“soso”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2010

We spent 10 days staying in the treehouse. It was a lovely room in a lovely hotel with great staff however...

The joy of being in the village and able to walk everywhere was slightly crushed on our first night when the noise from a nearby wedding kept us wide awake until 3am. We would happily have stayed out dancing somewhere else but there was no where to go.

Also before we arrived, the beach bar had been washed away. Obviously not intentional however it had happened about a month before we got there and there didnt seem to be any effort being made to salvage or rebuild it.

The food in the hotel was really bad. Breaksfast was OK but we attempted to eat lunch once and dinner once and both times it was so bad we left it and went out for a pizza.

Likewise the food in trancoso off peak season was not good & often we were the only people in the restaurants.

Overall a lovely hotel and the staff couldnt have been more helpful, but sadly we werent wowed by trancoso.

I reluctantly am writing this review as i want it to remain a secret until we get back but with the press wilbert is already getting the word is out. This hotel is so tastefully done, with so much respect for the local culture and people. From johnny and morgan making us watermelon/vodka drinks at the pool, to carlos taking us to the capoera class, to going to the local town dance, to the owner wilbert upgrading us to nicer rooms this was one of our best travel experiences and we have travelled all over the world. Trancoso itself is amazing, safe and unique. its difficult to get there and thats the only chance it has to be preserved in this state for the future. The beach was beautiful and the day trip to praia d'espelho (mirror beach) was worth the hour drive over bumpy road to get to silvhana's restaurant and the deserted stretch of beach. .

People say when you go to Trancoso, you always want to find a way to come back, this statement is not so far fetched, from the moment of stepping into this magical village, to entering the hotel that would be my home for the next two weeks, you can see and fully understand why people make such a bold statement.
The moment you step into Uxua, you feel the troubles of the world wash away from you, there is a magic about this place, that can not be explained.
From the most stunning of rooms, well houses, to the most friendilest of staff, nothing was overlooked, nothing was too much trouble, the details are completly amazing, and imediately you feel that you are at home.
From the outdoor tree showers, the beds with the finest of cotton sheets, to the best mini bar that I have ever seen, to the breakfast fit for a king and all his subjects, there is nothing about this home/hotel that doesnt leave you in awe.
Wilbert Das, who we had the pleasure to meet, was a wonderful host, who took the time out to introduce us not only to the rest of the hotel, but to the locals, the beach and recomend the best places to eat, and made us feel very much part of the Uxua family.
The concierges (3 by the way) were fantastic, the bar staff who are happy to play hours of backgammon but also make dam good cocktails, the chefs, whose food was out of this world, the chambermaids, the gardners, EVERYONE in this hotel became someone you looked forward to meeting and talking too, this is a credit to the management, its not often that you find a team that can manage to be so open and friendly, but at the same time, perform and do their duties far beyond what one would expect.
I was in two minds about writing this review, Uxua is a little piece of paradise, and for selfish reasons I wouldn't want to share it with anyone, but it is impossible to deny anyone the magic of this place.
5 star luxury doesnt do it justice, its beyond being rated, you have to experience it for yourself.
