The hotel located in front of the beach. Which makes its a good location. Brazil car rental is cheap. If you can, rent a car from the airport, otherwise The taxi will cost you around R$40 one way. The rooms are basic and comfortable , they have a good breakfast. The fish market is walking distance. There you can buy... More

This hotel is ok but its a tad run down. We just needed somewhere to sleep for the night so it done the job. It doesn't seem to be a large hotel and the rooms were also a bit small. The staff were very friendly, particualrly the chap who works the reception desk at night. Breakfast was ok but as... More

We stayed there during World Cup 2014. It was affordable compared to the crazy prices commanded in the area for those days. The location was great for us. On the far side of Beira Mar, where it is nice and quiet. Service was OK, depending on who you got it was great or not so good. The room was basic... More

A simple room and it is dated. Clean and tidy. Smple breakfast. Value for money for what you pay for R200 a night, despite this is during World Cup time.

The hotel is located next to a beach with a small fishing harbour, which may mean really bad smell, bear it in mind if you’re very sensitive to fishy smells. It has four stars, but it sometimes seems like an exaggeration. The rooms were ok, the swimming pool in the hotel seemed slightly dirty, but who cares if there’s a... More

Hotel staff is friendly though not conversant in English. Daily breakfast was adequate not special. My room was very small and sufficient. I loved my beach view. The hotel is nicely located across from an interesting fishing community. It is a nice walk to the outdoor evening market. All in all, for the price, this s a good place for... More
