This was the first hotel I stayed at on my trip to Brazil. It was very authentic and absolutely breath taking. It is located in a prime location. The only draw backs is that the wifi did not work well and the AC unit in my room did not work very well, but overall a great stay!

In the center of town facing the beach, this pousada is a really nice place. The rooms are simple but very clean. There is a small pool, which is very nice. Breakfast was good. At night it's nice to sit outside in front of the pousada's restaurant and enjoy a great Caipirinha.

This was the first stop on my Brazilian vacation and Ilha Grande is the whole package, but Recreio da Praia is a very comfortable little hotel and the complementary breakfast is amazing with a beautiful view of the beach. This lost just one point (it would be less than on if possible) because of the WiFi, which was almost non-existent.... More

This Pousada was really charming and is located in a very convenient location. The beach is just a couple of steps from the lobby. Restaurants, ice cream shops, and a variety of small business were so close-by. It is a very casual hotel and offered exceptional size rooms with great amenities, including air-conditioning, a recreational area with a pool table,... More

There is also many plants inside that create a fresh atmosphere in the morning. The bed is decently comfortable and I have a awesome rest. Right outside the Pousada is bunch of shop... More

The rooms were very clean and the staff was very friendly, but the best part was the location. We were probably 50 yards from the beach! The pousada is near a lot of restaurants and has a breakfast every morning. Everything was great except the Wifi was a little spotty.

Wow! What a great location! It takes no effort to go to the beach or any of the restaurants in Ilha Grande. Pousada Recreio da Praia was only a few feet from everything! The pousada has nice sized rooms with well working air conditioners which helped a New Yorker like myself adapt to being in South America. Wifi didn't work... More

The location was just a few feet from the beach and in a very calm area on Ilha Grande. They have an early curfew, but nearby stores stay open late. Staff was always available and willing to help. They were able to accommodate up to three people per room in many cases. Breakfast options were vast and was within walking... More

This pousada's location was so convenient; it was not too far from the dock and it was right across the street from the water. The rooms were nice, clean and cozy but the beds were a bit stiff. After a long day of activities, once you laid on the bed the stiffness was easily forgotten. The pool area was nice... More
