“A very environmental friendly place!”
Reviewed 28 April 2011

My classmates and I traveled to Ilha Grande to do an sustainability research project: Ilha Grande Green Mapping. We didn't stay at this pousada, but we interviewed the owner of this Pousada, who was extremely kind and friendly.

As we interviewed several other hotels on this island, Recanto das Flores seemed to be one of the nicest places we've seen. It was very clean, quiet, and the setting of the courtyard was just unbelievably beautiful. There were fruit trees growing in the courtyard such as banana and coconut, they also serve their guests with organic fruits and provided sustainable features.

In addition, our group was interviewing other sites that had sustainable practices and we have made a web page for travelers convenience! check it out ! it is a geat way to know which places to go to!

I traveled to Ilha Grande to perform a research project on Ilha Grande's sustainability. I went around several businesses and Pousada RECANTO DAS FLORES is one of the best on the island.

To start off, the service is just amazing. The lady who helped me was extremely nicely. She did not rush through the survey and even offered me some bananas off a banana tree that was inside her courtyard.

She explained to me that the pousada utilizes sensors for the lightening in order to prevent the unnecessary use of electricity. Also, the electronic devices like the television are electricity saving.

They also only wash the towels if they requested to as per the "left on the floor is to be washed" if left hanging is to be washed some other day.

Not to forget that they classify their waste by its materials. Classified by plastic, glass and paper. These bins are in the courtyard.

I would extremely recommend this place not only because is sustainable but because it is clean and has a nice staff.

If you want to know more about the project please visit:

Spent 3 nights here, and loved it. Small but quiet place, and fantastic staff.
Beautiful garden which has lime, monkeys and nice flowers and plants. Great breakfast- well worth the money!
Has Wifi which was why we chose it- well worth it if you need access to internet on Ilha Grande.
English speaking staff!

Room Tip: Make sure to book well in advance- it may fill up!

I stayed for 4 nights in this cozy pousada and it was the best choice we could have made to stay in Ilha Grande. It’s conveniently located about 5 min walking form Vila de Abraao dock, and near restaurants and supermarkets. The pousada has 5 apartments with their own terrace and spotlessly clean, some have kitchen, the decoration is basic but creates a charming atmosphere, beds were comfortable, air conditioned is included.

One of the best points of these pousada is the staff, the two ladies that manage this guesthouse were extremely helpful, giving advice about the excursions available and the best timing and options, they cared for us at all times and really made us felt at home. One of the ladies is an experienced guide that can even hike to Pico do Papagaio.

Another thing that we enjoyed a lot about this pousada was the garden, full of tropical plants and orchids, we could even see hummingbirds, blue butterflies and monkeys while having breakfast in the terrace; there was also a small pond with red and blue fishes. The breakfast was plentiful and of good quality, it included bread, toasts, butter, jelly, honey, cakes, juice and a variety of fresh fruits.

Although the booking process wasn’t the easiest being in Europe(I had to call directly), the staff help me through it and the Pousada went beyond my expectations. I definitely recommend it, it was the best value for money and the staff and the place were so great that they made our vacation unforgettable.
