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 for that kind of restaurant in my opinion. The food was ok, I'm sorry to... More

Just got back from a very windy night at the beach club restaurant, and I must say that the hotel needs to train their staff better if they want to call themselves a 5 star hotel. Being a vegan, I asked the waiter for vegan options - it took more than half an hour for him to get back to... 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 of sand. This euro trash style doesn't suit the island, the chairs colonising the beach.... More

My husband and I just loved everything about this place. The beach, the views, the sunset over the water (not possible in most places in Brazil), the cocktails, the food, the choice of music...I could keep going on and on... AMAZING!DEFINITELY GOING BACK!....

The location of the DPNY is just perfect. Right in front of the beach in Ilhabela where many sail boats are docked. the view is also facing the continent and the city of Sao sebastiao. Besides that it is the only hotel listed as a 5 star in entire Ilhabela although I do not consider it a five star hotel.... 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 hotel- otherwise, we would have spent the evening there as well. As it happened, we... 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 service did not prove to be true from our experience. Everyone was professional and very... 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 every penny. The restaurant offers a very complete menu, decent prices and generous portions. Service... More

The beach club at this hotel is great, with lounge chairs, square and round beds, a great spa. We liked it so much that we barely went anywhere else during our honeymoon!

Didn't stay here but have been many times for drinks, food, spa etc. Generally speaking it's a nice hotel and the closest thing to a resort you'll find in Ilhabela. They do, however, think they own the beach and don't always blend into the community as you would hope and expect. If you're looking for an authentic pousada this is... More
