We stayed for nine nights in the big room (the honeymoon suite) and loved every moment. The villa is elegant and glamorous, the host family and staff are lovely and thoughtful, the views are amazing and the food is brilliant. Breakfast includes an unlimited selection of crepes (served with lime juice and cinnamon), as well as tropical fruits, eggs, cereal,... More

I can only agree totally with all of the other wonderful reviews. We stayed in the beautiful honeymoon suite last summer and I've only just got around to reviewing it because I came home pregnant :) The best place we have ever stayed by far. Highlights included trekking in the forest, a romantic dinner on the roof under the stars... More

The first words that come to mind when thinking of the Vila are at the same time: “WOW!!!!!” and “THANK YOU!!!" The villa, its beautiful jungle surroundings and its wonderful inhabitants seem to come straight from a fairytale. We had the pleasure and privilege of sharing one week with Sarie and her beautiful family who made every second of our... More

Very intimate little place with only three rooms. Stayed four nights and throughly enjoyed it. The suite verde is what we got and it was very enjoyable. THe transport to the island was arranged by the hosts all the way from the airport in Rio, and although slightly pricey it worked like a charm and it was nice to avoid... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights at the end of December. The perfect relaxing end to our Brazilian adventure. After a week in Rio and 4 days near Abraao (main town on the island), this place was exactly what we wanted. Pure relaxation. Our 3 days consisted of eating scrumptious food made by Rhiann, laying on the... More

Pousada Vila Pedra Mar is absolutely outstanding! The service is fantastic and every detail is taken care of by Riann, Karien and Sarie who are there not only to welcome you, host you, but also send you off in person. They are very warm, polite and the best hosts you can imagine. The room was large, clean with a comfortable... More

As vacation experiences go, Vila Pedra Mar is faultless. My girlfriend and I spent a long weekend (three nights) and from the first moment we felt like we were visiting old friends such was the welcome and hospitality from Riann, Karien, Daniel (their son) and Riann's mother, who built the place with her husband. The best way to describe the... More

The most charming, romantic and wonderfull place to stay ever! We stayed in the honeymoon suite, which was definately worth the extra money, even though the other suites were also extremely nice. And Riann and Karien are so nice - it feels like being at home and in paradise at the same time.

We stayed here for part of our honeymoon and had a brilliant time. The breakfasts and dinners were all delicious. Rooms are fantastic - especially the honeymoon suite. It's definitely worth the extra money, one of the loveliest rooms we have ever stayed in. We had some cloudy days during our stay but honestly it didn't matter as it is... More
