Foi uma supreaa agradável. Hotel não difícil de localizar. Piscina Maravilhosa, Estrutura sensacional. O preço das refeições, principalmente da tarde, é bem salgado. Eu irei voltar lá novamente, sem dúvida!

Nunca mais voltarei nesse lugar.

A pior virada de ano que passei. O hotel deixou bem claro desde o início que estava nos fazendo um favor em nos receber. O espaço imenso e muito maau proveitado, a comida caríssima e ruim, tudo tem que ser comprado com eles e tudo com preços superfaturados, o chuveiro ou esquentava demais até arrancar seu couro ou esfriava demais, choveu no dia 31 por volta das 16:00 e logo ficamos sem luz e permanecemos sem luz até às 22:00 porque o estabelecimento não possui um gerador o desespero tomou conta de todos pois pensávamos que iríamos passar a virada no escuro, as crianças desassossegadas no escuro reclamavam e os pais já não sabiam oq fazer para acalma-las, mosquitos e calor insuportável, ninguém nos ofereceu nada e nem sequer um pedido de desculpas ou um apoio qualquer dos funcionários e proprietário. Um rapaz que estava com a família ( duas crianças entre 4 e 7 anos e esposa) resolveu colocar o carro com o farol virado em direção a suíte para acalmar as crianças e clarear um pouco as nossas suítes foi duramente repreendido pelo proprietário ,preocupado com o seu gramado e não trazendo nenhuma solução. Nunca mais voltarei nesse lugar.
