We’ve been travelling round Brazil. This is by far the best hotel we’ve stayed in. Service is excellent. Except there was very little service by the pool.

One of the best hotels around. Great pool area albeit small. Excellent rooms with even better beds. Excellent service too. Recommended.

8/10 Very good

It was pleasant except for the customer service. We never got the key to the safe box and the hotel does not have wash cloths (smallest towel). Another comment is that only people at the front desk speak English.
