After initial difficulty to make the reservation (only possible by e-mail, a bit slow) we were extremely happy to stay at this charming pousada run by a couple very young at heart. We had a nice room with view to the ocean and a terrasse, very clean. Very good mattress and sheets. Good breakfast with very good coffee, and fruit... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in December 2013. The owners are very friendly and helpful, despite a minor language barrier (I only speak English fluently, but managed to speak a small amount of French). Rooms here are pretty nice and clean by Brazilian standards. It was high season, and the town of Abroaa was pretty packed, so we were... More

Stayed in 3-4 different poussadas in the island this was by far the best experience. Do not expect any 4 star comforts but you are not in Ihla Grande for those. Breakfast is good and in nice setting by the beach. A place to be considered seriously

Amazing place, Claude is absolutely charming. The place was well located in front of the beach and next to a nice restaurant. the food in the Poussada was good. This place is a place to go. Thanks Claude.

Lovely small posada located right on the beach. The upstairs beachfront rooms look out over the water, and there is a small garden courtyard at the front for breakfast and relaxing. Rooms are small and simple, but very charming - driftwood furniture, lots of white. Breakfast is fantastic - array of cheeses, meats, breads, with fresh juice and eggs cooked... More

Had an oceanview room which was probably the only "saving grace." If you can't get an oceanview room then I think you could do better. When you first walk in to the pousada, it REEKS of cigarette smoke. The room was very small with very basic furnishings. We only stayed 2 nights so it was fine for us but I... More

This pousada has an ideal location (right on the sand!) and the owners Mara and Claude are so lovely. They speak Portuguese and French and are so helpful. The breakfast each morning was great and included freshly made omelettes and freshly squeezed juice delivered to the table. The rooms are fantastic and the location is brilliant. Wouldn't hesitate to reccommend... More

We were in Ilha from 17.4.13 till 22.4.13 .This place was perfect, I can give them only compliments, it was the best place: starting with the location and far from noise but still close to the centre and...

We were on the island in november 2012 and didnt make any reservation before hand since the communication seemed to be quite difficult as nobody really speaks english. Once we got on the island the pousada was one of the first we went in and booked it right away. Mara and CLaude are just the cutest couple, the house and... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in the Christmas period. It's such a nice place, on a quiet location but close to Ilha Grande's 'action' (5 min walk) with incredibly friendly owners! Unfortunately we booked quite late so were unable to get a sea view room. Instead, we had a small room in the annex with a view of the... More
