Rooms were pleasant, grounds and gardens beautiful, excellent breakfast. A short walk from town, which makes it quieter. Has good A/C - an essential. Staff does not speak much Spanish, French or English - like most places in Brazil. I would stay here again, the island is beautiful.

My spouse an I stayed at the Pousada Cauca for a week and can recommend it highly. Quiet w an interior garden area and reading/meditating pavilion, good breakfast and unexpected tea/coffee time in the afternoon, well located on a quieter street but close to everything, very nice staff, very clean (with nice, soft towels!), and even a parting gift!

This pousada is a good option in Ilha Grande where accommodation is somewhat limited. The garden was definitely the most impressive part, very pretty and relaxing with hammocks and cushioned areas to chill out. The room was okay! a little bit dark and enclosed. Would benefit from a few small improvements.The bed was quite small and hard, in saying that... More

Very good location. In the middle of all restaurants, close to the beach. The rooms are simple but sufficient, good price level. The rooms are cleaned very good. The only remark would be the very hard beds. Very relaxed laid back atmosphere. The staff is very friendly. The breakfast is very good.

Pousada Cauca really surprised us and we wish we could spend more nights there. The Garden is amazing; it even has a relaxing área with big pillows and music... perfect to chill out after a hike Breakfast is varied and delicious DVDs and books are available with DVD player in the rooms Free tea\coffee was also appreciated in the afternoon

We had a small room close to the reception area. The bed and bathroom were fine, but I always like at least one chair in a room, and there wasn't one. The place was a bit noisy: people walking by talking, or playing music in the garden. Breakfast was pleasant - nice fruit juice, cake, eggs, coffee, only white bread.... More

Cauca was a very nice Pousada with helpful staff, good rooms and nice surroundings. Silent location, close to main streets, restaurants and beaches. Make sure to do some hiking on Ilha grande, well worth the effort - Lopez Mendez offers great waves

Stayed in this nice pousada for 13 nights in March 2015. The room is very simple but has everything you need for a pleasant stay. The breakfast is great and they also offer an afternoon tea. The staff is really nice and the location is also very good. I also loved the gardens and their relaxing cantinho zen.

The Pousada is set in a really sweet surrounding and has nice area to relax and read. On a few occasions there was no power but the generator works well so it was only question of seconds. The only downfall was that there would be only cold water coming out of the shower when there is a power cut. The... More
