Ilhabela is stunning. And Hotel Mercedes is no less. Beautiful heritage bungalow has been remodelled into a picturesque hotel next to the beach. Nestled in between the sea and a small hill, it has got some of the most helpful staff I have met in a long time. Despite us not knowing the local language, they actively used Google Translator...

I stayed at Hotel Mercedes in October 2013 as part of an extended stay in Brazil following a wedding earlier in the week. The group decided to stay at this property given it's vast space. Getting to the hotel from the ferry station is about a 20 minute drive and the main town center was about a 30 minute walk... More

Wonderful but odd, medieval in sub tropical setting with modern, excellent service, but very little choice in breakfasts architecture out of place in surrpundungs. Oddly nice and pleasant. The toucan greetings each day were raucous and fun

Quiet, excellent location, away from the hustle and bustle of tourist areas. Gorgeous surroundings, big rooms, decent breakfast choices. Restaurant service not so good though. Getting to and from the hotel is easy - you can take the buses or taxis.

Well situated, just by the sea with a great swimming pool on a deck over the sea, one of the innumerable Ilhabela beaches just a couple of meters away. Ample space, generous and a very good breakfast, great service. Parking by the door.

This hotel offers very good standards in location, service, accommodation, facilities and cleanliness. The bar service and the pool area are at the water front across the road and is in very good order with friendly staff. The hotel is modern and seems to be freshly renovated. The beaches near the hotel are picture perfect. However, we are not sure... More
