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

We enjoyed our stay at the Posada Cauca. Me and my boyfriend stayed for 6 nights. And we loves the atmosphere, and the service. The only thing to be improved is the internet connexion, which is very very slow. It was expensive but worth it. Breakfast was also very good.

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
