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 we had was a tiny bungalow (Fernando Pessoa) with amazing views nonetheless (a small bedroom, a small wardrobe and a bathroom with a nice veranda. We complained about at the reception desk and they told us that it was the fault from booking which appear to be true (they are currently checking our complaint).
As I mentioned the bungalow was pretty small and we could not hang up our clothes,specially when you are travelling around the country for 18 days. Nevertheless, the room was nice, simple and clean.
The property was well maintained and the staff was very nice. However, they could be more pro active on the services they offer as it was the last day we discovered there was a spa. There was no guest book in our room with more information about services and facilities offered by the hotel.
Breakfast was generous but after a week it could be repetitive.
The good side of the hotel is that it is close to everything and the bungalows provided for privacy.
The food at the swimming pool bar was lovely and the cocktails as well (specially a lady called Jo, not sure, her coctails were fantastic!!).
Overall, we highly recommend this hotel.
