We stayed at Pousada Mara e Claude for a week. Wonderful owners, speak English, French and Portuguese! Really friendly, very clean, very quiet, wonderful breakfast. Less then 5 min walking and you have restaurants, bars and everything you need. The view is breathtaking, well worth paying the little extra if you can afford the room with views to the sea....

This cute guesthouse is located directly on the beach. I was staying alone, so was given a small room towards the back of the building. Nevertheless it was comfortable. Mara e Claude are hospitable and friendly. The guesthouse has a breakfast area overlooking the beach. It's such a lovely way to start your day. I'm hoping I will get a... More

Lovely clean Pousada/B&B right on the beach. Claude is an entertaining French man who with his wife own and run this beautiful place. Location is excellent, a couple of minutes walk along the beach from the center of town. Breakfast was good, with the best orange/mango/pineapple juice I think Ive ever had.... Our room at the front overlooked the sea... More

We stayed here last year but wanted to definitely express what a great time we'd had. There were 3 of us travelling together so we booked two rooms. I booked over the phone from England and it was all smooth. I'd researched loads of places on Ilha Grande and was so glad I had chosen Mara e Claude. They were... More

After initial difficulty to make the reservation (only possible by e-mail, a bit slow) we were extremely happy to stay at this charming pousada run by a couple very young at heart. We had a nice room with view to the ocean and a terrasse, very clean. Very good mattress and sheets. Good breakfast with very good coffee, and fruit... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in December 2013. The owners are very friendly and helpful, despite a minor language barrier (I only speak English fluently, but managed to speak a small amount of French). Rooms here are pretty nice and clean by Brazilian standards. It was high season, and the town of Abroaa was pretty packed, so we were... More

Stayed in 3-4 different poussadas in the island this was by far the best experience. Do not expect any 4 star comforts but you are not in Ihla Grande for those. Breakfast is good and in nice setting by the beach. A place to be considered seriously
