Spacious room, very clean, staff is wonderful, food and drinks are just perfect. We loved the restaurant Bahia. The chefs Menezes and Roberto were absolutely amazing. To me, they should be considered the best chefs in the world. Menezes went out of his way to help us to taste their delicious food. Many Thanks for Almir who patiently listened to...

Rooms, beach & spa facilities are excellent. The service is absolutely poor. From housekeeping who scream and laugh and intrude since 8 am, to unannounced construction in front of our window with extremely loud noise and workers all day long. Food is good at buffet, but none of the 4 restaurants provide great food or experience. The live shows at...

We have spent New Years at the hotel, on the presidential suite. The suite had most amazing views over the beach, two jacuzzis and was suitable for our 4 persons family. The amenities could have been better but the bed was comfy and everything was Ok despite noticing some use on the furniture and exterior terrace. The food was average...

I've been at this hotel many times and for sure it's still one of the best all inclusive resorts of Brazil. It's getting more and more expensive year after year, but it's still rewarding. For me building 6 is the best option to stay if you have kids and want to be in the center of everything and activities going...

Our ocean-view suites were better than I had anticipated. The rooms were clean, in good repair, and made-up fresh every day. The staff was exceptional, very friendly, and helpful. Food service throughout the property was above average for facility of this magnitude. Great swimming pools, and very decent ocean frontage.

If I had to describe this resort in one word, I would certainly call it magic. In fact, it's very well located, close to a turtle reserve, and the environment is amazing: white sand beach, turquoise sea, paths dotted with palm trees: a real piece of heaven! The rooms are big, clean and some have a view on the beach....
