Highly recommend Zona Braza for a family holiday or even halfway travel sleep-over. Accommodation has everything you need for self-catering, spectacular ocean views, low tide is perfect for kids swimming & rock-pool exploring. Enjoyed every meal at the restaurant, they've outdone themselves with the overall decor (real holiday vibe), little lola (craft) shop for your Moz souvenirs and most of all best and friendliest staff! We were absolutely stunned with this gem of a place, only regret is that we have not been there sooner. Next holiday willl definitely be booked at Zona Braza again.

Hello . I want to say that this hotel is beautiful alil old but beautiful. I loved the rooms and the view most wonderful place I have ever been to. Love the food , you should improve on the breakfast and make it buffet. Very nice hotel. Your workers at the restaurant very nice people but I think they are abit to friendly and end but forgetting that their supposed to be working and not making fun o a client or saying things that will offend the client. You must not forget what you are their for, so basically I was offended by one of your workers at the hotel at the restaurant he kept pushing me to the edge and speaking to me unprofessionally. You must train your team so that they don’t think that they should speak anyhow they feel like to a client, we are not family . But other than that everything was okay. Except I would wake up and think this guys gonna say something stupid again . You need to improve on your stuff. De a eles formação do atendimento ao client . Para melhorar .

What a fabulous place - perfect little chalets far apart enough to provide privacy and peace, wonderful walks on the beach, lovely swimming in front of the hotel, the most amazing and attentive waiters and staff, excellent food if you don’t feel like self catering and lovely owners who are on hand to assist you if you need anything. This place is ideal for families or a romantic getaway for couples and is the best beach holiday you can imagine - relaxing, peaceful, beautiful and simple

We had to spend the night at Zona Braza before continuing on to Farol da Barra. Zona Braza was fabulous. The couple that run the place are super accommodating. Our room (3) had such a beautiful view of the sea. The staff were so friendly. The only draw back was that there was quite a bit of litter on the beach! Otherwise lovely place to stay!
