“couldn't be lovelier”
Reviewed 11 January 2014

My husband and I had an amazing three days at Vila Pedra Mar. Although the island is a bit of a schlep from Rio, Karien and Riann helped us arrange our transfers which made the trip much easier. The pousada is open and airy and the rooms are large and well-appointed. It is located on a sleepy beach on the other side of the island from the main village Abraao, so you mostly avoid other tourists. They have a private dock for swimming/sunning and hiking trails to other beaches are right nearby.

The most remarkable part of our trip was the warmth and hospitality from the owners, Riann and Karien and their staff. We felt right at home the entire time. The breakfasts and three-course dinners were also spectacular.

This is the perfect place if you want a few days away from the hustle and bustle. You will be able to completely relax and enjoy gorgeous scenery.

Vila Pedra Mar, Ilha Grande + Karien and Riann’s hospitality make for a one of kind and unforgettable getaway. The unblemished beauty of the island paired with the luxurious appointments and homely touches of this posada are unforgettable. Karien and Riann took wonderful care of our family, they went the extra mile for us when our son was feeling under the weather, arraigned a great boat adventure for us and other guests and had perfect suggestions for enjoying the island. Not to mention, all those delicious meals enjoyed under the stars or in the ‘sala.’ If you are fortunate to make to Vila Pedra Mar, you are in for a wondering experience.

Room Tip: There are only 3 to choose from, and they all look beautiful!

We had such a brilliant 3 days at Vila Pedra Mar! It is a beautiful B&B in a stunning location and perfect if you want to chill out for a few days away from Rio. We stayed in Suite Verde and loved it, what a view! Breakfasts and dinners were delicious. I wish we'd stayed for much longer!

Room Tip: Suite Verde was lovely, can't fault it. Although we have a quick look in the Honeymoon Suite and...

We stayed for 3 nights in the Suite Brisamar at the end of our South American trip. Great location, so peaceful and relaxing. Breakfasts were huge, and the scrambled eggs delicious. Dinners were also great, and lovely setting, beneath the stars on their roof terrace. We enjoyed our excursions, walking to "la gruta" one day and talking their boat round to L'Aventureiro beach on another. Note that the locals know the hotel as Pousada Jo - helped us to make sure we were on the right boat from Abraao! We definitely hope to return in the future.

This is a charming hotel in an idyllic location. Karien and Rhiann were lovely hosts and great cooks! (Make sure you have the sugar, cinnamon and lime combination on your morning pancake!) It's one of those places where you want to stay for weeks on end. Fantastic.

This location is the best! Sarry and Jo are the most lovely hosts.
We stayed here two years ago with our 7 month old daughter. On the roof terrace I asked my (now) wife to marry me. Jo and Sarry helped with the champagne and it was just perfect.

So sorry I didn't write a review earlier!
Hope you are doing good and you beautiful place still attracts nice people...
