The hotel is very nice, the reception is friendly but the whole place, including hallways and elevators stink and it's very dark. The location is amazing, couple blocks away from the mall and the little town. Right in front of the beach with chairs and umbrellas available. The breakfast was very good, nice variety and the "tapioca" was the best!... More

Rifolés was great. I specially liked the breakfast, I will always remember having breakfast (with plenty of food and choices) looking over the horizon of beautiful northeast Brazil! My only complain is that, they've put me and my 2 friends on a very bad bedroom and it was hard to fall asleep at night because our window was near one... More

We had more expectations about this hotell. The hotell itself is really nice. Beautiful area. Nice common areas as restaurants, pools, children area, reception, beach etc. But I was really disapointed with the hotell rooms. They are really old and well used furniture. It has a old odor smell in the room. They should really renevate the rooms. The staff... More

This is a typical brazilian hotel place for people who like a lots of people around themselves. Entertainment seems to have a high demand, the rooms and especially needs renovation. Breakfast is OK, parking at the hotel very convenient, the beaches are frustrating, hotels all over the place

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
