We had a fantastic 4 nights at Asalem as part of our Honeymoon travelling around parts of South America. The room was clean and well designed with the bed on a kind of separate loft floor. It also had a very reasonably priced minibar and great sea views from just outside the front. The reception/bar/restaurant area had a great setting... More

We had an amazing time at Asalem. Apparently we were quite lucky with the weather because it didn't rain one single day, so we could enjoy all the pleasures of this amazing island during hot sunny days. The whole team is very friendly and we would love to thank in special to Natalia (sweet "Naty") and her boyfriend, the friendly... More

Our stay on the island was to get close to nature and staying in Asalem didn't disappoint. We saw monkeys, hummingbirds and tropical birds. We stayed in one of the older apartments which was lovely if slightly dated. The older apartments are however cheaper. You had to climb a staircase to get to the bed as this was situated over...

The scenery at this place is awesome. Having breakfast one morning we saw a turtle, a hummingbird and monkeys. We ended up spending most of our days at the site were it was calm and private instead of going to the packed beaches. The people is super friendly in a sincere way. The finish is not quite there to call... More

I wanted bring my son to a trip in close contact with nature and Ilha Grande was the best option for us. Based on Trip Advisor reviews I found Asalem to be the right place to spend our holidays there. And it was the very right choice. Asalem team made a great difference to our vacation from Day 1 and...

My husband and I stayed at Asalem for 4 nights in December. We chose Asalem as was set away from the main town of Abraao so we could get the best of both worlds, relaxation and exploration. We had the top floor eco-suite and we were so glad with our choice. Beautiful view and balcony which we loved spending time... More

The place was quite basic and was more along the lines of a budget hotel experience. It was certainly not luxurious. It's worth saying we stayed in a standard room, the better rooms were way nicer. The staff were all really friendly and helpful and they have someone who makes dinner on site which is a nice touch. We got... More

Went with a large group. We all had complaints about our rooms. Some didn't have hot water for a couple of days, others had no electricity. There was a black out one night and no one at the reception desk which was supposedly a 24 hours service. They just left a phone number at the front desk during the night....... More

The hotel is different from what is shown in the photos. In the suites, towels are all different, there aren't bathroom facilities, outdoor cushions are dirty, there isn't wifi. Kitchen and reception are messy, dirty and smelly. We did wash two pairs of trousers and came in a non-disposable bag and smelled of damp. As you enter the hotel we... More
