“Beautiful unique pousada, with the most welcoming owner!”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

This was our first time to Ilha Grande and Rennie the owner was so welcoming and gave us all the best guidance for where to go, what to do and the best restaurants on the island. Aratinga Inn is just beautiful, set just away from the main village but within easy walking distance the accommodation is lovely and staff so friendly. A real sanctuary. We will definitely go back there!

Rennie, the manager, was fantastic in all ways. She is very attentive and not only takes care of the place (which is very special) but also is the best guide for the island. We are very grateful to her. The place is calm and clean an sorrounded by vegetation, that makes a great atmosphere.

This was our first visit to Ilha Grande. Aratinga is a charming pousada just up the hill from the center of town. The staff is friendly and professional. It is clear that every detail is taken care of. The afternoon tea was a delightful surprise! Blazing fast wifi, which is quite unusual in Brazil. Rennie gave us great advice so that we made the most of each day and night on the island. Can't wait to return!

If I'd known how great the Aratinga Inn was, and how much there is to do on Ilha Grande, I would have happily spent longer than our 4 nights. From the moment you arrive, the owner, Rennie (Australian) makes you feel like a welcome family friend. She is very keen to make sure that you don't waste any time or money doing anything less than the best available on the island. The options are well documented and she is delighted to discuss anything in more detail. When you get back from a hike or a trip, she is genuinely keen to know what you think and to have feedback to pass on to future visitors.
The Inn is quite small - about 8 rooms . I wouldn't describe it as luxurious; the footprint of the property isn't that big, but the beds were super comfortable, the sheets high quality, Breakfast was copious and fresh, the afternoon cakes delicious and the rooms spotless. The garden areas are imaginatively planted and humming birds are encouraged next to the breakfast room with feeders. I think that it is worth the little extra for the new bungalows which have a bit more space than the old rooms, roomy terraces with a hammock and lovely new bathrooms. The staff were all smiling, friendly and helpful and those that didn't speak English responded happily to my sign language!
My teenagers were delighted with the extensive selection of DVDs to borrow. And the Wifi worked and was free.
Don't miss a massage - really excellent.
A great place to stay in the paradise that is Ilha Grande. Excellent value for money.

Room Tip: worth paying the extra for one of the two double deluxe chalet bungalows.

Aratinga Inn is a slice of heaven. Located on a small hill, you get a wonderful view of the ocean. The owner Renne is so welcoming and inviting. She really makes you feel at home. She was so helpful and offered suggestions for hikes, beaches, and restaurants. The room was spotless and the bed and sheets were amazing. Each afternoon there is tea time where coffee, tea, juice, cakes, and cookies are available all complimentary. Yum!! The breakfast was fantastic with many options to choose from. Renne was a wonderful host and we hope to return to Ilhe Grande and Aratinga Inn someday!!

My stay here with a friend was amazing! It was the perfect destination for "active relaxation" and the owner Rennie, is a caring and knowledgable hostess. She has great recommendations for restaurants and info for hikes and excursions, already written up in a visitor's book. Rennie even recommended and arranged a massage for us on a rainy day!
There was a mix-up in our reservation and we were upgraded to a chalet for a couple of nights and it was heaven! Breakfast is delicious and afternoon tea is perfect after a busy day of exploring.

Room Tip: Quiet except for the occasional noisy bird, but nothing you can do about that! Recommend upgrading t...
