It's one of those old resorts where you get the package of a big swimming pool, restaurant, a beautiful and calm beach and activities for kids (and adults as well). Wifi was essentially non-existent, and even 3G was minimal. Restaurant was good (not great), and there aren't many options around (unless you have a car and are willing to drive... More

As in every hotel there are pros and cons. I stayed there for 9 days and my highlights are the following: Pros are: - Nice beach - Nice food. More alternatives won't hurt.. - Nice entertaining. All the guys there are very easy going. They made us having a very good time playing beach volleyball with them. Cons are: -... More

We had no option for our vacation in Maragogi and despite the bad reviews we stayed at Praia Dourada. With low expectations, the hotel seemed just ok. The real sensation is the beach right in front of it. The water is calm and crystal clear and that is pretty much what you need to be happy in Maragogi. We had... More

Mid size beach resort which rooms have seen better times. Very good location at one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen. Location is a bit isolated, you need a taxi to go to town for shopping. Rooms are basic but clean, bathroom tiles are dark grey, which gives an unfriendly impression, however the are presently being repainted... More
