“Best hotel in Ribeirao Preto”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

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.

The hotel is prepared for business conferences. The staff is helpful and will cater to your business requirements. The rooms are comfortable and will allow you to rest well enough for another day of work.

Only letdown here would be its locations, but besides that it has great service, great rooms and all you should expect from a hotel. Rooms are big and have all you need, good tv, shower, great beds. Nice place to stay. Oh, they AC works well (since its a hot place, you should search for AC when booking) its an absolutely must-have.

Not cheap, by the way, but its worthwhile.

I´ve been to this hotel nearly 18 years ago and returned this weekend. Rooms are big and the TV couuld be a little bigger in order to fit the room. Bath was clean and spacious. Breakfast was very good. Pools are good and heated. It is anot a resort as their site says, but is a very good option to stay in Ribeirão Preto.

Overall the rooms and the property are in pretty good shape. One doesn't need to look too hard to see that some renovations are needed, and they are working on that. The walls are Pretty thin and I could sometimes hear my neighbors next door and upstairs.

The beds were comfortable and the staff was very accommodating. There was always an English speaking individual that could help us with our every request. The Internet was faster than most places, and the laundry service was excellent. I would stay here again.

Depending on your standards there are 3 good options in town: Hotel JP, Araucaria Hotel or IBIS. To start with IBIS, it has nothing else to offer than the basics of a hotel but it is 100 meters from Ribeirão Preto's most upscale shopping center Ribeirão shopping. That makes it a very cheap and convenient way to stay for a night; longer than 2 nights is not advisable. The Araucaria Hotel is a nice tower, with a nice Italian restaurant opposite of the hotel (Tulio) but the staff is rather arrogant and the meeting facilities are underdeveloped for such a place. Between the new part of the city where many activities you may like take place and the airport one will find Hotel JP. We lived there in 2010 for some weeks. The hotel is built according to a resort concept and provides you with a nice cost/benefit ratio stay. Clean, quiet, amenities working whether shower, plumbing or the internet and a friendly responsive staff. Excellent breakfast and good dinner menu and ditto cuisine. A few outdoor pools and a gym next to many conference rooms and facilities. Travel time to the new business district of Ribeirao Preto is 10 minutes and that is also the case for the airport, but in opposite direction.

Room Tip: Ground floor is nicer than first floor.
