Tagomago is located at the main beach around 400 m from the main pier; a short path leads up from the beach to the lodge. Very peaceful and with a great view over the bay. Our room was very nice when you consider that you are on an island, and had a very nice balcony with a hammock and a... More

I believe in writing as fair a review as possible, so in the nature of fairness I shall start with the good: The staff were extremely friendly. We felt very welcome and at home here in that respect. The breakfast is of a good standard. Think cake, coffee, bread and lots of tropical fruit :) The view!! It was mesmerising,... More

Ilha Grande is a very rustic place... in Brazil.That said, don't expect to find the same level of comfort that you have in an urban environment. You must know the access to the pousada is a long alley with many steps up. If you really have to bring suitcases here you will need to be in very good shape or... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel in August 2014 during our 3 week trip to Brazil. It really was perfect for the location. The hosts were amazing and so helpful. The view was spectacular and the cakes were delicious. The breakfast is brilliant also. The room is really nice and provides a spectacular view of the sea.

Lovely place, nice room. Breakfast was very good. You need to carry your suitcase across the beach from the jetty and up the small slope/hill. The owner can give you recommendation on restaurants and walks nearby.

I tend to think giving five stars tempts skepticism, but I can't think of any reason not to give five stars to Tagomago. Management crew Caia, Hugo and Johnny are the most helpful and friendly hosts you could imagine, the breakfasts are seriously delicious and the rooms are clean and comfortable. Tagomago is located a short walk up from the... More

We enjoyed our two nights here. The location was perfect for us: we arrived with Easy Transfer by boat and had less than 5 minutes walk to the pousada. We were welcome by Hugo who explained us what to do on the island and coordinated our boat excursion around the island. This saved us lots if time which we appreciated... More

Ilha Grande is a crown off the coast of Brazil and this Pousada is the jewel! We were met at the jetty and their man barrowed our luggage up to the lodge (thankfully). The breakfasts were lovely and the eating area has a lovely view over the bay. The view from our balcony was spectacular too! We had the room... More

Hard to give a star rating to a pousada compared to a hotel. Not the same experience! More like camping with some amenities! But we loved the place. It was the staff that made iit such a wonderful experience, not the mosquitoes! Location was a bit of walk from town and up quite a few steps. Breakfast was good.

Tagomago is located about 70m from the beach and about 400m walk from the main pier. It has a nice and private location, but it is close enough to the restaurants and shops. Ilha Grande is a very nice island and Tagomago is probably one of the better places to stay. Good breakfast and they serve coffee and cake when... More
