Service isn't very good, not much waiters for the amount of people in need of service but the view is amazing, you can go there to watch sunset have some drinks, listen to music and even use the pool. I might say that everything there is more expensive and I wouldn't stay there at hotel but to go there to...

After 4hrs traveling from Salvador we observed a thumping big hill going from the dock up the town...but like a sign from the heavens Hotel Portalo was positioned at the base of this hill right next to the dock. Great breakfast, comfortable and clean accommodation. Pool area was nice and bar had good prices. Only negative was having to walk...

Built into the side of the hill overlooking the harbor on Morro de Sao Paulo - offering a private bungalow for each guest. The accommodations are very comfortable, clean, and well appointed. I loved the hammock on our private porch facing the ocean with a non-stop breeze. This is not a luxurious hotel, but it doesn't need to be. The...

We stayed at one of the bungalows (Voltaire) and had a gorgeous ocean and rainforest view from the room and the hammocks in the balcony. Very private, romantic and incredibly relaxing! Staff were very nice and bent over backwards to help me when I fell ill on our second day there. I'm sure there are much cheaper pousadas on the...

My fiancé and I tried very hard to hold our wedding at Hotel Portalo as it was our dream site. We met with staff and decided to book out the entire hotel for all of our guests for 3 days. After the first meeting with staff, in which they were extremely nice and helpful, things just got worse and worse....

My husband and I really wanted to 'spoil' ourselves and go for a more expensive hotel while on a well-deserved vacation. I did SOOO much research and after the reviews on tripadvisor decided on this one. Honestly, I was so disappointed. The rooms themselves (unlike some of the other reviews) we were very pleased with. We had the Jose De...

The location of this hotel is wonderful, its right beside where the pier where the boat docks so you don't need to pay for a porter for your bags (you should if you stay anywhere else because the hill from the docks is very steep!). However being near the pier isn't a problem it doesn't intrude as its not very...

On our trip to Brasil we spent 7 nights in the Portaló Hotel. If you go to the Morro Island by Catamaran, you can walk to the hotel as it is on the right side of the harbor. We booked via booking.com a chalet superior (the description in the website was: separated loungued area, sofa,bathrobes, veranda...) However, the chalet superior...
