The location of this hotel, at the end of the 3rd beach and beginning of 4th beach, was perfect for us. We traveled with our 3 teen/pre-teen daughters and wanted to be able to get a relaxing vacation while still having easy access to the shops/restaurants on 1/2d beaches. We were there for 5 nights.
The hotel is a side business for an Italian ex-pat family who have a massive (100 Hectare/250 acre) coconut plantation that takes up much of beaches 3 and 4 and are partially why these beaches are so calm. Their property goes to the coast at the bottom of beach 3 for a few hundred meters and then does the same on beach 4, but is completely connected on the land side, where there are paved roads to walk from one facility to the other. Staying at the 4th beach houses is zero-risk - at places further down beach 4, the tides can mess with your ability to get to/from town - so take note for your trip and timing. The family was lovely, always around, though this clearly is a place where they can host friends as noted by others in the reviews.
Portuguese is necessary here (as with most of Brazil), though if you speak Italian that can work as well with some of the folks. Many have mentioned Gabriela at the front desk who is beyond wonderful in her willingness to help and arrange things (and reviewed the tide tables with us when we were doing excursions!). She took care of us well during our stay, and is fluent in English and Spanish.
Our rooms were beautiful, with real showers - hot water and good water pressure - and the appliances (fridge, aircon, A/V) were main-brand and good quality. Selection of DVDs at front desk for rainy nights was nice. We splurged on the ocean-view and were glad of it. The girls had one of the ground floor rooms and it was more spacious than and as well appointed as ours. Mini-bar prices were NOT highway robbery, which was a pleasant thing to see, and they were great with giving us towels to take to the pool or beaches if we wanted.
The mosquitoes were thick when we were there, and there are no screens on the windows. Therefore you either close the glass or use the mosquito net. If you're not used to a mosquito net, it's something to get used to. Bring repellent, and I'd go a further step to get some bug killer and spray the room before bed.
Last, we had a few hiking headlamps with us, and they were really helpful in getting to/from town after dark. We were there in August, which is winter season in Brazil and therefore it was dark before 6pm. There is no real sidewalk on beach 3, though there are some spots with rocks and water so having a bit of light was great, regardless of where you stay
