I'm sitting here at the hotel almost crying. The hotel is ok (typical Brazilian 5 stars, nothing special, most 70's buildings, but ok). The food is ok. Typical Brazilian style: buffet or coma por quilo. The internet comes and goes... but that's ok. But what really drives me to write this review is the beach. It is unbelievable how dirty... More

This hotel is very very old, and the facilities show it. The rooms are in terrible condition, specially for a hotel that is considered to be "5 stars". The showers don't really work, have mold and calcium build up, are rusted - over not very clean. The safe in the rooms don't have lock mechanism, the pool water is dirty... More

Spent 7 nights there and had a nice and quiet stay while in this hotel. All staff was attentive and polite. Rooms were clean and big with a nice balcony. Food and drinks were good but a bit overpriced. Location was good if you would lie to stay away from city center.

After an emergency landing with IBERIA they allocated us in this excellent hotel. They were able to receive 260 person at once and even feed us all at night.
