“Superb, comfortable, very clean and excellent customer service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2012

This pousada is lovely! Right on the beach front. We got last room available at the back of the complex, at the rear garden for a discount and was really good and very quiet! Very clean and nice room. Breakfast is great, big variety of fresh fruit every morning! The staff are all extremely helpful and friendly. Ana and Meme will help you recommending excursions, walks, beaches and best places to eat out. They are really warm people and will help you out in everything you need. Trully recommend this place! This island is so beautiful and unspoilt.

Room Tip: We had the rear room at the back garden and was very good!

Stayed at this wonderful pousada during Christmas - it was fantastic. The staff, very helpful, making you feel apart of their family. We had a beachfront room, and it was great, clean, nice large size, and with a fantastic view. The location of the pousada is the big plus here - right on the beach and at the quieter end.

If travelling to Ilhe Grande from Rio by bus - this is the best tip I can offer - rather then getting off at Angras Dos Reis to get the boat across - get off at Conceicao De Jacarei - it will save you 45 mins on the bus and another 30 mins on the crossing to Ilha Grande - and its the same price - boats leave each hour and less busy

Room Tip: Beachfront upper level

I can't say enough about this place....the people, the location, the food, all were absolutely wonderful. I felt as though I was staying in a paradise with beloved family members only the family members were the Ancoradoura staff! There is nothing the staff would not do to help you make your stay as enjoyable as possible. I could go on about the beauty of the location which was truly wonderful, the sumptuous breakfast s with wonderful fruits and fruit juices, the simple but extremely clean rooms with wonderful views of the ocean, but what I remember and cherish most about Ancoradoura is the kindness and helpfulness of the staff. Meme is the best! Go, you will not be disappointed.

I stayed in a beach-front room with a friend for three nights and it was wonderful. 5 minute walk from the village and an amazing view of the harbor. Very clean and comfortably cool. The staff struggle with English but they have a translating program on the computer so we made it work. PLUS, after I left, I lost my wallet in Rio. A saint found it and the only way to find me was the receipt from the Pousada. The Pousada staff went out of their way to get in touch with me and help me (thankfully) reunite with my wallet. Above and beyond.

As an added note: it was kind of hard to get to the island until we found a Rio transfer service through GreenToad.com. $50 US each way and much faster and less stress than the public transport options (and actually a bit less expensive).

Room Tip: ocean view room wasn't much more expensive and AMAZING view

This great little hotel on Ilha Grande is 5 minutes walk along the beach from the main jetty in Abraao. The rooms are simple but clean and the place is well presented. The proprietor speaks some English and couldn't do enough to help. Very much recommended.

I loved staying here at Ancoradouro! I could not have asked for a better location-close enough to walk to everything but far enough away to be quiet at night. The room was very clean and I had a small fridge to keep cool drinks close at hand. The safe was very convenient as well. I had a small problem with the shower that was resolved quickly in spite of my terrible Brasilian Portuguese. The small garden was a great place to sit and watch the sun come up. Breakfast was wonderful-all the fruit I could eat. I would move in tomorrow if I could.

My partner and I were there around Easter 2010 and were overly pleased with Ancoradouro and their staff. Every email previous to our arrival was answered correctly and politely, and there was someone waiting for us at the ferry terminal upon our arrival. They also recommended a great tour agency for our transfers in-out of Rio. The rooms were great, the location is perfect and the staff is really friendly. So much so that when I got utterly sick the last night, they went to the trouble of calling the local clinic to come and pick me up, and prepared special food for me that night and the next morning. Amazing. I would totally recommend it.
