The pousada is located at the very best beach/central spot in the harbour of the village with an own creperie by the entry. The breakfast was allright and the rooms aswell. Nothing special in any way except location.

My boyfriend and I stayed here the 12th-14th of January, 2016. The pousada is located near the main pier in Abraao and is well within walking distance of it. It looks exactly as pictured, and has a great little restaurant attached to it. Our room was decently sized, and had an air conditioning unit which was a huge plus for... More

This is a 2* accommodation. The rooms are clean and nicely decorated but fairly basic. For the usual short say in Ilha Grande, you probably don't need much more. The staff here are great, the reception and manager were friendly and helpful which made the stay very enjoyable. Thanks goes to Christine in reception.

Beautiful rooms at a reasonable price. Dodgy wifi but to be expected all over the island due to remoteness. Great hospitality and generally a good quality pousada. Would definitely stay again. Only issue would be to maybe include netting on windows to stop bugs coming in. It would be nice to have the window open at night.

Spent few days in paradise: Ilha Grande. A couple of friends told me to stay there as the welcome is friendly, rooms are simple and cosy, breakfast with sea view. At this time of the year the island is almost empty, ao I coild enjoy the pousada and trips around the island by boat and hiking. The front desk is... More

Nice little pousada which is very close to the arrival pier (1 min walk), and close to all the main restaurants/shops in the town. Helpful reception staff, but our room wasn't cleaned on our first night and the air conditioning unit definitely needs replacing. Sounded like an aircraft taking off. Slightly ruined the ambiance of the stunning Ilhe Grande. Nice... More

The reception staff were very friendly and kind and always had a friendly smile. Location was great but I was disappointed in the cleaning service and the air-conditioning. I expected a higher standard of cleaning in the bathroom. The air-con was old and did not work very well. The breakfast was very good.

Nice Pousada, owned by a french talking people kind and funny, close to the beach and the shops. The only "bémole" is the restaurant, at this moment mainly offering "crêpes à la française", nevertheless, a lot of restaurants have terrasses on the beach front road,not far from the Pousada Tropicana, where you can discover Brazilian food!

Very much an authentic Ilha Grande pousada — a charming little compound just off of the pier in the center of town — that is also comfortable, safe, and clean. The rooms are nothing fancy, but serviceable; the beds are a bit hard. Many rooms face into nice little courtyards with benches good for reading; some guests did yoga there.... More
