The Pousada Tropicana was a great place to stay while on Ilha Grande. The price was fair and the room was great. The only downside of the place was that no one was at the desk from 1pm-2:15pm to check in. Other than that, it was a nice place and a nice end to my trip in Brazil.

Excellent location, right by the beach, near to restaurants, grocery stores, travel agencies and the docks. The staff is very helpful and did their best to meet the requests I made in the reservation form. They also had great tips for short trips in the island and offered discounts for a travel agency next to the hotel. In the outdoor... More

There was a rather large blue colured crab who would put in an apearance (wouldnt harm you) in the grounds down stairs kind of cute :-)... More

Location: The pousada is right by the beach and is within one minute walking distance to the pier (which is where the majority of the boats depart). There are a couple of grocery stores nearby. Rooms: The rooms are located at the back of the pousada so it is quiet. The room is cleaned and the towels are changed everyday... More

My sister and I stayed here for a few nights in March 2014. It's right by the beach and in the main bit of town but as the town is so small anyway there is no noise so the location is perfect. The rooms were basic but clean with a nice large shower room. There is also a communal area... More

Location Location Location. This is located in the best place of the Abraao (ilha grande) area. In front of the beach, easy to rent stand up paddles and bikes, try slackline and swim. Friendly people working, lots of languages spoken, clean and a perfect breakfast with beach view. The ''vibe'' of this place is something special. People have soft talking,... More

Very nice and helpful people at the reception. Room was rather small and not exactly clean. Don't expect too much from the breakfast because it was rather simple. Considering that Ilha Grande is a relatively touristic place, the prices we're according to this (high).

Really comfortable rooms with A/C. Great location. It's so close to the main street and to the harbor but still surrounded by beautiful nature (also gardens with hammocks). We also loved this place because they have their own cat that slept in the common area all the time.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Pousada Tropicana opened in 1989 and was one of the first. Located beachside of Abraão in the center of the island's main village, the Pousada Tropicana offers you the opportunity to dive in clear waters, take a relaxing walk, breathe the pure air of the woods, or else make the true adventures trails. If you are still not satisfied, you may chill in the sand with a drink, eating fried shrimp. All to the accompaniment of experienced guides. ... more   less
