My husband and I stayed at the Especial da Vila for 4 nights during our South America honeymoon. It was the best, the most relaxing and romantic part of our trip! From the welcome drink to checkout it was an amazing experience. The service was fantastic, the staff extremely pleasant and helpful, the food is to die for, the views are beautiful, our villa was like heaven on earth and was cleaned 3 times a day which is pretty much everytime you leave to enjoy the restaurant/beach/game room/massage/pool. The dinner on the island is a must for any couple with amazing wines, and as I don't like seafood the chef was nice to prepare a mixed menu for us so my husband could still have his beloved seafood while I could enjoy beef, chicken, etc. What I loved the most about the resort was the little 'surprises' that await guests upon return to their villa...one day we had a bath drawn for us with rose pedals sprinkled on top, another day rose pedals on and around our bed, the morning coffee/cappuccino at breakfast showed up with our initials and heart shape on top written in chocolate, and it just goes on and on! There was a tiny mix up one night with our laundry, and they were quick to apologize and sent us a bottle of wine to enjoy. We had such a great time that my words are not giving enough justice, and we still talk about it often and I'm sure we will for a long time. Worth every penny and I would go back in a heartbeat! Thank you for the great experience!!

Myself and my wife stayed at Ponta Dos Ganchos for four nights and we cannot fault a thing. What the resort is fantastic at is the high quality level of service and attention to detail.

We both a few additional requirements which were catered for execptionally well, again highlighting the execeptionally high level of service.

The Manager Miguel was a well spoken man who always had time to say hello and see if there was anything we needed. Theo, now what can we say about him... is there a nicer man in the world then Theo?

Overall the whole time in Ponta Dos Ganchos was fantastic and if you're having doubts about staying here... no need.. OUTSTANDING !!

If you want some relaxation and the feeling of being king&queen, Ponta dos Ganchos is the place to be. The service is absolutely briljant and de rooms are amazing!
At our arrival the jacuzzi was (filled with water and roseflowers) waiting for us, with an nice bottle of champaine and fresh fruits nex to it. There is high-speed (wire-less) internet in the room, a bar, sauna, big TV and an perfect rainfall shower. Dinner was verry good, but some times the taste could have been a bit better/stronger. They serve the best breakfast ever. It's like an 6 course breakfast dish.

At the beach they do provide towels of course, but als nice havannah flip-flaps. And if you don't want to walk the way up to your room, a golf-taxi is waiting for you.
Alltogether, the scenery, the service, the rooms, the food make this an outstanding place!

My husband and I stayed at Ponta Dos Ganchos in February 2009, but I still think about it and what a wonderful experience it was - so realised I needed to review it. The food is so so good, the best breakfast ever experienced - and then you get 3 courses lunch and dinner - everything included except alcohol. Pricey yes, worth it - totally! If you go only for 3 nights - it will be wonderful. We were upgraded as they had an empty villa - lying in the hamock, using the sauna, swimming in the bay, getting a massage (costs extra), watching a film in front of your log fire - this is one of my favourite hotels in the world and I've been to some amazing ones.

Someone could argue the hotel is not cheap, the beach is small, there could be more variety in the food, the staff could speak better English...
However this is the best hotel I could have chosen for my honeymoon and my expectations were quite high considering what I had read and the price I was paying...
It´s a place made for couples. I find it the perfect place for total relaxation.
Like the rest of the reviews say, the service is amazing with lots of attention for details
If you have the money go for the emerald villas, I believe is a total different experience... you will not be disappointed
Also recommend the private dinner in the island

Stayed there for 4 nights. The expectations were really high because of the web info and the comments posted here, and of course, because of the rate per night. The room was incredible. Spacious, beautiful, very quiet, amazing view, everything very confortable, from the bed, to the sofa, the deck area, etc..
The service was the best. The attention to details is quite a thing. Whenever you leave the room, someone comes and puts everything in the right place. Even if you just have seated in the bed, when you come back the bed is again perfect. The staff is very friendly. There are so many little details that makes you feel confortable that is difficult to name all.
Definitely one of the best places I ever stayed. The room is so good, that you have problems to enjoy the rest of the facilities since you are so confortable there.
