Nice little pousada which is very close to the arrival pier (1 min walk), and close to all the main restaurants/shops in the town. Helpful reception staff, but our room wasn't cleaned on our first night and the air conditioning unit definitely needs replacing. Sounded like an aircraft taking off. Slightly ruined the ambiance of the stunning Ilhe Grande. Nice... More

The reception staff were very friendly and kind and always had a friendly smile. Location was great but I was disappointed in the cleaning service and the air-conditioning. I expected a higher standard of cleaning in the bathroom. The air-con was old and did not work very well. The breakfast was very good.

Nice Pousada, owned by a french talking people kind and funny, close to the beach and the shops. The only "bémole" is the restaurant, at this moment mainly offering "crêpes à la française", nevertheless, a lot of restaurants have terrasses on the beach front road,not far from the Pousada Tropicana, where you can discover Brazilian food!

Very much an authentic Ilha Grande pousada — a charming little compound just off of the pier in the center of town — that is also comfortable, safe, and clean. The rooms are nothing fancy, but serviceable; the beds are a bit hard. Many rooms face into nice little courtyards with benches good for reading; some guests did yoga there.... More

The breakfast here was the best we experienced anywhere. The rooms were clean, had a nice balcony, and a view of the sea. This place is pretty much on the beach. Anywhere is a good location here because everything is walking distance. The WiFi in the Pousada was poor at best and worked sporadically in the reception area. Staff were... More

We had a wonderful experience. Our room was spacious, we got excellent advice from everyone that worked there and they were always available to answer our questions. The hostel was perfectly situated on the beach in the center of the action of town but was also quiet. We met wonderful people staying there and wouldn't have wanted to be anywhere... More

Just needed a clean place to stay. It has a decent breakfast. Wifi was spotty, only really works near front desk. We paid about $150 US a night. Front desk was friendly and have good recommendations in town. Just book it and have no worries.

Adorable place, tucked behind a small walkway off the main road. This keeps it quiet, and private, while being literally seconds from anything on the main street. Very nice and comfortable rooms. Literally my *only* complaint is the WiFi is only really accessible from the lobby, which you get to share with the Pousada's super chill cat who sits in... More

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.
