Very nice pousada with a great breakfast. The garden is lovely and well maintained, we liked the chill out area and the hammocks. The hotel charges 40 percent of the room stay per night for a child under 12 years. This seems expensive for a baby but they did prepare some baby food for me when I bought the ingredients.... More

Great pousada with a zen-like theme in their spacious garden. It’s a 5-minute walk to the beach/centre, but is much more quiet than staying on the main streets where all the restaurants are. The private room we had was big and clean and comes with (silent) A/C and hot water. We’ve heard from other people that hot water is not... More

My husband and I as young couple enjoyed our stay in Pousada Cauca in September 2014. Beautiful garden, very clean and comfortable rooms with a rich breakfast... Even you can get a free of charge DVD from the reception. We will stay there next time, for sure.

Small room and very small bathroom, old bed sheds and VERY UNKIND and UNHELPFUL staff! We lost the key of the room and the staff forced us to pay 50 Reais – never seen before that this kind of incidents are not covered within the price of the room. The only thing that impressed us was breakfast, that is really... More

Excellent localisation, really near to Abraao bay. It has clean habitations and the breakfast is really good. There is also an area for relaxing inside the inn. All the employees are attentive and willing to help.

Room was tiny and cramped and the AC was high up on the wall and hard to reach! The bathroom was tiny. The wifi was non existent. The morning breakfast was an utter disappointment with stale fruits with flies hovering over them which made the experience unhygenic. Ilha grande needs a good 5 star hotel. The pousadas just don't cut... More

This little pousada is a sanctuary all in itself. There is a large garden area besides the rooms that screams relaxation. Our actual hotel room was decent and clean but it was good enough for the price. The walk from the main road to the pousada is quite dark and can seem a bit unnerving at first [at least it... More

Great place for its value. Really cozy, lots of nice details, good people. Breakfast is also tasty and clean. The only not positive thing was that the bed matrix was worn out and was not comfortable. But it's fair to say that they really cared about that issue, gave us options and told us new mattresses were on they way... More

This pousada was a lovely place to stay for a few nights - very friendly and helpful staff, clean and very pleasant rooms, and very nice breakfast. The grounds also provide a great environment to relax, in hammocks or elsewhere in the large and peaceful garden. We also stayed in another pousada for a few days (due to availability when... More

The hotel was very clean, and room was nice (and my girlfriend is demanding on this aspect :)). Breakfast was brilliant, without a doubt. Lots and varied fruit, good natural juices, cakes (different every morning). A place we would definitely return!
