After reading all the reviews posted here, I'd say that nothing really surprised me. The hotel is better suited to famlily trips. I didn't mind the hustle and bustle of having children all around, but couples looking for peace and quiet had better stay away from this hotel. I liked the spacious room and bathroom, and the gardens are well-kept. It's a nice place to enjoy an inspiring morning walk before breakfast. The meals are nothing to write home about. The breakfast offers a reasonable variety and, in fact, is better than the lunch and dinner menus. The food is just average, I wouldn't say it is what you expect from a 4-star hotel. Concerning spirits, they offer scotch (Johnnie Walker and Ballatines) and sparkling wine that are ok; however, the vodka available for drinks and caipirinha is Orloff, which the worst one in Brazil!
Another point I'd like to make is that I think the hotel should pay more attention to the number of employees in charge of cleaning. There are plates and cups lying around, and it takes a while for somebody to come and collect them.
