“Amazing location but needs some updating”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

Everything about this place gets five stars (the location, service, grounds, good, etc) with the exception of the actual rooms. They are outdated and need some work. Our bathroom was decent but there were plumbing issues (toilet ran all the time and the shower took at least 10 minutes to get warm). On the plus side, we only slept in the room as there was so much to do and see. The nearby beach is gorgeous, which we had mostly to ourselves during our early September visit. The boat tour is definitely worth the money (try to do the 5 hour) and be sure to do the quick hike to the nearby falls. They are within walking distance from the hotel and far exceeded our expectations. We left around 3:00 in the afternoon to the see falls and had a beautiful walk back watching the sun start to set over the mountains. There is also a nice little spring for a quick swim which is marked by the signs. We spent two days here then one in Paraty. We wished we had one more day so we could have visited Ilha Grande. The ferry times, however, were very limited so we couldn't squeeze that in. Also note: If you have children who can't swim, the pool and canal are within a few short steps out of your room so keep a close eye on the kids and bring life vests (the hotel also has some, although not the greatest for our toddler).

Room Tip: Ask for waterfront room.

Dear Guest,
we apprecciate your coment and sincerelly appologize for any inconvenient in the room,
we must remind that you stayed in one of our rooms and not in all of them, so talking about your specific suite a simple regulation in the toilet was needed and it was done in 5 mins by our maintnance staff.
Eventhough we constantly improve and update all our areas and rooms, du to your coment we paid double attention to the suite you stayed in and recently renovated it ; since that feedback from our guests have been great.
Regarding the swiming-pool, as in any hotel parents should keep an eye on their small children, and we trust on that sense of responsability parents must have,
4 of our rooms are closer to the pool and that has been a positive issue and never a negative one.
Boats to Ilha Grande usually depart at 8 am, 11 am, 12:30 pm, 15:30. During higher seasons they add more trips (schedule might change). At reception we offer any information requested by guests regarding tours, schedules, public and private transportation, etc; we are comited in making guests enjoy the most of their stay in our beautifull region and offer the best service possible.
Best regards
Eduardo

I stayed at the Angra dos Reis Boutique Hotel for 5 days and loved every minute of it. The hotel's best quality is its balance between maintaining professional, attentive hospitality and a caring family atmosphere. Its also located within a beautiful and safe neighborhood, so I didn't hesitate to relax and enjoy my stay. The owners are absolutely wonderful- a hard-working, friendly bunch that make their customers their #1 priority.

The restaurant boasts authentic, fresh menu items and I could see that they keep the kitchen area CLEAN, which is very important to me. They also make a mean caipirinha ;) The room was clean, well furnished, had great air conditioning, and I fell in love with the spacious shower. A gorgeous pool is the centerpiece of the establishment, but you also have the choice to go on a boat tour (a service offered by the hotel). The tour is completely worth it; I was so glad that my friend and I could see all of the beautiful islands up close. You can also get to a nearby beach in 5-10 minutes.

Overall, I didn't want to leave. I always had the choice between relaxing or going on an adventure- the perfect mix :)

I travelled in Brazil with my husband and 11 year-old son in the begining of May 2013. We visited Iguazo Falls and Rio and stayed in some of the best hotels there, but this place - condo Porto Frade and this lovely familly hotel will be always a part of my heart!!
This hotel is not luxurious and maybe needs some refreshment, but it so cosy, comfortable and warm, a real home away from home. Dont hesitate to stay here for romantic and relaxing vacation.`Porto Frade is amazing place- safe and calm, with secluded private beach.Nature is so picturesque, take advantages of taking the boat provided in the hotel and visit many beatuful islands around.
But the most important is the hospitality of Ezequel, owner`s son.He menaged to do us him special guest and we became good friends at the end of our stay.Thanks Ezequel, we are looking forward to seeing you in Bulgaria, like you promised!

We stayed 6 days in the hotel and we had a wonderful experience.

The room was spacious, clean and quite separated from the rest of rooms.
Breakfast was very healthy, plenty of fruits and the staff makes very nice omelette!
Ezequiel, the owner is probably the most helpful host we had, he always went out his way to help, made our stay extremely welcome, it feels like staying one of your friends's house rather than the hotel! Thank you again Ezequiel!

We would strongly recommend this place, it is very safe, within walking distance to the beach and you certainly will enjoy the hospitality from everyone!

I have loved the hotel! The place, the food, the people... the boat trip, the breakfast. Everything was perfect!
Staff was very nice and helpful! Edu you are a STAR!
The room and bathroom are big and comfortable. Very cozy room and comfortable bed.
The food is incredible!!! You must try Moqueca de peixe!!!
Free WiFi connection.
In the neighborhood you have nothing to do by night, but if you are looking for a place to relax, then you won´t be disappointed! This is the place!

the hotel is really nice, is placed in a private, secure neighbourhood with a bay, 30 or 40 minutes away from the city center. The rooms are cozy, well decorated, comfortable, luminous, as good as new! The breakfast is a real brazilian one, you have a lot of options to choose to start your day the best you can. The hotel has a swimming pool with views to a cannal and landscapes. If you have a car is the perfect spot to get to know angra and paraty. If you don't, you can take a bus just walking to the entrance of the complex to go to those destinations. Ezequiel the owner is really nice and offers tranportations and car and boat trips to know the bests islands around. You can also walk o go by a transfer boat to a private beach inside the complex. Fatima, one of the hotel employees, was really nice listening and explaining as much as she could in portuguese even though we didn't speak the language, but we understood each other perfectly!

This is a real hideaway gem. It is in a most exclusive resort, clear, warm waters and surrounded by a mystical landscape of palm trees and rain forest. Besides going to the beach and enjoy a ride in a power boat you can also wander around this very large resort to visit waterfalls, lakes and haciendas.
I would recommend a visit to anybody.
