The pousada is located on the beach right where the flexi boat arrives from Angra Do Reis, so it's very well positioned. We were given the room on top of first floor right at above the reception. The room was pretty small, and not super clean. There were traces of all the previous mosquitos killings on the wall. Breakfast was... More

Only thing I can dock this place for is price and having really weak water pressure but it's in a great location on the island with limited water supply so all in all not that much of a ding. The breakfast and staff are amazing, rooms spacious and GREAT LOCATION when you arrive to Abraao (the village) it's less than... More

We stay there for 3 nights. The posada is right on the beach and our room was nice and clean. The staff is very helpful, they speak English, French and Spanish. The breakfast is good and the restaurant is a creperie for dinner. The posada is close to the main pier. The electricity was out on the whole island when... More

Fantastic location, right on the beach and in the heart of Abraao. Reasonably priced, rooms are on the smaller side but ours had a private bathroom with hot shower (and cold, which was used more given the heat). AC didn't work so great in our room but was sufficient. Lovely garden surroundings and fairly sizeable breakfasts provided. The pousada also... More

This is a nice cute place on the beach. It takes 2 mins to walk from the main pier to this B&B. The breakfast is nice. The room and bathroom were clean. It has AC but no fan. The girl at the front desk was very helping. They even let us use their microwave when we wanted to heat some... More

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Pousada Tropicana opened in 1989 and was one of the first. Located beachside of Abraão in the center of the island's main village, the Pousada Tropicana offers you the opportunity to dive in clear waters, take a relaxing walk, breathe the pure air of the woods, or else make the true adventures trails. If you are still not satisfied, you may chill in the sand with a drink, eating fried shrimp. All to the accompaniment of experienced guides. ... more   less
