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

My wife and I stayed at Asalem for our honeymoon and had the most wonderful time. The staff is very attentive, the rooms are clean and private. And the setting of Ilha Grande is unbeatable. All of the people that live and work on the island are very kind and helpful. Our stay was very relaxing. If you want a... More

My wife and I stayed at Asalem for 4 nights, following a business trip I had to Brazil. Asalem was everything I had expected it to be...the staff is knowledgable and friendly, the location is just a short shuttle boat ride or 20 minute walk along the shore from the town, the executive suite we stayed in was exactly as...

My husband and I stayed at Asalem for 4 nights as part of our honeymoon travel in Brazil. This was definitely a highlight of our travel. The location is picturesque, tranquil and unforgettable. The staff of the hotel was very friendly and helpful. Our Eco-honeymoon suite was very modern, comfortable and very clean. The meals were served on the terrace... More

After staying one night in a crap hostel on the main strip we decided to treat ourselves a bit at Asalem! Really friendly staff, clean rooms, great location! Dinner and breakfast view was amazing..! Even had turtles pop up to say hello for breakfast one day!

Extremely nice views, and quite cozy rooms. However, the service was better than either; very friendly staff, always willing to help. It was also quite nice having a taxi boat for ourselves to go to the village and back. The only major downside is that the showers take up to two minutes to warm up. Apart from that, everything was... More

We suffered some inconveniences that are usual in remote brazilian places like water and power outages, but what we didn't like of this hotel was that when we decided to leave a day before we planned in principle, they refused to compensate the expenses we made with what we already paid (they ask you to pay in full your stay...

We just returned from our annual trip to Asalem. Incredible. We always come away from Asalem feeling recharged and relaxed. Andre and his staff always make us feel like family. We also love the fact that the owners, Andre and Bianka, are always looking to make Asalem even more eco-friendly. Solar water heaters, green building design concepts, eating locally grown/caught...

Asalem is paradise - surpassed expectations and ranks among the best places I've ever been (as a fairly well traveled/hospitality architect). I could go on with details, but offer a few tips based on our experience: 1. We only stayed two nights - left wanting more, so I'd suggest 3 as a minimum. 2. We stayed in the honeymoon suite....
