This place is the perfect mix between easygoing backpackers vibe with the personal touches of a guesthouse. It feels like you are staying with family. The guys are only to happy to help you get to know the local area- where to surf, find waterfalls, eat, hire bikes, catch the bus. There are heaps of great surf spots in the... More

I loved this place. All of it. Do not get me wrong - nothing fancy, DO NOT EXPECT A FANCY HOTEL! If you will, you will be disappointed. If you expect a great, family run small hotel/hostel. You WILL LOOOOOVE IT. We had a great time. Surfing, biking, eating with the owners. All of it is just perfect. The owner... More

The guest house is well situated in front of the beach, an advice is to take the room deluxe with a veranda facing the sea ! The atmosphere is really agreeable with the cool owners, rabbits with a cat spirits sharing the living room, place to park the car. You quickly feel home. If you are in backpackers spirit so... More

I would recommend this place to anyone! The best part about our experience was that the people were so helpful! Joao speaks English and helped us decide on the best places to visit and then helped direct us to where we needed to go! He also helped us find great (and cheap!) places to eat. The location is a little... More

Just a few steps from the beach, you can go to sleep with the sound of the ocean. It has a great place to cook and is close to some shops to buy some groceries. Atmosphere is great, everybody is very friendly and helpful. It's a very relaxing place and it feels more like home.

Cracking spot run by fantastic people. Some of the most beautiful coastline I've come across. Loads to explore. Pousada located directly opposite a beautiful beach, far away enough to enjoy a peaceful stay. Close enough to get into town by foot. Owners very knowledgable on the area, making day trips to incredible places possible (info that is not available in... More

I have been here now two times. The location of this pusada is the best. You are right at the most beautifull beach of Ubatuba! To town you have a short walk which makes it fine to do in the evenings. But there are also enaugh bars/restaurant in this area. The pousada is run by this nice family. All rooms... More

Room- We booked a private room with a shared bathroom, but because it was off season we got upgraded free of charge to a private ensuite which was a great welcome! Rooms were clean, comfy beds with tv and air con. Food- Breakfast is brought to you in a tray, giving you an option to eat it in your room... More

I cannot recommend Tropical Dolphin highly enough. Perfect location, incredible hosts and great atmosphere. The social area is so comfortable and relaxing, Darryl and Denise are such amazing hosts and they have done such a fantastic job with the place - beautiful mosaics, paintings and even a waterfall. They love what they do and this becomes clear on the warmth... More

Cracking hostel right in front of a quite and pretty beach with great, comfy rooms, a wonderful lay out and a most welcoming and friendly family running the show who are willing to help with trips about the place if you need. We had a really fantastic time, everything we wanted and more.
