It's a lovely hotel with fantastic surroundings. The beach is great (though when the tide is out its, it's miles to the sea), the pool is very small but nice to sit around, they do great cocktails and the central pool/bar area is lovely for a drink at night providing you bring a decent quantity of insect repellant (an absolute...

We stayed here for 8 nights and had a fantastic time. The location is lovely (if you want to be in a quiet and tranquil place), the food was outstanding and reasonably priced and the hotel staff were all completely delightful. We travelled with 2 children aged 9 and 10 and they absolutley loved it. Thank you to all at... More

I have been in Anima Hotel in March with my wife and spent four wonderful days. The beach is beautiful and very calm sea. The rooms are spacious and clean. The staff are attentive and helpful; I'd like to thank you for your attention given to us.

Beautifull place great acomodarions the staff vwry efficient and kind great food by chef Ricardo and as the best concierge ever M Antonio Piano The hotel is a good option for those who want a calm place far from the city with parties and lots of people ,but they have free transfer for the main city.

The reason why I am giving this a 'very good' is the secluded location which I loved. The accommodations werde also very nice and the common area was spacious. This being said, the hotel is in need of an update. The bathroom fixtures are outdated and in disrepair. The pool looks not very clean and displays loose tiles and really... More

We decided to go to Morro sooner than planned as Salvador was not what we hoped. So we were limited for choices after New Year. This place was probably available because it's a few KM's away from town. Don't let that put you off. The staff were fantastic, the food amazing, the bungalows beautiful and clean and the facilities excellent.... More

Just had tilapia ceviche, crabs in coconut milk and prawns as a 'tapas' lunch. we walk past a hummingbird's nest to... More

It is a wonderful hotel right on the beach. The pool area and beach is amazing and very family friendly. Our chalet was very nice, the service absolutely perfect and we wished we could stay there longer. I recommend a massage in the beach hut followed by a sunset capirinha on the beach. Dreams can come true.. :)

After hesitating for a long time between staying in the heart of Morro's action or going for a more secluded retreat in Praia do Encanto, we chose Hotel Anima based in part on the great reviews on TripAdvisor and did not regret our choice. We were lucky to have the place all to ourselves (traveled as a couple) but never... More

I came and went and came again...it was almost impossible to leave Casa Anima and Morro. What a wonderful place. It took me, completely. I came over planning to spend 3 nights. After a total of 13 day on the island, I had to leave. I stayed at Anima twice. (The only reason I left was that they were fully... More
