We stayed one week in Villas de Trancoso and it was beyond expectations. The drive from the airport is a bit of a challenge, due to the bad roads, but Eduardo is an experienced driver and got us there safely around midnight. In our Villa were some sandwiches and fruit. Nice touch and thoughtful! Accommodation: We booked the Villa, which... More

We spent 3 days here after a 3 week trip around Brazil. The villas are beautiful, private and set in lovely grounds behind an almost deserted white sandy beach. My partner went horse riding on the beach and said it was amazing. A fabulous stay for total relaxation. Staff are attentive and friendly. Restaurant has a good menu with local... More

I've spent a very pleasant day there in the last week of April 2016 and I felt this place deserved a thorough review because of it! Let me start with what is not so great about it and Trancoso as a whole. It is not cheap. You stand to part with more than a few bucks to enjoy this place.... More

Wasn't inexpensive but worth it... amazing staff, great room, great pool and beach... Concierge was amazing and spoke perfect English. They were great to my family and kids. The wifi service is not the best but that may be a good thing.

Apparently Trancoso is at the moment overpriced and this includes the Villas as well. For a hotel charging such prices, I would expect more. 1) Restaurant: some meals are a disappointment. Spaghetti portions very small. A child portion. Arrabiatta sauce basically garlic in a sweet (?!?) tomato sauce. Caesar salad basically some cubes of grilled chicken garmented by a few... More

We were very sorry to hear that this guest was not entirely happy with his experience with us. We do our best to maintain competitive prices with other comparable hotels. In general prices (as measured in foreign currencies) in Brazil and Trancoso have declined substantially in the last two year due to the decline of the real against major currencies.... More
