Hotel do Frade is a 5-star, full of natural beauty and many luxuries services. I am really impress by this location and unique service when I visit this resort with my family. This resort offers various sports, hotel divided by superior and deluxe categories, amazing waterfall and natural swimming pool.

Let me be clear, this is not a five star resort. However, for the price, I found the accomodations more than adequate and the staff--without exception-- were gracious and helpful to a fault. I found it helpful to at least have knowledge of some basic Portuguese and that let them know that I wasn't an "ugly American" abroad. Overall, the... More

I loved this hotel. I have been there during a conference on September 2010. We loved the place and the attractions of the hotel. I particularly loved to walk through the beach. And also there are a lot of options of rooms, and the service is very nice.

Frade is a strong brand of hotels here in Brazil, however, my last visit to Hotel do Frade Golf and Resort was very disappointing. The hotel is old, needs an urgent renovation. The bed sheets were old and with stains. There are three restaurants inside the hotel, but only one was working during the week. I ordered a dessert but... More

Staff was very helpful. We had a problem right at the start, our room was not big enough to accommodate our family of 4. They worked very diligently to find a solution and gave us different options and we settled for an upgraded room. All the rooms we saw were not updated. They weren't terrible, just not what you'd expect... More

Angra dos Reis is about 3 hours away from Rio de Janeiro. It is a place to go to get on one of the many tourist boats and go spend time in the pristine, uninhabited islands of the coast. The boats visit many beaches, stopping for a quick swim in each. We are talking white sand, nice clear (cold) water.... More

We were on our way back to Rio from a lovely stay in Paraty and decided to check out the hotel do Frade for future stays. We arrived at the gate to ask whether we could come in for 5 or 10 minutes to visit the resort and get some quotations. The guy at the gate said that to go... More

I’ve just come back from a 3 night stay at Hotel dos Frades where I took part in an event being held at the resort. I was really expecting more especially after checking the web site. When I arrived I have the impression of getting to one of those tourist resorts at Punta Cana or Isla Margarita. Frades has a... More
