“Perfect getaway spot”
Reviewed 17 February 2014

We stayed there in February 2014 and it was lovely. Especially the view to the sea, the quietness and atmosphere of the island that just reaches to the pousada. Though the pousada is a bit out of the centre village, it is only a short walk along the beach. And there are just few steps down to the beach, where is very nice beach restaurant as well. Service was friendly and nice. It is a perfect place to stop during your holiday if you need a little peace and quiet

Reviewed 18 January 2014

Power on the island went out two out of the three nights of our stay in January which means it is extremely hot with no air conditioning in the middle of summer. This is not at the fault of the lodge owners necessarily but a generator or warning that this might happen would have been helpful as it seemed the entire island was used to power outages quite often. The actual pousada is beautiful with great views and breakfast provided every morning but unfortunately was not the relaxing retreat we were hoping for. Our check in was also a bit unorganized as it was difficult to get an email response to confirm our reservation and we were even told we did not have a room booked! Make sure someone confirms your booking in advance as you will need someone to meet you at the boat dock to get your luggage up to the pousada and lead you to the right place as there are no cars on the island. That said, once we were there, the hotel manager was very helpful in providing recommendations and helping coordinate travel but overall a bit disappointing.

In march 2013 we decided to book this pousada for our anniversary, 1 week in january 2013. We agreed for the price and we gave them my credit card detail and in march we got the confirmation from the pousada. Last week, considering that we have our flight the 1st january we write them to ask info about how to reach the pousada and the manager of Pousada, Mario, told us that our reservation there is not anymore.. When we asked why this happen and what we can do, he just not replied anymore to our mail. I travel a lot around the world, but this is the 1st time that I found this kind of people.. rude and arrogant. He ruined my anniversary and he obliged us to change completly itinirerary as for the 1st week of January there are no rooms available in Ilha grande. We flight from Italy, we planned our holiday in march and only 2 week before we discovered they decided to sale our room to other guests without any alternative. He just told us that for that time the island is fully booked and when i ask them to propose us other solution, he just didnt reply anymore.. I dont know if we came back again in Brasile and I would like to see ilha grande.. but thanks to Tagomago Pousada I wont see ilha grande this time and maybe never. Sometime i think is better to book with a touroperator, because with this kind of booking we dont have any warranty and any protection..

This is an absolutely lovely poussada . It's located on the beach with wonderfully friendly owners, nice big rooms with a balcony over looking the beach and hammocks on the balcony . It was only a 10 min walk into the centre of the island where the restaurants were. I could not recommend this more.

Reviewed 15 December 2013

We stayed for 3 nights. Mario and Nikki could not have been more welcoming and helpful to ensure we got the most out of the island. Breakfast was delicious but the most memorable part was the view from our balcony and from breakfast - absolutely stunning. Tagomago is placed at one end of Abraao - the quieter end but still only a few minutes walk to the centre. There are few places left where you can sit actually on the beach, with the waves lapping your feet, drinking caipirinhas or eating dinner. A truly special island and an even more special lodge. We arrived as guests and left as friends.

Reviewed 24 November 2013

The rooms were comfortable with set aircondition (on a comfortable temperature) and wifi (not working very well but it was the same at the rest of the island). The breakfast was really great with freshly made juices, loads of fruit, eggs, ham, cheese, cakes, homemade jams etc... The place also has free coffee and cake in the afternoon which was nice after the beach! The beach just outside the path to the hotel is nice and you have restaurants and the city centre very close by. Both ways there are several other beaches as well. The manager was very friendly and helping us having a great holiday with tour suggestions etc. All in all a simple place but very comfortable, quiet and with everything you need. And, for those who don't like bugs, there were NONE in the room :)

The Tagomago is a perfect place to stay on Ilha Grande. Nicola and Mario were very welcoming and helpful, and Guilherme, the manager, also very gracious. The rooms are comfortable, but the best thing about them is the excellent view over the treetops to the sea. The breakfast is, however, the high point: great coffee, fruit, cake and everything you could want. Added to the excellent communication with the pousada, this place deserves its number 1 ranking.
