    Foi ok

    Café da manhã ok, atendimento bom, muito bem localizada, tranquilo, porém a limpeza deixou a desejar. O banheiro estava com poeira, metais aparentavam não muito limpos. Falta manutenção no quarto e em áreas comuns. O álcool era disponibilizado em frascos pequenos em locais específicos, mas poderiam ter em mais lugares. Cobram para emprestar prato e talher para usar no quarto. Achei o serviço do bar fraco. Fiquei no chalé e pelo preço que foi, não valeu o custo benefício

    Experiência incrível! Pousada linda, aconchegante, com piscina aquedida 24h, sauna, piscina descoberta, sinuca, academia, quadra de tênis e mini golf (pousada empresta os equipamentos sem custo adicional). Café da manhã top! Ficamos em um chalé de frente pra piscina, maravilhoso! Amei absolutamente tudo!

    Pousada bem localizada e bem cuidada. Os funcionários são muito atenciosos e lhe atendem em todos os detalhes. Nosso pet ficou muito a vontade na pousada (com liberdade). O cardápio do restaurante não tem muitas variadades, porém o preço é bastante convidativo e a comida é boa. Recomendo e voltaria novamente.

    Pousada linda e de uma energia única! Pessoalmente é muito mais bonita que nas fotos do site. A piscina térmica a noite é incrível, junto ao som de uma playlist maravilhosa. Escolha um fim de semana de sol e se encante com o colorido que existe por lá. Vale a pena conhecer!!!!

    Deve melhorar

    Em geral muito bom. A pousada precisa de melhor manutenção . Começando ter desgastantes nos ambientes..A gerência precisa ser efetiva quando recebe uma observação e não dá o feed Back..
