“So nice like a summer Samba”
Reviewed 6 December 2010

We made our reservation via the site called hotels-ilhagrande.com.
And it was beyond our expectations! The pousada is situated just a little out of the city centre. It is really quiet and you can enjoy the beautiful birds in the intensely green garden around your cosy room. We liked everything; the breakfast, the music, the bathroom, it is all really nicely taken care off by the staff!! We sure will be back one day!

We found a small paradise next to a stream on the Big Island . An amazing place with amazing people . It has the luxuries of a 5 star hotel in a bargain or good price. It is a small area of conservation of the island also with its gardens and foliage around it. The gap in language may have been a challenge but the lovely people were understandable . We plan to return if all possible for the world cup in 2014 and Olympics in 2016. Thank you to our host.

Just Awful! As soon as we arrived at Riacho dos Cambucas, we (three adults) knew it was impossible to stay there. The smell of urine in room #7 (our room) was overwhelming. To make matters worse, the owner tried to say that it was the smell of the wood being wet. The smell was so strong that it literally made me sick. The smell was of animal urine that had seeped into the wood floors. The wood had been treated with verathane so there is no way the smell was caused by rain.
We were three adults and had booked the room as such, and paid for two nights in advance because it was Easter weekend (very busy time). Our room consisted of a double bed and a single bed with no walking space between the beds, no place to unpack, nothing else except a bathroom. The owner was very condescending to our concerns practically saying that it was all in our heads (the smell) and the size of the room was adequate for three adults. He was adamant that because it was Easter weekend, we would not find another place on the island. But within 15 minutes we found another place, and could not get any of our two nights' payment back although we only stayed one night.. We booked through Ilha Grande Adventures (also a mistake) and they were totally unhelpful regarding our concerns. Instead, their attitude was "oh well, too bad". Avoid this place unless you like the smell of rat urine.

  • Liked — Nothing. It was dirty, it was far to reach from the dock, it was too small and smelled of urine
  • Disliked — It was dirty, far from the dock/beach, noisy, too small and smelled of urine

Pousada Riacho dos Cambucas is very basic and not very clean. The owner talks a lot but does not do anything else about the property. There are cockroaches and rats in the rooms. The beds are very uncomfortable. And at night there is a big noise due to the old air-conditioning machines installed for every room, like a nuclear reactor!
