My stay here was very pleasant. The rooms were very cozy and homey. My wife and I had an amazing time on the island and the food is great also. I would recommend couples, families, and singles to stay here.

If you are looking for comfortable, friendly and welcoming place, look no further. Feels like staying at a friends home rather than a hotel, and that is the kind of experience I look for. Great for families. Fantastic value, great service and hospitality. I will definitely visit ilhabela and stay at Caravela Pousada again!!

The hotel isn't terrible, but certainly overpriced. It is rated as a 3 stars hotel, and I've been to 2 stars hotel that were nicer and had better amenities. I am sure that for the same price I've paid I could've found a much better bargain on the island. In order to be fair and close the review with the...

The owner speaks...

Comfy chalets, a great central location for exploring the island, and most of all extremely helpful and friendly staff. No problem for us to have a takeaway and watch a film at the Pousada one night when we didn't feel like going out. Very good value as well - couldn't ask for more!

Our stay in Caravela Pousada was wonderful. Unfortunately in the week we were staying here, the weather wasn't that good, but our beautiful apartment, the beautiful surroundings and especially the very good care by the owner (Thiago) made it very worthwhile. Caravela is very convenient located on walking distance from the ferry and our apartment was very clean and cosy...

If you´re looking for a beautiful and quiet place to stay close to the big city of Sao Paolo you should go to the island of Ilhabela. We stayed there at Caravela Pousada at the end of our travel and had the feeling of beeing at home. The accomodation is located in short walking distance to the ferry and has...

“If the hotel is completely booked, you will get a room across the street in the "annex". These are clean, but maybe less preferable than the regular rooms.”
