Very Good 8.0
Beautiful and good location
We moved to Solar from one of the Recanto properties as Solar had availability so we can compare the two. The Premium Recanto had a great pool area and excellent breakfast. Solar breakfast was ok. Both hotels downstairs smelled very moldy and Solar seemed to make us feel bad. We moved to the 2nd floor at Solar the final night and that was better. I prefer the Recanto if there is availability. Solar is a beautiful hotel also.

Hotel muito lindo!
Adoramos o hotel! Limpo, aconchegante, próximo a ótimos restaurantes. Além de ter estacionamento incluso no preco. O café da manha é uma delicia. O servico é ótimo. Os funcionários sao super prestativos (pricipalmente o Sr. Mauro que cuida do café da manha). Nota 10 em todos os quesitos! Voltaremos com certeza!

Good 6.0
Fiquei bem decepcionado com a estadia nesse hotel. Pelo preço da diária esperava muito mais. É apenas um hotel bonito e bem localizado. Os serviços deixaram a desejar. Fomos fazer um passeio antes do horário do café da manhã e não nos ofereceram nada pra levar. As toalhas de banho não poderiam nem ser usadas como pano de chão de tão desgastadas. A limpeza do quarto também não era bem feita. Estacionamento complicado e café da manhã fraco. Em resumo o hotel é muito caro para oque oferece.

Adoramos a estadia! Voltaremos!!
Hotel muito bonito, bem localizado no Bairro da Passagem com uma linda vista do canal do Itajuru e no pólo gastronômico da região. Próximo a Ilha do Japonês e a 15 min da Praia do Forte. Hospedamos eu e minha filha. Quartos com limpeza impecável e aconchegantes com decoração estilo português que gosto muito. Café da manhã gostoso com opção de pedido La carte (pedimos Ovos poché, waffles de pão de queijo e panquecas de morango) sem custo adicional. Funcionários extremamente atenciosos. Adoramos.
