Hotels in Praia do Rosa, Santa Catarina, are mostly pousadas, meaning they favour cozy over mega, personal attention over lip service, natural over artificial.
Some hotels are listed separately because they stand out in terms of amenities, comfort level, services and price. But you will find lots of comfortable lodging options in Praia do Rosa for a decent price.
One of the reasons the Santa Catarina coast is so appealing to families is the availability of bungalows and family-size rooms - which are also great for groups of surfers. But private, comfortable bungalows are also part of what makes Praia do Rosa a top honeymoon and romance destination in Brazil.
