6/10 Good

Fiquei 2 sias pedindo sabão líquido. Reclamei 3 vezes até que fossem repor. No quarto haviam 2 telefones. Nenhum funcionava. Eu usava o telefone do banheiro para me comunicar, mas por causa do eco era bem difícil que me entendessem do outro lado. A camareira me disse que não aguentava mais trabalhar no hotel, pois estavam em duas funcionárias apenas trabalhando no domingo. O que salvou foi o restaurante, cuja comida é excelente. A área também não é das melhores. Não indico.

We’ve been travelling round Brazil. This is by far the best hotel we’ve stayed in. Service is excellent. Except there was very little service by the pool.
