The place is so beautiful, very cozy and the Villas are very relaxing... we stayed 4 nights, the beach service is great, and the restaurant is one of the bests we tried in Trancoso... Try the Sea Food Moqueca, Is soo good! The breakfast is excelent... The staff were all very friendly and attentive. Can't wait to return to Paradise!

Villas de Trancoso is a beautiful and intimate boutique beach hotel. Their attention to detail is superb and staff wonderful. If you are looking for a perfect place to read, paint, body surf or work on your tan this is it. Cuisine is excellent and the beach bartender mixes exceptional fresh fruit juices.

We stayed for 6 nights at Easter in a 2 bedroom villa. It was wonderful. The location was perfect. Very peaceful but a short taxi ride from Trancoso town for restaurants in the evening. We particularly loved the beach bar where Walter makes the most amazing caipirinhas. Each day he made us a different variety and also made the children... More

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!
