We checked into The hostel and were immediately captivated by it's down to earthness, The proximity to The Beach in Abraão and The friendly host, Edson. When we lost The key to The room later that Night and weren't able to get back in to The club where it was He set heaven and earth motion to help us get it back and was super cool about it even though we woke him up in The Middle of The Night. In our darkest hour he even moved up some mattresses for us so we could sleep on Them and tried like a thousand different spare Keys for our room to help us. Fortunately we got The key and he was still super cool. Even if this hostel wasn't the cozy little Pearl with excellent breakfeast that it is, it would still be worth going here just to Meet Edson. He speaks portuguese, spanish and english (even though he insists he is terrible at it)! Worth a visit!

We stayed in room Nr 3 (ocean view) and it was great. The room had a wonderful balcony with two chairs and a table and a great ocean view. The Small room had a nice dubbel bed, refrigerator, AC, fan, shelves for storage and the bath room was nice and clean with a shower. Breakfast buffe was included and you had scrambled eggs, bread, ham, cc
Included and had cheese, fruits, juices, coffee/tea, cakes, breads. The staff was attentive, glad and helpful. Their english was poorly but with help by Google translate and bode language you manage to make your self understood. If you know a little Spanish it helps!
If I come back to Ilha grande I would stay here again because of it's location (50m from the beach and 5 min walk to the town Abrao, the staff and service. I love Ilha Grande and I wouldn't had that great experienceof of my time on the Island if it wasn't for staff, location and the views and atmosphere of this specific Pusada. They care of you and they care about the Pusada.
Good value for the money.

The owners were very friendly and welcoming, the place had a very chilled and warm feel about it which was perfect. We had a great room with a balcony overlooking the beach. The location is good at the calmer end of the beach and just set back from it. I would definitely stay here again.

Clean,calm, and well located. About 50m from the beach, i recommend to pay one of the porters to transport lugages from the peet to the pousada located on the left end of Abraao beach (10'walk in sand..)
Having stayed in other pousadas without A/C and foam mattress i was nicely surprised. Of course the price is high but worth it on an island. Good breakast also

We arrived in the harbour in the rain, they forgot to pick us up. There are no cars ore streets here so you have to pull your lugage to the pousada through the sand and water. Arriving there was our reservasion not in the book. 30 minutes later the girl from the reception showed us our total travel programm so it was no problem and we could stay. One hour later she came to check our names again. No appolicies for any of these actions. She doesn't speak any english. We arranged a towlorry to get our luggage to the harbour, there was no innitiative from the pousada to arrange this. We travel with 40 kg of luggage and the pousada is not near the harbour. The rooms were nice, and the atmosphere relaxt, a bit too relaxt. We would not recommend this hotel.
