“5 star and beautfiul Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2013

Hotel do Frade is a 5-star, full of natural beauty and many luxuries services. I am really impress by this location and unique service when I visit this resort with my family. This resort offers various sports, hotel divided by superior and deluxe categories, amazing waterfall and natural swimming pool.

Let me be clear, this is not a five star resort. However, for the price, I found the accomodations more than adequate and the staff--without exception-- were gracious and helpful to a fault. I found it helpful to at least have knowledge of some basic Portuguese and that let them know that I wasn't an "ugly American" abroad. Overall, the services (food, amenities, recreation) were, I felt, more in line with a resort charging about 50% more. Also, its proximity to Paraty and Mangaratiba (and hence Ilha Grande) made it a great central location. In all, I would highly recommend it for anyone looking for something in this price range.

I loved this hotel. I have been there during a conference on September 2010. We loved the place and the attractions of the hotel. I particularly loved to walk through the beach. And also there are a lot of options of rooms, and the service is very nice.

Room Tip: There are a lot of options of rooms. For example, you may be attentive if you want a room near the s...

Frade is a strong brand of hotels here in Brazil, however, my last visit to Hotel do Frade Golf and Resort was very disappointing. The hotel is old, needs an urgent renovation. The bed sheets were old and with stains. There are three restaurants inside the hotel, but only one was working during the week. I ordered a dessert but it was not "available".
The pool is good and warm and the beach in front of the hotel is also good with a calm sea. The shower products are L`Occitane, positive point.

To sum up, for a "resort" category, it was disappointing. Since the rate is high, I was expecting much more. People say that Meliá Angra and Vila Galé Angra are much better and new.

Staff was very helpful. We had a problem right at the start, our room was not big enough to accommodate our family of 4. They worked very diligently to find a solution and gave us different options and we settled for an upgraded room. All the rooms we saw were not updated. They weren't terrible, just not what you'd expect at this price.

Food was good, there was a lot of variety.

Kids' club was nice, they seemed to be nice and attentive to the children.

The activities offered were pricey and not that great. And don't even think about doing a manicure or a massage, both were terrible and ridiculously overpriced.

Location is beautiful but hard to reach if you don't have a car. Beach doesn't have white sand and it's annoying with all the boats around. I could see oil in the water.

AC units were super loud and it was either too cold and loud or hot and humid and quiet.

Angra dos Reis is about 3 hours away from Rio de Janeiro. It is a place to go to get on one of the many tourist boats and go spend time in the pristine, uninhabited islands of the coast. The boats visit many beaches, stopping for a quick swim in each. We are talking white sand, nice clear (cold) water.
The city of Angra itself is NOT worth spending any time in. Skip it. Stay at a nice resort instead. Go to the Frade. There is a beautiful Golf course, well kept tennis courts (the clay ones were great). The kids will love the horses, petting zoo, and horse-pulled buggy. The beach is semi-private (Brasil does not allow private beaches). But only hotel guests make it to the secluded stretch of sand. The pool has a waterfall feature and zero gradient entry (which is popular with the little kids). There is also a kids club (but not enough activities in said club). Oh, there are bikes, a beautiful hike to a waterfall...I was extremely satisfied with the hotel location. The food buffett was plentiful, varied and staff was friendly. They also have boat rides (recommended).
What I did not like: no evening entertainment. Once the sun is down, there is little to do. They have a bar (just ok) and a pool table. Seriously lacking evening entertainment.In similar resorts in Mexico and Hawaii we were always treated to shows or live music or a DJ at night. So this was a let down. If you get bored, get the car, drive 45 minutes past the hotel and enjoy BEAUTIFUL Paraty for dinner and a stroll. This is a historic well preserved town with restaurants. The rooms are clean and very roomy. Some details need to be taken care off (peeling paint in small areas, sink drain that is slow)...But I really liked the property otherwise.
