I stayed here for just over three weeks in May and June and having earlier been forced to stay at other hotels in Ribeirao Preto because the JP was full I can honestly say this is without doubt the best hotel in the city. It's a resort hotel but more than acceptable for business too. There's 3 well laid out swimming pools to choose from and towels are provided. The grounds are immaculately maintained and overall offers a very relaxing atmosphere. I initially stayed in a double room which had everything and more I needed - clean, lots of cupboard space, efficient and quiet AC, good size TV with plenty of English speaking channels, free wifi, fridge, good shower additionally this room had a balcony. If like me you need a non smoking room make sure you mention it on checking in as most rooms are smoking. Though some of the rooms are about a 5 min walk from the restaurants and reception you can call for a golf buggy to pick you up. Because I was working most all day and not returning till after dark I moved into a standard room which though a lot smaller suited my needs better, these are clean and functional with a nice rear facing view of the grounds from the patio which also has a couple of chairs and table. The hotel does spray insect repellant but it's advisable to bring your own if you intend sitting outside in the evening. The internet connection was very good with both wifi and wired connection available. Breakfast was one of the best I've had in Brazil being well presented with a good selection and the staff were especially helpful and friendly. A nice touch was either chocolates or dried fruit and nuts left on the bed each evening. The only downside to the JP is its location if you dont have a car and as my place of work was on the other side of the city it was necessary to get a taxi all the time but worth the inconvenience. Novo shopping mall is close by but not within a safe walking distance. All staff on reception spoke good English and were very accommodating when requesting late check outs I was even given a coffee whilst I waited for the free airport shuttle.
I have stayed in many hotels in Brazil and this is one of the best by far, great atmosphere, professional and friendly staff, good value for money and importantly - somewhere I looked forward to returning to each day and relaxing in during the weekends.
