We have been in Ponto dos Ganchos for the weekend. Great room with a jacuzzi, very clean, nothing to complain. Excellent dinners. Usually I do not like full-pension but in this case the taste and quality was very good anyway. We also attended a free cooking class by the chef of the hotel. Chilled at the hotels beach. Amazing weekend.

My wife and I stayed at Ponta dos Ganchos for our honeymoon and could not have been happier. What really stood out was the attention to detail that the staff showed us. Not only were they incredibly friendly, but also they provided many complimentary personal touches that we have never experienced before at any resort including (1) A pre-made bubble... More

It is by far the best hotel we have been here in Brazil. The place is beautiful and the food is amazing. Best breakfast I had in my travel life experience. We stayed in the simplest room and it was still great.

This resort was by FAR the best we have ever stayed at anywhere in the world. We went for part of our honeymoon and wish we would've stayed there the whole time instead of continuing on to Rio. We were upgraded to an even nicer villa upon arriving because of our honeymoon. The service was top notch. From the driver... More

It isn't just the place, the beach, the sunshine, the comfort, the flora and fauna surrounding you, the extraordinarily imaginative and delicious food, that make this an absolutely wonderful place to spend a few days' holiday, but rather the clever, intelligent, witty, knowledgeable, natural, kind and helpful staff who make you feel completely at home. I'd single out Evelin, Joao,... More

Swimming not good . Piped music awful . Beware the offer of a room upgrade . We went with Abercrombie and Kent who were not good or knowledgeable . The site is very hilly but the buggies were well organised .

We arrived not quite knowing what to expect. After a very quick check in, we were given a glass of champagne and driven by buggy to villa 6, perfectly positioned between the breakfast area and steps down to the beach. The villa was perfect for us. A lovely balcony with hot tub overlooking the sea. A lovely lounge, nice bathroom... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located on a private peninsula, surrounded by a fisherman village on Brazil's south coast, it is the country's most exclusive beach resort. Within a short distance from Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo or Buenos Aires, this romantic getaway delivers the dream: a ridge of Green Mountains runs down to the clear water of the Emerald Coast, where three little islands meet a stunning white sandy bay. Contemporary interiors in 25 beautiful bungalows mix comfort and refinement on a rustic style and the service that is second to none. The Restaurant lies within meters from the beach, provides a great wine list (with over 220 options); for lunch and dinner a diversified and sophisticated menu is on offer at any hour - the doors only shuts when the last guest leaves. If you are looking for something more romantic, cross a small bridge and get to one of the islands where you will find a gazebo that's specially decorated at night with flowers and candles for only one couple per night have dinner. There's an indoor pool, tennis, games room, snooker room, fitness centre, restaurant, bars, business centre, and even a private cinema. Massages, ecological trails, snorkeling, scuba diving, and boat trips are also on offer. Due to local landscape and in order to maintain calm and tranquility, we do not accept children under 18 years old. ... more   less
