Stayed over New years, 2012 and was sad to leave. I felt it's a nice place to stay for single travelers. They have a caipirinha hour and the communal large table for breakfast is inviting to meet each other.
The owners are always around to help, emails answers on time, staff is incredibly helpful. One feels welcome. Even in hectic New Years time.
Locations is great, feels safe and close to the beach (walk) and party area Verlmelho (taxi).
Clean rooms, good breakfast.
