Rating: Mid-range    

Vida Sol e Mar overview

The resort is divided in to two areas -the Eco Resort and the Beach Village. The Eco Resort has 29 rooms including the 9 original rooms which were built in the 1990s. These are mostly found in the area above the central dining room and bar. All rooms are ensuite and are equipped with satellite TV (Brazilian channels only), DVD/CD player, telephone and fridge. The superior rooms have air conditioning, jacuzzi, fireplace, kitchen, living room and balconies with ocean views.

The Vida Sol e Mar Beach Village is located below the restaurant and is closer to the beach. There are 12 luxurious villas providing superior quality accommodation just over 100 metres from the edge of the beach. All villas are extremely specious and have an extensive range of facilities including satellite TV, DVD player, internet connection, safe, minibar, jacuzzi, air conditioning and a fully equipped kitchen (oven, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and spin dryer). All have decks with ocean views, hammocks and chairs, and a fireplace. Some villas also have a pool or hot tub with beach view. The capacity of the villas range from 4 to 10 people, and the majority are set on two floors with separate access so are good for families, or can also be sold separately.

Meals are served in the Engenho do Mar Restaurant. The meal plans offered are bed and breakfast, half board and full board. The half and full board meal plan offers a fixed menu with a choice between fish or meat. The bed and breakfast option is recommended because it gives you the flexibility to enjoy delicious a la carte meals from the restaurant, or to explore the restaurants in nearby Praia do Rosa village.

This beach village eco-resort takes the protection of Southern Right Whales very seriously. Once hunted mercilessly here, the population is now growing by 7% per year.
