I didn’t like the smell in the hallways of the hotel. The hotel was pretty outdated. The pool was really small. And the gym didn’t look anything like the photos. The gym was extremely dirty with towels left everywhere, empty water bottles and rusty equipment.

I loved this hotel! It’s in a great place on the beach. Down the coast a bit, there is a market and some bars that are great fun but get really loud at night. Near the hotel is was relaxed, clean but still within walking distance to the entertainment. We stayed on the 16th floor in the panoramic suite, and the view was out of this world! It was a fantastic way to spend our weekend! The staff were very kind and friendly, the rooftop bar was very nice and clean, and the food was very very good! The breakfast in the morning was nice, there were a lot of options and the staff were super great and helpful. My girlfriend and I speak Portuguese, but if you’re at all worried, there was a very diverse group of people at the hotel and the staff were helpful in English and or Portuguese! I really have nothing negative to say... I had a great time, we will return soon!
