The best thing about Ouro Verde is Rita and Roderigo, every morning at breakfast they would ask us what we were planning for the day, and give us really useful information about what trails to take, and how long they were, where to get boats etc. We felt very welcome and the place had a lovely atmosphere.
The room itself was basic but immaculately clean, the solar powered shower was excellent, with powerful hot water. The only slight negative was that the room felt a little damp, I am sure that with the position, in the rain forest, this comes with the territory and was worth it to be in amongst the trees and out of town, especially on Easter weekend when the village was rammed.

Room Tip: We did meet another couple who were staying and we all felt our room larger and lighter. So if you c...

We stayed in Ouro Verde for three nights in March. The pousada had everything we needed, it's a short walk out of the "center" so very peaceful surrounded by lush greenery. The best thing about Ouro Verde though are the hosts Rita and Rodrigo who are very nice people and give you detailed tips about things to do in the island. Also on the plus side, even if you don't speak Portuguese, English and Spanish are spoken so you can have interesting conversations with Rodrigo and Rita :) The room was pretty basic but very clean, and the homemade breakfast was very yummy!

Located only a short walk from the pier where all the action is, the Pousada Ouro Verde is a pieceful little paradise in the beautiful forest of Ilha Grande. Rodrigo and Rita are the perfect hosts - not only for their yummy home made breakfast and great tips for the island. They also sit and talk with their guests and made us feel a little like family. Oure Verde will be our first choice when we visit Ilha Grande again and would recommend a 100% - you won't regret staying with Rodrigo and Rita!

very pleasant place and helpful staff, nice breakfast. The Pousada location sign should be better visible from street/walkpath Rua do Bicão. On the first attempt we walked directly upwards and did not turn left on the right paths intersection.

From when we arrived at the pousada we were greeted with friendly smiles and an overwhelming sense of comfort. We managed to get a sneeky peek at breakfast and it looked incredible all freshly baked at the pousada!! This review will be different from the rest as the story goes we checked in to our confortable room and went out for the day (all the information of the island was given to us through verbal communication and photographs) just one element of how the hosts go beyond to make your trip a success. However, we debated as to whether we had checked into the right place as it looked different from the pictures. As we returned the hosts expressed their confusion too and as it turns out he has called me Rachael in the morning (which is my middle name) so I had just agreed but we had in fact checked into the wrong place. They found the situation really funny and showed no resentment for us having caused a confusion for the real guests (Rachael) that had checked in later in the day. With this in mind, I cannot recommend this place enough, the good nature of the hosts, the tranquil setting and the breakfast that looked so delicious!! We will stay here next time!! I wish you both all the happiness. Ashleigh and Simon

Amazing stay! We had to book last minute when we wanted to extend our time on the island and the owner (who has the best smile in Brazil) managed to fit us in. We wish we had stayed here from the start... the owner gave us very detailed tips about walks around the island and excellent places to eat. I miss morning breakfast with the homemade breads and jams and will always miss the smile. Definitely recommend, Charlie & Annabelle

We were staying for 4 nights over new year, probably the busiest time of the year. Because of the long sunshine periode (very unusual for this period of the year) there was a water shortage in the whole town. We as guests in Ouro Verde did't feel any of this and had water for the shower. We had a very quite and nice stay in the lovely pousada in the middle of the forest with the great and helpful hosts Rodrigo and Rita and some cute little monkeys that came begging for food at breakfast.
The five minutes walk uphill to get to the pousada didn't bother us at all, but we like to walk ;)
