“Perfect for couples”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

Stayed as a couple (late 20s) from UK as an island break from Rio. Can't fault this accommodation. Staff incredibly helpful without being at all intrusive or annoying. Easy walk to the beach, about 5-10 min but nice to be out of the way of some of the hostel visitors. Room was better than expected and certainly as described, no surprises. Bedding was fantastic!!! Perfect break from the sometimes hectic pace of Brazil. Hello to Rennie and Rennie (the two hennies :) )

The place enabled very comfort and enjoyable stay at the island. The room was great, no bugs, air condition and everything was working perfect. Also the whole place was very beautiful.

Best part was the owner, "Rennie" who was very helpful, sympathetic and she knew all the best places where eat and where to go. She made the vacation even better.
As a much traveling couple we can definitely recommend this place to all!

Nothing bad to say, the price-quality is best, very good quality for modest price!

Ilha Grande is a truly beautiful place to visit and Aratinga Inn is the perfect base to do it from.

It is in a quiet location, rooms are spotlessly clean, breakfast is great, the grounds are really nicely done. The staff are all very friendly and professional. All the little things that make life so much easier on a holiday are thought of and provided free: beach towels, beach sarongs, day packs etc.

But above all, I can only echo all the other reviews praising Rennie. She is incredibly warm and welcoming and really does make it feel like you are coming home every time you come back. She is also a great source of information about the island and it is definitely worth listening to her tips, I guarantee they will make your day/hike/boat trip even more enjoyable.

Rennie is awesome, she really went out of her way to make sure we had all the information we needed about activities on the island. She really makes you feel like part of her family while you stay there. The property is well maintained, clean, has the little touches (umbrellas you can borrow, beach towels) which were really nice. The food for breakfast and tea was always excellent. Really have nothing negative to say about our stay.

You won't be disappointed if you choose the Aratinga.

We stayed at the aratinga inn for 4 days during the Easter break. Rennie is an excellent host and contributed (together with her staff) to our amazing experience of the island. She has the best tips on what to do and where to eat and drink. The chalets are very neat and comfortable and have all required amenities, but should you miss anything, Rennie can surely provide it to you. Aratinga inn is very well situated, just a few minutes from the shops and restaurants and the beach. We would definitely stay here again!

Rennie couldn't have been more helpful from the moment we enquired about booking. She was superbly organised, armed with all the information you may need for your stay in Ihla Grande. All staff were friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was good and plentiful, but the best time of the day was afternoon tea! Refreshing juices, fruits and cakes, to help you recover from a long day in paradise! Aratinga is beautiful, a mixture of apartments, and chalets, with separate lounge and kitchen areas. A little bit off the main drag, which means it is peaceful, with just the sounds of the island to entertain you. We came here at the start of our honeymoon, and took the honeymoon package, which included enough chocolate to see us through the rest of South America!

Room Tip: We stayed in Hibiscus, a beautiful little chalet with ensuite, and hammock on the porch!

My husband, two daughters ages 9 and 11 and I spent an absolutely delightful five nights at the Aratinga Inn last week. The accommodations, service and food could not have been better. I join everyone else singing the praises of the owner, Rennie, who cheerfully gave us terrific advice, had a ready supply of most things you could think of needing and was very kind to our children. Even though we had rain two of the six days, we found plenty of things to do, including taking advantage of the huge DVD collection for family movie evenings after dinners in town. The afternoon tea was a welcome and much looked forward to treat for my girls. Because the rooms are primarily designed for couples, we had to rent two rooms. This was a perfect arrangement for us and my husband and I enjoyed the view of the sea and the mainland in the distance from our room on the second floor. Highly recommend.
