Apologies in advance for the long post! We REALLY enjoyed our stay here, we really did, but we do feel there’s a lot that could be improved. I’ll start with the positives. The setting! Absolutely amazing! It felt so special arriving by private speedboat straight to the dock of the pousada which is probably in the best setting across the entire island. As a family of 4 we had the large family room (room 2) in the building by the beach. We loved our huge private terrace with hammocks and lovely furniture to enjoy breakfast and the sun set views. The beds and pillows were super comfy and we slept really well listening to the gentle sound of ocean waves. Breakfast was always excellent with a great selection of hot and cold items. Food from the restaurant and the cocktails from Bonito Bar were always delicious (though slightly higher priced than other parts of Rio we thought). Staff were very friendly and spoke excellent English. We loved paddle boarding and kyaking, all included with the reservation. We also loved the private speedboat excursion (approx £180) which the hotel arranged for us. I highly recommend this over a group tour, we had an amazing time and was completely on our own schedule. Now for the negatives. Our room was very tired in places. The shutters and nets at the windows were battered and weather worn making them difficult to open and close. The bathroom was full of mould, not just the shower but the walls and even the wooden door. Understandably this is a rainforest island and the humidity causes a lot of damp issues, however I do feel more could be done to improve the mould in these areas. On more than one occasion we returned to our room to find other guests using our private terrace even though there were posters saying the area was private for rooms 1 and 2. I’m sure this was accidental but I do think the staff could monitor this a bit more closely to avoid the awkwardness of us having to raise it. Breakfast didn’t start until 8am prompt. Our kids are early risers and we felt this timing could be bought forwards slightly as there were a lot of other guests waiting around before 8am. Transfers. I had prebooked our arrival taxi and return private speedboat transfers (from Conceiçao Jacareí) directly with the hotel using their whattsapp service. I had checked and double checked this had been done. We had a moment of panic on our return speedboat journey when we were taken to a different port than where we’d departed. It was actually the outwards departure that was wrong, and we’d departed from Angra dos Reis unknowingly. Also, the evening before we were due to leave the Island the speedboat company tried to change the time of our departure which wasn’t possible because we’d arranged our own onwards connection from the mainland. This was overcome by us agreeing to share the speedboat with another family which wasn’t a problem but also wasn’t the private transfer we had booked and paid for. Finally, the real disappointment for us was the speed of service provided by the restaurant and Bonito bar . We are very laid back people and appreciate a lot of people are on “island time” but on one occasion we waited over 40 minutes for a small drinks order even though we were the only people in the bar. Another couple we spoke to had waited over an hour for their evening meal to be served. Often part of the order was missing and would arrive some time later. Sometimes the order didn’t arrive and a gentle reminder was needed. This happened on multiple occasions and eventually began to taint our stay. We did have a really lovely time here, the positives did outweigh the negatives but I just feel that Bonito Paraiso isn’t quite where it promotes itself to be, just yet!

Dear guest, we greatly appreciate your detailed description of your experience at our inn. It makes us very happy that you have enjoyed your days here and we also take note of the criticism, and we understand that each observation helps us to improve, review details and prepare our inn for new visitors. We just want to go deeper into some points that you commented on, which we think are important to make clear. Regarding the transfer, your request with us was to reserve the one way car and the round trip boat, and not the complete round trip. That is why the car that had to wait for you on the mainland was hired by you and despite the fact that Pablo told you where the boat would drop you , apparently you had a mix-up with the return driver, service that not depend on us. (We have WhatsApp conversations that make this explicit, in which we tried to make sure that you were clear that you would return to another port). And regarding the mold and the humidity in the room, we respect the comment and we agree with your observation, but we want to explain that we are recovering from a great storm that hit the island a few months ago and in which the water reached the property, within inches of the beach house. That is why we are still undergoing repairs and there are areas where the humidity has not yet gone completely. Finally, the prices we have in the bar and restaurant cannot be at the same level as those in other areas of the state of Rio de Janeiro, since we have to consider the cost of transportation, maintenance and refrigeration that the island has a value much higher than on the mainland. We are sorry for the delay in the service, we will certainly improve that! We hope that these details will be forgotten sooner than the pleasant feeling of your stay here lasts. See you soon!

My wife and I chose to stay here during our honeymoon as the location looked absolutely stunning and we wanted to be somewhere romantic and intimate. Bonito Paraiso did not disappoint. You wake up in the morning to the sound of the sea gently lapping up on the beach, and when you open your shutters you get a magnificent view of the ocean and nature. You can then have your breakfast on a terrace by the ocean, with a cook to create a selection of dishes. The staff are friendly and helpful, the bar is stocked and there are many activities available should you wish to go out for a day tour. I do recommend Lopez Mendez beach, but many other activities are also worthwhile. Our favorite thing to do was simply lounge by the sea and do crosswords, with a nice cold drink to hand. Could not recommend this place enough, and thank you to the staff for making our stay magical

If I could leave 10 stars I absolutely would!!! I’ve been to my fair share of islands and had experiences from almost being stranded on an island with no accommodations, to having the sand brushed off my beach chair at boujee beach clubs. Bonito Paraiso is SPECIAL. Beyond beautiful location tucked away on the edge of the ilha, magnificent beach with sparkly black sand (great photo ops) The staff here is incredible- Sergio in the front goes above and beyond to make sure every single need/want/question is met and answered. From sun up to sun down the team at Bonita Paraiso are so helpful and such a good vibe. I had everything I could have ever asked for here, AND MORE.

Wow, where do I begin. Do you want to go to heaven? This place is beyond amazing. Every single piece of our trip was exquisite solely because of the staff at this gorgeous resort. The drinks from the Bonito Bar are artisinally crafted masterpieces with careful attention to detail and quality by Israel and his team. The restaurant food is five star, from the fresh seafood to the filet mignon to the beachfront snacks. The rooms are modern, spacious, clean and have astonishing views. Sergio and the front desk team are so accommodating on every level of the experience here, I don’t think they know the meaning of the word no. You want to go on a island boat tour, the boat is there on demand. You want to have a massage on the beach the masseuse is pulling up. You want a romantic dinner the candles are lit and the roses are laid. It’s incredible how high the level of customer service is here, especially being on a secluded island. DO NOT miss this place if you are headed to Brazil and more specifically Ilha Grande. I wish I could give them more stars as they would be well deserved.

This resort is truly paradise!! When you want to escape the chaos of a larger city like Rio de Janeiro, go to the serene beach town of Ilha Grande. When you pull up to Bonito Paraíso by boat, the scenery is just stunning. The Bali-style bohemian decor and the long stretch of white sand beach is gorgeous. We stayed in both the beach house and jungle house, as the accommodating staff allowed us to experience both. Each morning of the beach house, we woke up to a gorgeous breakfast set-up, overlooking the water. Each day we were able to paddle board to nearby islands, snorkel, and post up at the resort beach bar. We ate most of our meals there because the food was unbelievable- highly recommend the caipirinha risotto which is a twist on the traditional beverage of Brazil! We were also able to hike (30min) to the nearby town with more opportunities to see natural pools and the shops of this beach town Highly recommend bringing water shoes! Or you can take a water taxi. Another day we chartered a boat trip around the island, exploring the gorgeous and green lagoons. We met so many locals who made the experience very fun! They were so shocked we had found this island for Brazilian locals- thank god for Instagram!! Upon leaving, we were warmly sent off by the incredible staff of this resort. They truly made us feel like family, which is something you can only get as a intimate, boutique resort such as this one. We will definitely be back and couldn’t be more thankful for our experience!!

This place feels like paradise. A small gorgeous beach just below the jungle, a cocktail bar with some brazilian music on the beach. As a hotel guest, you have sunbeds reserved for you with your room number next to them, so no need to hurry in the morning. The breakfast is divine (specially the watermelon and maracuja juices), the staff is supeer friendly (transit by boat from where you are on the island, is included both to get to the hotel, and to leave). Only small negative is the room (we had a room on the beach) which seemed a bit old and small and open to mosquitos (as close to the jungle).

We appreciate your time to share the good and not so good aspects of your stay. We will take into account the detail regarding the room. Every year we make reforms and repairs in the houses, especially in the beach one that is so close to the sea and constantly suffers from the movement of the tide. Thanks and see you soon!

Beautiful, relaxing and enjoyable stay! The owners did an incredible job with the property and it is very private and well located. As a vegan, it is sometimes hard to find places that will accommodate and I have never felt so catered to at a non-vegan establishment. The team ensured that there were plenty of delicious vegan options available for breakfast, tea time and dinner. Claudia and Ruy went above and beyond for us, and the beach bar was just perfect. Can’t wait to come back!

My wife and I stayed at the Beach House for 3 nights in November 2021. From the very first minute we felt like being hosted by our best friends. It is not enough to say that the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They were just beyond any imagination. The place itself has been converted by the owner into a real paradise. It is decorated as a personal home, not at all like a hotel or a resort. Multiple small details make you feel good. Any request is handled as a first priority. We enjoyed every minute of our stay here and would stay longer if we could. We have been to several islands that claim to be ideal, but this place is really unique and, from our experience, the best of all.
