“Charming and wheelchair accessible ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

Charming little hotel that offers fully wheelchair accessible accommodations. Staff speaks at least serviceable English. Rooms are a bit on the small side but ok. Would have loved to stay a little longer.

It is a nice, cosy, little hotel in São Paulo state northern coast. Although it is not by the sea, it is a walking distance and there is a hotel shuttle to the sea. There is a nice restaurant in the hotel but there are also so many good restaurants in the beaches nearby. The hotel is comfortable, clean and friendly. It is good for families, friends, young and elderly, as well as for children.

Good utilities and very friendly services at razonable prices. I stayed there with my family - 02 couples and a 07 years child - for 03 days. We used 02 rooms at the ground floor. The hotel is 1 km distant of the small and very, very beatiful Paúba beach, fare 200 km from São Paulo city in the northeastern cost of the state - around 3 hours by car in this season. We loved it and are planning return to this place next year.

This hotel is in a quiet location amid magnificent scenery within a 10 minute walk of the local beach and a more vigorous 20 minute walk through the forest to the town, through - spectacular views of both the town and surrounding beaches. Breakfast and other meals were great, staff were helpful and spoke English and the hotel is beautifully landscaped around a good-sized pool. There's free wireless, a hot tup and gym, heaps of free DVDs to borrow and an area adjacent area containing heaps of activities for children, including a child-size house. On our last day I had the best massage of my life from Sol. Thoroughly recommended

I stayed with my wife and 2 y.o. daughter in the Ciribaí Praia Hotel in the last week of July and found it a very good place to stay, especially for those who bring their kids together. The price was not in the low range, however one gets for that a very nice and a recently refreshed room (very good for Sao Paulo beaches standard) with A/C, TV & DVD (usefull for the rainy days not so uncommon in the area). Besides, for those staying more than 3 days, the hotel offers a free spa session that is very relaxing. The hotel has a gym and a nice swimming pool (pity the water is quite cold in July) and an excellent restaurant that offers top quality breakfast and also very good options for lunch/dinner (in our case we also got a promotion where the kid gets a free kid-menu dish if the parents are paying a dish for 2). Besides that, the hotel is close to the beach in a calm area (Pauba - beach is calm, sea not always - good for surfers), but still very close to Maresias, where there is plenty of options to eat/drink/shop/dance. During weekends and peak season the hotel offers free transfer to the beach in a van (spares a 7 minutes walk) and has all beach equipment available free to the guests. I would definitely recommend for those going to the are, especially when bringing kids.

Ciribaí Praia Hotel, located close to Paúba beach (only 2km from bustling Maresias), delivers what it promises: a comfortable and relaxing stay for families with kids in the northeastern shore of São Paulo state.

Its facilities include a swimming pool (for both adults and children), a game room, fitness center and a wooden playhouse. During the high season, recreational activities are also provided by the hotel staff.

Standard rooms are relatively small, though being equipped with minibar, air-conditioner, ceiling fan, safe deposit box and TV (with only 2 cable TV channels - HBO and Cartoon Network). Unfortunately, in older rooms the individual air-conditioning units are very noisy, which make it impossible to sleep with them on even in the hottest of the nights.

Complimentary wireless internet is available throughout the entire hotel.

The hotel restaurant is an option for those who do not desire to leave the premises for a meal. It offers "a la carte" dishes for lunch and an "all you can eat" buffet at night. Options are limited, food quality is reasonable.

Paúba beach is within walking distance from the hotel (around a 10min walk), and a complimentary shuttle service is offered by Ciribaí during the weekends and high season. The beach itself has calm waters and white sand, making it a perfect place for families.

Finally, do not forget to take insect repellents with you if you do not want to bring home some blackfly bites with the nice holiday/vacation memories of your stay in this place.
