Terrible food n dinks (thanks God that they have coca-cola). Bedrooms will give you a back pain. The traditional local food "acaraje" doesnt come with "caruru", so is fake! To have an omelet you will wait 20min in line. the gym is pathetic so bring your equipment.

My wife and I just spent a week here. Before selecting a resort, we read extensive reviews both on Tripadvisor as well as other sites, and decided to stay here. We could not have been happier with our decision !! You've got to take the negative reviews you read online about any resort or hotel with a healthy dose of... More

Extremely poor experience for me and my family. Despite the great location - amazing Guarajuba beach, the hotel is in a terrible condition, with NO maintenance, no staff, and I felt misled by the 5* and the great experience I've had in 2008, 2009 and 2010. You can see the pictures. Broken AC in the room, lot of broken facilities... More

A very poor experience for my entire family. The staff was very unfriendly, I have never seen that before in a hotel, especially in a 5-star hotel. There was no comfort, such as pick up of luggage. Moreover, the hamock was missing, the safe not closing the air conditioning leaking, the cards for the room not working etc. and it... More

At time of booking we had ordered two rooms, one for the couple and one for our two children, at check in we were given 2 bedrooms with... More

First of all let me be honest and say that I am not a busy, big, noisy resort kind of guy. I went there on a family trip, with my heart open and had a poor time. The room was good, comfortable and with a nice view. The pool looked good but was always super crowed and I had to... More

The first thing noticed is the amazing bungalows all over the hotel, separated by eater or grass. A very big pool area for adults and kids. The beach area is just perfect. the ALL INC system makes it all very easy for everyone and the food is good and there is a lot variety to choose from. If I had... More

I was with my wife and kids for Xmas. No regrets! The hotel has a very fine infrastructure, the pool is great for kids, if you go surfing the beach is just downstairs by the pool. The only thing that is not 100% is the food, maybe for this amount of people (about 1,000 in Xmas week) they didn't have... More
