We've stayed for a week at Monte do Carmo, and coming from another resort, a comparison quickly occurred : Time was just passing very slow … awesome. So quite, so fresh, even with almost 38 degrees, and so relaxing that we just loved it. The pool has its issues, some like it others don't (maybe swimming with frogs it's not their ideal), but for us it was ... different, only that. The staff was very helpful to whatever we needed or requested, we never heard a "No" or "Can't". I loved fishing Bass in the private dam that existed inside the huge amount of land, which surrounded the Hotel. A very nice and relaxing place to stay and enjoy some peace.
