We can't recommend enough. Simple but fantastic accommodation. Wonderful breakfast and afternoon tea. Stay made very special by host rennie and her endless supply of beach towels, sarongs and even body boards. Rennie will also take the time to recommend where to go and the best restaurants. Went with two teenagers and by far the best part of our trip.

Aratinga Inn was the highlight of my trip to Ilha Grande! Rennie the owner was so enthusiastic and full of energy, and she knew everything about the hikes and the island. The breakfast was delicious, with lots of options for healthy eaters, and they let us use even a backpack for a hike (and also a blow-dryer). The afternoon tea... More

If you go to Rio and do not visit Ilha Grande, you are crazy... and if you go to Ilha Grande, and don't choose to stay at Aratinga Inn, you are even crazier! The location is fantastic - within 3-5 minutes walk of all of the bars and restaurants of the charming port village of Abraao (where all of the... More

Ilha Grande is a beautiful island and staying at Aratinga Inn made the experience even more magical! Rennie is outstanding and knows exactly which restaurants to try, the best tour operators, the trails to the beaches and can answer any questions one might have about the island and what to see and do. The cottages are tucked away in the... More

By far the best thing about Aratinga is the proprietor, Renny. She is happy and enthusiastic and eager to help you plan your activities on the island. The rooms were very clean, comfortable and everything was in good working order. Unlike most places that only serve breakfast, Aratinga serves breakfast and afternoon tea. I remember Renny saying in her wonderful... More

My boyfriend and I spent three nights at Aratinga Inn and simply loved it. We had a very special time over there: lovely place, amazing people, good food. We are looking forward to coming back one day. Ilha Grande is a paradise and Aratinga Inn is the best place to stay there.

Everything that all have written so far about how wonderful Aratinga, Rennie and her staff are all true. While there are many nice posadas in Ilha Grande, Aratinga is just magical. I wouldn't think of staying anywhere else and hope to return someday!

The first thing that happens when you arrive at Aratinga Inn, is that Rennie gives you pretty much all the information you need to have a fantastic stay on Ilha Grande. She knows the best tour operators, the trails (and fantastic shortcuts) to go to the beaches and can help you plan every day to suit your needs. Don't worry... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Aratinga Inn for two nights in August and it was just what we needed to relax at the end of a whirlwind vacation in Rio! The accommodation was fabulous - our room was absolutely lovely, complete with an overhead fan, mini-fridge stocked with soda, beer, water, and snacks, tv (which we never used... More
