We had a fantastic time during our 5 days at Patachocas. The resort is in a massive block. Soccer fields, tennis courts, great pools and coconut trees everywhere.
We managed to do Yoga, Snorkeling, kayaking,.. Staff was very affectionate, sympathetic and extremely friendly. Two members of the staff made us feeling as part of their family. I forgot her name - perhaps Dalila, (but remember her son name, Caio - really sorry for that) and Andre, both working in the outdoor areas supporting and entertaining guests. She was just so lovely to us and with our baby. That is the kind of staff that every hotel/resort should have.
The manager and also other receptionist were also smiling and were always very helpful.
The beach is perfect located for a family or for couples looking for some peaceful time.. Away from the crowd and in a beautiful spot of the island. Commuting to the city centre is not too bad.. Old bus but it is part of the adventure.
We travel a lot but this was definitely one of our best experiences.
We highly recommend it.

After a long 4 hour trip by boat, road, boat, foot and road we arrived at the resort. Nice apartment rooms and bungalow rooms equipped with full bathroom and minibar. Unfortunately TV channels showing olympic games could not be reached during our stay.
The swimming pool is great for kids but the swim up bar is great for couples too. Slow preparation of drinks though.
Privacy in resort is high - well shielded from potential intruders.
All typical sports can be done - tennis, beach volley, swimming, snorkeling, stand-up, kayak. Beach is quiet and no waves - ideal for families with small kids. Little opportunity to find reef fish unless you swim or kayak out to area behind the stony beach area some 300m out.
Best to take the flight back from the air strip behind the resort - it takes 430R$ but takes you to SSA in 25min. Good alternative is catamaran for less than R$100 but 1.5hrs of travel.

Good room, not a big resort, only with breakfast included, no all included, but with a good restaurant that serves quite good dishes and in big portions. Good pool, in front a pleasent beach, that with the low tide you can see a natural pool on the sea, just walking on the sand almost one kilometer !. Offer massages, bikes, kaiakes, stand paddle for rent. I would come back, eventhough the hotel is on 4th Beach, some how far from Morro de Sao Paulo downtown

I have mixed feelings about this resort. Let me start with the pros: Located on a beautiful beach, excellent staff that helps with beach chairs, umbrellas, etc. Amazing breakfast! Comfortable beds, working AC.
Cons: My biggest problem with this hotel was the shuttle bus into town. We had read before booking that the hotel was far from town, and that they had a shuttle. So, we made an active decision to choose staying on a lovely beach further from town. However, the shuttle doesn't run regularly. For example, at night -- when people would want to go to town for dinner, the shuttle leaves at 6:30pm and 8:30pm. And on the return, the times are 9pm and 11pm. The times just aren't convenient, and frankly, that shuttle should run EVERY HOUR.
My other big gripe with this place is that there is only ONE restaurant, and it's overpriced AND bad. We are on an island, so fine, everything is expensive. But at least be good! I live in Brazil, so I am used to the monotonous and mediocre food. But if you are going to overcharge, at least be average... versus crappy! And as a resort that is NOT located close to any other options for food, at least have more than one restaurant and more than one price point. There was NO beach/pool cafe, no store to even buy water. Just the one restaurant.
So, while the location, breakfast and comfort of this hotel were very good, I wouldn't stay here again, based on the shuttle and the lack of food options.
As an aside, the rooms do have mini fridges, so you can stock up on your own (cheaper) water and snacks. And if you walk on the beach a few minutes, there are food stands/restaurants where you can eat fresh fish -- they were delicious, but also expensive. (note: when I say "expensive," I mean in reals -- if you make your money in dollars, you will live like royalty in Brazil:)

This hotel is great, everything from the food to the customer service is excellent. The only bad thing I can say is the location isn't the easiest to find but once you're there it's beautiful. They have loads of activities available for all ages. I'll definitely be returning here
