Quite close te Rio de Janeiro, this hotel did not fullfill my expectations. The food is fine, the entertainment options were fine with few aquatic sports and fun. Oh, and their was only one swimming pool for the whole hotel.

About 1 hour from Rio airport. Great beach.Food was really good, leisure facilities good. Rooms a little basic but you can walk from the patio door in your room straight onto the beach. The place is extremely relaxing. Not 100% sure about the water quality in the sea. But went in for a couple of swims and no issue. Overall,...

Beautiful place with a gorgeous beech and great views of the ocean and surrounding area. I stayed here during World Cup and although the rooms are dated and need upgrading (by European standards) they we're clean and comfortable. My room opened out directly on to the beech and was only ~50 metres from the waters edge. It did feel like...

Our experience at this hotel was disappointing. The rooms are very much from the 1970s and do not appear to have been upgraded since then. The air conditioning did not work in the first room we were given and the room smelled moldy. When we asked to move to another room, the air conditioning was not much better. The furnishings...

Amazing resort with attractions to all ages and all moods. A "can't lose" attractions is the Safari where you can see several animals in their natural habitat. There are a very good entertainment area for kids with monitors that you can leave your children and have fun in the delicious restaurants, beach or pools.

The trip will take about one hour and fifteen minutes. The hotel has been improved since its opening and today offers a large array of options, beside a "private" beach. I call it "private" because by the Brazilian constitution no beach can be called so...There are boats to rent and the hotel is very clean and comfortable. A nice swimming...

Distances: Rio de Janeiro: 100km / Sao Paulo: 382km / Angra dos Reis: 60km / Paraty: 142km. THE RESORT In a farm with grazing, rivers, preserved Atlantic Forest and a lot of space. Facing the sea, with a 1km long beach, white sands covered by coconut trees and calm sea, Portobello Resort & Safari appreciates the interaction with nature, which also refl ects in the type of construction and the decoration privileging the natural materials, local handcraft and the casualness of a big “beach house”. Wide plain, open areas enable the contact between the guests and offer several opportunities for the performance of several types of events such as get-together parties, weddings, celebrations, animals auctions and sports events. It has the whole structure of leisure and conventions. Perfect for families, couples in honeymoon, leisure groups and for those who enjoy sports and contact with nature. A true paradise for childrens! ... more   less
