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. The breakfast is really complete and they also offer a lovely tea and bakery in the evening. Cynthia and Sandra are really helpful and... More

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.

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

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.
