“Dissapointing experience”
Reviewed 22 February 2008

The hotel is well located right on Joao Fernandes beach. However, if you're traveling with kids this is not the best option because the stairs are long and steep. The beach in itself it's not that pretty, since it's very narrow and after lunch it becomes extremely crowded.

We booked a one-bedroom apartment and a room. They both had a good size, though the dining table was rather small. Everything was clean. HOWEVER, the kitchen and the bathrooms were disgusting. The kitchen had just a stove and a refrigerator that was difficult to open a closed because it was all rusty. The kitchen came equiped with 2 saucepans and tea pot, and the tableware. It was basically imposible to cook, even if you were cooking for a 6 month old, as I was.

The bathrooms were horrible. They were small, mold was growing all over and there was no bathtub.

The staff is polite and try as much as they can to improve the situation (they brought a frypan and some additional cuttlery for me to be able cook at least a boiled potato) but the infrastructure is just not there.

On our last night there (we spent 10 days) around 1:00am a tecno-party began at the beach. The noise level in our rooms was way above what would be allowed in any US city (it felt like being inside a disco). Management first said was not aware of the party, then they apologized, but they didn't even provide earplugs, never offer to change our room. Of course, they didn't offer to give us our money back for a night we were not able to sleep at all. We were 4 adults and 4 kids ( 4, 3, 2 years-old and a 6 month old baby) that could not sleep at all. At 4:30am we drove back to Rio and the party was still going on. It seems these parties happens often therefore it is unacceptable that the rooms are not soundproof.

What I hated the most was all the lying and the empty apologies (they came without any solutions). I'm not going back, EVER!!!!!
