Very charming. Friendly people. Cousy. Fantastic Staff highlighting Marcia, Alessandra, Gabriel, Paola (sorry if I miss someone). Three points to improve - the internet MUST be MUUUUCH better as the tv channels options are a joke so you should be able to watch things on internet on your room. Brazilian country music should be banned on the bar and restaurant....

We spent the last 8 days here after a 10 week trip to Central and South America . What a fabulous place to relax in! The hotel is situated right on a large beautiful white sand beach. It's touted as the surfing capitol of Brazil and parts of the beach have some serious surf. We watched a junior surf contest...

A small hotel with a beautiful terrace over looking a white sand beach. The rooms are fine as well as the bathrooms. The included breakfast was pretty good but the view of the ocean made it better. It was a good value for the money.

This is a tranquil contrast to hectic Rio. We love this indulgent, relaxing and very cool hotel resort and restaurant set beachside with glorious surf and sand views of the very popular Itauna beach, sweeping two kilometers to Saquarema just 100 kms north of Rio de Janeiro. This is the volleyball and surf capital of Brazil with hang gliding and...

I grew up going to Saquarema and returned after 30 years. Itauna beach is the best place to be. Maasai is small, beautifully located in this pristine beach and the service was above my expectations in professionalism, friendliness and attention to detail. I am in the wine business and was amazed that Dalia had perfect training in wine service (In...

My wife and I stayed at the Maasi in May, 2014. The personnel from desk, to dining room to groundskeeping were all friendly and professional. The room was great and the public areas had lots of art on display and were immaculately maintained. We will definitely return on our next visit to Saquarema!

After a week in Rio we decided to seek somewhere more relaxed and found this hotel. An email to them confirmed they could accommodate us and arranged a local taxi to collect us. The journey was just under 2 hours from Rio city centre and a great drive and cost less that our original airport transfer! It had a nice...

This is a very nice place with a family-friendly, upmarket feel, right on Itauna beach with its own bar, restaurant and pool. The rooms were clean and tidy, bed v comfortable, and there were absolutely charming staff who booked bus tickets for us, and patiently let us talk in our terrible Portuguese (even though their English was excellent)hnd made us...

“We chose a room overlooking the ocean. It was smallish but had a fabulous view. Master suites are bigger but overlook pool and carpark.”
