This pousada is completely fine. Nice that it has a swimming pool. Quite value, good location if you want to stay close to the pier. Lacks charm though! I stayed here with two young children for a weekend, and found the location very convinient for such a short stay. I do however prefer the pousadas that are a bit away...

Lovely little Posada just minutes walk from the harbour side where the ferry docks. Our room was clean and pleasant, right by the pool area. Breakfast was ok - the toastie machine was the highlight. The staff don't speak English, but Spanish will get you by there. There's no wifi at all, but this is to be expected on the...

Just got back from Ilha Grande and stayed at this excellent Pousada for 2 nights. I wasn't expecting much considering that it's on an island with limited resources, but it had everything we needed. The staff were friendly and helpful, the wifi connection was good and reliable, the rooms were very spacious, modern, comfortable with a/c, hot showers and a...

I was in Ilha Grande last March and when I was there, I stayed at Pousada Recreio da Praia. This was one of the nicest hotels that I ever stayed in because it has a swimming pool, free breakfast, a comfortable bed and it is in a good location, right on the boardwalk. The closer you are to the boardwalk,...

The Pousada is fine and the rooms are ok. It's quite big, like a residence, and you won't feel a familiar hospitality. In particular we had a bad experience with breakfast: we prepared two small sandwiches to take away and we have been charged of them without any previous advise. In such an amazing place like Ilha Grande you can...

Pros Great location on Abraao. Very near the port so perfect if you don't have a backpack, and not far to take swim or get a boat to other islands. Room clean with fridge and small back patio. Tv- but no english speaking channels. Good buffet breakfast. Pool. Cons Tempremental/slow wifi and only works in reception area. Can't take any...

I have just spent a week at Pousada Recreo da Praia at Ilha Grande. The place is just what you can expect from a Pousada at a Brazilian island, no stars are applicable. You just need to find out if the place is clean, spacious, sunny, comfortable, and well located. Yes, Pousada Recreo da Praia has all of these qualities,...

We got a boat from Ma to the island of llha Grande and thought we would have to walk lots to find our Pousada. Within 2mins of walking we spotted it. When we arrived we were early for check in so walked around the island which was cool. The Pousada grounds was very impressive like a mini island on an...
