Casa Bonita
Ranked #35 of 96 Ilha Grande B&B and Inns
Reviewed January 2, 2012

We stayed at the Casa Bonita over Christmas this year, and we are so glad we did. We had found it on Trip Advisor. We paid our 50% deposit by Pay Pal in advance to secure the reservation (although you can pay on site with credit cards, it is very difficult to do this remotely in Brazil for some reason). We were a bit concerned when we arrived on the island and asked at the tourist information office for directions - the girl working there had never heard of it! Luckily, we had the phone number with us and she phoned the pousada. The friendly and helpful owner, Eliane (who speaks English perfectly), met us on the way and escorted us there.

Casa Bonita is a short way up the hill from the main town of Abraao. This turned out to be a very good thing. Abraao is a very busy little town, particularly during the day when the cruise ships park just off shore and the tourists come pouring off to fill the streets. While only a five minute walk from the town, being at the Casa Bonita was like being in another world. A beautifully designed spot with plenty of outdoor space, it was like being in the middle of the jungle. Beautiful trees and foliage all around.

We are a family of four with 2 teenagers and Eliane gave us a "wing" of the pousada to ourselves. We had two rooms, connected by a short (5 step flight of stairs), with a private balcony for our use. The rooms were clean and comfortable, with both air conditioning and overhead fans, as well as small fridges (very helpful for keeping snacks and drinks). Breakfast outside every day was simple but very good quality, with fresh bread, cheese, ham, freshly-made juices and fruit and cakes.

Eliane was extremely helpful in providing guidance on different excursions and hikes, and we enjoyed every day to the fullest. As we were there for Christmas Eve, we also enjoyed sharing in the intimate celebration her family put on for the guests that night.

We were at the Casa Bonita for five days and would have loved to stay longer. I would highly recommend it as a pleasant, comfortable and peaceful place to stay in Abraao, great for families and couples alike.

Casa Bonita is a very nice option at the outskirts of Abrao (trust me, it's a good thing!) A few minutes from the "city centre" you find this very quiet, clean and sweet pousada-basically in the midle of the jungle.
Well worth the money, a great breakfast ( still can't forget the fresh juice!) and cute rooms with Air conditioning and fridge. Staff was friendly and helpful, only too bad pousada was full so we had to move after only 3 nights.

Room Tip: Book well in advance!

Casa Bonita is in our opinion the best place to stay in Ilha Grande. It is not located at the beach, but som 5 minutes away. However, it is nice and quiet and you get to feel that you almost live in the jungle - you can hear and see a variety of birds and you run into the occassional frog at night. The rooms are very nice and clean, and the building is quite special itself. There is a very relaxed atmosphere and owner and staff are very kind and helpful.
