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 The bathroom fixtures are outdated and in disrepair.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

staying here for 4 nights to wind down after 2 and a bit weeks travelling in Brazil. So glad that we chose it. We were worried that we were a long way from restaurants, but the food is great. 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

We were originally going to come to Morro de Sao Paulo for a few days but in the end came for half of our week (the remainder in Salvador) - our only regret was not spending more time here. The island is beautiful (although getting there is much easier via the bus / speedboat route than the catamaran which is... More

My husband and I went on a 2 week holiday to Brazil for our honeymoon and our stay at Anima was by far the highlight. If you want a place to just get away from it all, in a peaceful, relaxing location, then this is it. The staff are really helpful and friendly, the food is amazing and all set... More

Everything is great in this place. The staff is very helpful, the food is amazing and the place is wonderful. Definitely worth coming back for a longer period. However, the trip to the center of the village is very unconfortable. It would be perfect if the road could be fixed.

My husband and I just returned from a short getaway to Morro de SP. We stayed at Anima Hotel per a friend's recommendation and we felt super lucky with our hotel. Anima is a cute, quaint, and romantic hotel in the Praia do Encanto (aka 5th beach of the Morro). We liked that it was far away (20 min driving)... More
