“Charming Pousada”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2012

We met a lot of nice people, nice breakfest, nice ping pong table. Great staff and Roger is a gem, very helpfull and gave us excellent advices for trips in the island. Pousada is simple but very convenient and great price! U can't go wrong. Internet connection in the island is not good but who cares about internet when u see this paradise!!

We loved staying at the Pousada D'Pillel!! The rooms were very basic, but really, you're there to go hiking around the island, not lounge out in your room. The rooms were clean and had great views from the balcony back into the jungle. It can get a little loud at night, but that's only because you are so close to the jungle and, when the animals come out at night, they tend to be a bit noisy. The staff is super-friendly and always willing to give you advice on your plan for the day. We had an amazing time and, if we are lucky enough to return to Ilha Grande someday, we'll definitely return to Pousada D'Pillel.

This is by no means a 5 star hotel, but for the price we paid we got a small but clean room, with a balcony and hammock overlooking their pretty garden. This in our books was pretty good value!

The pousada had lots of board games (backgammon...) and DVDs available free of charge for its guests to use in their in-room TV / DVD players. There was also a ping pong table. The weather wasn't great when were there and the pousada's staff were quick to provide us useful raincoats (and umbrellas if we had wanted) for our jungle hike.

Breakfast consisted of the usual offering (bread, fruit, coffee / tea, cake) and was solid.

The location is central, but a few streets behind the main beach-side street.

All in all, we would stay there again. Suggest you do too if you are on a budget as I'm sure you can do much much worse!
