We recently stayed at Sagu Mini resort for 9 days for our honeymoon, and had a wonderful tine. Really can't fault the resort, it was clean and well maintained, the gardens were lovely and the staff were all extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel was just far enough away from Abraao to feel very secluded, but close enough that a... More

We chose Sagu for our honeymoon on Ilha Grande. We are discriminating travelers and Sagu delivered impeccably on all fronts. The location was ideal: a few minutes walk from the only town, but completely private, so we could relax and experience an unspoiled rainforest environment while overlooking a quiet azure bay with sea turtles coming to visit the resort every...

We rented out the entire Sagu Mini Resort for 4 days in May 2009 for our wedding. At the end of the four days, we and our guests were very satisfied, even the very picky and demanding ones. Strong points: -beautiful and well maintained facilities right up against the rain forest for the most part -most rooms had a great... More

Do not stay here. There are a hundred other pousadas in IG with a better location that are much cheaper. The transfer price quoted in our confirmation email increased significantly when we tried to book it from Rio, so we arranged our own transportation. When we got to the dock, there was no one from Sagu around, and we had... More

denisVentiane_Laos, owner at Sagu Mini Resort, responded to this review

I must contest the review of Girl-Lawyer for the fact that many of the allegations are the result of facts that is not possible to detail in order not to contradict the guidelines required by Trip Advisor management responses. The Sagu Mini Resort is situated slightly detached from the village of Ilha Grande, Abraão. To get there you walk along... More

This is a delightful small hotel on Ilha Grande. The island is very much tailored for backpackers and this hotel breaks that mould. It isn't a large luxurious complex but a lovely quaint small hotel right by the sea and just a short stroll from a few beaches. We had booked the transfer from the airport in Rio and having... More

If you want to relax with a book or three in a hammock, looking out on breathtakingly beautiful scenery, then this is the place to stay. Accommodation is simple but comfortable, the owner is a tad gruff but very helpful, and the staff are a joy (especially Agatha in the restaurant). Dozens of restaurants are within 10-15 minutes walk, none... More

Top notch accommodations, great view, secluded location but close to town, clean, modern, european. Owned by an Italian and run with his daughter. When I was there, Angie was managing the place and she was outstanding. Found me a room even though I was a walk-in, was attentive, interesting and very friendly. Plus, she spoke perfect english.

We stayed at Sagu Mini Resort for five days in November 2008 and loved it. The room was spacious, delicate and clean. We had a big room with two floors, two bedrooms and a 20 m2 balcony.

I was not at all impressed with Sagu, and the unjustified price makes the choice to stay there sting even more. Firstly, the location ended up being more a burden than a blessing. The tours, shops, restaurants, nightlife etc are all a 20 minute walk away, and that walk involves varying depths of beach water, littered and soiled paths etc... More
