Find a better hotel just up the beach

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 2, 2008

I spent 7 days in this hotel on a business trip from September 13-20, 2008. The hotel was mediocre at best. The bed was awfully uncomfortable. The room attendants often did not leave clean towels and I needed to request more. They charge R$5 per day to use the in-room safe--I have never paid to use a safe before. They charge R$40 (US$25) per day for internet service, and the wireless network often dropped the connection. The TV made an awful buzzing noise. When I asked to have it repaired, they simply told me to turn up the volume so the TV sound was louder than the buzz! The breakfast that is included with the room is awful. The eggs were undercooked and the selection was poor compared to other Brazil hotels. I would recommend the new Sheraton that is just down the beach a little ways. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

Unique Quality: The hotel had a decent pool. The location on the beach is nice. However, there is a new Sheraton hotel just down the beach that looked nicer. I have not stayed there.

Directions: On a nice beach
