“Good for Guests with limited mobility”
Reviewed February 2, 2008

This hotel has 3 blocks. I requested a room with good access and were luckily located in the front block with stunning sea views. The reception is on the top floor and has a ramp from the road. There is a lift to all 4 floors. From the ground floor there is good access to the pool area and bar/restaurant. The access is not so good for the other 2 blocks.
The apartments are delightful, spacious and clean with 2 balconies. There is no kettle in the kitchen although there is a microwave. The staff are very helpful and always smiling. The restaurant has a good menu and is very good value for money. There are plenty of other restaurants and bars within the vacinity. There is a fairly flat promenade at the front of the hotel which is about 1k from the centre of Ponta Negra and is accessable (although slighly bumpy) in a wheelchair this is reached by a very steep ramp from the front of the hotel. The beach is directly in front of the promenade and has about 15 steps. It is a lovely beach with loads of beach sellers who are very friendly and take no for an answer with a broad grin allthough there are many bargains to be had from sun cream to jewellery. The sea is quite rough and great fun but caution is necessary as there are no life guards.

We stayed at this hotel in April 07 and can't think of a bad thing to say. The view from our pool-side room balcony was awesome - overlooking the ocean and watching the surfers morning and early evening was fab (surfers were really good 'cos the current is very strong - too strong to swim in). The room was spacious and well equipped with microwave and fridge etc but no hob or kettle. There was a separate air-conditioned bedroom that could be closed off (great is you've got kids!) and a small dining area as well as loung area and TV in bedroom. The pool area was peaceful and well maintained with a good sized pool and childrens pool. Although the reception and restuarant staff speak a little English, be prepared to learn the lingo - mainly Portugese - as Brits are definitely in the minority! (this is good 'cos you really know you're in Brazil - not Spain!!) The restuarant is fine with a good selection at breakfast and an adequate choice for lunch and dinner (try the Cuban chicken with the fried banana - our 4 year old loved it!). The beach is clean and safe but the sea is poweful, though we generally felt no real need to leave the hotel pool area. Locally, there are plenty of very cheap restuarants and the Praia Shopping mall about half a mile away is fully air conditioned and has a good food court ranging from steak to sushi. We couldn't do the buggy safari trip as our daughter was too young but the Mangrove Mystery trip was great. Property development is massive in Ponta Negra, so if you want a hassle-free holiday go soon, before the time-share ghouls start appearing! All in all, we had a fantastic, relaxing and entertaining holiday in Ponta Negra and the hotel was brilliant.

We stayed here over New Year 2005 for 2 weeks and don't have a bad word to say about it. I always read reviews of places before I go and was surprised to see no one had posted anything for this hotel. The hotel is in a great location, right on the beach with a lovely little pool area overlooking the promenade to Ponta Negra. The breakfast was really good with everything you could want, fresh juice and fruit, sausages, eggs, etc. The staff were always very helpful and friendly and the room services was excellent. The rooms were clean and well equipped and the maids were again very frinedly and helpful.

I would recommend doing the beach buggy safari tour whichw as a good day out and try and get down to Pipa for the day and we went swinmming in Dolphin Bay where we experienced dolphins swimming really close to us in the wild.

In Ponta Negra there are many great restaurants which aren't expensive. When drinking you must try a Caipirinha, but be warned they are very strong. We had no problems eating food off the beach.

All in all a great holiday made better by the very personal and friendly hotel. I would definitely return.
