This place reminds of the houses described in Gabriel Garcia Marquez's novels. Go read one of his books and you will find what this place looks like. Except in the center there is a pool instead of a garden. Very relaxing stay. Two or three nights will allow you to do everything there is to do in Arraial do Cabo.

If you need something done the employees will... More

There was no electricity or running water in our room, and no air conditioning. The pool is essentially a cess pit. Absolutely filthy, terrible breakfast and they wouldn't even give us a discount for the lack of electricity and water, which we tried to argue until they called the police!!! Not a friendly bunch at all! Please, of you want... More
