I have to admit I should have booked a room before coming to Ilha Grande. Arriving there in the end if the afternoon, I fell accidently on this pousada, and not much time nor courage to compare the offering on the island. But it was a mistake ! Poor room equipment, noisy pension, low appeal, no view (at least rooms... More

This intimate hotel is located in an idyllic spot on the beach a bit further along from the main hustle and bustle of the pier / restaurant area of Ilha Grande. The place is spotless and has a lovely little pool area (albeit it is lacking lying out beds) with a separate jacuzzi. The breakfast selection of breads, fruit and... More

To describe these rooms as rustic, would be an understatement. The beds look as if they had been handmade by an unskilled amateur. The linen was a bit too small for the beds and came off each night. The rooms smelled musty and dank. The woman who put out the breakfast was surly. Breakfast was ok, but not great. The... More

Coming from another Pousada, we stayed two nights at do canto. The Pousada looks very nice from the beach and has a pool if you care for that. The room was plain and ok, a psychic fish picture over the bed and disturbing colours taken into account. The aircon vas noisy, both our own and the ones on the neighbouring... More

Great place, located on a beautiful beach close to amentities such as shops and restaurants. Good sized rooms, air con/fan and fridge in room. Be warned - very little to no English is spoken here, so have your phrase book at the ready! Great breakfast and beautiful swimming pool/jacuzzi area. Ideal for couples/families.

We stayed three nights at this lovely "pousada" by accident, due to a mix-up with our booking elsewhere, but we loved it. Unlike most of the other guesthouses on the island it has a swimming pool and outdoor jacuzzi. It's in a good quiet location at the far end of the beach, and right on the front, so you just... More
