Allow me to pass though each category. I think it is better. Accommodation: Good. Although there is some demand for apartments in front of the sea. Depends on the occasion such as Christmas or New Year it can be a nightmare as you may interest to rest while a loud music is played at swimming pool. Give preference for the... More

This is a wonderful retreat from the stresses of life. The resort has a great infrastructure including a lovely secluded beach (appears to be private to the hotel and the local houses) with great service and satisfying food. The spa is of excellent quality and the rooms and common areas are clean and of good quality. The area is very... More

This hotel is located right off the highway and is on the beach. However, the beach is not the best that you can get in the state of Santa Catarina. The pool area is nice and overlooks the ocean. This is an old hotel (I think it was built in 1972) and part of it is going thru a very... More

I was in this hotel for a weekend with some friends and this was the perfect place to have a relaxed break from work. This is a nice hotel right on top of the beach but if you walk a little or take a ride in a golf car you reach an amazing corner of the beach with the "pirate... More

Although well maintained the hotel is due for renovation. Located at an exclusive area has all major attractions of a resort inclusive a 9 hole challenging golf course, although lacking some basic care in some tees. Good inside restaurant but pool bar usually understaffed

I had been here about ten years ago, and came back this April. This hotel is more of a resort, with tennis courts, inside and outside pools, private beach and Spa. When we arrived, there was some kind of conference, so we were fortunately upgraded to block 3 (larger rooms than we had booked). Aside from the people from the... More

I have been there to celebrate my mother´s b-day and we had an excellent stay. The location is beautiful in front of the beach. The food is very good as well, every day day offer something different.

This gorgeous hotel&spa is still the best you can get in the South of Brazil. We haven't stayed there for many years, but it remains quite new. Our room 214 in the "old" building was recently renewed, is very ample, with all the stuff you need in a hotel room. The staff is very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The swimmable... More

I went there three times and each one was better than the last one. The food is great, the place is beautiful, with a lot of options for the kids to play. If I could, I would go every year. It's better to go on summer, or from November to February, when the weather is hot and you can enjoy... More
