“Nice place to be”

Very nice place, rooms very clean an spacy, balcony, wonderful breakfast and park with swimming pool near the 'waterfalls'. Staff friendly and helpful. The small city is also safe and you can walk around without problems.

Canto das Aguas is a very (safe) short walk from the town centre, is quiet in its own delightful gardens, and has a good pool. The hotel is a charming mix of buildings, on different levels. Everywhere are some great pictures, artworks and design features. Breakfast was a very high standard; other meals were rather over-elaborate - eat out in the village for more atmosphere. Do eat at the Cozinha Aberta - charming service and delicious cooking in a small courtyard restaurant. No obvious host at the hotel, which was a pity.

Room Tip: Check about different views and levels

The place is very nice, decorated with taste, close to "luxurious" (except for beds and linen, cheap, not so good for the back), but the overall looks great. located next to a river.
Shortfall: it's also located next to city center, just behind the main road accessing Lencois. As a result, you get noise, is it from the village nearby, or from the traffic, which can be really noisy down here.
Besides, I saw other reviews complaining about the service and I agree with them - considering the price charged, you would expect a little bit more concern from the staff - they are friendly, but they don't care much, in a very tropical fashion. However, this does not really impact the quality of the stay (except when you leave at 08:30 in the morning, put the sign "Clean my room", and come back at 3pm and your room hasn't been done...) - On the other hand, I feel Management itself is certainly good, and I can anticipate it's not that easy to find qualified staff in such a remote area....
Food is excellent: breakfast is plentyfull, with lots of fresh fruits, cakes, fruit juices, etc... I was happily suprised by this large morning buffet.
The restaurant, in the evening, also provides excellent food - but again with a relatively poor service -.
It would not take much to improve this I believe.
For TV lovers, they proudly provide SKY with a lot of channels,
For more quiet areas, Portal Lancois and Hotel de Lancois probably offer more quiet areas - but service probably suffers the same shortfalls-
The exact location provided in Good map is wrong, here is the correct one:

Room Tip: The suite 3xx are really nice

I hav stayed 3 nights in this hotel - the hotel is very nice, not very luxurious as you couod expečt however nice facilities, setting by the river and close to center. We were however shocked by the extremely poor level fof service. The staff could not be less botered by our presence. They did not provide any information about excursions, when asked about the games room from the room brochure they said there was none although we later discovered there was nic room with table tennis, billiard and cards. Lunch t restaurant was shockingly bad as well. We did not feel welcome at all. What a pity! Woud be a nice plac otherwise. Please do something with your staff!

Unexpected to find such a stylish hotel in Lencois!

Beautiful lobby and public area, luxurious breakfast with charming views over the river and town. Rooms where clean, very basic but you have all you need and much more then expected. Service was great, hotel manager offered we have a 5:00am checkin with no additional charges as we where arriving with the night bus.. impeccable.

Location is great just out of the village and close to the bus station.

We had the opportunity to dine in the restaurant once and regretted not having done so earlier as the food was marvelous and great quality, 100 times better then the dozen backpacker style restaurants in town.

Overall we truly believe this is the best if not only option in Lencois :)

Very nice hotel, close to the centre, about 2 min walk, with the river right at our window. Lencois is an amazing place to visit. Hotel prices as usual not in a budget but still nice to sit outside at the restaurant and enjoy the view listening to the sound of the river. Friendly staff helped us getting in places by car and served us with the best caipiroska we had ever had! We loved every roska we tried and we end up drinking all different fruit flavours, delicious!!!! Recommend it!!!
