I spent 1 week with 2 kids at Villas in a comfortable 2 bed/2bath cabana in the middle with an immaculate tropical garden. I highly recommend this place; one of the best foods you will find in Trancoso, to die for breakfast with every single Brazilian dish you must try, drinks that are made in heaven and a by the...

We have been traveling to Brasil for over 15 years and this is now my favorite place to stay , with the Chili Beach in Jericoacoara a close second. We were collected from Porto Seguro airport by transfer, arranged by hotel, roughly an hours drive . Upon arrival we were met at the car by a young lady who took... More

Year after year, the VILLAS still remains unrivalled in Trancoso. This is a very exquisite place that, even after 10 annual visits, still surprises me. Impeccable accommodations, the best beach club and friendly staff is hard to beat. Congratulations for Galen for putting together such a wonderful team, helmed by the efficient Maria and now also Barbara, one cannot find... More

The most amazing aspect of Trancoso is that I did not know it existed 3 weeks ago. I stumbled onto it searching for the ultimate beach getaway. After experiencing the Uxua Hotel for the first few days (which was mind blowing.) We had to find another hotel as Uxua was fully booked (Carnival time in Brazil) We were in a... More

This divine spot is all you could ever want in a gorgeous beachfront vacation. Truly deluxe! The beds are SO comfortable, service impeccable and the tropical grounds and beach stunning. The concierges could not be more accessible, friendly, accommodating and knowledgable. A must-go!

We spent 6 fabulous days in Trancoso and highly recommend it. The property is an exquisite oasis with an immaculate garden, and a lovely secret bridge under mangroves that provide access to the beach. We drove from Arial d'Ajuda through rutted and ravined back roads along which which one could see recently installed utility poles carrying huge electrical and data... More

My husband and I just returned from 7 days at Villas de Trancoso. Perfect in every way. Spectacular beach, wonderful food, peaceful, and warm people to help with your every wish. We spent every day on the beach and evenings at the Quadrado trying a different restaurant. New Years Eve was a treat. We stayed on property and they had... More

My wife, daughter, and I just stayed at Villas de Trancoso (Dec 3-15) and had a wonderful stay. I would recommend this place to anyone with family, celebrating a special occasion or looking for a romantic getaway. The reviews were correct, even when the hotel is sold out, you still feel like you have this place to yourself. The beach... More
