a mini-fridge. The electricity went out two of the nights we... More

We stayed at Pousada Manaca for 3 nights between Christmas and New Year's Eve. From the very beginning, Gerrard (owner) was very helpful. During the booking process, he was very responsive over email and communicated well in English. He even arranged a car for us from the airport which was very convenient. In fact, our luggage was lost in transit... More

Great place to stay. Located on the beach front, the rooms are clean, the owner is very friendly and makes you feel welcome. The breakfast is great. We had a garden view room which was fine for us but for a little extra you can get a sea view room... Would definitely recommend!

The pousada is in a good location on the beach not far from the ferry port. There are a couple of bars/restaurants next door which serve good food and the road into town is nearby. The rooms were spacious, clean and comfy. The receptionist did not speak English and this made checking in quite a lengthy affair but we got... More

My girlfriend and I stayed in Manaca for three nights in early October. Right from our initial e-mail to Gerard the staff were really helpful, recommending the best route to get over to Ilha Grande. We stayed in one of the rooms with sea view, balcony and hammock on the second floor and were happy we paid the extra for... More

We stayed 3 days here at this beautiful Pousada, and we didn't want to leave! From planning the last minute trip with Gerard to check out, they were nothing but extremely helpful and friendly. The owner was very quick in replying to all my emails, and offered helpful information. Laura the receptionist, although didn't speak any English, was extremely helpful... More

I read some of the references before booked the pousada and I found more and more. The owner Gerard, is a man of good taste and exquisite with details. A very complete breakfast like 5 star hotel, towels and sheets embroidered with the name of the inn, extremely clean everywhere, are just a sample of the good service. Every morning... More
