We came to Trancoso, as my partner's choice, I normally when in Brazil , don't travel north. I'm glad he did. We've stayed a few nights at Etnia, our suite was fantastic, the lush green garden and it's flowers was refreshing and it took me back into nature and peace. The swimming pool area was lovely and the adjacent restaurant... More

The Posada itself is beautiful but what really differentiated Etnia for me was Laura, the managers, interest in making sure I had the best stay in trancoso that I could possibly have. I wanted to see the beaches, so she arranged both cars and beach restaurants for me Espelho and RIo de Barra which were both just out of this... More

My husband and I spent 5 nights at the Etnia Pousada in Trancoso in February 2014. Everything was great. The staff was friendly and helpful in every way and the hotel itself was lovely, tranquil and truly relaxing. They did everything they could to make our vacation the best possible and it was! It was great to be close to... More

Laid back, small hotel near the Quadrado. Rooms are simple, but stylish. Pool area is very nice. Breakfast served on the balcony of your room or at the pool. No SPA, but massages offered in-room (did not use this). Employees, management and owner are friendly. Don't confuse it with Etnia Club de Mar, which is the second (and more expensive)... More

Very good service, location is very nice and a lot to do in the area. Beaches are very nice and not crowded! I would recomend this place to my friends. Some mosquitos at night but not very disturbing.

This is a truly great place to stay, utterly relaxed, cleverly designed and with superb customer service. So welcoming was everyone it was like visiting a wealth relative"s exotic retreat. Nothing was too much trouble. Suggested day trips were particularly good, especially to the lady's very small restaurant for lunch on a remote beach. Both food and setting were wonderful.... More

We spent four days at Etnia in late October 2013. It was heavenly. The property is huge and the bungalows are nicely spaced out. We stayed in Gypsy, which was a free upgrade since we weren't in high season. Laura Ramallo, the manager, couldn't be more helpful, and the rest of the staff was friendly and efficient. The walk to... More

The big doubt we had once we decided to go to Trancoso was where to stay: by the beach or in the old part of town? We opted for the town side because 1) it gets dark pretty early there (around 6 pm in the summer), 2) there are several nice beaches in the area and being stuck in one... More

I stayed at Etnia Pousada with a friend in November. This place has so much charm that we felt immediately at home. The garden, the bungalows, the pool and the bar/restaurant are so tasteful and welcoming and the staff is just superb. We were treated and spoilt and nothing was too much for them. We even were upgraded upon arrival... More

We stayed here at the beginning of November and the hotel was fine. The rooms are nice but we did not find the beds to be comfortable. It wasn't very relaxing to sit around the pool as there are dogs (not the 3 dogs who are at the hotel, they are very well behaved ) around the property that are... More
