Grajagan Surf Resort
Ranked #6 of 51 Ilha do Mel B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 July 2013

The Grajagan is located on Praia Grande on lovely Ilha do Mel, a must go place when you are in Curitiba. It is definitely among the best pousada's on the island and because of the location very remote and silent. Service varies, depending whom they have currently hired. Be careful not to pick a room to close to the bar, it is an island and if you have a couple of guys hanging out on the bar it can get noisy. Cleanliness is a relative term as the island is wild, full of insects and of course do not expect to have no spiders, ants etc. During holidays it is getting insane expansive, but it is common everywhere across Brazil. Best travel time is off season, the islands service works. Avoid xmas/new year, beside skyrocekting prices the island reaches max capacity and there can be energy and water supply problems.

Beautiful island, no motorized vehicles! Nice little resort, extremely friendly staff. Location very good (on the beach). Take mosquito repellent, nature is beautiful, lots of water, and the morsuitos like that too! Beautiful waves for surf /body boards.

And the location is great! But what really pulled down was the lack of proper food: When you're by the ocean you certainly do not expect to eat pizza for two nights in a row... It was either that or pasta. No seafood. No coffee at night (but somehow they managed to find some for us, the staff was fabulous!). We were told to have dinner at a "very good" reastaurant next door - the MariSol, but don't go there! It was a café serving fish that had seen its sell by-date long ago.
The first room we had was tiny and the walls made of paper, but they changed us to another room which was very pleasant indeed.
The beach is huge, you never feel crowded and there are life guards on duty all day. The waves might look big, but they were gentle and swimming was a pleasure. We saw lots of people walking around with boards, but I never actually saw anyone surf - perhaps we were here for the wrong season?

Room Tip: Make sure you order the front rooms, they are much nicer. Upstairs have large balconies, downstairs...

i´ve been to ilha do mel quite a few times and stayed in all kinds of accomodations. If you´re not used to "root kind" accomodation, thi is the place. it´s affordable, confortable bed, clean bathroom, good food, cold bear. It´s placed at praia grande, away from the crowd and you can get one of the best time sleep in a life time. They have chairs and umbrella you can take to the beach, the only thing they could have would be a swimming pool, but that is ilha do mel ... you can´t ask too much.

We had a really hard time trying to decide where to stay on Ilha do Mel but finally settled on the Grajagan Surf Resort because we thought it would be the most romantic. First the positives, the location is awesome and can't be beat on the island (quiet and peaceful), the beach is only a few steps away and there are some really nice places to just chill out and watch the waves. The resort has a really fun atmosphere. There wasn't much going on while we were there (winter), but you could see how it could be a lot of fun in the summer (live bands, etc.). The owner was super nice, the breakfasts were awesome, and the pizza from the restaurant was good. With all this said, the place is a bit run down and the room left a lot to be desired. It was dark and damp and the bedding had massive stains and rips in it. A little overhaul would go a long way here. We were there during the cheap season and got a good deal, but if I paid anymore than I did I would have been very upset. If location is your number 1 priority, stay here. Otherwise, shop around.
