My husband and I spent four days at Porto da Lua for our honeymoon. We couldn't have chosen a better place. The location is perfect, right on the beach. We stayed at the Honeymoon suite, a large beachfront bedroom with a wrap-around balcony. At night, we could hear the sounds of the waves and every morning we could see the... More

Last stop in our tour of Brazil, the Porto da Lua was a great place to relax and unwind. The location is brilliant, right on the beach although with a private garden for sunbathing. The hotel is small and friendly, the rooms are medium sized but comfortable with plenty of storage space. The food is average, a (cold) breakfast buffet... More

Loved this place. Very friendly, great breakfast and tea and delicious caipirinhas. It is basic but that's what we liked. The views are beautiful and the sea is warm but it is rocky and there's quite a bit of seaweed. However just wander along and you can bathe in comfort. The restaurant was nice but very quiet so we didn't... More

The Hotel is amazing. It is locate just at the beach. The rooms are very nice, and you feel very welcome by the staff. The kitchen was probably the best in Praia do Forte. The Hotel is five minutes away by foot from the 'city centre' and easy and safe to reach by foot.

Small, cute hotel, bit tired but clean and staff very friendly and helpfull. Sometimes the language is a problem but something that can be overcome. Fabulous beach/sea views from balconies with hammock. Breakfast had good selection of cakes and pastries if that's what you like with the usual fruit and juices. There is a wee hot plate to heat through... More

The location is absolutely fantastic, the staff is very helpful. If you like to be close to the elements and enjoy the sound of the wind and ocean, and are not worried by a little breeze going through the main balcony door, then this is the perfect place. Wifi coverage is a bit patchy.
