Very disappointed in the hotel, absolutely nothing to do except sit by a pool or on a beach. No activities available at hotel or nearby, not even a gym. The room is very small and dark. Little tourist information available at hotel except for a...More

I visited the restaurant with some friends and we had an ok experience. The service was friendly but very amateur to be fair, slow and confused. The Maitre was walking around communicating on a radio while guests were trying to enjoy a meal, too casual...More

Seeing this pretty understate little island slowly get taken over by this kind of stuff makes my blood boil. Even the once totally unspoiled Juliao now has a similar try-hard hotel plonked on it with the ubiquitous long chairs splattered all over its beautiful stretch...More

As a Christmas treat, we spent the day here with my in-laws. The facility was gorgeous, with a lovely hotel, restaurant, spa, and pool. The beach was mostly private and the views were absolutely stunning. As it was last-minute, they were fully booked at the...More

This was our first trip to Ilhabela and we were excited to go to DPNY based on all the positive reviews on TA. It did not disappoint. We were hoping to stay at the hotel, but we couldn’t get a room. All the complaints about...More

Gorgeous hotel intricately decorated with Morrocan-style mosaics that set the romantic and sophisticated beach tone. Friendly welcome with open smiles, the place is not cheap since it charges a fixed fee for the day in order to use the beach, pools and spa, but worth...More
