Well, for the guys there I would give 10 stars for sure. People are just amazingly helpful, kind and make you feel truly at home. For the rest of the place, it is very nice, the rooms are good (not the city standards, obviously). From the peer you have to walk a bit to get to the hotel and if... More

I'm so pleased that you felt at home with us at Aratinga and that all the staff looked after you well. Ilha Grande is a beautiful, natural paradise but it must not be forgotten, it IS an island. The logistics of building construction and bringing building materials from the mainland are very complicated which is why you will not find... More

We stayed at Aratinga for 3 nights in one of the chalets. It rained on arrival and all luggage got wet. Aratinga staff offered to dry our clothes in the machine. The chalets were cosy, not to big though. All very clean and well looked after. Rennie and her team are doing everything they can do to make your stay... More

My wife and I spent 6 wonderful days at Aratinga Inn. Everything was perfect: service, cleanliness, location, rooms, meals, the staff. Rennie is such a lovely, helpful, friendly person. The nature, flowers, birds' sounds, the cats and the trees make that pousada be just wonderful. We really recommend it ! Maurício from Jundiaí, Brazil
