The name says it all. Preguiça means laziness in Portuguese, and that is exactly what you should expect from this rural hotel. It was all thought for you to relax. Ok starting with breakfast: its from 9am to 9pm! It includes freshly squeezed orange juice and a diversity of local products you can only dream of if you-like us- live in a city all year round. Zé, the owner, and Mariana, the lovely lady who does a bit of everything there make sure you have your daily news even before you ask for it. In addition there is a generous salty water pool with no chemicals on it. A basketball field, bikes to ride and the most comfortable room you can think of. Several beautiful beaches are only 20mins away and local village is less than 5 minutes walking. Our bedroom was quite big, bed was comfy and the TV had CNN on it. We were not expecting it in the middle of nowhere. Wifi is super fast as well. If anything I could only point out the fact that our bedrooms had only a shower and no bath tube, but that is not an issue for us anyway. Its real value for money if you need a place to just r-e-l-a-x. Lastly, there is always something that I truly value when reviewing services- the expection. Those little details that were not expected to happen but when they do happen how does the service provider react? In this case, as life goes we had to leave a day earlier. We were expecting a tremendous reaction given that it was so short notice (same day!). Zé's reaction? No problem, we just want you to be happy with your stay :) We left with no nightrate charge whatsoever and sure we will be back whenever we can.
