I have been fortunate to travel all over the world, staying at an array of different level hotels and guest houses (including the likes of the mandarin oriental, shangri la and raleis and chateau), but have never written a review before; a review on John's little abode however requires special mention. This is a wonderful place to stay. John is a great host and together with his team of staff run a tight ship catering to all your needs. The bungalows are luxurious, and the pool is a lovely treat. Breakfast was a total joy each morning and definitely the best we experienced on our trip to brazil. John even left dvd's on our bed which he thought we would enjoy watching, which was a lovely gesture. My only minor criticism would be the shower which was too weak for me- more rain drops than jets. That said I would not hesitate to recommend this place- it's definitely head and shoulders above many 5*s out there! Thank you again John.
