we spent a great experience in the hills with the right wines, fireplace, first quality service to celebrate the wedding anniversary! Recommend the breakfast, make sure you try the petropolis bread and guava cake ... the best is that it has not time to finish and can be in the comfort of the room. Surely i'll be back another time....

Wonderfull place to go with your Family. The hotel is far from the city, and you can relly relax! Chalets no so close to each other make you feel like you are the only guest! Rooms are big and make you feel ate home. I went with hubby, baby and parents. The hotel even made some baby soup for my...

We spent an adorable weekend in Pousada Tankamana. The Superiour Chalet with jaccuzi was great, the fireplace kept us warm during the winter nights. The breakfast is served at any time ( which was great), the food in the restaurant is awsome ( we had one dinner and one lunch, the prices are way, way more reasonable than in a...

I booked a weekend in the end of December, just before Christmas, thinking on going somewhere quiet after the rush of some complicated weeks at work. I can now assure that there was no better place to go. Comfy and big rooms, romantic settings, fresh weather, one of the best breakfasts I have ever had, a relaxing natural pool, among...

This hotel is a perfect weekend escape. If you want a change from the Rio beachscene this is the place to go. The chalet was cozy with a welcoming lighted fireplace. Service is near perfect, very friendly and always ready to assist. The restaurant serves great food. We arrived rather late but the kitchen stayed fully operative until we had...

We ended up going to Tankamana during Carnival in Rio de Janeiro as we live in the city for about a year now and wanted to go somewhere quiet. Tankaman has great comfortable rooms, and we had a suite with a bath and 2 hammocks. The resort is well kept, clean, quiet and the staff is simply wonderful. Everyone was...

This was the second time I visit Tankamana, and It got even better. Althoug I stayed in a cheaper room (n. 7) because the hotel was totally full I enjoyed as much.

Once again we stayed at the Tankamana and had a very nice time there. A hidden place in the mountains surrounding Rio de Janeiro, in Itaipava, a district from the "Imperial" City of Petrópolis. If you are looking for a quiet (very) place surrounded by trees, this is it. It is a few kilometers after the end of the tarmac...
