Parents or a legal guardian traveling with children under 18 years must present the child's birth certificate and an identity card with photo (passport, for example) at the check-in. For international travels from Brazil, if just one of the parents is traveling with the child, she/he must present – in addition to the child's certificate of birth and identity card with photo – a letter authorizing the trip signed by the other parent with a notarial certification of signature. In case the parents or the legal guardian, as applicable, cannot or are unwilling to give this authorization, a judicial authorization is required. People who intend to travel to Brazil with children must consult with the Brazilian consulate before traveling for more information.

Very Good 8.4 From 244 reviews

Fair 4.0
Let me start with the good. Check in was fast. The lobby of the hotel is really pretty and builds expectations for the room which it could not live up to. The room was large but the carpet in the room had seen better days as well as the beat up 1970’s furniture. The bedding was nice and the sheets and pillows were very clean. The bathroom is not visually appealing and the corner shower sprays water all over the floor. The toilet has a very strong flush that threw water on the floor. Also you hear the constant sound of other toilets above and next to your room flushing. The 2 worst things were the overnight staff and the nonexistent WiFi. If you need to be connected to the internet for business or entertainment (and who doesn’t) avoid this place at all costs! When it worked it’s best I could read 2 emails between the WiFi dropping out. At its worst there was no signal at all for many long stretches. I called to complain but nothing changed. The 2nd big problem I had was with night staff trying to order room service. There are no restaurants in walking distance at night so I thought I would order room service. The hotel had no one in room service or the front desk who spoke English. The menu (which I had to go to the front desk to get) was in Portuguese and English so you would think they could take an order in English. Wrong! 5 phone calls 3 visits to my room from 3 different people who could not take an order in English and 2 Hours later went to bed hungry.
