Estrela has unique location on beautiful Ilha Grande. Accessible only by water or hiking trails from other parts of the island Because of that the prices are high for what you get, but the place is certainly memorable. Simple, but testy and healthy food in super romantic setting. Rooms are a bit basic, more like an Eco lodge, sleeping is... More

My husband and I spent about 5 days of our 2 week honeymoon at Estrela da Ilha. We wish we stayed longer! This pousada is best for flexible travelers with a sense of adventure who are ready to go out and explore, but could be just as happy reading all day in a hammock if it rains. It's great for...

We had the most pleasant experience at Pousada Estrela da Ilha. Martin and Cris, together with their staff, including their manager Carol, were very welcoming and helpful throughout our 3-day stay at this wonderful place.

We loved the yoga inspired lodge on a private relaxing beach. Perfectly located for great hiking, kayaking, and yoga/exercise. Nelson and his wife that run the lodge are very accommodating. They were so nice in every way including the staff. The food was excellent although calorically I don't think they stayed in the range they needed to for the day... More

This Pousada really is something special. It's situated on a small, but secluded beach, where all you hear is the waves crashing and the wildlife around (and the occasional boat). The room we stayed at was very large and impeccably clean and the breakfast buffet (included in the price) was second to none. The lunch and dinner menus, it must... More

Lovely poussada, with the best sunsets anywhere! Excellent food at a good price. Nelson and his wife were excellent hosts. We spent our days kayaking, relaxing, hammock-swinging, watching sunsets, and generally enjoying the isolation. I can't recommend it highly enough. Thanks!

This is a fabulous hotel in a beautiful location. Its great place for a relaxing few days, fresh air, walks, swimming, and kayaking.

The location is beautiful, although quite expensive to get to as its quite isolated - R$200 in a water taxi one way from Abraao, a few guests were complaining about the costs to the mainland as well.
