Great spot for a few days in Bonito! The hotel is located about 20 min outside Bonito. We loved the open setting in the nature. Great hospitality, wildlife at the front door of your condo, and a swimming pool in a river with lots of fish were the highlights. Warmly recommended!

On the endo of the road, tranquil place surrounded by beautiful nature - river, woods...You can rent cayaks, river is full of fish, you can spot monkeys and plenty of birds, including toucans and macaws. Chales are clean, personnel friendly, good meals. Really enjoyed our stay there.

We stayed at Santa Esmeralda for half a week with our two sons, 14 and 12 years old. The hotel is located half an hour from Bonito but at the end closer to Buraco das Araras and other attractions in Jardim. You have to take 10 kilometers of dirt road but very well signalized. Just a little attention and you... More
