Amazing resort with attractions to all ages and all moods. A "can't lose" attractions is the Safari where you can see several animals in their natural habitat. There are a very good entertainment area for kids with monitors that you can leave your children and have fun in the delicious restaurants, beach or pools.

The trip will take about one hour and fifteen minutes. The hotel has been improved since its opening and today offers a large array of options, beside a "private" beach. I call it "private" because by the Brazilian constitution no beach can be called so...There are boats to rent and the hotel is very clean and comfortable. A nice swimming... More

It seems to be a family destination favorite: kids can get entertained while their parents rest; while for couples it is not so wonderful. As a resort, you are kind of stuck in it. If the weather is good, you can spend the day on the beach, otherwise, despite of the different activities, you'll soon get bored. There is a... More

If you can´t go to Mexico this is a fairly good option as it is close to Rio and a half decent road will let you get there from Rio in about 2 hrs. BUT, and that is a big BUT, as long as you don´t mind waking up early to the very loud sound of music and a would... More

Not the cheapest choice in Costa Verde, but closer to Rio than Angra. The accomodations are very nice. Clean, comfortable but somewhat small for the price. Great beach and great views of the ocean from all units. Ours was a standard room, and we had to walk a long way and climb up three flights of stairs, so if you... More

A localização do hotel é excelente, e os quartos são até agradáveis, mas o hotel peca em diversos aspectos como a variedade de pratos disponíveis para almoço e janta,e ainda na execução deles. A comida é fraca e as sobremesas péssimas. Me hospedei por quatro dia e por três vezes encontrei pratos sujos na pilha de pratos limpos do buffet.... More
