just an awful experience overall. the owner/manager was totally unfriendly. the room was tiny, dirty and needed some serious works. the bathroom was leaking water from every hole. and finally the place wax overcrowded with mosquitos and bugs of various species!!! in general this hotel is not worth a penny of what they are asking for!

Comfortable beds, and spacious room - favourite part was the private hammock on the patio. Negatives: The bathroom shower door stays half open and everything would get soaked... More

Couldn't ask for better - beautiful environment, helpful staff and owners but not intrusive. Close to the beach/river and to "town". For a really terrific experience, this is your place!

My boyfriend and I spent the last four days of our Brazil trip in Imbassai at Vilangelim. It was the perfect end to our vacation. Very relaxing, nice, clean cottages, great restaurant, very friendly and helpful staff. Highly recommended. Imbassai is a gem ... there was a lot of construction going on in the town ... I'm curious to see... More
