“Friendly and relaxed stay in beautiful Isla Grande”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

Planned only on staying for 2 nights and ended up staying for 4. The island is gorgeous and has a really laid back vibe, as does the Pousada. Rodrigo and Rita are great hosts and really go out of their way to make you feel welcome. They are full of tips and ideas on how to make the most of your time there. The Pousada has a lovely garden with hammocks (and not many mosquitos), really relaxing. Would definitely recommend.

The island is a wonderful place to rest, enjoy beautiful beaches and contact nature, that´s a given, but our experience was highly improved by Rodrigo and Rita´s advice (always honest and useful) on activities to do, places to eat, trails to explore etc.

Their Pousada is really warm and nice, they made us feel at home at all times, and they have the most amazing garden where breakfast was served. Nice and home-made, we had a chance to share ours with a hummingbird!

The room was simple, but cosy, clean and in good conditions. No luxuries, but nothing to be missed either. If we had to point at anything, it would be the mattress, which was a bit too hard for our taste, but nothing that would keep us from coming back.

In all, the whole experience was great, and chatting with Rodrigo and Rita and following their advice only made it better. We´ll be back!

We would recommend staying here. The owners were really friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were delicious. The surroundings were beautiful and quiet. Monkeys came to visit us one morning at breakfast and Rodrigo instructed us on how to feed them. The only cons are that there was no hot water and the rooms were lacking in storage, but a small price to pay for the tranquility and warmth of the place. Would definitely stay again.

We stayed 4 days at Pousade Ouro Verde and we had a wonderful holiday!
Rodrigo and his family were very helpful finding the best trips for us, and they were very good at listening to what we would like to do. Wonderful people! Every morning they served us home made breakfast - and the monkeys joined us at about 9 every day :-)
We give Pousade Ouro Verde our best recommendation - and would love to come back one day!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights. It's about a 10 minute walk from the town centre into the jungle. Don't be put off by the walk - the location is cooler and quieter for it, but take a head-torch at night to a avoid stepping on dogs and their poop...and mosquito spray for the evenings.

Great room - spacious, with en suite and clean towels...if a little sign heavy.

Breakfast - best we've experienced in a year of travels...cake...more cakes..homemade jams, caramel sauce, breads, hams, cheeses, fresh juice, coffee...and more. It is such an exceptional effort and alone, justifies the stay here. There are lots of creepy crawlies, but it is the jungle and they are totally harmless. Better still, hummingbirds hover around surrounding trees and flowers, they're such a delight.

Rita and Rodrigo are geared up to understanding guests needs. Information is readily available...with photographs, suggested routes, local tips and dos and don'ts. I wouldn't book anything without gaining Rodrigo's advice first.

Outstanding hosts, great rooms, a little treasure set away from the buzz and mania of town. Not cheap in the scheme of travelling, but reasonable relative to island prices - would definitely recommend to others.

We stayed here back in November and can't recommend it highly enough. Rita and Rodrigo were such warm, friendly, genuinely interested and genuinely interesting hosts! Each morning we were greeted with a different, delicious homemade breakfast and stories and advice from Rodrigo.

We really felt we got a different and very personal experience on Ilha Grande as a result of our stay here!

The rooms were lovely, with a lovely hammock outside to chill on and listen to the birds, monkeys and stream running nearby in the evenings. The little trek uphill is worth it as you get much closer to nature than you would in town!

We stayed for 6 nights in January and loved it! First of all, Rita & Rodrigo are best hosts EVER! From day 1, they made us feel very welcome. Every morning, we could not wait to go to breakfast as Rodrigo would tell stories about the island and help us plan our day's activity, while we enjoyed the amazing homemade breakfast buffet. If we would have any questions later during the day or evening, we could just ring the bell outside their house and Rodrigo would pop out in no time to assist us. On our last morning, we could nog resist to take a picture together with Rodrigo as a souvenir of our amazing stay!
