As most of Brazilian, staff can be really judgmental, especially women that often believe all Brazilian women who marry foreigns were "prostitutes" in the past. Reality is not always like that. I am a lawyer, married 10 years, with a child 7 years old and anyway a recepcionist trying to treat me as a "easy" person. After I step up,... More

Most of all we enjoyed the breakfast which was a buffet style. There was a vast selection of very good food. Contrary to another review, we found the staff... More

I chose this hotel, as it was in a good location and there was a room with a bath (spa) available. When I arrived at the hotel about 9pm after a long 27-hour journey, all what I wanted was to have a cup of peppermint tea which I brought with me, have a hot bath and go to bed. But... More

First time here after have been several times to Fasano and copacabanapalace. It is a different hotel, less luxurious but definitely more affordable when travelling for business. The view of the beach is amazing. Bathrooms to be improved
