They said that this is a 5-star hotel. However, compared to other 5-star, I'm not so sure. Anyway, the price is fairly cheap (as a 5-star hotel). But price don't lie.
Anyway, I went here for company yearly meeting, and we booked the meeting room (ballroom) for 100 people. The sound system is good, with ample meeting equipment and space. At night, we also held a gala dinner in one of the ballrooms, and the arrangement was nice.
Swimming pool is usual. Futsal (indoor soccer) field is made from cement, so be careful if you are too excited, you may hurt yourself if you fell to the ground.
Rooms, they have some parts which are just newly renovated as condotel. If you are lucky enough, you may get this newly renovated rooms. Some rooms are having balcony, with pool view, some others are facing outside the hotel.
Location wise, it is quite central, near Braga district, where you can find interesting things. If you like shopping at factory outlets, Dago and Riau area are reachable in 20-30 minutes depending on the traffic.
Food, I experience lunch and breakfast, not so much varieties as in other 5-stars. And, the chef seemed to fave lamb as one of the dishes. Those with high cholesterol level may need to refrain themselves from taking the lamb.
There was a problem at the night of our stay. The front desk mis-input the room number so that the same room was sold to two person (one is our team member, one is not our team member). Although everything were settled that night, this hotel may need to improve their internal control procedure. It's very dangerous to just reset and give the room key to another person while the identity was not properly checked. Guest belongings can be missing as a result of such incident.
Pool view might be better
