Quinta do Bucanero
Praia do Rosa (Florianopolis and the southern coasts, Brazil)
A member of the Roteiros de Charme group, this small hotel is on a hill behind the fashionable surf beach of Praia do Rosa. There are lovely views from the pool and rooms.
Pool. Whale watching (southern Right whales), in season, can be organised locally.
The public areas are beautifully decorated, below which are 10 comfortable rooms, a 15 minute walk from the beach (which also involves a short boat ride).
A lovely option for those looking for comfort and exclusivity, as long as you don't mind the 15 minute walk to the beach.
When to go
Best weather November to April. July to November for whales. January is high season so the beach will be very crowded.
