Had a very good stay here a couple of weeks ago for 3 nights with my wife. The staff were great and the location is excellent (right on the beach). The island itself is amazing and I recommend a boat trip. Would highly recommend staying here!!!

The pousada was very comfortable and good value for money. The staff were extremely helpful and able to make recommendations about everything from hiking routes to boat trips. They will arrange for someone to meet you off the boat with a trolley, which is very useful for getting luggage across the sand!

We splashed out a bit on this place but were really happy with it. Very helpful staff, especially Meme. Clean and basic rooms, with wonderful ocean views at the front. Breakfast was decent with plenty of fruit and bread. The staff are very attentive and the rooms were always meticulously cleaned. Thank you!

Nice pousada, very well located on the main beach in Ilha Grande : right in front of the sae, and a few minutes away from the noise of the village. Meme added an extra bed for our toddler free of charge. Nice breakfast with delicious fresh juice and fruit platter

I really liked staying at Ancoradouro. It is clean and its owner is friendly and amazingly helpful. The rooms in front of the beach were nice and we could hear the sound of the ocean. For breakfast, we had a great cake !
