The room I staid in had a funny smell but nothing to uncomfortable wifi in the room was not very stable. I loved the breakfast with a lot of options. My room had a huge bed. Th hotel has very nice facilities like several pools with a nice view a small gym.

This is a very good resort. The setting is pretty high off the beach which we like despite the hike down and back. Restaurant is set up beautifully to take advantage of the dramatic setting. The location is at the very northern tip of Ponta Negra beach (which is beautiful) so a lot quieter than the chaos further down the... More

The hotel is a little old fashioned but this is compensated by the fine staff. Our room maid always gave me extra shampoo when I asked and provided clean towels every day without my even asking. I gave her a tip when we left and she was pleased. The swimmimg pool was super clean and a perfect temperature. Their work... More

Really good resort, confortable rooms, helpful staf and good restaurant. Breakfast and dinner are usually included. The swiming pools area is amazing. Don't miss the typical tapiocas (both seet and salty) at the breakfast.

You definitely have to lower your expectations to be happy with this hotel. Front desk ok. Nice free parking garage. Everything else is poor, the restaurant is appalling (breakfasts as well). Ponta negra is a crowded beach hardly enjoyable on a high tide. Choose a cheap hotel - if you will - and rent a car to avoid the city... More

The bed was good, the staff are very attentive and the breakfast was also very good. The shower water was not hot, there was a leak in the bathroom sink to wet the... More

Stayed at Rifoles while attending a conference at the convention centre. Hotel was clean and comfortable. Wifi was decent although a bit intermittent. Staff were very helpful, especially since we lost our luggage and needed help to get it back. Would definitely stay again. Four stars due to noise and renovations.
