Stayed here 11 nights with three grown up sons. Lovely place and great staff. Rooms clean and modern, view is amazing, breakfast has everything you need. Every morning (before 10am) we took kayaks and saw turtles (100% success) around the pier of the next beach along (towards town). Turtles come to beach outside hotel around 5pm, this may all be...

Idyllic quiet location with beautiful lawn and beach in front. Rooms with a porch viewing over the bay. Friendly owner and personnel. Good breakfast. Boat shuttle service from and to village. It is clean, tidy and well maintained. No drinking water from tap, Difficult walk to village and only during daylight. The biggest disadvantage of this place is that none... More

One thing to note before choosing a place to stay on Ilha Grande is that there are no hotels but guesthouses, which are called pousadas so don't expect any luxury accommodation when coming here. Also, make sure to bring mosquito repellent as there are lots on the island. The pousada Portal do Sol is about 5-10mins away from the man... More

Ilha Grande is a place hard to reach. But pousada Portal do Sol was our reward. A small boat will wait for you in Abraão harbour warf to reach your final destination. Located in the bay, facing harbour and town of Abraão, the place is rather small, so quiet compared to busy town, and has a wonderful view on Pico... More

Summary: - Without just cause, the hotel cancelled our reservation midway through our stay. - Without our knowledge, while we were off the property, the hotel rummaged through our room, threw our belongings in plastic bags, gave our room to another guest, and (since they failed to change room keycode) I at one point walked in on a new female...

My wife and I stayed one night here, as our original hotel had been double-booked by Booking.com. The location of Portal do Sol is obviously great, with sweeping views across the bay, but the rest is something of a let-down. Our room at the end of the property had a bad smell hanging around it (think toilets), and the door... More

We stayed here for 6 nights having spent 5 nights in the village. A brilliant choice. The rooms are large enough, with a luxurious bathroom (huge shower) & a large balcony metres away from the beach. A hammock would have been perfect here... The beach is not really used by anyone else other than guests. We saw a few kayaks... More
