For starters I should say there was essentially nothing wrong with my stay. The air-con works well, the bed is comfortable, location is right on the water and hot water pressure is good. Beyond that I can't say I liked the place because it has no charm. White tiles everywhere and fluorescent lighting gives a clinical look. Breakfast was reasobable though I did not really like the pastries. Internet was extremely slow but I suspect this will be a problem everywhere on this island.
After all this, everyone must visit Ilha Grande. It is a spectacular piece of unspoilt paradise. Stay wherever you can but definitely go.
We stayed here at the end of August, not a busy season for Brazil as it is winter there. Booked the hotel for 4 days as it was one of the few hotels we could find with rooms for 3 people. It is a more than decent, actually pleasing Posada central located but there is nothing extraordinary about it. Staff is friendly, we had an excellent stay. It is also affordable but if you are after bargains, you could probably find cheaper, less well run places in Ilha Grande especially in offseason and if you risk it going directly there without any prearrange hotel. Probably not advisable during the high season as you might not find anything.
