Reviewed September 24, 2012

we stayed at a room on the beach front. it has great views from the balcony. we enjoyed sitting on the rocking chair feeling the breeze coming through the window. meme is very helpful, the breakfast is good and has a variety of choices. one of the best value stay in town. it is also family friendly. during our stay, a family with young baby was also there, they seemed to have had a good time. 10-15 min walk away from the centre square and the dock.

Room Tip: ask for the rooms facing the ocean

We had a great few days at Pousada Ancoradouro. The location is right on the beach, about 5-10 minutes from the center of town and near some good restuarants. That means it is quiet and close so some smal, secluded beached away from the main bay. The owner, Meme is very firendly, speaks english and was helpful in arranging transfers, pick ups from the boat, and suggesting walks and things to do. The rooms are small but clean and comfortable and the breakfest is good.

This pousada is lovely! Right on the beach front. We got last room available at the back of the complex, at the rear garden for a discount and was really good and very quiet! Very clean and nice room. Breakfast is great, big variety of fresh fruit every morning! The staff are all extremely helpful and friendly. Ana and Meme will help you recommending excursions, walks, beaches and best places to eat out. They are really warm people and will help you out in everything you need. Trully recommend this place! This island is so beautiful and unspoilt.

Room Tip: We had the rear room at the back garden and was very good!

Stayed at this wonderful pousada during Christmas - it was fantastic. The staff, very helpful, making you feel apart of their family. We had a beachfront room, and it was great, clean, nice large size, and with a fantastic view. The location of the pousada is the big plus here - right on the beach and at the quieter end.

If travelling to Ilhe Grande from Rio by bus - this is the best tip I can offer - rather then getting off at Angras Dos Reis to get the boat across - get off at Conceicao De Jacarei - it will save you 45 mins on the bus and another 30 mins on the crossing to Ilha Grande - and its the same price - boats leave each hour and less busy

Room Tip: Beachfront upper level

I can't say enough about this place....the people, the location, the food, all were absolutely wonderful. I felt as though I was staying in a paradise with beloved family members only the family members were the Ancoradoura staff! There is nothing the staff would not do to help you make your stay as enjoyable as possible. I could go on about the beauty of the location which was truly wonderful, the sumptuous breakfast s with wonderful fruits and fruit juices, the simple but extremely clean rooms with wonderful views of the ocean, but what I remember and cherish most about Ancoradoura is the kindness and helpfulness of the staff. Meme is the best! Go, you will not be disappointed.

I stayed in a beach-front room with a friend for three nights and it was wonderful. 5 minute walk from the village and an amazing view of the harbor. Very clean and comfortably cool. The staff struggle with English but they have a translating program on the computer so we made it work. PLUS, after I left, I lost my wallet in Rio. A saint found it and the only way to find me was the receipt from the Pousada. The Pousada staff went out of their way to get in touch with me and help me (thankfully) reunite with my wallet. Above and beyond.

As an added note: it was kind of hard to get to the island until we found a Rio transfer service through GreenToad.com. $50 US each way and much faster and less stress than the public transport options (and actually a bit less expensive).

Room Tip: ocean view room wasn't much more expensive and AMAZING view
