We stayed here as part of a tour. Up a steep hill - it must almost me the highest accommodation on the island. The room was large and we had a hot shower, Others staying there commented that they never had a hot shower. The place is really quaint with a great outdoor breakfast/meeting area.

We never got to stay in this Pousada. We made reservation via telephone which was confirmed by the person we spoke to - who would charge the first night on the credit card number that we gave him. Although we had a reservation confirmed with credit card, our reservation was cancelled last minute, leaving us without hotel for the next... More

we discovered this place on our visit to Ilha Grande. We stayed there two nights, I would say it is enough to get comfort and a sleep after a busy day around the different beaches. Good quality for money. The place sits up the hill, nicely surrounded by nature; it takes you aprox 10m from the harbour, so if your... More

We arrived on a long weekend with nothing booked and all hostels were full or asking for really high prices. We got away from the busy area and stumbled upon this beautiful pousada which was decently priced and in an amazing setting. The rooms were quite basic but I just loved the tropical garden around the pousada, waking up in... More

Ended up staying here for most of our time. The rooms and breakfast is basic but the price reflects that. The hammocks and outside space is just brilliant. It was sad to read about the last reviewers experience. It was the perfect backpacking haven for us.

My boyfriend and I had been advised to visit Ilhe Grande whilst travelling in Brazil and after reading some reviews we went for this pousada. We were after a quiet retreat to meet like minded people and this was the perfect place for just that. It was a little tricky to get to at first as not many locals had... More

It is a great place to stay - just 5 minutes away from the village center up a path that is not dangerous (nothing is in Ihla Grande). They have rooms with AC and with fans only. There are mosquitoes but you have them everywhere on the island. Breakfast is excellent - bread, jam, fruit, cereal, ham, cheese...The owner. Klaus... More

Judging from the price I was a little apprehensive of how good this place would be on what is quite an expensive island, although I was very pleasantly surprised when I got there. A picturesque small 'pousada' built fantastically. The staff are friendly but English-speaking was limited. Also there are a lot of cats there so be warned. All-in-all one... More

We were thrilled with this pousada. It's located among huge trees and plants in a very private location, right next to a river. Each room has its own porch. Ours had a hammock, potted plants and comfortable chairs. The entire property has plenty of places to lounge. We loved it! The beds were comfortable and the price was very reasonable,... More
