I recently stayed here with a group from my school and had a very good experience. The pousada was what we needed- nothing fancy but was perfect for us. The buffet breakfast was very good and the staff were all very friendly. The location is excellent as it is on the beach front. The only bad thing was that the... More

The best place during our trip in Brazil during June-July 2014 (on budget). Location perfect. Baby room with micro etc. in the hotel area. Nice pool and play area next to that. And this hotel/pousada accommodates families with children. Nice room and air condition + fan. Helpful staff. Bathroom ok. Breakfast and breakfast interior really nice. Baby bed available as... More

We arrived in Ilha Grande and loved it from the moment we stepped off the boat. It is absolutely stunning with clear water, rain forest covered hills and soft sandy beaches. The Pousada itself is in an excellent location, just 2-3 minutes walk from the pier and we found our room spotless, basic and comfortable. Everything we wanted. There is... More

This was the first hotel I stayed at on my trip to Brazil. It was very authentic and absolutely breath taking. It is located in a prime location. The only draw backs is that the wifi did not work well and the AC unit in my room did not work very well, but overall a great stay!

In the center of town facing the beach, this pousada is a really nice place. The rooms are simple but very clean. There is a small pool, which is very nice. Breakfast was good. At night it's nice to sit outside in front of the pousada's restaurant and enjoy a great Caipirinha.

This was the first stop on my Brazilian vacation and Ilha Grande is the whole package, but Recreio da Praia is a very comfortable little hotel and the complementary breakfast is amazing with a beautiful view of the beach. This lost just one point (it would be less than on if possible) because of the WiFi, which was almost non-existent.... More

This Pousada was really charming and is located in a very convenient location. The beach is just a couple of steps from the lobby. Restaurants, ice cream shops, and a variety of small business were so close-by. It is a very casual hotel and offered exceptional size rooms with great amenities, including air-conditioning, a recreational area with a pool table,... More

Excellent pousada located right in front of the beach. The staff is friendly and understand decent English. There is a swimming pool inside with a pool table. There is also many plants inside that create a fresh atmosphere in the morning. The bed is decently comfortable and I have a awesome rest. Right outside the Pousada is bunch of shop... More

The rooms were very clean and the staff was very friendly, but the best part was the location. We were probably 50 yards from the beach! The pousada is near a lot of restaurants and has a breakfast every morning. Everything was great except the Wifi was a little spotty.

Wow! What a great location! It takes no effort to go to the beach or any of the restaurants in Ilha Grande. Pousada Recreio da Praia was only a few feet from everything! The pousada has nice sized rooms with well working air conditioners which helped a New Yorker like myself adapt to being in South America. Wifi didn't work... More
