This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed. The room is not clean at all, the towels are dirty, the doors do not close well, the elevator does not look safe. The pool and the gym are disgusting! It would better to close de door.

Hello Fabio. Thank you for your rewiew, it is very important to us. When you stayed here, the elevator was probably being repaired and this upgrade is now finished. We hope to see you again in your next visit to Florianópolis and we expect to serve you better! More

Room service was poor, didn't clean the bathroom just changed towels. Drain clogged. Keys didn't work most of the time. One day there was no one working at the breakfast, the food was not enough and most people left the place without eating.

Comfortable, very good breakfast. Good cleaning service. It has a good restaurant-bar and swimming pool. The view is great, you can see the Hercílio Luz Bridge if you stay in a high apartment. Across from it you can walk in the Parque da Luz.

The rooms are good but I had some issues with the room service. Actually is not a room service as long you have to order by the phone and go down to the reception to get your food. They were also unable to do a simple change in anything from the original menu. A simple change in the kind of... More

We stayed at Castelmar Hotel in early January 2015 and had a lovely time there. Our room had an amazing view of Hercilio Luz bridge. The hotel is well located, within walking distance from the high street shops - we wanted to stay in the city centre and not near the beaches as we stayed for only 1 night. The... More

This hotel is very basic. It seems to be an option if you are looking for a sleep-only hotel. Cost is very low and the quality you get is somewhat questionable. We stayed here for 4 nights during an extended holiday where the hotel was fully booked. Staff was gentle and happy to help but they were clearly understaffed (eg.:... More

The site of the hotel shows many nice photos of good accomodations and premises. However, when I got to the hotel, first of all, I received very bad treatment from the recepctionists, who were all rude and totally lost. The elevator is really old and kind of scary. Still, my biggest disappointment was when I got to the bedroom. It... More

I and a job mate stayed there during 3 nights. The room was old fashion and dark. The furniture old and the toilet didn´t present a very good appearance…the courtains could not be opened properly, 3 lamps were broken and the mini hygienic shower didn´t run. The key electric system was supposed to turn the devices off, but didn´t work... More
