“Beachfront in Bombinhas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

Location cannot be beat - right at the beginning of Bombinhas Beach. All rooms completely renovated in July 2012, so the interiors are in really good shape. Most rooms are located along a long corredor that leads from the street out to the beach. There is a patio entry for each room on one side and a door-entry on the other. Our accommodations had one bedroom with AC and flat-screen TV, a pretty nice bathroom which was roomy except for the space in front of toilet, and a living room with faux-leather sofa bed, flat-screen TV, and a mini-kitchen. The patio has a small, round table with two chairs. We had a Sunday afternoon lunch there and it was a nice spot for it.

There are a couple privacy issues. The craftsmanship on the interior doors of our apartment was not done right, so neither the bedroom door nor the bathroom door shut properly. They were too big for the door jamb. Oops. Also, there was an awful lot of foot traffic right outside both the patio and the front door, and people can see right into your rooms.

No cable TV, and the signal was very poor. Don't come here if you want to watch TV. Wireless internet was reliable, but slow. Don't come here to surf the internet. There is a bar/restaurant right on the beach that is great. We spent a couple hours of our Saturday afternoon there. Nice spot.

Breakfast is great. It is served in a second-floor room with large windows with street views. It is a very pleasant space. Staff are very helpful. We would return here.

Prezado Sipled,

Somos realmente muito gratos por todos os seus comentários ! Como você pôde perceber,os apartamentos foram reformados pouco antes de sua vinda, e esse problema da porta de banheiros e quartos só foi possível resolver agora em época de baixa estação. Quanto a intensa movimentação no corredor que da acesso a praia, acaba ocasionando o barulho e um pouco de falta de privacidade aos hóspedes que estão nos apartamentos do térreo, mas esse problema vamos em breve amenizar instalando um isolamento acústico nas janelas e portas dos quartos e quando temos a oportunidade de conversar e sugerir os apartamentos aos hóspedes, temos o cuidado de direcionar casais sem filhos na parte de cima - primeiro andar, ou nos outros blocos, deixando assim esses do térreo para casais com filhos pequenos que o preferem pela proximidade da areia. Quanto ao sinal da tv a cabo, trocamos o plano para melhoria de sinal e atendimento, assim como o da WIFI.

Nos mantemos a disposição

Grata

Lis

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

This is really a nice place to stay! The location just in front of the beach is wonderful, It was really relaxing to sleep hearing the waves from the sea!
The breakfast is nice too, with homemade breads and pies. The staff is also very friendly and always willing to help.
The apartment have a separate room with a double bed. The living room/kitchen has a sofa which turns into two single beds, a dining table, a sink, a refrigerator, microwave and cable tv.
There's also a barbacue in the balcony.
Tks for the nice stay!

Room Tip: Closer to the sea.
