After seeing the high reviews we booked here for our wedding anniversary trip. Very upsetting experience. No receptiveness, cold, grumpy people. First we paid R$450/ night and were told there was only one room left when booking, when there was actually at least 10 rooms available! Second, the reception was uninterested and unhelpful. Deceiving site description makes it look the...

The good reviews this place receives are probably because of its location (and due to the fact that people who are traveling to Ilha Grande, this paradise, are prompt to enjoy things). In reality this hotel is hugely OVERPRICED. At first it may impress but the good impression will not last long - staff is rude and seem disgruntled, rooms...

The good point (yes, only one) first - the hotel is extremely well located as it is in the centre of the main Ilha Grande town and easy to get everywhere. However this did also mean that we heard live street music late into the night as walls were thin! However, many bad points made for a disappointing stay -...

I didn't really like this hotel, but I'm not sure if any of my problems with it are reasonable. I mainly just didn't get a good impression. The staff were fine but not overly friendly. The breakfast was good, but not amazing. The pool area was very nice, as was the breakfast area. I think my main issue was the...

The location is perfect - you are practically on the beach and the sofas at the front of the hotel are shaded from the sun and very comfy and make you feel very welcome. There are 2 downsides - wifi - it's pretty rubbish on Ilha Grande anyway but you are only allowed one code for the room which means...

Spacious and comfortable room, right on the beach front and close to everything. Great facilities including pool and sauna. Fantastic breakfast. I will definitely go here again the next time I go to ilha grande. Staff were polite and helpful.

I loved this hotel. The location was great - right on the beach in the main area of Ilha Grande. Easy walking distance from the port. So close to restaurants and bars. The staff were really nice and helpful and a few spoke English so that was helpful. Free wifi worked fairly well. The breakfast was really good. Hot showers....

We loved this posada for the location looking over the bay and bang in the centre of town. The common spaces are incredible: sofas overlooking the sea, tropical gardens lit up at night, a steam room to use after a long day trekking, a pool.... Rooms meanwhile are pretty average, they are fine for sleeping (although you need a sleep...

It was a nice Pousada to stay in, great location, near to restaurants and bars. The people who work there were really nice and tried to help all the time, although they don´t give you maps or indications to visit the island, so you need to go to a tourist center and ask everything there.

This hotel has something i found very endearing and unique: in their welcome room, they have a little table with not only the standard (usual) free coffee, but also free cake! Delicious and homemade, it was there every day. I like the hotel very much, the pretty balcony with posts and curtains is lovely.
