Our family of 4 just returned from 5 days at Villas de Trancoso. We visited along with another family and we all loved this place! It is located about 7 minutes from town on the beach (if you stay in town, you are not on the beach). The beach is very beautiful and the waves were perfect for the kids to boogie board. With only 10 villas, you feel like you have the place to yourself and there were very few persons on the beach. The staff and service were outstanding! The restaurant was excellent and we highly recommend this paradise!

My wife and I (both in our late twenties) spent five nights at Villas de Trancoso as part of our two week honeymoon in Brazil. We would thoroughly recommend the hotel to anyone - of whatever age, with whatever interests, at whichever time of the year (unless you desperately need the buzz of a big town, in which case you may be looking at the wrong place.)

The hotel itself (ignoring the bedrooms for now) is one of the most fantastic places we have ever been: a beautiful, wild, deserted beach that - in our view - would compare favourably with the best beaches in the world; immaculately kept, dramatic gardens; comfortable, well-appointed buildings.

The staff are friendly, courteous, generous and extremely helpful. A real positive for the hotel and a very good reflection on the type of place Villas de Trancoso is and wants to be. From the front desk staff, to the waiters, to the gardeners - all were delightful people.

We stayed in one of the suites, which is the lowest level of room I think, and it was a great room nonetheless - large, spacious, great bathrooms, very comfortable and an outside area with a table for an evening drink. If they'd told me it was a higher category of room I would have believed them without question.

The breakfasts, which are included, are sensational. More choice than you could want. The rest of the food and drink menu is excellent also.

As for the town itself, Trancoso is a lovely place. We were there in August - the Brazilian winter (we had three days of glorious sunshine, one overcast but warm day and one rainy day) - and so things may have been slightly sleepy for some people's tastes. But for lounging on a beach, you can't go wrong; watersports are readily available; the Quadrado area of the town - the main tourist hub - is a lovely spot with lots of great shops (some more high end than you might imagine) and restaurants. It is a five minute taxi ride from the hotel, but taxis are very easy to come by (the hotel will order you one if you wish) and relatively cheap (at the time of writing about BRL 20 - about £7). When it rained, we watched DVDs from the hotel's collection and had some beer and cocktails in the hotel's very comfortable lounge area. Not a bad way to spend a rainy afternoon.

The only proviso I feel bound to give is that for the majority of our stay the hotel was not full - I am sure that standards would not drop when the hotel is at full capacity though, judging from other reviews on this site.

All in all, a superb hotel, in a lovely town, with the most amazing beach and lovely people. I think it is a steal for the price - I imagine for the same sort of hotel in other places in the world you'd be looking at twice the price. If you need the buzz of big towns, this may not be for you. But for a chilled out holiday revolving around a great beach and good service, you can't go wrong with Villas de Trancoso.

Stayed: August 2013, travelled as a couple

It has been 2 years since our last visit to Trancoso and the Villas of Trancoso. It is hard to believe, but our experiences at this resort continue to far exceed all our expectations. They have everything clicking smooth and each and every employee works together as a highly functioning team. The peace, quiet, sun, and non-intrusive attentiveness of the entire staff was the perfect getaway combination. The reception staff was warm and welcoming, and able to help us with any and all questions; housekeeping was impeccable; the beach was ours to enjoy with very few other people (try the drink in a pineapple from the beach bar – it’s awesome!); and visually, the entire grounds with the flowers, plants and other vegetation are so beautiful that it melted away any stress we brought.

Our activities included kayaking, golf, and lots of fun in the sun on the beach. This is the place to enjoy a meandering trip down a beautiful river on a kayak – plant life and views you just can’t see or enjoy from the road! The golf was incredible – no crowds and a course that is challenging and kept up to first class standards. The beach was pristine! We enjoyed a walk/run on the beach to start each day – nobody else for miles – our beach for our total enjoyment!! The beach bar and staff from the villas are great. We enjoyed more hours of relaxation, sunshine, and tossing the American football then we deserve!

We loved every member of the staff, the accommodations, and mostly….we loved the experience of visiting and relaxing in a paradise!!

We just returned from one great place. If you are looking for somewhere to give your life a much needed adjustment or perhaps just take a pause from those busy daily activities. Or maybe you have a romantic getaway in mind where you can share those special moments in a paradise-like setting you will not soon forget.That would be the Villas of Trancoso. We found it to be a serene, special place that emphasizes service that makes one feel like royalty. Of course there is the excellent food and fine wines. The Villas has people from for all over the world as guests. Some quite famous. So there is a commingling of cultures that kind of brings to mind romance and intrigue. Funny, I was walking to the cabana for breakfast one morning and noticed a gentleman sitting in a corner table working what appeared to be a puzzle. Turns out it was Bill Gates. Not that it mattered much since the Villas are a pretty private place. One of the highlights for me was a stroll on the barren beach as the sun was setting and tide was out. It was a most peaceful time and everything was right with the world. Not too shabby. So....give it a shot...you will like it I am sure.

Since reservation until checkout, I was contemplated with great efficiency!
I was welcomed with warm smiles and professionalism!
Not a single detail was overlooked
In order to make my Trancoso experience perfect!
Beautiful landscape garden, amazing Villas, great food and warm pools, are among the qualities that singles out this place!
But then, there is the most important one, feeling part of this great family that works in harmony enriching your soul and make your trip to Trancoso complete!
