“Pay for location!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014 via mobile

Great location, right on the beach. The pool is beautiful and a great place to relax. But really, that's all this place has to offer, which is ok if you want some serious beach and pool time. But I like a comfy bed and ok room to come back to for a shower, movie and good rest but I found the room and bathroom too small, the bed very uncomfortable with thin, scratchy sheets. The tv was really old and the room was smelly although seemed clean enough. Breaky was ok, a big selection of fruits, cheese, breads, and omelettes. But the eating area is really sad! It could be amazing with such a big space and nice outlook but needs some effort. Staff were friendly.

In truth Maresias is quite small, and quite boring. The hotel itself is fine, quite average, although it has a nice pool and is situated right next to the beach. Probably a great place for young children and surfers, but not so hot otherwise.
Take care with insect population here - quite blood thirsty.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

The location ist perfect with direct access to the beautiful beach. The rooms are large and clean with a nice bathroom. The restaurant and the swimming pool are also quite nice. Internet access is 10 real extra. The breakfast was good, but the other food for lunch and dinner was only average and quite expensive. All in all prices are not cheap there. The Caipirinhas were good. The staff is very friendly and speaks english very well.

Room Tip: I would recommend a room on second floor because of the better view to the beach.

Great location on the beach. Very nice clean beach. Beautiful views. Rooms are not nice and very basic. Bathrooms are ok. Breakfast is good. A la carte dinner is not good. Nice pool. Very expensive room rates.

Had a great stay! Have a 1 year old child and there were plenty of options for him. :) The hotel workers were very helpfull also. I had two surfboards but no where to leave them and they took care of them for me during my stay.

All the hotel apartments have a nice ocean view (we preferred the 2nd floor); the swimming pool is charming; breakfast was very generous and tasty/; the staff friendly & helpful.

Excellent location (right on the beach), a good pool and large rooms summarize what the hotel presents as its best offerings. Snacks at the pool were OK, but breakfast and other meals were not as attractive as they usually are in good Brazilian hotels.

Although the rooms are large, they haven´t seen any modernization efforts for a long time. Old and out of fashion furniture, no table on the terrace (meaning no place to leave your drink while appreciating the sea - a shame).

Staff is friendly, rooms are clean, parking is included. But unless you´re aiming to stay all the time under the sun (hoping the weather is nice), there are no options. Taking everything into account I found the hotel cost high when balancing it against the offers.

Room Tip: Definitely ask for a room facing the sea.
