The hotel is brilliant. It's built onto the rocks of the hill of Ilhabela, so the rocks appear in areas of the hotel lobby, and hallways. The stream and falls that splits the two sections of the hotel is surrounded by colourful bougainvillea, and orchids. Throughout are memorabilia, books, beer steins and collectibles the owners have amassed. It is immaculate throughout. The continental breakfast was amazing, tons to choose from. The bar, pool and beach facilities across the street was perfect. Also very well maintained and the service was extremely good and everyone was very pleasant. This is a perfect spot close enough to the "Villa" the small but bustling village and private as well. NB, do not attempt to visit the beaches in Castelhana in your own car. Rent a jeep, take a jeep, hitchhike a life from a jeep, but do not take a car.... it seems like you can make it but on the other side of the mountain, it's mud up to your thighs for days! But book the Mercedes, it's a great hotel!
