Liked: Pousada Paloma is a nice place to stay if you visit Ilha Grande is just 2 mins walking from Lazaro beach, and about 5 mins walking from the harbour.

Disliked: staff could be more friendly, they live in a such beautiful and they could enjoy more it!

Liked: Was very happy with our decision to stay here. Private double room was clean, bed comfortable, bathroom clean, fridge in room, great deck with hammocks to hang out on, great internet, decent breakfast, close to a nice beach for drinking and eating and renting kayaks, Furthermore, the host was super-friendly, helpful and English speaking. Don't usually write reviews but thought this one was worth it!

Disliked: actually can't think of any right now.

Liked: More like a hotel than a hostel. Very close to the beach. Great bathroom and shower. Very clean. Bed made everyday.

Disliked: No other backpackers (maybe it was the time of year) so there was no atmosphere. They advertise a "bar" but I couldn't find any bar.... you're not allowed in that common looking area upstairs, it's so wierd.

Liked: Pousada Paloma is on the edge of Abrao, the main town on Ilha Grande. Its location in the town means it is quiet place, but perhaps a little harder to get to if you come with a lot of luggage. Suitable more for the backpacker / very cost-conscious traveler, rather than for a romantic getaway. The room we were in was a bit dark and the furniture very basic, though functional. There was a fan in the room and a small fridge. Also a private bathroom, with a shower that worked well - though same couldn't be said for the sink or toilet which had almost no water pressure. Overall, just good enough to stay overnight for a couple of days, if you're spending those days trekking around the island.

Disliked: Rather rude staff, they seemed to be more concerned with their Facebook accounts and preparing for a party with friends than with welcoming the guests. "Here is the key" was basically the extent of the welcome, even though we were apparently the only guests staying there upon our arrival. Breakfast was very very basic on the first day, though a bit better (bigger selection of fruits and some bread) on the second day when more guests checked in. There were some very unwelcome 'bathroom smells' in the breakfast room when people upstairs flushed their toilet.The room had a slightly 'mouldy' smell although this could be because of heavy rains on the previous few days. The aforementioned bathroom was very tiny and getting any water in the sink or getting the toilet to flush was a struggle.
