“A hidden gem just outside Angra dos Reis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2012

We stayed in Brazil for 10 days and decided to get a break from the city and see Ilha Grande. We booked to stay at the guest house as it was only 30 minutes from the centre of Angra and it looked really quaint and cute in the photos. If I'm honest we weren't expecting much as we hadn't seen the photos of the views and thought it would just be a small b&b. We were all blown away by the location, the views, the house, the food and the staff.

The house is set in a resort called Frade; a gated community with security guards at the entrance. There are lots of other houses nearby, a stunning private beach and some other local amenities. As we arrived at the guesthouse we couldn't believe our luck; the house was so beautiful, set on the canal with lots of expensive private power boats lined up! There is a huge pool between the house and the canal which was perfect for an early morning swim.

The rooms were spacious and clean, we stayed in the slightly larger suites, one on the first floor and one at the very front of the property overlooking the canal with a huge decking area complete with sun loungers and a hammock :)

I think one of the best things this guesthouse has to offer is the food, we ordered some local fish between 2 of us and it came out in a mini couldron type dish and it was the softest most succulent fish I have ever tasted.

If you want something a little different go and stay at the guesthouse for a few days, it really is a special place.

Room Tip: Book one of the suites, they are quite a bit bigger with balconies and huge bathrooms.

We´ve enjoyed a lot our stay.
It´s not a hotel, is your private suite at the best place of Angra. The Porto Frade condo.
Friendly staff, great service, with the owners courtesy and eyes always.
Loved the breakfast.
A place you can relax in and enjoy the wonders of Angra dos Reis, without the unpersonalized services of a big hotel.
Very nice pool area and we even made our own grilled fish and shrimps at the grill.
They have meals but there are options around, close to the condo marina where you can rent boats and tours, what is essential because Angra are the islands that surround it.
Thanks, we will be back.

Amazing place, very calm and beautifull
we took a nice tour on a boat to the islands, the water is crystal clear
the food at this place was awesome ! they make their own croissants, bread, gained a couple of pounds but it's ok !
We were treated very nicely by the staff and hope to be back soon, the rooms were very comfortable too, a little balcony to relax

highly recomend !!

I work and manage hotels myself and I under stand everyone has their own opinion. Beaware that with this company when you prepay and have security issues, uncleaned grounds, 2single beds pushed together to try and make one when you talk to the staff they are unable to help with anything. They give email address for owner but he not so interested in your issues, only this what you paid and NO REFUND or DISCOUNT. Not near any beach and you are at the merci of a boat to shuttle you across to be able to get to the beach, There are a couple other hotels right on the beach that I would seriously consider before staying here. Tv's are 20" if lucky. Will say is nice and secluded if this is what you are looking for though.... Not for a honeymoon Stay!!!!

This is the only bad review we have had so far and we are deeply sorry for your insatisfaction,
however your comment represent serious and untruthful acusations witch should be punished by law witch I may plan to do so. But I'll contest every single one of them:
1" uncleaned grounds" : we've been in the market since 1999 , we work with the major online reservations websites in the world, such as expedia, hotes.com, booking.com, travellocity, despegar.com, etc, etc , we have the best bank references if required, WE ARE NOT UNCLEANED, YOUR COMMENT IS.
2: "2 single beds pushed toguether..." : we have different kinds of rooms, some with king size beds, some with 2 full size beds, the one you stayed, another one could have apointed to you if you wanted "
3: "the owner gives email" : the owner is always present, not even need for email, anybody that stays with can in fact have a proof of this, anyhow, we respond emails with max 1 to 12 hs, send us an email and you'll see.
4: "No Refund or Discount" : you wanted a refund after you stayed and not before, maybe your hotel does that, it'd be the first on earth.
5: "the beach" : the beach is 300mts away, it can be accesed by foot or using the little boat to cruise the 20 METERS channel in order to make it a little faster and it takes 15 seconds
6:"Tv" all our Tvs are Plasma< depending on the room it could be from 20 to 32 inches
7: "other hotels on the beach" : theres is ONE other hotel and it is a resort, witch costs 4 times more, check the coments on it and you'll see if it's really nice like you are saying, it will be closed in 4 months.
8: "not for a honeymoon" : at least 50% of our guests are couples , many on honeymoon, from all over he world, see their comments on the internet and written on the wall of one of our facilities,

I think the problem was your honeymoon and not our hotel

Hi,
This place has it all. Location of course, right on the water at Angra. Plus everything you could ask for in terms of ammenities. 5 Bedrooms, all with Air-Conditioning and private bathroom & balcony overlooking the water. Swimming pool, pier for the boat, TV, Internet, BBQ, bicycles, and yes, they have a boat to rent as well!. Great deck to laze about on, gymnasium, jacuzzi. On top of this, your hosts John and Ana Paula are wonderful people, entertaining and hospitable. I came away so relaxed and refreshed, and so inspired by such a perfect location combined with every ammenity and fantastic service.
