The Ferraretto was recommended to me by a Brazilian colleague; I've spent most of the last three months out in the countryside of Minas Geiras (sp?) so the beach sounded good.
Late September is just the end of winter in Brazil, the weather forcast for either Ouro Fino or Guaruga was iffy, but why not?
Check-in was painless; I had a confirmed reservation, for a superior room. The room was OK, but smelled somewhat sour. I turned on the AC for a while, and tried keeping the window wide open, neither really ever eliminated the odor. After a few minutes in the room, no problem, but each time I returned I noticed the smell.
The bed was quite comfortable and had a great assortment of pillows and a light cotton blanket, which was all I needed, window open or AC on.
The room lacked a comfortable chair so I had to make a good nest-of-pillows to read on the bed.
I ate dinner all three nights in the hotel. 1st night, I was quite well satisfied. 2nd night, there was a problem with the bill, they overcharged me and it took some time to work out the details; and the 3rd night (even though there were no other guests in the restaurant) nothing seemed to work well. No wine, then oh yes, we have one bottle, then none; I gave up on the wine. Food was OK, but not spectacular. Sea food 1st two nights was meh; 3rd night I had a Piciana steak (Sirloin) and it was good.
All in all, if I were to return to Guaruja, I think I'd take my chances on a different hotel. Ferraretto sure could have been better.
