    I found the hotel mainly catered for families with children. I could hear all conversations going on in the restaurant. Children screaming all afternoon in the pool (especially the wet bar pool)! Overall the building need an update!

    Schöne Lage aber runtergewirtschaftet

    In die Jahre gekommen, Fitness Studio ist fast alles defekt. Unser erstes Zimmer hatte Schimmel. Umzug hat nicht funktioniert. Personal zum Teil unfreundlich. Wifi schwach. Schöne Lage aber runter gewirtschaftet. Tiefgarage ein einziger Konstruktionsfehler.

    Razoável, mas não me hospedaria novamente

    Valeu à pena principalmente por ter usado uma diária grátis do hoté Hotel grande, mas com aspecto de "velho", necessitando de modernização. Quarto bem aquém do que aparenta nas fotos. Camas confortáveis, limpeza ok, bom café da manhã.

    Ficamos no hotel apenas três noites, em viagem rapida a passeio. O hotel é muito bonito e agradável, está muito bem localizado e de facil acesso, os funcionarios são muito prestativos e educados, o restaurante é muito bom e o café da manhã é excelente. Todavia, o apartamento o qual ficamos (618) ficava com cheiro de mofo ao ligar o ar condicionado (ar central), tinhamos que deixa-lo o tempo todo aberto, mesmo assim relevamos esse problema e mantinhamos o apartamento aberto. Mas quando fomos usar o banheiro o vaso encontrava-se entupido, fizemos reclamações todos os dias de nossa estadia, que foram atendidas pelos funcionários, mas o problema não foi resolvido. Constatamos esses problemas em conversas com outros hospedes, então concluímos que os problemas são estruturais e precisa ser resolvido pela administração do hotel. Assim, deixo uma dica aos próximos hospedes, ao chegarem no apartaento liguem o ar e teste o funcionamento do banheiro e recusem os quartos que apresentarem esses problemas. Caso contrário terão que conviver com eles até o fim da estadia...

    Equipe perfeita!!!

    Estadia maravilhosa! A localização do hotel é ótima, a estrutura, o restaurante, a limpeza, mas o melhor de tudo é o atendimento! Os colaboradores do hotel são incríveis, simpáticos e atenciosos, desde a recepção, limpeza, bar da piscina (principalmente o Matias, pai da Gabi), restaurante, lojinha, recreação…enfim, ficamos muito satisfeitos! E tive muitas dúvidas na escolha de um hotel bom para crianças, e acertei em cheio! Única coisa foi que o telefone do quarto não funcionava, mas como estavamos do lado da recepção isso não foi um problema…recomendo muito!

    Boa estadia, o hotel é bom, porém precisa ser mais acompanhada sua manutenção. Ficamos 2 noites e o ar-condicionado não funcionou a contento, o quarto ficou muitooo quente e pingava o tempo todo no meio do quarto e apesar de termos reclamados não conseguiram ajeitar. De igual forma o quarto tinha cheiro de mofo. Para a proposta do hotel não deveria acontecer.

    Nossa experiência no hotel foi PERFEITA. a localização do hotel é incrível, pé na areia. não fica tão afastado e nem tão embaixo do morro do careca (local que fica bem cheio de pessoas, tumulto e barracas). A limpeza, atendimento, o quarto, tudo é incrível. Nossa estadia tinha apenas café da manhã incluído e era gostoso (muita fruta regional deliciosas). Dica vale a pena jantar pelas redondezas do hotel do que fechar all inclusive. É barato para jantar e dá para variar os restaurantes.
