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

I stayed at the Sofitel in Florianopolis for a couple of nights. The hotel is located in downtown Florianopolis and faces the water. It is easy to locate and in close proximity to some good things. The first is that there are many restaurants immediately around the hotel. Second, there is a sidewalk the wraps around the perimeter of downtown... More

It's my first time in Florianopolis and I did quite an extensive research on hotels. I decided to stay at the sofitel and all in all I think I made the right decision. The hotel is perfectly located and I booked a room facing the ocean which is breathtaking. The room was clean and spacious but I agree that it's... More

I believe it is the third time we opted to stay at the Sofitel Florianopolis. Our previous reviews were fairly good, except for services that should improve and some minor refurbishing needed. This time, however, it's been very disappointing!! During check-in we were informed that the hotel was packed and there was one single (ocean front) room -- as we... More

This is a good hotel in Florianopolis, in a great location, beautiful view and close to some nice restaurants. The rooms are nice and the service is good. The breakfast is excellent, but the price for the dinner in the hotel may be a little high.
