My partner and I were looking for a quick and easy getaway from Sao Paulo given that the forecast was for the low 80s (27-29C). We decided to book a hotel right on the front beach in Guaruja. We knew we wanted to be in Enseada and so we looked for a property close to the Quiosque (Beach Bar) that...

We booked a trip over a long weekend and understandably paid extra for it. While we liked the location, everything in the hotel was just average. Considering what we had paid, I was disappointed. The staff was very friendly, but breakfast completely overwhelmed them as the small dining room reached capacity quickly and guests stood around waiting for items. The...

We came here to get out of Sao Paulo for the weekend and what a good choice it was. The location is perfect and couldn't be closer to the beach. The staff are very helpful, the breakfast was good, the pool area is sensational and I would highly recommend staying here. The rooms are basic but clean and all you...

This hotel is a few steps across a small road from a gorgeous beach. What it's got going for it stops there. The cons: - No ambient sound whatsoever = very loud rooms. You can hear horns honking and dogs barking outside, and your loud neighbors through the walls and door. - Terrifying wiring = exposed wires in the outlets...

My company put me up in this hotel for a month while working temporarily in Guaruja. This was a great place to stay. Beach is right across the street, and comfortable walking distance to restaurants in the area. Definitely a 'holiday' place at the beach. During the week not very crowded at all, on the weekends it picks up and...

I'd give a 5 star rating if it weren't for the kiosk the hotel works in partnership. The location is superb, the hotel is a little worn out, but clean and e price is fair. As said, the kiosk in front, has the worst service of the entire beach. Such a shame...... The swimming pool is grandious! We loved it!!!...

Location - right in front of beach along coastal road, perfect for having a lazy afternoon along the food kiosks at the beach. Rooms - Clean and nice. Hot water for bath as standard. Free parking and wifi for hotel guests - good.

I had a great experience at Vicino al Mare. This hotel is owned and operated by a wonderful family that will do anything to make their guests feel welcome just like they are home. The breakfast is superb, everything is prepared homemade in their kitchen. No worries about the language, they have staff members that speak fluent english. I recommend...

Hotel bem localizado em fonte a praia da Enseada, com quartos limpos porém com cheiro muito forte de mofo. O quarto triplo onde ficamos era pequeno e muito barulhento ( se possível pecam acomodação no 1o andar). No geral o hotel e agradável, mas oferece um atendimento ao cliente muito pobre. Os funcionários estavam desanimados, e um tanto mal humorados....

“The rooms by the pool are very cool. Very 'resort' like. I was a little concerned at first by the kid's play stuff outside the door, but came to realize that it wasn't very much of an issue even during the Easter Holiday.”
