“Best Pousada on Ilha Grande!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2011

Perfectly located right on the beach at the center of Abrao, conveniently placed near the best bars and restaurants on the island too, this was the best place to stay to explore Ilha Grande!! The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The rooms were exceptionally clean and spacious. The breakfast served the best local fruits and pastries. I visited with a group from Pace University in New York City. We studied sustainable business developments on Ilha Grande. Pousada Recreio Da Praia was really concerned with maintaining the environment on Ilha Grande. I would definitely stay here again on my trip back to Ilha Grande!

This is my 3rd year to visit Pousada Recreio da Praia. It is one of my favorites. The location is perfect right in the middle of Abrao and the staff are excellent and cordial. The breakfast is also great. Each year, I lead a trip of approximately 30 college students to Brazil to understand sustainable businesses. They also enjoy it and the price is very affordable.We are making a free website for sustainable businesses in Ilha Grande and will be adding Pousada Recreio da Praia because they serve traditional local foods, hire local people, have traditional architecture. Areas where they could improve are in recycling and using energy efficient light bulbs. Here is the website for Ilha Grande.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2010

We have just returned from Ilha Grande and really enjoyed staying at Pousda Recreio da Praia.

We had a room booked for 2 people and enjoyed a very large room that actually had a 3rd bed and in general felt spacious. The pousada's rooms has been recently refurbished and the look brand new incluing the bathroom that apparently also is being upgraded to a better shower system. The pousada is in the middle of town and right by the beach front with great views directly to the oceans from breakfast hall. The breakfast is good and has everything you need incl. fresh juice.

If you can't be bothered to go to the beach the pousada also has a pool with a recreation area incl. pool, fussball table etc.

All in all we had a fantastic stay and can only recommend that you stay here.
