Ilanga is a pleasant rustic pousada on the way of Tartaruga beach. It's about 05 minutes by foot from the beach, and 18 minutes long from the interesting downtown. The surroundings consist of a deep forest and a ugly neighbourhood.
The 7th room was very nice, and the WiFi reached the bed side. But the sheets and towels were stained. I made a complain to the manager, and he said they all were brand new (from november's 2012), although admitted there was a issue about laundry then. He promptly solved my problem providing new ones.
The breakfast was basic but o.k, and my suggestion of covering up the food with plastic utensils was immediately executed.
I wasn't bothered by mosquitos. It's only a matter of shut the windows after 4 p.m.
Return to Ilanga at night is only acceptable by car (taxis charge R$ 18 - fixed price for downtown), as the road is very dark.
There were a fine bar area and a nice gazebo facing the pool.
Finally, the managers - Rosana and Jackson - are really friendly, giving us good tips.
I had a good time there and I would return.
