The location was perfect and the staff was very friendly. The hotel accommodations were simple, but we had everything we needed. Good breakfast. We would certainly highly recommend this Pousada! Enjoy the island. It is beautiful!

My family stayed here for 6 nights in July and LOVED every minute of it! The location was perfect and the staff was very friendly. The hotel accommodations were simple, but we had everything we needed. The church bells woke us every morning. The kids loved the pool and the game area. We would certainly highly recommend this Pousada! Enjoy... More

The location is undeniably great ! 3 minutes walk from the main jetty. The Pousada is however disappointing. A family room 1 double, a single and a pull out bed had insufficient storage for one person let alone 4! Our air conditioning dripped ( necessitating a room change at 10-30pm) and although "fixed" dripped again on two consecutive nights. The... More

The Pousada is in a perfect location in the centre of town. The rooms were basic but contained all the necessary amenities. The gardens were lovely and well kept. Its true that the staff are not overly friendly - for example information regarding breakfast, the safe, using adaptors was not explained to us like it usually is on check in.... More

We booked last minute for our hotel in Ilha Grande. It was a splurge, over our budget, but when you book late in the already bustling holiday season, we can't complain. The location of this hotel is great! Right on the main street facing the beach. Upon arrival we met Eric at the reception desk, who was super friendly and... More

Ilha Grande is a magical place, but this pousada made our vacation seems like a nightmare! Completely not professional managers, poor service, poor quality of the accommodation and you have to solve the problems they give you by yourself. To list what went wrong: 1) they charged us for the stay with 1 month in advance, without any warning. Our... More

The hotel has a great environment, the location is incredible (close to restaurants and a few meters from the port), and staff is very friendly. Rooms have a great size, with hangers, silent a/c, a ceiling fan, and a oversized bed, that could be a little softer. Common areas were also great with a steam sauna, a fair pool and... More

After seeing the high reviews we booked here for our wedding anniversary trip. Very upsetting experience. No receptiveness, cold, grumpy people. First we paid R$450/ night and were told there was only one room left when booking, when there was actually at least 10 rooms available! Second, the reception was uninterested and unhelpful. Deceiving site description makes it look the... More

The good reviews this place receives are probably because of its location (and due to the fact that people who are traveling to Ilha Grande, this paradise, are prompt to enjoy things). In reality this hotel is hugely OVERPRICED. At first it may impress but the good impression will not last long - staff is rude and seem disgruntled, rooms... More
