This place is a bit difficult to get to with luggage (up a staircase alley), but the balcony views make it worthwhile. The staff will also help carry your luggage from/to the dock if asked in advance, and the management is super friendly. However, what let this place down seriously was the stained/filthy sheets. I threw the cover back after a long day, ready to sleep, only to discover the horror in the attached photos. I do not care if the bedsheets were clean, but simply stained. Without being able to confirm one way or another, I simply could not sleep on those nasty-looking sheets. Fortunately, I had both a double bed and single bed in my room, so I stripped the stained/dirty sheets from the large bed, and re-made it using the sheets from the small bed (which thankfully were not stained). The staff/management should have known that no guest would want to sleep on filthy-looking sheets, so should not have thought it was acceptable. They let themselves down here. Thumbs down.…
+ pousada very well located - Missing mosquitoes net, only a few beds have one whereas there are millions of mosquitoes. Only hôtel without an electricity generator on the island ( stayed for 2 entire days without electricity ). The WiFi connection is a joke. Juices for the breakfasts are far too much diluted into water. Pousada manager did welcomed us warmly and overall had a bad attitude.
We loved Pousada Tagomago. It's at the end of the beach, a short walk through the sand to your left when you get off the ferry boat at the dock. It has it's own private walkway from the beach up to the pousada, which was about 200 steps. The hostess and her two sons were lovely to work with. Breakfast was delicious. Our stay was very private and quiet. We loved it!
Lovely pousada, managed by Claudia and her son. They're very kind and helpful! The room was very nice with the most amazing view over the bay! I saw other reviews talking about the distance from the pier. I personally, found it was not so far. Only 10 minutes by the (sandy) 'road' and even less over the beach :) We arranged via Claudia that our suitcases would be picked up. Although you'll walk sand from the beach very easily in the room and the humidity at the island, they are able to keep the rooms very clean. I've never seen a room so clean on a tropical island! Keep in mind that you have to walk some stairs to get to the pousada. If you're generally fit, this should be absolutely no problem :)
The service here was the best we had in all of Brazil. Claudia is extremely welcoming and does anything she can to make your stay pleasant. The location of the Pousada is good in that it is a short walk to the main town and also steps from some of the best food on the island. Please note a few things as they did catch me off guard. If you have a rolling suitcase it does take about 15 minutes through sand or dirt road. You can secure someone to handle your luggage once you arrive on the island and then Claudia's staff handles the luggage on the way back. It is very modest living in the Pousada but it truly helps you feel the escape of everyday reality. If you are headed to ihla grande I highly recommend this Pousada.
