Beaches of southern Brazil: Quinta do Bucanero

Quinta do Bucanero

Quinta do Bucanero is an intimate, service-orientated guesthouse built into a hillside near the beach in Praia do Rosa.  Its 10 apartments are all of one standard  - and except for minor differences in décor, identical. All have air-con, ceiling fan, private bathroom and balcony with hammock and ocean views. Communal areas are decorated in a local rustic style with lots of wood and stone, with some exotic Asian motifs. Facilities include a restaurant/bar, an outdoor Jacuzzi with small pool, and TV/games room.

Access to the beach is through a wide, well marked (but steep) trail through lush vegetation and around a small lagoon that's good for swimming.

The hotel is 90mins' drive from state capital, Florianopólis with the final 20 mins along a dirt road.

What our experts say

I have visited this boutique-style hotel and my colleague Claire has stayed here, and we agree that it is a gorgeous first class option in Praia do Rosa. The management is constantly thinking of ways to improve the property, and the attention to detail is very good. The English-speaking reception staff are very friendly and helpful, with loads of tips and useful information about the area. The two huge new suites are absolutely stunning and well worth the extra cost.
