Breakfast was wonderful - the selection and the view across the beach & the sea! We even saw a hummingbird one day. The Island is beautiful. The pousada itself was spot on, it's owner & staff were friendly and very helpful (including local advice). The pousada is slightly further along the beach away from the busier part of the main...

We stayed here for 3 nights on our honeymoon in June. We originally booked for 2 and then added an extra night. We had the ocean view room for the first few nights then moved to the back of the pousada for the last night. Although both rooms were nice the ocean view one is the better option for not...

We spend 4 nights at Pousada Manaca at Ilha Grande and it was a really good experience. The location is perfect, excellent breakfast, close to the city, right next to the beach and with a really good restaurant next door. The owner is very helpful! We would definitely recommend this place to everyone going to Ilha Grande

We stayed 3 nights in this delightful little pousada which is located right on the beach, close enough to all the shops and restaurants but far enough away for complete tranquillity. We had a sea view room which was comfortable and clean and it was lovely to hear the waves crashing on the shore. The breakfasts were superb - fresh...

My husband and I spent 3 nights at the Pousada Manaca Inn. The location was great as we were able to walk there easily from the ferry (about a 5 min walk). The room was very tidy and had a balcony facing the water. It was nice to have A/C during humid days. There are several restaurants close by that...

That's because there are no cars on Ilha Grande. This Pousada is a very cozy place to stay while you explore the Ilha. Owned by a very friendly French gentleman with 38 years of island experience the Pousada is directly on Praia Abraão. It is a quick R$30 carteira legal ride from the dock in the village for your luggage...

Pros and cons: Pros: Gerard, the owner, is a gem. Very helpful and kind. The breakfast is amazing. The location is great Cons: Extremely expensive for what you get. Didn't sleep through the night once because the bed is so insanely uncomfortable. New mattresses would fix that immediately. Worst WiFi connection. Just get used to the fact that they basically...

The owner and staff are fantastic - very friendly, willing to help and provide recommendations and super responsive. Location is good - beachfront and a little ways from the main area so it's a bit quieter. Rooms are small and just OK...but they have fans and air conditioning, and a mini-fridge. The electricity went out two of the nights we...

We stayed at Pousada Manaca for 3 nights between Christmas and New Year's Eve. From the very beginning, Gerrard (owner) was very helpful. During the booking process, he was very responsive over email and communicated well in English. He even arranged a car for us from the airport which was very convenient. In fact, our luggage was lost in transit...
