I had stayed in this hotel 5 years before, when it was still called "Eco Resort de Angra" and was very impressed with the accomodations, food and service. So I returned there for Christmas and New Years. To our disappointment, everything had changed - not for the best. The rooms, once so clean and modern, needed urgent repairs - the lamp did not work, there was mold and rust everywhere. There were problems with the telephone line, which got constantly disconnected - the room was full of mosquitoes and the front desk couldn't provide us with mosquito repellents, which is usually offered in Brazilian hotels at no cost. The food, which was abundant and varied before, was now disgusting. We were a party of 15 people, and no one was pleased. The beach is incredible, and so is the swimming pool. But if it rains, it's hard for you to find something else to do, because the only covered space with games is far away, and there aren't so many choices. So, if you are lucky enough to have good weather and spend your days on the beach, you'll love it (but not the bad food and the cheap wine included in the fee). If not, find somewhere else to go. This hotel has seen better days. btw: we left on the third day and went to a nicer place in Mangaratiba.
