          • Couple
            8.8

            The room was big, confortable and very clean. Kitchen well equipated. Very quiet place (at least in June) and close to the beach.

            Our room was really close to the cleaning storage and in the morning the cleaning ladies were really loud.

            Excellent apartment. Great value. I would stay there many more times. Comfortable, spacious and bright.Excellent staff and nice area.

            The only thing I didn't like that much was the shower which is a bit complicated to control its heat.What's more, the cleaning should be better done. There was some hair on the floor when we got in the apt on the first day. This should be improved.

            the space of the apartment / room

            It was very humid. the fact of everyone could get to the hotel room from the street. it was very noisy since our room face the road.the bathroom had a problem with the pipes between the bathtub and the toilet, that very unpleasant.

          • Couple
            7.0

            I liked the staff, they were very helpful, the room was a nice size and the bed was awesome, the beach being close to the hotel is another plus and it is quite beautiful. In general it was a fantastic stay at this hotel, will be going back simply because of the service at the bar by the Brasilian waiters.

            The food being was good but a shame that is buffet style.

          • Family with children
            7.4

            The apartment was quite wide enough to accomodate 3 persons.

            My navigator and Google map did not spot hotel address so I had to drive around so long. I think the address should be more specified.
