This is a very nice hotel. Wi-Fi was only available at the reception ( in 2012 anyways). Room was very nice, always tidy, comfy. They've got games and DVD s available at reception for rainy days (we had one). Place is absolutely amazing, beach is far though, a good hour uphill walk to the longest but obviously the most beautiful... More

My wife, Barbara and I had a lovely three night stay at the Pousada earlier this week. I'd echo some of the other comments here. Very friendly and obliging staff, especially Cintzia, who went out of her way to provide useful information and help out with bookings and recommendations on the first day. The staff seemed to be genuinely focused... More

i came here alone for 3 days to relax and unwind, what a great experience. rooms are clean and extremely comfortable. the staff were ok, however one staff member Cintia was amazing and should be given a pay rise. from the first time i spoke to her on the phone until i left the accommodation when it was raining and...

We stayed 6 days at this Pousada and was the best choice ever! The garden is amazing, relaxing. Rooms are very comfortable with a nice space for each room with a table, chairs and a hammock.

Very nice and beautiful little pousada in a quiet area. Nice little garden and view. Staff is very friendly, although not everyone spoke English. Very nice breakfast with a wide variety of different types of bread, cakes, fresh fruit, juices, eggs etc. If I return to Ilha Grande I will definitely try to stay at this pousada again.

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.
