    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.

    Grata surpresa

    O hotel é lindo! Amei! Foi uma grata surpresa. Não gostei da toalha de banho que era extremamente velha e não condiz com o hotel. A sauna é pessima , fria e só esquenta de um lado, essência de eucalipto seria bem vinda. No geral amei ! Contudo não recomendo o hotel para pessoas que querem silêncio e descanso absoluto, no fim fe semana o barulho da musica ao vivo dos bares vizinhos é uma loucura!

    Caro para o que oferece.

    Hotel super bem conservado e localizado. Piscina pequena e de água gelada. Café da manhã gostoso, poucas opções mas o famoso waffle de pão de queijo compensa. Na descrição do hotel falava que as roupas de cama seriam da Trousseau e as amenidades da L’occitane, o que não é verdade. Rua tranquila em baixa temporada, perto de restaurantes e de frente para o canal. Há outras excelentes opções de hotéis na região que tem crescido e se renovado.
