Melia Angra Marina (formerly Blue Tree Park)
Angra dos Reis (Angra and Ilha Grande, Brazil)
This is a large hotel on a private beach, complete with galleon ship for children to play on.
Priding itself on being very child-friendly, the hotel offers some rooms with access to baby kitchens, and many rooms have cots. There is a choice of restaurants and night clubs, with live jazz and blues at the weekends, and a piano bar. Rooms overlook the gardens or the mountain.
Friendly and modern, but the buildings are quite formal and grand, with long corridors and spacious public areas.
