Been here 7 times, always had a good time. The last 2 times we have booked and paid for a sea view room, as my husband likes the beach and I like to sit on the balcony. Unfortunately the last 2 times we have had a low floor (after requesting a high one) and only a partial sea view.) We... More

We had a lovely stay recently in Santa Catarina. It is perfectly located on the quiet end of the strip at Praia da Rocha. The bedrooms were clean and kept clean during our stay. The hotel would be basic enough as there was no pool but easy access to the wonderful beach wouldn't make it a huge issue. The breakfast... More

I personally disagreed with the top reviews this location got, maybe it's based on the price that everyone booked. However, I booked mine through a travel flight and hotel package so I can't comment on value for price. However, the hotel room was old and the A/C had to be turned on to the maximum to feel slightly cooler in... More

Really nice 3* hotel in Praia de Rocha. Excellently placed right near the beach, so convenient for restaurants shops etc. Large comfortable, clean rooms. Only given 4 stars because the breakfast was poor. 16 of us stayed on this trip & we all thought that Overall it was good value.

You get what you pay for, this hotel was pretty cheap but we felt it was a good deal. No frills but the bedroom was a good size and had everything we needed. It was clean and we had nice toiletries in bathroom. We were not there in high season so it was pretty quiet at night. Breakfast OK. The... More
