I loved Pousada Lagamar. The location is great, between the jungle and the sea. I was able to spot amazing sunsets from my room and to sleep with the sound of the animals. The staff was great, specially Luciana and Ezequiel who were very helpful with the planning of my trip. Delicious and colorful breakfasts, great walks in the rainforest to beaches near by. You can also feel the love that Eduardo puts in everything he does from receiving you with a sweet smile to leaving your room sparkling clean. I would love to go back!

I would really strongly advice people to book at this pousada, 2 - 3 days, combined with another pousada they own not too far away but much closer to a much nicer beach (pousada Crusoe). Lagamar is situated uphill in the forest, so really easy to get out for nice walks

This is a charming hostal in the middle of the rain forest just a 3 minutes block from Praia Vermelha harbor. The rooms are clean, offer fan and aircon (also with heat if you go for the short but cool nights in winter low season), just what you need. The the balcony with hammock and a wonderful landscape where you can see great sunset views to the sea. Breakfast is served very complete and everything looks homemade and tasty. Thumbs up! You can also have dinner, special daily menus (fresh fish, soups, etc) prepared by Ezequiel owner and host. The service is the best, always willing to help and give orientation and recommendations for an excellent stay in this small and quiet village in the island.

We stayed 4 days in ilha Grande in Pousada Lagamar. We had amazing time, lot of walking and exploring, lot of animals to see, amazing beaches, snorkeling time, and really welcoming people in Pousada Lagamar. The boss Luciana - who speak perfect English and she was super helpful, made us lovely breakfast every day, her husband Ezekiel - with whom we spoke our broken Spanish, made us best pizzas and bbq, the guapo Pablo - the master chef and best caipirinha maker, always smiling Jorge, and others. (+Friendly cats and dogs as well) ❤️ The rooms are nice, always clean, new towels every day and so on. Hammock in front of every room. Anti moskitos candle for each night. Maybe we visited the place in low season (beginning May, even it was 30 degr.) so it was really calm ..but I guess even usually it's calm place in the middle of the forest, near the beaches, with only few possibilities of restaurant and almost no possibility of shops. Paradise for those who doesn't need many people around! BE AWARE! If you are arriving in the evening to praia vermelha you will have to order a taxi boat which can be very expensive ( we paid 300real for 2person to arrive, 7:15pm we took a boat and it took us approx.1.5 hour) so always better to plan this trip to arrive in the morning from Angra dos Reis (then the boat is only 50r pp or 53pp with card). ( Angra dos Reis from Rio you can take bus or cheaper and faster blablacar; 3hours) Good shoes for walking are must. Repelent Is good to have too (buy it in advance, as there is no shops, or you have to walk 1hour to place with some tiny shops). Quite a lot of moskitos as you have to understand there is a lot of vegetation and humidity. We also experienced storm which took out the electricity for almost a day, so count that it can happend as well. The place is prepared for it as it's happening regularly in the whole Island. Download maps.me if you don't have access to the internet for better orientation. Thanks a lot, we really loved it! :) Can only recommend.

Our recent days at Pousada Lagamar were absolutely amazing. The room where we stayed was simple and had an unbeatable view of the ocean and surrounding forest. Each morning we enjoyed a delicious Brazilian breakfast buffet. We love to hike, so we enjoyed hiking to Logoa Verde and snorkeled while we were there. George, at Pousada Lagamar also arranged a boat trip to Adventureiro and Meros. We swam with numerous tropical fish and sea turtles! I truly cannot wait to return to Ilha Grande and will definitely stay at Pousada Lagamar. All members of the staff were friendly and helpful.
