This was our 6th year at the Guarana and although we still really enjoy this hotel, there are a number of improvements required. For example, the shower in the bathroom was inadequate with little to no power. The mattresses - as mentioned by a previous reviewer - were very hard and uncomfortable. Not that we wanted to watch a lot of TV, but there was no BBC or ITV channels - this has changed from the past, when British TV channels were available.
Around the pool, there are not enough parasols.
Food and drink are both good, especially the range of desserts. As always, the service was excellent and we have no complaints there. The staff were all helpful and friendly - first rate.
Having visited here for 6 years now, we feel that the hotel needs some love and attention (and money) spending on it.
