1) our bedroom door sign: "not disturb" wasn't functioning so we had to manually created one to avoid unwanted visitors. 2) internet in the bedroom wasn't working, which was a pain as we were on a work holiday trip and we needed daily access to internet. they tried to charge us for internet usage even if we hadn't used it....

Hotel is ok but nothing more quite expensive. Staff ok but not very helpful. Near the lighthouse and some bars and restaurants for other places you have to take a taxi. Stand is outside hotel. Room was spacious but noisy. Breakfast is good with views

The most disturbing part of this hotel stay was the arrival... when we arrived the hotel looked closed. It was late in the evening, but there was not a single light on anywhere. The hotel is down a rather deserted street with multiple buildings under construction. Very unpleasant welcome. The room was large, with a decent bathroom and a relatively... More

This hotel is a far cry from other 5 star hotels in other parts of the world. It would be fair to say though that the room fare too is a lot higher than at a Ritz-Carlton. I should really not complain because I was an invited guest of my friends in Brazil. We came here for the Confederation Cup... More

Went there for a congress. Had a room booked for 2 people but only a single was available. Got another room but had to pay for an extra bed. The staff was rude, including the manager, who was specially abnoxious. The hotel was full, so at most times of the day there was no hot water in my room or... More

I booked a regular suite but unfortunately they lead onto the carpark and the windows don't close properly. You need to book a sea suite to enjoy the soothing noise of the waves and enjoy great views. The breakfast is nice and the pool is very nice as it enjoys views of the ocean.

This place has a nice view, right on the ocean and a nice pool overlooking it. The room was a great size too. However, I paid for a suite and ended up with a really dated and horrible bathroom which I didn't expect. That did drag down my assessment of the place a lot.

Very well located, literally above the sea waves. Friendly staff. Free continental breakfast. Gorgeous pool with bar service. The spacious rooms are very clean but my minibar was empty and the pillows have seen better days. You still have to pay for internet access in this day and age.

I consider this hotel rather average. It is quite big and at a first glimpse looks quite ok inside. If you look closer, however, you will find mould allover the hotel. This is not uncommon in rather tropical areas and close to the sea but you would not expect this in a hotel of this class. There is also a... More
