We were a group (family) of 7 members, sharing a comfortable chalet (one private room, 3 teenagers on the ground floor and 2 at the "2nd floor"); the only difficulty was having only one bathroom; the view (from the chalet) was beautiful; service was great (room service, reception and the pool staff); we weren't bothered by the port noise.

Hotel Portalo is marketed as one of the luxury hotels on Morro Sao Paulo. Although the photos look nice, they don't tell the true story. The hotel is located on the harbour. Boats start making loud horn noises around 6:30 am and this goes on throughout the day. Starting in the late afternoon, the hotel has a DJ that blasts... More

Overlooking the harbour, set in beautiful gardens, wonderful friendly staff we loved this place. Stayed in the Fernando Pessoa chalet which is set up the hill and so a bit away from the rooms pool area which has music every evening so probably a bit of noise. From the bed you can see the sea, end the day on the... More

My husband and I had an amazing experience staying at Portalo for our honeymoon. The staff prepared a surprise for us decorating the room with local flowers, making our day even more special. The maids ensured our room was immaculate on a daily basis and the receptionists were very friendly and also extremely helpful. All activities inside of the hotel... More

Great hotel - possibly it's best quality is it's location - right next to the port which means you can easily carry your bags to the hotel rather than hire help! Staff very helpful and friendly. Reception great for recommendations. Relaxing place to stay. Beautiful view from our terrace balcony overlooking the sea. Pool good for the sunset. Would stay... More

The hotel itself is beautiful and clean, with the best sunset view in Morro de Sao Paulo, but their service is extremely slow and poor. We went there in the low season, and that might explain such bad service. Half of the staff we met were really friendly and helpful, but the other half seemed to simply hate their job.... More

I've been in Morro de Sao Paulo several times and I can assure you there's no place better to stay in than the Hotel Portalo. This one is the best place to stay in, unless you want to stay in a calm place (without people noise almost), which you can get staying at 4th and 5th beach, only. My opinion... More

Service isn't very good, not much waiters for the amount of people in need of service but the view is amazing, you can go there to watch sunset have some drinks, listen to music and even use the pool. I might say that everything there is more expensive and I wouldn't stay there at hotel but to go there to... More
