“Good team”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

The pros : Great Chef de village (Julien), with an excellent deputy, present on all fronts and looking after his guests. Beautiful location. Excellent for kids with traditional Mini Club setup.

The cons : access road in bad condition for the last 5 km or so, making it an uncomfortable ride. Internet access in some areas of the resort is restrictd or inexistent. As pointed out by other contributors, variety and quality of food seems a bit below par when comparing with other Club Med resorts (with exception for the very wide choice of bread including chocolate bread). Some of the tennis courts also require refurbishment.

The site and landscape are superb. Located on the top of a cliff, with a tropical, blue water and sandy beach just below. The cuisine ánd GO's were also above average some years ago. Our last visit confirmed what other friends were telling us: Club Med Trancoso is no longer the same. Cuisine has dropped to just acceptable and GO's are as energetic as a 80 y-old grandmother

Recently spent a week in this idyllic location. Rooms were large and airy and buildings appropriately spaced throughout the resort. You can do as much as you like or as little as you like. There are plenty of activities to keep you busy or you can enjoy the fantastic beach location or just laze by the pool. The staff made sure the stay was comfortable and were very attentive. Meals were lovely with good variety. The nightly shows were rather good as was the music thereafter. Tours were rather expensive though. Roads around the resort are not great so need to be careful if driving there or hiring a car. Some fantastic places to visit nearby if you want to do something else. Highly recommended get away. From an overseas perspective I found it to be extremely good value. Highly recommended

Room Tip: a) Our room was slightly away from the main buildings so was rather quiet but a little walk (which w...

Me and my husband stayed at this hotel from October3 to 6 and we we're expecting a much nicer hotel!
First when you get at Porto Seguro airport you have to take a shuttle ( cost R$300,00 for we both each way) that takes 1 hour and 30 minutes in a terrible road .....
Most of the staff is not nice and not helpful! And also in these 4 days I found one lady who could speak English in the front desk!
You have to pay to wifi even in the common areas!
It wasn't a pleasant experience!

Our four days stay at the Trancoso Village was a great experience.
The installations and the public areas are beautiful.
Very sympathetic and helpful staff (even a small problem in check-in was solved beautifully).
The food was excellent (much better than 3 other villages we have previously stayed), we may suggest a small improvement in the breakfast menu;
Two of the night performances were charming & very well performed (with the talented "Palito");
it is true that we "face" around 220 stairs going to the beach, but the way is beautiful, it is good to compensate the extra calories we gain at the restaurant and there is an hourly van service...

The place is beautiful. The cliffs to the beach are lovely, great facilities, good food variety. However if, God forbid, you should want a coke (or anything else for that matter) to take to your room, which is not included in the all included option, there is simply no way of getting one. And staff seem to be befuddled by this request and yoiu keeo being referred from one to the other nad nothing happens. Internet sucks - better not be there with communication needs. On the other hand, tourist guides are very knowledgeable and pleasant, as long as you speak Portuguese.

Room Tip: Rooms are all similar in separate building with 4 or more rooms, some of them can be quite far away...

Really worth, even though it is expensive. Good food, excellent activities to the kids, beautiful beach and different experiences for adults like circus. We went in a low season to avoid the crowd. The beach is not very easy with kids as the sea is dangerous.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Tucked away in a coconut grove well away from the tourist roads, the thatched roofs of the Village's Bungalows are like a relaxing haven perching on superb cliff tops. Down below, a long sandy beach runs along the ocean's edge, a sight that can also be enjoyed from the neighboring golf course. The place is teeming with wildlife, with sloths clinging to the branches and multicolored parrots setting the sometimes wild, sometimes peaceful pace of nature, in a subtle Brazilian blend. ... more   less
