For many, Ilha Bela offers a small bit of charm to an otherwise charmless region, and on Ilha Bela your best hotel bet (for couples) is DPNY. While it does not fill with the jet setter types it was originally targeted for, it still has a pleasant, upbeat vibe, with a terrific restaurant. The rooms are in good shape, the beds comfortable, and the bathroom/shower generously proportioned. Convenient valet parking. Great semi-private, peaceful beach. We felt very safe, though we generally feel very safe on Ilha Bela. Amazing what a ferry will do. (Not quite Nantucket, though ....)

Only complaint? The incessant faux-upbeat house-style music at the beach. I was there to relax, not dance.

perfect spot to be in a couple trip, we enjoyed the food and and structure. Truly recommend the venue and the service. Tróia restaurant is a thing to look after. And the beach club not easy to find around.

Visited there three days last week and absolutely loved it! The place could not be more relaxing. There are super-comfortable beds everywhere. Slept like a dream in the incredible 4-poster bed in the room, then napped on the beds next to the pool under an umbrella. Napped the next day on a bed in a cabana on the beach. There are nice little bistro tables next to each of the beds, so you can order snacks and lunch. Then, when the food arrives, you can switch to the table. When you are finished, just slide back onto the bed. No need to wait around for a check. The food was delicious! The buffet breakfast included an omelette and tapioca bar, where they will custom make it. There are many fruits, meats, fish, cheeses, breads, juices, etc. I already talked about the bedside lunch service, but the dinner was the best. The restaurant Troia is very elegant and offers very high quality food and a friendly sommelier, who knew all of the wines on the extensive list. There is also a very romantic Beach Club dinner restaurant and a Japanese Sushi bar. In addition to the comfortable rooms and awesome food, the pool scene is great! There is a DJ or mix-tape playing the perfect chill music at a reasonable volume. Lastly, the staff is very friendly and attentive. Many of them speak English. Definitely will be back on next trip to Brazil!

Room tip: The more expensive rooms give you more space and a better view.

I had great expectations considering the ads and the reviews of this property. At the end of the two nights I might say that besides the fare (BRL2,500 all-inclusive for a weekend) the stay was worthy. Rooms, restaurants, the pool and the furniture on the beach are all well maintained. Staff is usually friendly and service is good, with a few exceptions. Breakfast and lunch are quite good, with good assortment of treaties. Service at the pool and beach is fair, but prices for extras such as beverages and snacks are a little overpriced. For a couple of drinks, a bottle of water, a ceasar salad, a sushi and a squid salad a BRL350 check was presented. But overall it was a good stay mainly for couples. The hotel is located at Curral beach, which is not long, and makes the experience almost unique for the hotel patrons. Although not directly related to the hotel, going from/to Sao Paulo to the property may be challenging for a 125 mile onw-way trip . At the end of the summer season returning to Sao Paulo might take up to seven hours by car depending on traffic in the Tamoios road.

Room tip: Rooms facing the pool and beach provide a quite nice view.

Beautiful hotel and we will go back but it deserves only 3 stars. The facilities are beautiful, the service is excellent and the food is of great quality. However, climate control in the suites (the AC is located almost inside the closet) is a problem and the black flies (borrachudos) are vicious. It doesn't matter how much repellent you use, the bites are going to be all over your body. There is limited cable TV and wifi. The bed is hard. Don't expect freebies of any kind. Even the coffee in your rooms will be charged. Room service is limited to non-fried foods and the drinks in the little fridge are warm at best. Five stars hotels do not have these issues. Having said that, there is nothing else of this quality in Ilabelha. My advice is not to spend extra in suites or water view rooms because you will not be in the room at all. Get the small room, save some money and enjoy this beautiful place (even with the few little issues).
