Não voltaria
Na descrição do quarto dizia que o quarto tinha cama de casal mas na verdade eram duas de solteiro juntas, o que foi desconfortável. O quarto não tinha janela e no primeiro dia o chuveiro estava quebrado. O que salvou foi o café da manhã, mas pelo preço da diária esperava um serviço bem melhor.

6/10 Good

Good Location, Not so good quality
The hotel is very close to the main beach area which is nice, almost everything is walking distance, drogo do mar, mercado central, and the beach. However the hotel itself was nothing special it looks beautiful on the inside, and the breakfast and rooftop pool were great, but the room itself is lacking. We had ant infestations twice. They don't seem to really clean the floors either. Otherwise it wasn't bad.. but way too expensive for what you get.

Hotel location is not recommended for a family tri
The only good thing about this hotel is the breakfast. The hotel is close to the beach, but you will not be able to jump into the water around it. In addition, the hotel is surrounded by bars of "questionable" clientele when night falls. I do not recommend it for a family trip. You can get a better pace near the Beira Mar for about the same rate.

Boa opção
Foi boa no geral, limpeza todos os dias muito boa, cafe da manha farto, os funcionários sao educado. Unica coisa que o banheiro era minúsculo sem saida de ar tornando o quarto abafado quando usado. Uma boa localização
