4/10 Fair

What I liked? Closed to the airport and nice staff What I didnt like? They did not have my reservation information. Called them a bunch of times to let them know i was arriving at 2 am without success. None of their contact numbers, emails or whatsapp numbers worked. We were assigned a room where the internet password displayed on the wall wasnt working. The bed was hard as a rock and the A/C was dirty. It gave me allergies the moment it was turned on.

overnight stay near the airport
Check in was a bit confusing. I arrived late, around 950pm. I initially requested for a transfer a few days before but nobody was replying so I had to get an airport taxi. The receptionist didn't speak eng/spanish so it was a challenge, but she checked me in anyway. Luiza arrived and received payment for my stay and arranged for an early airport transfer the next morning. Room is spacious, basically a house converted into a hostel. Bathrooms are clean, sheets and towels are provided.

Nice hotel close to the airport
This small hotel is close to the airport and in a very quiet neighborhood. It is undergoinging renovations and looking very nice. The proprietor is very friendly and outgoing even though she spoke no English and we spoke no Portuguese! It's also located in a beach community. Breakfast is provided free of charge. I would stay there again!
