Reviewed 22 August 2017

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at Itapemar hotel. The hotel is located in front of the beach just across the street, and within walking distance to the historic city center of 'Ilhabela'. Our apartment was very spacious, good decor, very clean an tyde. The whole property is very well maintained, and the gardens surrounding the buildings are also very impressive. The front desk staff was very friendly and courtious, as usual. The hotel restaurant was exceptional: the breakfast buffet was good, and for dinner we enjoyed a wonderful dish which was recommended by our waiter, Mr. Paulo, a competent and very kind waiter. His recommendation: grilled whiting fish fillet with vegetables (i.e., filé de badejo).

This is my favorite Hotel in Ilhabela because of its location (walking distance to the city center), because it´s right in front of a calm beach, has excellent service, good wifi, great breakfast, excellent areas for adults and also for children, and also I love the orchids they have in several of the trees in the property.

Room Tip: Standard room - Second floor facing the gardens and not the parking lot. Luxury room, the one on the...

Nice Room, clean, secure, main issue is that the curtains are see through, so at night people outside can actually see through your curtains into the room when they walk by.
Hot water didn't work in the shower and pressure was spluttering, so my wife was walked upto a room on the far side of the complex to take a shower on the morning we were attending a wedding to have her shower. Not good enough in my opinion for a room charging such a high price, not to have running hot water coming to the shower.

Location: Close by to the main village, could walk in 8 minutes and find bars, restaurants, coffee shops local church and shops. Beach across the street from hotel.

Amenities: Beautiful rooftop pool with view of the water. Pool was nice and bar beside pool. Tennis court on site was in good condition. Nice bar at the hotel right at the front with lovely outdoor area facing out to the water. Great place to relax with a drink. Wifi never worked in the hotel, extremely poor wifi which in this day and age makes no sense. the only place wifi seemed to work is in the bar, which compels you to buy a drink there if you go to use the wifi. Better wifi should be available in the rooms.

Upon check in we were never told anything about bar and restaurant options on site, times of available meals, or any other hotel amenities available. Everything we found out was through waling around the property. Check in was basically "Name? ID? Here's your key". Not very hospitable.
On the morning of the wedding we were attending, we gave in some shirts to be ironed and they said that they didnt want to iron them. My Brazilian wife had to speak to them sternly in Portoguese to convince them to iron the clothes. Cant understand the issue, when they advertise laundry facilities in the room.
On the morning of checkout, we were presented with our bill for the laundry and we asked about a discount for the inconvenience of having to go to another room in order to shower and were told that there would be no discount for this. We were quiet angry about this and mentioned that we had no wifi and no hot water and were quiet upset, the receptionist then said that he would discount is a bottle of water from the minibar!! Really??? a bottle of water??? To make this even worse - WE NEVER EVEN HAD A BOTTLE OF WATER FROM THE MINIBAR!! In general, hotels have a concept called SERVICE RECOVERY, where by they try to make up for bad experiences for guests. The service recovery at this hotel does not exist and we never once even got an apology!!
Bar - drinks got charged to my room without me being asked if I would like to pay with cash, credit or room charge. My intetion was to pay with cash and this was even in my hand as the barman gave me a room charge sheet to sign. I recommend staff ask method of payment in future!

Standout staff members: None really stood out and left a lasting impression! Maybe one young guy who seems to be there just to help with luggage works hard, quiet guy but very helpful and humble.

In conclusion, a lovely area, lovely building, but service seriously lacking! This hotel is more interested in $$$$$$'s than good service!!
