The hotel is located on the seafront in Playa de los Ingleses, in the north of the island of Florianopolis, in Santa Catarina. The hotel is a great place where infrastructure and excellent service meet all of guests' wishes. It is located in one of the most beautiful places in Brazil overlooking the sea. There is also a wonderful garden where guests can enjoy the beauty of the lovely beaches. Guests gain renewed energy from the sea and motivation and tranquillity from the nature. The establishment is a unique property on the shores of the sea with top quality staff which is prepared to accommo...More details

It was wonderful stay, the hotel is perfect, clean, the view was beautiful, staff is nice and helpful we don’t speak Portuguese so the staff was trying to help as they can. I recommend it for couples and families as well. and the restaurant food is delicious.

We stayed at the hotel this summer. It was the best decision to stay here. The room was the beach front room, it is very comfortable with a lot of space and the view is breathtaking, The common spaces are really good. The climatized swimming pool is formidable. In Floripa the weather is tropical so you can have some rainy days while your stay so is quite important to stay in a hotel with an option of doing something while is raining, fortunately this hotel have the climatized swimming pool. The restaurant is one of the best thing (Canto do mar). The food is astonishing. Special thanks to the Chef Antonio who prepared the best omelettes I have ever tried. All the staff was super helpful and gentle. We would like to give an special thanks to Jorge, who was the gentlest guy in Floripa. He took the time to explain everything about the island to us. He was worried about every detail, a really special guy! The beach at front is breathtaking, the water is super clean and is just one step from the hotel the only bad thing about the hotel was the we had to leave, don't think twice this is the best hotel at Floripa :)
We were very pleased with this top-rated Florianopolis bed and breakfast hotel

We also stayed at Costa Norte Ingleses on Praia dos Ingleses and were very pleased with this top-rated Florianopolis bed and breakfast hotel. The grounds are beautiful, especially at night, with a deck and good restaurant right on the beach (unique in Ingleses). The rooms are very comfortable with nice ocean views available. Waves from the ocean are wonderful to listen to. Facilities include an outdoor pool, heated indoor pool, wet and dry saunas, gym, A/C, refrigerator, and a very nice breakfast can be enjoyed overlooking the beach. A nice supermarket is right across the street. Beach and seafood lovers will enjoy a stay on Brazil’s beautiful island of Florianopolis (Ilha de Santa Catarina). Florianopolis and its beautiful white sand beaches and towns are safe to visit and walk around. It is also known as a mecca for surfers with great waves. This region of Brazil enjoys some of Brazil’s highest standards of living and was settled by emigrates from Europe (i.e. Germany, Italy) appearing more European than Latin. So we could enjoy some very nice hotels during our visit, we decided to stay in the north of Florianopolis and rent a car to visit some of Florianopolis’ other beautiful beaches. Driving around this island was very doable using Google Maps. We split our visit between Praia de Jurere and Praia dos Ingleses enjoying these nice beaches while visiting other beautiful beaches by car. Our stay at Pousada dos Sonhos (see review below for reasons why) made our stay on Praia de Jurere memorable. The town of Jurere is an upscale place to stay in Florianopolis with nice long beach and restaurants (some of the top rated in Florianopolis). The beach offers calm ocean to swim in. Staying at Costa Norte Ingleses provided a very enjoyable experience at Praia dos Ingleses (again, see our review below to see why). Praia dos Ingleses is one of Florianopolis’ finest beaches offering a wide sandy beach with gentle ocean waves to swim in. Praia dos Ingleses has become rather developed with hotels and high-price restaurants. Most of the beaches on Florianopolis have restaurants and other facilities. Florianopolis’ northern beaches are more developed with calmer waves and during the high season they are more crowded party scenes (but nice). Southern beaches are less developed offering more tranquil beach experiences. If you want to visit a beautiful completely undeveloped beach, stop at the nature preserve of Mocambique – quite lovely! Beautiful Praia Mole is a must stop – one of our favorite beaches we visited in Florianopolis. Several laid-back beach restaurants are located overlooking the stunningly beautiful beach. We liked Barraco da Mole mid way on the beach with its good view of the beach, nice music, good food and drinks, and friendly staff. Several paid parking lots are available servicing Praia Mole. Praia Mole has good surfing and during peak times (Summer – December to February), Praia Mole is a party scene with beautiful tanned bodies adorning this wonderful beach. We visited picturesque Praia de Joaquina that is close to sand dunes where people were having fun renting a snowboard and sliding down the sand. Praia de Joaquina is also a favorite surfing destination on Florianopolis with many restaurants overlooking the beach serving fresh seafood, local cuisine, and drinks. A paid parking area is located a few steps from the beach. Praia do Campeche is also one of Florianopolis’ very nice beaches where we had a nice lunch overlooking the beach. Other than a few restaurants, there are no hotels or condos on this long beach making Praia do Campeche a rather pristine experience. Parking is available close to the beach. You have a nice view of the Ilha do Campeche from here and from the southern end of Praia do Campeche you can arrange a boat trip to the ecological reserve there for nice hiking and snorkeling. Other highly recommended beaches located in southern Florianopolis are Matadeiro (one of top rated and accessed by hiking), Morro das Pedras, Armacao, and Pantano do Sul. The small fishing village of Armaçao has kept its older Portuguese heritage. As you go further south in Florianopolis, the roads go through small towns and driving becomes slower. Be patient if you want to visit these beautiful places in the south of Florianopolis. The reward is great because they are less spoiled by development where it is possible to enjoy a more remote beach experience. We visited Florianopolis’ Lagoa town on the southern end of Lagoa da Conceicao. The highlight was taking the 45-minute boat ride along the west coast of Lagoa da Conceicao to Costa da Lagoa leaving from the dock right next to the west side of the bridge between Lagoa da Conceicao and Lagoinha. Windsurfing is popular here. The best reason to visit Florianopolis’ Costa da Lagoa is the very nice seafood restaurants located along the water. We enjoyed the restaurant Cachoeira. Hikers will enjoy the approximately 2-hour hike from town along the forested lagoon visiting waterfalls and tranquil natural pools with chilled water. You can go on this hike, have a nice lunch, and return by boat. There is a small waterfall near Costa da Lagoa you can walk to in about 10 minutes. Travel Tip: The fresh shrimp from Florianopolis are amazing – try a combination plate with them done several ways. Sipping a caipirinha drink is a thing to do in Brazil and can be done in many favors – they are nice. Florianopolis’ modern downtown, called Floripa or Centro, is the political capital of the region. On the mainland is the industrial zone with its historical center on the island revolving around Praca XV de Novembro. Restaurants, accommodations, nightlife, shopping, etc. are abundant here. Florianopolis’ airport, located south of Floripa, is Florianopolis-Hercilio Luz International Airport (FLN). A note about the Brazilian people... The people of Brazil exhibit a zest for life with their love for friends, family, music, food, and laughter. Their willingness to be friends with you was shown throughout our visit. A friendly smile is almost always returned in kind and they often go out of their way to help you. We can learn a lot from Brazilians. Portuguese is spoken in Florianopolis Brazil. You will encounter some English, especially in hospitality. Due to the similarities of Portuguese with Spanish and the fact that most the rest of the South American continent speaks Spanish, we found trying some Spanish worked well in many cases. Some history... In the 1820’s, a newly independent Brazil realized the importance of this then frontier between Portuguese and Spanish Americas. The emperor invited German-speaking immigrants to establish a presence in this region. Many towns and traditions in Florianopolis look like you are in Germany.
Amazing carnival week - sun, beach, scuba diving
Reviewed 5 march, 2019
We spent the week of carnaval at costa norte ingleses - and we couldn't have chosen a better hotel. The beachfront view is breathtaking, the restaurant (inside the hotel) is one of the best in floripa, and the recreational team (Tio Andi) made our stay even more special. The only bad part of staying here is having to leave!

The hotel sits on the beach, a beautiful, clean, white sand one. The breakfast offered a variety of food to choose from, very healthy and delicious. Overall the price was too high for the service. The room was so small that we had to put one suitcase on the chair to be able to walk around the room. The king size bed was comfortable. Housekeeping service was very good but shower needed better cleaning. Wasn't impressed with location. The best part of it was the clear water beach and the view of dolphin swimming just a few feet from the beach. About 45 minutes ride from the airport and every where to go had to take a uber ride which was very good service.
