“I recommend this pousada!”
Reviewed 15 December 2013

I am Rocio. I stayed with my boyfriend for 7 nights. We were looking for a quiet, cozy and full of nature place and we gave with it! I felt so comfortable in this pousada. Very clean, the atmosphere is great, very nice details in the decoration in the rooms and in all the pousada. The rooms are not big but that was not a problem at all. The rooms are very cozy and the sheets very good quality and clean. Like at home! The other people staying there are couples or 2 friends. There are no children or groups of people making noise (in my experience). So the pousada is always very calm. The breakfast very good! Location comfortable. Everything is very near.
You won´t regret!!! :)

Room Tip: I would recommend staying in the upper rooms with nice view.

We stayed here for a week at the beginning of our year long, round the world trip. We wanted to kick off our year with something that felt more holiday-ish, and this was the perfect place. We loved the grounds and its proximity to services in the village, and the staff were so friendly (especially Paula who offered us lots of history on the island and restaurant recommendations). The breakfast was also fantastic. We recommend this place wholeheartedly.

Room Tip: We had room 4 on the ground floor (we were on a budget) but I think the upper rooms might be nicer...

Charming setting surrounded with forest elements. Comfortable room, with practical mapping, such as enough space to put your stuff, enough electrical sockets, refrigerator and clothes horse. Central location, just one street from the crowded area. Friendly staff, though limited English speaking. Breakfast with some extra offerings compared to regular hostels. No wifi, which is a good thing in case you are coming to the island to get away from hectic life at home. We had a very positive experience, it was worth the money.

Great four days at this lovely pousada. We tried to extend two extra days but was unfortunately full. The rooms and the Breakfast Lounge were cosy and full of lovely Details...WiFi did not work, but we did not care - there were plenty of things to do on the Island!! Breakfast was stunning - and for us the Highlight of our stay (every day different homemade cakes...)
Staff was very kind and the whole pousada was always very clean.

We highly recommend this pousada for those looking for a quiet small oasis in Ilha Grande.

Met the Pousada Riacho dos Cambucas, walking around the Ilha Grande Angra dos Reis – RJ. We found that its location is privileged for allowing a real rest away from the natural but noisy commercial center where are other Hostels. There, the back-and-forth of couriers and bags, as well as objects of the natural trade workers circuit and the harbour. The facility is inside the nature and not like others that only has "little flowers". The decor is perfect, the service very helpful, impeccable cleaning and you feel like you're in the middle of a forest surrounded by birds, flowers, little river, and … afternoon tea, with that coffee aroma and teas and cake is just ... divine! The formatting of the Pousada its services is worthy of note 5 stars in any tourist guide in the world.

entre o gerente, o espaço, a natureza, os quartos tranquilos amplio com tudo possível, o cafe da manha junto - tenho certeza que vou voltar com meu namorado duas vezes por ano.

Our experience at Riacho dos Cambucas was one of the best vacations we have ever had. The service was great - every one was kind and helpful. They had movies for the nights when you're too exhausted to go out and games for the beach. Not to mention the delicious breakfast with brasilian fruits and juices and the amazing rooms. It's worth it to spend a little bit extra because I have read here about noise, etc between the wooden walls, but we didn't hear anything at all. As long as you walk and swim and enjoy the beautiful island all day - you'll sleep soundly when you get home at night :)

Room Tip: Vale a pena pagar um pouco mais para um quarto porque são mais tranquilos, tem rede e vista da jardi...

We arrived during a torrential storm, and this Pousada was like a little haven. The rooms were beautifully presented, clean and large enough for our needs. Outside the rooms were hammocks, and a great communal area (if it had been a bit warmer - but we were there in Winter!). They had DVDs to borrow, which considering the weather at the time was quite welcoming. The breakfast was one of the best we had in Brazil. Made to order eggs, and a toasted cheese sandwich maker, amongst fresh fruit and the traditional Brazilian breakfast fare of cake! Every afternoon they put out tea and cakes for when you returned from your hike/beach which was always welcome.
The only downsides for us was that the water in the shower was barely warm, and the owners spoke no English at all. We aren't typical English tourists who expect everyone to speak our language fluently, but considering the lonely planet suggests discussing the different hikes with your guesthouse, we were expecting to at least be able to communicate with them. Perhaps this was our fault due to our lack of Portuguese....
However overall this Pousada was lovely and I would highly recommend.
