I am happy with your feedback, and you can have sure that we will always do our best.
Hope you have a nice week.
The hotel is located next to the Macae port, at front of the beach. All rooms (6 at level) have a sea view and this is very amusing. The beach front is very short, and there is not really good for some jogging... Not too many bars or restaurants to go for evening meal away. Yes, it is good for business stay, when the taxi pick you up from the hotel and then bring back. There is swimming pool at the roof - approx 12m long, so there is a place where you may relax. The beach is not very occupied (but next to port if you don´t mind), also there is small open air gym nearby (rather worn).
Regarding the room and hotel itself
1./- the bathroom is quite small, and the door just pass toilet bowl about 3cm away...
2./ Nice and big balcony makes leaving space bigger
3./ despite name of hotel is `suites` apart from sink and refrigerator - there is nothing making the room as `suit` - no kettle, cups or cutlery provided.
4./ breakfast - generally it is average and very Brazilian style. Unfortunately, once I went at approx 09.00 and not too much left to eat, but if you are in hurry, the breakfast is served from 05.00, which is rather early.
5./ lunch time is very busy, as the hotel restaurant serves meals for nearby offices workers and it is hard to find table at that time
6./ dinner - buffet serves 2-3 different meats, Brazilian style
There is approx 5 mins walk to nearest shops.
Some of receptionist speaks fluent English, but others only Portuguese...
I recently stayed in the hotel whilst over at a conference for work.
I stayed for 4 nights in total.
I thought that the experience was good, I have had better.
Positives: The view from the hotel was excellent of the beach
The rooms were of a good size with a fridge provided also
The staff were helpful and assisted me with recommendations for food, ordering taxis & storage of my luggage.
The hotel was clean and tidy.
Negaitives: The wifi was non-existent which made communication with my work
The gym is tiny, not worth having.
Overall I thought that my experience was good.
Stay 2 night for professional reasons.
Hotel gives an excellent image.
Amazing view (all rooms sea view)
Only 5 rooms per floor (reduce noise level)
Fair restaurant and good breakfast
Large room large bed
Very clean room
Very silent AC system
Bad sound isolation (I do advise higher floors)
Far away from center
Internet just acceptable
I would come back with pleasure.
Hotel ok. Nothing special but not bad.
Rooms quite big with queen size bed. Food average. Weak WiFi signal an terrible tv signal. Nothing fancy but as for Macae it is ok to sleep there.
View on the port. Good pool on the roof
Firstly,indeed to state that I stayed here last week to visit the Brazil Offshore exhibition and, as a result, accommodation in Macae was at a premium. However, charging over £400 ($600) per night for a hotel similar in many ways to a Travelodge was stretching things somewhat.
Anyway, the good points first. The hotel is on the water's edge and much of the view from the bedrooms (all of which I believe face the sea) is pleasant if you are able to block out the dock on the right hand side. The hotel was clean throughout, the room was reasonably furnished and certainly comfortable, and free wifi was available in the room.
Now the drawbacks. Breakfast was shocking and the food in general was very poor. The signs in the lifts state there is a bar and fitness centre on the roof - there is a very small and very cold pool there, a tiny room with 3 fitness machines and a sauna that looked like it hadn't worked for a while. Certainly no sign of a bar. All of this is a shame as the view from the roof is excellent, and clearly a missed opportunity by the hotel for a pleasant area tailor made for a relaxing drink and meal. Service was average at best, and I find it remarkable that a hotel in this day and age does not have an iron; not in the rooms and not available from reception. Needless to say I wore creased clothes throughout my stay. The location is poor in terms of being close to anything of interest in terms of restaurants, bars, etc - a big issue given the quality of the cuisine. This lead to taking a 10 - 15 minute taxi each night to the Cabaleiros district, also on the beach, where most of the restaurants and bars are situated. Centro (unsurprisingly the centre of the town) is within walking distance from the hotel but I would not recommend walking there, certainly at night. Whilst the bed was quite comfortable, the room was not well sound-proofed and I found myself waking up during the night with the sound of the sea (romantic for some maybe, but as this is a business hotel in a town built on the oil and gas industry, I would have preferred a good night's sleep).
So, would I go back? No. £1,600 for 4 nights in a hotel of mediocre standard does not strike me as presenting value for money.
