We stayed at Pousada O Pescador for 4 days with our family. The place is very nice and clean, near the pier and a only short walk from amazing beaches and all the main shops/restaurants. The food was amazing and all staff was very friendly. The view from our room and the ocean 'noise' at night made our stayed even... More

We stayed at Pousada O Pescador for 5 nights after the New Year's Eve. Room we got was bright, spacious and with a nice large shower. The buffet breakfast was sufficient, some cut cheese and ham, bread rolls, cake, cereals and fruit. A major advantage of this Pousada is its location - it's 50m away from the main dock, which...

I loved this pousada. The owner was kind. The room was clean and air conditioned and perfect for a stay on Ihla Grande. It does get a little loud at night because of the restaurant below, but I was stirred from a day in the sun I didn't mind. Didn't want to leave and would definetly stay again.

First time to Ilha Grande and so glad we happened to stay here. Christina's English is excellent - so friendly and helpful, she even walked us to our water taxi and helped us plan our day to Lopes Mendes. The room we had was small and spartan but clean with a nice bathroom and very good for the price. We... More

We stayed here for 5 nights looking for a beach holiday after several stays around south America. The hotel is located just at the end of the pier where you depart the boat, so hardly any distance to walk,...and what seems to be a busy local area for diners and drinkers. Francis, who runs the hotel, is very friendly and... More

Noisy ac. We had the luck of getting one of the rooms with the view towards the beach. The room was small and furniture poor. Maybe due to a late reservation and poor timing the room was quite expensive.

After reading the excellent comments about the Pousada O Pescador, I decided to stay. I think that whoever wrote those comments, or never been in a good hotel (hostel) or stayed in the room only to change clothes ... It is impossible to sleep with so much noise! The hostel is located opposite the beach, next to a youth hostel... More

Been to Ilha Grande three times and the best place to stay is absolutely O Pescador Just love to sit on the balcony and enjoying the seaview. VERY nice staff and a VERY nice restaurant downstairs. See you again in February next year.

My husband and I, together with a friend, stayed at Pousada O Pescador for 2 nights in April 2009. There are a number of horror stories on TripAdvisor about accommodation on Ilha Grande and we were really pleasantly surprised by our stay. Our room was at the front of the pousada, overlooking the beach. We had a small balcony (complete... More

As already stated in a previous review the beach front is the worst place to stay on Ilha Grande: you come here to 'get away from it all' right? here you'll find yourself in front of the busiest pier where boats hunt for day-trippers (daytime, starting around 7 AM) -right onto the beach where evrybody ends up after having a...
