A very sweet, relaxing jungle retreat just 5 minutes walk from the beach. The break fast was great, the hammocks on the balcony were lovely to relax in, the staff were friendly and very accommodating and we loved the coffee and cake in the evening, a very nice touch! It was so nice to be woken up by the wildlife... More

After a bit of disapointed stay in Rio we were very happy yo arrive at Cambuca. The staff is very friendly, the room is great and all the plants and flowers are making it a real paradise. The breakfast just as great. Every day some variety, fresh fruit, nice bread and homemode cakes. It also great that they won't sugar... More

We spent 3 nights at this pousada in late April. The rooms are beautiful, comfortable, and clean. It felt like our own little cabin! The breakfasts are incredible and the staff are very helpful. The pousada is a short walk from the village, and is off the beaten path a bit. We never felt unsafe but it's something to be... More

Very nice hotel that gives you the feeling of sleeping in the rain forest. The hotel is flexible in rearranging rooms for you (one big bed, two separate beds etc.) and also in general the staff is very helpful. Also, the breakfast was definetly a winner. The nights are nice and quite, you will hear a lot of nature sounds... More

Very sweet and small pousada in a quiet street on the edge of the town. We didn't have the best room (on the corner on the 1st floor, near the communal area), and the hammock was basically at the top of the stairs, so not a private space. The same with the window, and it was quite noisy with other... More

We stayed at this pousada for our entire stay in Ilha Grande (3nights). The setting of the pousada is very night, it looks like you go trough the rain forest to access your room.The room was big enough for two big suitcases and the beds very comfortable. Surprised of having a nice flat tv and even a dvd player (the... More

This is a nice place to stay on Ilha Grande. It is very quiet and the rooms are nice and clean. The breakfast was decent as well and the manager was nice. Only downside is that over the weekend you have to book three night (Fri-Mon) which can be inconvenient and expensive if you have time for the weekend only.

I spent almost a week with a friend, stayed in a standard room and we had a wonderful time there. The place is full of vegetation, a nice view to the mountains and the attention really friendly. Breakfast was very big!!! I fully recommed this place.
