We choose this place because It was very close to Rio, so no traffic. No surprise, IT is a small resort, I believe 4 stars level, but everything was perfect. My room (105) very close to the lobby, the service was very fine and everything was fine. Lot's of options for the kids. I definitely recommend.

We picked-up this hotel to spend 5 days just the four of us (Me, my wife, my son 3y and my daughter 10m). Couple of reasons for that: beach hotel, all meals included, not as far from Rio de Janeiro (less than 2 hours drive) and plenty of kids attraction. We decided for the ground room, beach balcony what actually... More

The beach, the wild animals to see, the beautiful swimming pool, the circus acctivity, the three restaurants, the bar, the guitar singers, the "Mini Clube" and - last but not least - the quality and efficiency of the personnel, make this place a great choice to spend a week with sons & grandsons!

This resort is fabulous! I don't care about some bad reviews. My families had a such a great time there and looking forward to go back there again. We went there for Christmas package and wanted to stay more until New year but brother in law had to work. All the rooms are facing to the ocean and it’s right... More

Quite close te Rio de Janeiro, this hotel did not fullfill my expectations. The food is fine, the entertainment options were fine with few aquatic sports and fun. Oh, and their was only one swimming pool for the whole hotel.

About 1 hour from Rio airport. Great beach.Food was really good, leisure facilities good. Rooms a little basic but you can walk from the patio door in your room straight onto the beach. The place is extremely relaxing. Not 100% sure about the water quality in the sea. But went in for a couple of swims and no issue. Overall,... More

Beautiful place with a gorgeous beech and great views of the ocean and surrounding area. I stayed here during World Cup and although the rooms are dated and need upgrading (by European standards) they we're clean and comfortable. My room opened out directly on to the beech and was only ~50 metres from the waters edge. It did feel like... More

Our experience at this hotel was disappointing. The rooms are very much from the 1970s and do not appear to have been upgraded since then. The air conditioning did not work in the first room we were given and the room smelled moldy. When we asked to move to another room, the air conditioning was not much better. The furnishings...
