The beautiful pools and the variety of restaurants and Bars within the hotel.
The location is kind of dangerous across the street from the “favela”.

I felt safe and secure while staying here. The views of the mountain from the pool was amazing.
It was a little far away from the action. The hotel charges wasn’t properly explained to me upon checkout. Too many hidden charges and a bit shady? I don’t know yet. I’ll do a deep dive and review the bill later.

The staff were amazing and nice.
There was a nosiy club that stayed until 11 am the next day. I love and support people who party but the hotel should provide sound proof windows.

Staff was friendly... to a point. Concierge works very well, organized and courteous. Facilities were well used in spite of Covid restrictions. Spa is great, but pricey, and they also offer a great gym; remarkable even. Amazing view and sea sounds in the room.
Room services are imprecise and slow. More than once, we’ve placed a certain order and it arrived on a different quantity. Dialing “0” was useless quite a few times, either kept me waiting for several minutes, or never even picked up the call. Location is interesting for a possibility of beach restrictions, but inconvenient for transportation: never less then 18USD to and fro. The property is actually offering DAY USE, which is understandable considering Covid, but they were severely understaffed; pool area looked like the end of a teenagers pool party. I’ve only managed to take 1 day at the pool, of the 6 I’ve spent in the hotel. Maintenance is urgently needed: wardrobe doors are malfunctioning, as is the shower tap and AC is noisy. Walls had marks on them, and there was a leak on the bathroom that made water from the shower to be directed onto the carpet. Management REALLY needs to pay attention to filters and exhaustion cleanliness: please see pictures below.

The hotel was great, with excellent staff, great facilities, good internet connection.
We came for new year's eve and I wasn't notified of any special event that required reservation at all. When we found out there was a party there was no room available for us anymore. We still had a good time and enjoyed ourselves near the pool area, but it would've been better to have been notified of the options beforehand.

Basically, Everything is perfect!!
1.)Breakfast place is changed from 1 year ago’s pool side restaurant. Now, the place is like a ceremony place... I wish the previously out side place will be back.... 2.)If the air conditioner in the room has a “DRY” function, it is much better. Because humidity is so high due to sea side.

Very Poor
Only good thing about this place is location
Maybe this hotel was once a 5 star hotel, but it surely is not anymore - not even in its wildest dreams. To start off, the check in experience had us standing in line for approximately 40 minutes because service is extremely inefficient and they use Covid as an excuse: “less people, less desks working due to distancing”. Not to mention one (out of the working two) desks was occupied for 20 minutes by a couple who was trying to get a free upgrade on the phone with a third party (while the paying customers waited in line for this long). The room was below average - nothing a good 3 star in Europe couldn’t offer. The bath tub had stains and the air conditioning keeps getting turned on and off during the night, which not only disturbs your sleep due to fluctuating temperature, but also due to the noise. Towels are rough and worn out like they have been used for far too long - not fluffy like a proper 5 star hotel should offer. The drinks in the pool were the worst: not sure how someone can mess up something as basic as a Gin and Tonic, but they managed to do it. No service at the beach (and no warning on the website or check in about it) due to again “reduced staff”. But I have to say the most unacceptable thing about the hotel was the breakfast, which is advertised here on Booking as “excellent”. I think the best way to describe it is “a prison canteen”. They took an old dark carpeted convention center room and have set up this buffet. No variety whatsoever, only the cheapest Brazilian cheeses (Minas, prato, muçarela). The eggs, which are my favorite thing for breakfast, were absolutely disgusting. Only option was scrambled in this huge pan. I lifted the lid to find what can only be described as old staled eggs sitting there since 6am floating in this yellow watery liquid that looked like sewer water. I love eggs, and I could not eat that. That was unacceptable even for a cheap B&B. I have to say, I travel a lot and I have never seen eggs this disgusting.
