Gerard is a wonderful host and provides great tips and stories about the island. The atmosphere at the pousada is utter bliss. A bit away from the centre of the village, this place is perfect if you need to unwind. We suggest that you take in the island from a gently swaying hammock on the balcony.

We stayed in the Pousada Manaca and had a fabulous, relaxing time. The owner Gerard was very welcoming as were his staff. The rooms are basic but comfortable and clean and had everything you need, including a fridge and a gorgeous balcony to watch the world go by. The breakfast was amazing, everything you could want to start your day... More

Pousada Manaca is the perfect location to unwind and forget about your stresses. We arrived by boat from busy, bustling Rio and were dropped at the small town of Abraao. Pousada Manaca is a short stroll along the beach from the town, but far enough away that it feels separated and quieter. From our arrival we were welcomed with a... More

I was at Manaca Inn in September 2015 and had a wonderful experience. The location is perfect, 5 minutes from the pier and yet away from the confusion of all bars/restaurants.

We stayed here for 3 nights and we loved it. The breakfast is delicious, fresh orange juice and eggs made to order along with lots of other options.

This is a very nice Pousada on the beach in Ilha Grande. The breakfast is excellent and way better than most. Gerard, the French Owner, is always on hand to help and offer advice.

I booked Pousada Manaca after reading lots of positive reviews on Trip Advisor and details from Lonely Planet. The Pousada is located just to the left of the main pier and only takes about 5 minutes to reach, it is located on the beach front and away from the main bars/restaurants (nosier ones) so for me and my partner this...
