After reading a book by the founder of http://www.jdvhotels.com/ and hearing what is possible with a hotel, this one is sub-par. Hotel: The pool has a nice view but such a weird metal frame, it's completely at odds with the beautiful nature it looks out on. The water was way too cold to use, and there was a couple in... More

I was really looking forward to spending 3 nights in a 5 star Non-Starwood property. The room we got was very expensive and quite small, bed spread was stained (somehow I dont like to be reminded that others have been in the room before, I know this sounds silly, but when I see bed stains, its a reminder of this)....

Would stay here again. Lovely breakfast, very pleasant rooms. A bit pricey but that seems to be a feature of all the hotel choices I looked at in Florianopolis. Staff were good - helpful and spoke good English.

I joined an event here and it was very good since the nice bedroom unt the restaurant and all support from hotel responsables. Just one point: Florianopolis suffer from lack of taxis. Take care when you go out (hotel finds to you) because to come back maybe will not be easy to find another.

Despite my previous bad review, I have returned to the Sofitel. The reason is there is no better option at Beira-Mar region (close to downtown). The hotel needs some urgent refurbishing (furniture, TV are old, horrible cable tv system etc). The view from the front room, the bed and the shower are great, though. L'occitane amenities help a lot too!

The hotel is decent. For a Sofitel, I expected more, but I guess that when you are in Brazil, the standards of luxury hotels are a lot different than in the USA or Europe. However, I am here writing this review because I am extremely disappointed at how the hotel handled my payment. I made my reservation through Expedia. Apparently,... More
