This place is amazing, the house is right at the beach on a more quiet part of Ubatuba, but not far from the centre of town. A beach to hang out with the locals, great waves and beautiful view. The house has a very nice and open atmosphere, rooms are great with nice beach view balconies. The living room is...

I love "Tropical Dolphin"! Already at the first night, the staff welcomed me like I was one of their own. A Beautiful and clean place, I already see it as my second home and will always remember the time I lived there.

I came for 2 nights and ended staying 3 weeks. Great location right by one of the many beaches. Close to town. Parking available, and a selection of different rooms. Lots of good local advice and a warm, welcoming atmosphere effortlessly dispensed by Daryll and family. 102 beaches to explore, or just relaxing on the one out front. And you'll...

What a delight... We planned quite last minute to visit Ubatuba, not really knowing what to see and where to stay. Luckily we found this guesthouse online and took our chances! It was one of the most pleasant stays throughout our Brazil trip (2 weeks); the place itself is very homely and clean, and the atmosphere makes you want to...

Despite the size of the town, there's no shortage of guesthouses and hostels in and around Ubatuba. However, I couldn't recommend staying here more. Located literally on the beachfront at one of the town's cleanest sites, this brilliant little hostel has everything you need. The rooms are simple and clean, the beds are comfortable, there are fans, mini fridges, TVs...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a family run hostel and pousada infront of the beach and have been open for 15 years. The guests are made to feel at home as we have a humble place that was built slowly over the years with a lot of blood, sweat and tears so it does have a soul to it with birds and rabbits been part of the family. .We will do our best to guide you on what ever you want to do during your stay. The hostel/pousada is in a cheap, residential eating area so you can see the true Brazilian way of life as it is compared to the down town tourist part. Bicycles are the main form of transport and there are cycle tracks that will take you all over town and to a lot of the surfing beaches. Trails, bike hire, surf boards, can be arranged by us. Only the four more expensive sea view suites are a good size with a big veranda, a hammock and table. The suite has a fridge, TV, fan and sleeps up to four people.The other rooms are smaller basic economic suites do not have all creature comforts.There are photos when booking. We have a kitchen area to use connecting to the lounge. We have 101 beaches to choose from with most of them being in a protected rain forest reserve. We take guests out on day trails to visit the rain forest and its native people. Surf boards and bikes can also be hired. The cycle track in front of the property will take you downtown and to 5 other beaches in the south. ... more   less
