We stayed at Santa Esmeralda for half a week with our two sons, 14 and 12 years old. The hotel is located half an hour from Bonito but at the end closer to Buraco das Araras and other attractions in Jardim. You have to take 10 kilometers of dirt road but very well signalized. Just a little attention and you... More

I went with my boyfriend last December. I am Brazilian and my boyfriend is American. We both thought it was one of the top 3 places we have ever stayed at. It has a "nature" feel, very rustic and fresh, very beautiful. You can see wild animals and the property has its own beautiful river with giant fish. It is... More

God points: Nice place, Calm, in front of the river, you can see wild animals thru the road, the waitress are very kind, clean rooms and bathroom. Down side: for the price it should also offer lunch, in the menu they have almost nothing of typical dish from the area, no special juice so ever, the main common area smells... More

This is a really nice place, 60 minutes away from a fixed road, transfer from the airport was reliable, same applied for several day trips, e.g. snorkeling and walking. The small houses are cosy and clean and situated in a wide green area. There is a nice area around the pool, moreover it is possible to use a kanu to... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay in this hotel, only wish it could be longer. We deliberately chose one outside the town, and the location is quite remote and peaceful. The accommodation is basic but entirely in keeping with the rural surroundings, small chalets with verandahs and a hammock for relaxing afternoons. The birds are amazing, and we were... More

Physically, the setting is exceptional -- nicely appointed and lots of wildlife, outdoor activities. Extremely relaxing. The cabins are rather boxy and rustic, and not very spacious. The food was adequate but one would except better (and less salty -- a general problem in Brazil) for the price. The staff was outstanding -- could not have been more lovely, as... More
