I've stayed in Mecure hotels all over the world and know what I'm going to get. I have also stayed in plenty of hotels in Brazil and know what to expect too. This hotel was nothing special, had staff who don't really care and charges a little too much for everything.
My room is a tired studio apartment, with a kitchenette (two electric rings & a microwave) small selection of cooking equipment - but no obvious local place to buy food and no hotel service to do it either. The room is relatively spacious, with a noisy air conditioner and a window that lets in the traffic noise.
The rooftop pool is small but good and I've njoyed swimming there - there's a small gym up there too, plus a sauna, but I've not used either. The bar and restaurant are run by people who aren't very interested in helping - very un-Brazilian - and most things I asked of the staff were a little too much trouble and I had to try a few times.
The area is only of interest if you are visiting local businesses - you will need a local friend to find the local colour. There's a hotel shuttle to nearby attractions like the Morumbi mall, but it only runs until 8pm so won't bring you back from dinner and it doesn't run on weekends and holidays (when you most need it in this isolated outpost).
Overall - don't bother. Go some place else.
