“Very cool, relaxing, friendly and scenic place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

Spent four days in Comandatuba during an off-week, i.e., staff of 550 caring for 25 guests!

Service with a smile. The only drawback is that you better speak Portuguese.

Other than that hilt recommended.

Room Tip: Stay in the main building and demand a room with a view of the ocean.

The resort is ideal for couples and for families.It offers a massive choice of activities. If you want to get away from it all ask for a bungalow with view to the beach. You may have to walk further to get to where the `action`is within the hotel. Direct chartered flights available from São Paulo - which make this resort very special in terms of transport and traffice delays. Food is good, plenty of varied entertainement, great gymn, friendly, clean and organised to the finest of details. You can even read the golf department`s telephone number within the golf carts !
Have returned 4 times within ten years. Plan to visit again...

Room Tip: Bungalow with direct view to the beach are available if you want to get away from it all. Otherwise...

It was my 18th being at Comandatuba. My wife, my mother in law, and my two children really really love this place. Because it offers everything a resort can offer. luxury, comfort, sophistication, leisure, beauty... My children are now 13 and 15, and we have been taken them to Comandatuba since they were born. We had gone only to there, untid the day I decided to try other places, in 2004. I tried all the others beach resorts in Brazil (Costa do Sauipe, Costao do Santinho, the Club Meds, Tivoli Praia do Forte, Blue Tree, Iberostar Bahia...) and even the Mariott Obidos, in Portugal. It was my greatest regret losing my and my family's time knowing those places. And I realized that Transamerica Comandatuba is the best of Brazil resorts, for me. The best for family's trip.
We really really LOVE that place. It special. You out there, just try.

We are from Belo Horizonte, Brazil.

The Transamerica is undoubtedly one of the best hotels I've ever stayed at. It is set in a wonderful island full of palm trees, and it is just a couple of hours by plane from São Paulo.

The hotel has its own airport where its crew welcome you and they make responsible for your luggage. In fact, they'll take it right to your room, and then back to your plane when it's time to return.

The main building is not really outstanding but inside it is really charming and amazingly clean. Lots of really efficient maids make this possible. Service is really excellent and the hotel staff is helpfull and almost unnoticeable.

There are two stunning pools, seven tennis courts, a great golf course, a prestigious spa and many other facilities, all very well appointed.

Rooms are spacious and well arranged, and beds are great. Bathrooms are confortable, in spite of their lack of bath.

There is a very long list of activities to be done and a bunch of bars and restaurans open all day.

A drawback: the beach here is not as nice as it could be expected. Anyway, you can spend a whole week here without even setting a step on the sand.

All in all, this is a great place for holidays -if you can pay for it.

  • Liked — Leisure facilites, service.
  • Disliked — I can't find any drawbacks. Maybe the beach is not great.

I have been to some of the best resorts in Brazil and after spending one week in Comandatuba I rate it as my favourite.
It's one of those places that you never feel alone, there are so many things to do, from classes in the pool, entertainment, gym, golf, walks on the beach, 4x4, Motorbikes, bicycles, football, tennis and then an incredible entertainment team for the Children.
The one thing that I’ve enjoyed most is that it's by far the friendliest staff I've found in all my trips, always ready to help, but without bugging you, it's almost like in the Orient they are there but you only feel them until you need them.
Besides the fact that you have so many different places where to be, you can either be in the middle of he entertainment, in a more isolated swimming pool, playing in a wonderful golf course or just bathing on an isolated beach.... I think what better describes Comandatuba is Quality with alternative.
For me Comandatuba is almost the Perfect resort, ahh and the food is great too!

  • Liked — The Frienliness of the staff
  • Disliked — Could have more rooms with sea view
