There are probably cheaper options on Ilha Grande, in town, but nothing I saw there could compare to the sense of peace, the beauty of the setting, and the warmth of the staff. It is a pretty easy walk (bring a flashlight after dark) to get to the "center of the action" in town, or you could hire the boat... More

From the moment my girlfriend and I arrived on Ilha Grande and were picked up and brought by boat to the Sagu resort all my stress melted away. It was a welcome break from the sometimes hectic touring of Rio and offered a truly calm and welcoming atmosphere. The proximity to beaches and to the town of Abrao makes it... More

Sagu Mini resort gives you a great Ilha Grande experience as it is near private beach's and not far from where the ferry docks/Abraao centre. Private boat can pick you up if you have luggage, wise to pre-book. Back-packs can be carried along the beach-fronts to hotel as we did. Reception speaks 4 languages including English. Rooms well equip and... More

The island is beautiful and this resort is the perfect place to stay at when there. You're close enough to town, the rooms are beautiful, the balcony area is the icing on the cake. Staff is friendly and helpful, loved them all! The restaurant is great! Best fish I've had in years! Would recommend the island and this resort to... More

Stayed here recently and the setting is absolutely ideal. The beach is just to the side and the rooms are in the grounds which are well kept with interesting plants. The rooms have balconies with hammocks and are very clean.Most of the staff are really helpful and pleasant.However there are some difficulties. The breakfast was just about Ok but foods... More

I stayed with friends for two nights in April 2014, and was very happy with the stay. Friendly, smiling and helpful staff, nice rooms (great terrace at room no 5), and relaxed atmoshere all around. There is only a very short walk to the village, so we had the option of dining at the hotel or going out. Food at... More

Positives: Great location just outside the village. There is a jetty so you can catch boat transfers/excursions. Staff are helpful. Breakfast is decent but not wonderful. Negatives: We had to haul our baggage ourselves across two beaches and hills to get to the resort - no collection by boat. They ran out of beach towels for guests. They ran out... More

A very cute, well located hotel in an idyllic setting. When you arrive to town they will send a small boat to pick you up, you just need to call them (which can be an issue if you don't have a phone that roams). The staff is super nice and friendly (I would like to highly recommend Jean Louis, a... More

Staff made very good service! Very quite and nice ambient. Rooms are of good value for its money for brazilian prices. Make a reservation if you want to go to the resort's restaurant, they have not the capacities to welcome every customer they have if the resort is fully booked. The restaurants at the village 10min away are of a... More
