“Perfect stay on Morro de Sao Paulo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

As others have written before me, this must be the best hotel on Morro de Sao Paulo.
The location is perfect just on the 3rd and 4rd beach which is more quiet and less-turisty that 1st and 2nd beach.
Nice, relaxing swimming-pool area overlooking the sea. Good breakfast and the restaurant at the hotel servs really good food for a nice lunch.
Rooms are very big and very comfortable.
It's a bit pricy, but if you prefer tranquility and luxury over crammed beaches and loud music all day and night, this is definetly the place to stay on the beautifull Morro de Sao Paulo.

Certainly the best hotel in Morro de Sao Paulo!! By far! Its quiet and relaxed and, for me, in the best beach of Morro. And yet, not too far to walk to the 2nd beach for the evening drinks or to the villa for dinner. Breakfast is delicious (try to tapioca) and service is outstading. Everyone is super nice and courteous. And believe the pictures, it is as beautiful as shown. Not one bad thing to say about this place! Also, as a restaurant tip, only good place we found on the island was at the pousada Minha Louca Paixao at the beginning of the 3rd beach. Surprisingly great! Thanks Villa dos Corais, hope to be back very soon!!!

After travelling by boat, minibus, speedboat, by foot and then 4x4 we arrived st Villas Dos Corais. We were welcomed by friendly reception staff who quickly checked us in and took us to our beautiful superir room, which was big , simple but elegant and stylish.
The hotel is between the 3rd & 4th beach and is right on the beach with stunning views.
The restaurant served good evening meals of a good European standard with West End London prices to Match, although you can eat a lt cheaper in the small tourist area which is a short 10 minute walk along the beach, where you will find a good selection of places to eat to sort all tastes and budgets. The breakfast at the hotel was a very good buffet.

This hotel s great to relax weather on the beach or in the hammock on your veranda, We had a great stay and will be going back and highly recommend it to anyone.

Really nice hotel with fabulous location right on the best part of the beach. The hotel is located between the 3rd and the 4th beach. The children (aged 8, 4 and 1) loved it there. The restaurant was pretty good (by Brazilian standards), and the breakfast was great. The only con was that the crowd staying here were a bit on the pretentious side. A great stay!

We stayed here just before Christmas 2011 and loved it. Our 2 yr old son adored the gardens, pool and room, and we found the staff really friendly, especially the guy who drives the jeep into town every evening. The room was lovely. It's situated within walking distance of the air strip if you fly to the island. Only recommendation is more variation needed on the evening menu, especially for families / children, and lunchtime sandwiches/burgers were disappointing at the hotel itself although the beachside restaurant was great and we ate there most days (unfortunately it was closed at night). We visited after a trip in July 2011 was cancelled due to sudden illness, both the hotel and air company let us re-book without any fuss, so we can't thank them enough for that. Expensive but a real treat.

We spent 5 days in Morro de São Paulo this past August and we choose Villa dos Corais following an adnvice from a friend who stayed there some years ago.

It certainly is the best place to stay in Morro, well located, about 1km from the town, so it's quiet and near the best beach, the 4th beach, but they have a transfer every hour to town if you want to go there and eat or shop. Rooms are ok, nothing special. Breakfast could be better, for brazilian standards. They have a small gym, although if you like to run, you have several kms to run in the beach. The pool is great and big. Service is slow, we wanted to have lunch one day at the pool, asked for the menu and they never came, so we went somewhere else.

We had a problem checking out, it was mainly our operator's problem, but the staff didn't acted correctly with us. Nevertheless it was not their fault.

I would recommend Villa dos Corais as the best place to stay in Morro de São Paulo.

Advices:
If you can afford it, get the flight from Salvador to Morro. We went by boat and bus and it took several hours, as it was winter in Brasil and the sea wouldn't let the boat cruise from Salvador to Morro.

We ate dinner always in Morro, best place was Casarão. Good sea fruit and service. Also try the caipirinhas at Joe in the square near Casarão. Yes, they are more expensive and the guy is a annoying, but the caipirinhas are really amazing!

After staying on the 3rd beach, my terrific future husband (he's talking now, I'm typing, BTW) found this place on a "long walk on the beach". He was greeted by Luis (highly recommended dude) who spoka da english and helped throughout our stay. It was a little outside of our price range, but after our first day, we stayed for another because we loved it so much. Some of the food was excellent (the croque madame, the fish with pureed peas, crispy banana and bernaise). Overall, awesome place, great location - highly recommended.

Room Tip: Just ask Luis
