My husband and I spent 3 days in one of the VIP suites and it was absolutely beautiful... Service impeccable, lovely facilities and the breakfast put on about a million kilos on both of us :) Will definitely be back!

Hotel Mercedes is a very nice and quite large property with a natural waterfall that fills up a nice water feature that separates the hotel. The Rooms are quite spacious with comfortable beds. The bathrooms are of a good size but could be a little bigger as the toilet is directly across from the shower with a very little gap... More

This hotel is huge! And it has definitely seen better days. It is 50 years old and it is very impressive how the owners managed to keep it working over the decades. Built as a Portuguese fort, it's fascinating how it's architecture cuts through natural rocks, making way to impressive staircases, corridors and a cute natural swimming pool, filled by... More

The hotel had clearly been through some renovations recently and was still going through some when we visited. With that being said, they kept the construction to daylight hours so it didn't disrupt our sleep too much. The hotel grounds were clean and very beautiful. The pools were right on the beach and the pool bar was nice. The staff... More

This is a very nice hotel. Much of it has been recently renovated, and they are still in the process of renovating some. The construction was a bit loud, but they limit it to normal hours during the day so it does not interfere with sleep. I think they are nearly done anyways. Rooms- I had a garden room. It... More

The hotel is well situated, facing the sea and fitted with a private beach. It has several swimming pools. It is very big, with lots of corridors stairs passages -you'd need a map to find your way around ;)- but it offers amenities for kids and is the typical place where you would go with your whole family and kids....

Very nice hotel with a private beach and a beautiful interior . Especially liked the area with fish.On the beach, beautiful view of the ocean . However, it should take the car as on foot to walk especially during the day is very hot.

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
