.. because selfishly, we'd like to keep Pousada Lagamar to ourselves.. but then the place, the food, and especially Luciana and Ezequiel were so good.. it just wouldn't be right not to share. But then again it's the quietness of the west of Ilha Grande that's so appealing.. so no, actually you're better off not coming ;-).

The pousada is located in a really nice and quiet place. Really good place to hike around. People are really nice and friendly. Although we were not lucky with the weather, the welcoming was warm and we spent really good time there.

Pousada Lagamar was exactly the kind of stay friends and I were looking for. It's off the beaten path and is an adventure to get to. The lovely couple who own it, Luciana and Ezequiel have done a tremendous amount of work to remodel and beautify the grounds and are always available to help advise you on making the most of your stay. Freshly cooked simple and healthy meals each day were rejuvenating.

The location is ideal for those who want to feel like they are getting away from the crowd and enjoy hiking to the various bays and sights this side of the island offers.

This place is muito bom!

My friend and I arrived late in the day as a storm was about to blow in. We'd been around Buzios, explored the streets of Rio, watched our pockets on Ipanema... I was ready for some tropical relaxation, and man, did we find it! The low season, not super-sunny weather (so I didn't get sunburnt!), just a couple other friendly Brazilians, our amazing hosts, Ezekiel, his wife, Luciana, and his step-mother... And, of course, the monkeys (marmosets a.k.a. mico's in Portuguese), spiders, gorgeous birds, mosquitos, fish, papaya trees, cacao trees, banana trees...

This place is an absolute paradise if you're ready to be away from it all. Right above Praia Vermelha, it's a bit of a trick to get to. We took a bus from Rio's Rodovaria Novo bus terminal (Costa Verde line) to Angra Dos Reis. Don't worry about missing the stop, it'll be a big terminal that the bus pulls into! The bus will also stop half-way for a bathroom and food break. It was a bit confusing as we made our way to the dock. Either a 20 min walk, or a couple minutes by taxi (or in our case, friendly Brazilians!). Fortune smiled on us again, as we walked to the end of the smelly fishing pier and managed to hop on the last boat to Praia Vermelha and Praia Aracatiba. If you get lost, ask folks for either of those. The boat captain pointed us in the right direction, and my wonderful companion, who had read these reviews, led us left on the beach, up the path, and over to our pousada!

On that note, this area _is_ out of the way. Very few speak any English or even Spanish. Spanish and Italian were super useful! Otherwise you might be very frustrated.

I was very disappointed in only spending 2 nights there. I could easily relax for a week or so. The staff were so wonderful, considerate in the loan of a mask and snorkel, cooking us fantastic meals, making potent and delicious caipirinhas. I felt like we made some new best friends!

The hikes on the island are not to be scoffed at. They are tough! Lots of ups and downs, slippery and unmarked trails (to the Grotto or Gruta). This is a cave, so bring a light and a mask and snorkel to see the fish at the bottom. Otherwise, the hike is worth it for itself. Like the Na'Pali coast, it traverses the rainforest and coastline. I wish I were back there now!

Obrigado, gracias, grazie... Me ha gustado mucho esta pousada e esta vacanza! Todas las cosas bellas, monos simpaticos... Y la gente allí eran los mejores! Tengo que volver!

Up on the slopes above Praia Vermelha, this pousada proved to be a great hideaway for our family with 2 toddlers and a gradparent. The rooms and facilities are basic and we had to keep a close eye on the kids but the new owners did everything they could to make things work for us. Hearing their plans and ideas, this pousada might turn into a real gem in a couple of months.

We stayed at this pousada for 4 nights and made our choice based on the reviews we read.
We found the staff extremely helpful, kind and just lovely! We met Mel and he was very charming, friendly and lovely to be around.

The accommodation is basic, we expected that .... However we found the rooms had been a little neglected .... We just felt they needed a little work to bring them up to more dated level. Wires hanging from the ceiling, a toilet that did not always flush, cracked basin and shower.

The food was delicious and credit to their cooking ... Unfortunately we were looking forward to a varied meal in the evenings as stated by others who visited this pousada. We had the same sort of meal for 4 nights - fish, salad and beans. Although we did have different sauces on the fish each night, it was the same fish ... Just wished we had a more varied dinner, especially when surrounded by fishing boats having just caught all types of seafood and fish. Breakfast was equally the same repetition .....

We would definitely go back to the island for another holiday but we would find another Pousada to stay at.

Hello Marsha
Thanks for your review, we are always working to better serve them. Today the inn has already improved the air conditioning and bathrooms. The kitchen today attended by its current owner, Ezekiel, a great cheff will be able to meet your culinary requests. The transfer from Angra until the hostel has also been improved and now has three types of boats that make the crossing. We expect another visit from you very soon and prove that there evolved a lot thanks to assessments like yours that make us grow day by day.

The island was my personal highlight, far away from work and every other possible stressfull thought. We were practically alone at "our" beach 5 minutes away from the pousada. Beautiful nature, sea, beaches... The staff was super friendly, delicious food, always freshly prepared, fresh fruit every morning. It's far from a 5 star hotel, but we only went up there to sleep anyway.
Oh and no need to buy drinking water every 5 minutes (getting kinda expensive after a while) - you can drink tab water without any concerns. All in all, if you want solitude to recharge your batteries and don't need much luxury, this place is perfect for you.
