Amazing place. Outside it looks like a regular building but inside it is a palace under restoration (mostly ready) which has many functions at the same time. Old vinyl music player with the best traditional Portuguese music or top classics from the 80s, an amazing view from the terrace and a glass of champagne in hand - just a perfect evening. The owner who is a tour guide at the same time tells interesting stories about the history of the palace and gives tips to the best local places to visit. It was a great experience!

After several years visiting Boa Vista we decided to try the new hotel next door to our usual one. Whilst we had been happy with it the chance to go a new one was definitely worth it. The room was super and we had a lovely position. We thought the food was better overall and the drinks better quality. We liked the range of bars spread around the hotel so you could choose noise or quiet- coffee or alcohol! The staff were lovely as usual. The only criticism was that the pool was cooler than we expected so wasn’t as comfortable to use. We will definitely be returning for our injection of winter sun.

This palace harbours a nice collection of items, with paintings, porcelain, Japanese drawings, and most of all luxurious furniture. Entry is free, but you may have to wait a while for your turn. Picture taking was only allowed in the beginning.

Actually my main reason for visiting was that I heard about interesting birds in this area. Across the road from the palace I saw a nice red-chested black bird, and a kind of woodpecker with a curved bill. A bit to the west I noticed an ibis, and to the east I noticed several yellow-headed caracaras, and a colourful tanager. The highlight was a so-called campo-flicker (pica-pau do campo), a woodpecker with a yellow-black head, just 50 meters east of the palace.

Spent fabulous fortnight in this hotel. Never felt crowded three pools, one very long so good for swimming. Lovely lovely beach. Rooms spacious. Coffee shop staff brilliant and coffee great. Main restaurants fabulous with so much choice and variety. Staff and cleanliness first class. So why 4 star and but...? The themed restaurants. How can you have such fabulous cuisine in main restaurants and such disappointing food in the themed restaurants??? Please sort this out as the hotel is perfection in every other way.

Palace is fairly small. Built ~50 years ago with lovely wood parquet floors (so closed when raining to avoid damaging floors...).

Worth visiting if a fan of Brazilian art. Otherwise, see the views from the cafe and skip the tour.

The guided tour is really short (at most 20 minutes) but it's interesting. Inside the palace you can find artwork from very important artists like Tarsila do Amaral.

Beautiful place, extremelly well-kept, protected. Has an amazing view from up there, too. Good parking space, restrooms, accessibility, etc. And the guided tour itself was very good and informative. No pictures allowed, though. Just outside.

Was impressed by the building quality. Nice layout of the Palace. The wooden floors were all made to fit. We didn't have any view due to low hanging clouds but they told us its great. The temporary exhibition is extremely interesting. We had a excellent guide with a fast knowhow. The tour is done in groups of app 20 persons and unfortunately you are pulled through at a high pace. Even so its really worth the drive up.
