Ilha Grande is simply a paradise. What a wonderful island. Sagu was a terrific place to spend 3 nights in this paradise.
My favorite things about Sagu were the beauty of the place - rooms in free standing colorful cottages scatterd through the jungle on a hillside. Several small beaches are on either side of the resort and there are lush plants and flowers everywhere. It is away from town, so you have lots of privacy, but it's only a very short and very fun walk along the beach to town. Maybe 10 minutes.
There was a very nice speedboat waiting to pick us up at the ferry dock when we arrived. That was a nice touch! Our room was clean and comfortable. Don't expect "luxury," but it was nice. We had a beautiful view of the ocean from the hammock on our private veranda.
The staff at Sagu is very helpful and most speak very good English. Breakfast is a self-serve buffet with tables set by the water. There is so much food it is ridiculous. The food is very good. They also served lunch but we never ate lunch there. We did have dinner at the restaurant, Toscanelli, and it was FANTASTIC.
The location was very convenient to town and to the hiking trails over to Lopes Mendes. The front desk staff were also very helpful in setting up an excursions we wanted to do. We wanted a private boat for a day to take us to some beaches, and they did all the work. A boat showed up at 9:30 at the Sagu dock and we had the best day imaginable.
The only reason I don't give Sagu a 5 is because the rooms are fairly of basic.
Highly recommend Sagu.
