A wonderful location. We shall never forget the breakfasts on the terrace gazing out toward the sea 5 metres away and the distant mountains and islands. The room was very small (no space for a chest of drawers and only a very small single wardrobe, but the Bathroom was clean and tidy. Free wifi in rooms and reception, slow speed... More

We weren't planning on staying on Ilha Grande. We were on a 2-day sailing trip with friends, and my partner got violently sea sick, so we decided to get off the boat when we got to the island. At about 10:30 PM. The first few pousadas we tried were either closed, or not interested in putting us up for the... More

Was traveling with my wife during Christmas time. We were lucky to find a room without any reservation but obviously had to pay a hefty price for it. The rooms were very basic but neat and clean. Overall, it was worth it because of its location.

The Pousada is located directly at the beach and 2 mins walk from the main piers. Everything you need on the island is max. 5 mins walk from the hotel. Rooms are spacious and equipped with a safe and fridge. The bathroom needed a renovation. Breakfast is rather basic with limited choice.

Really good value for money and great customer service. Only issue we had was that they started repairing the pool during our stay, but they gave a us a discount for the inconviniance. Personel was really friendly and provide us with valuable advise on what to do and where to eat. The place is well located, close to the main... More

The best place in Abraao from what I could see. Right at the seafront but still in the back to avoid the noise (well, except for the church "bells" but they only announce the hour at decent times not during the night or morning). It's a few steps from the dock (and the path up to it is suitable for... More

We were here for 4 days with our 3 children. This is an island where luxury cannot be expected. The nature is the real attraction! However this pousada has a working wifi, a pool and a playroom (basic, but the children enjoyed this). The location is great. We arrived at night and we were very close to the dock, so... More

This pousada is completely fine. Nice that it has a swimming pool. Quite value, good location if you want to stay close to the pier. Lacks charm though! I stayed here with two young children for a weekend, and found the location very convinient for such a short stay. I do however prefer the pousadas that are a bit away... More

Lovely little Posada just minutes walk from the harbour side where the ferry docks. Our room was clean and pleasant, right by the pool area. Breakfast was ok - the toastie machine was the highlight. The staff don't speak English, but Spanish will get you by there. There's no wifi at all, but this is to be expected on the... More

Just got back from Ilha Grande and stayed at this excellent Pousada for 2 nights. I wasn't expecting much considering that it's on an island with limited resources, but it had everything we needed. The staff were friendly and helpful, the wifi connection was good and reliable, the rooms were very spacious, modern, comfortable with a/c, hot showers and a... More
