This hotel is better suited to Brazilians who have a car and is less than ideal for foreign travellers. Just getting out of this hotel to buy supplies will set you back a minimum of R$50 for a return taxi fare. The hotel restaurant food is not great and is way overpriced. You can get far better food at the... More

We stayed here during the world cup. Despite its nice resort and things to use we really couldn't enjoy the resort to the fullest due to the rain. The rooms are a bit small but all have an ocean view and the bathrooms are pretty big. The restaurant is good and the free buffet is good too. I recommend this... More

Me and my husband went to northeastern Brazil and Natal Submarino Travel gave us this hotel as part of the package (Fortaleza, Fernando de Noronha, Natal, every hotel worse than another, but let this Vila da Praia): The apartment had three beds and there was nothing romantic to see the ugly furniture, old air conditioning (I'm not talking about that...

Stayed here for a couple of days as part of our World Cup adventure. I read some of the negative reviews and have to disagree, I think it's a terrific place. Our room looked out over the ocean, it was small but very comfortable, clean and functional. Staff was very friendly even though they had trouble with English and the... More

My wife is at this hotel preparing to watch the US play Ghana. She loves this venue and is pleasantly surprised. She is a hard lady to please. It took one hour to get from the airport to the hotel. She was greeted nicely and taken to an excellent room. WiFi is superb. Breakfast is offered.

I stayed with my wife during an urological meeting in November. The first thing we noticed was the air conditioning. It had a bad smell and was really noisy. We had to ask for a room change but in the next one the situation was even worse: it didn't function and the tv reception was terrible. The breakfast seemed unappetizing,... More

I felt it necessary to write this review as my husband and I stayed at this place a while ago for one week, It was absolutely awful, the staff were rude, even though we speak Portuguese!, the room was awful, the food was not edible and it forced us to take expensive taxi rides out every day most days twice...

We stayed at the hotel in September and there were a number of things we greatly disliked. First of all, we had paid half board and at the time of choosing the meals, we found we had nothing worth eating unless we paid extra for the meal. We ended up dinning somewhere else. The second issue we had was internet.... More

There weren't bellboys at the front door (I couldn't see bellboys in the hotel at all, actually) and the receptionist was very impolite, rude and not helpful at all.The room I stayed for a night had a very bad decoration and It wasn't comfortable at all....
