Great location if you are into going to the beach but the hotel is in need of an upgrade in the rooms. Very friendly helpful staff, and the lobby was a comfortable place to sit and use the free wifi (Expensive if you want access in your room). Would have preferred free access in the room.
The buffet breakfast was good with a fair selection of food. Everything looked spotlessly clean. One staff member was testing the food checking the temp etc.
Brazil is expensive and for what you got at the hotel it was quite expensive but if you were there for the beach and it was beach weather then it would be a reasonably priced hotel.

2. a popular Brazilian snack, the 'Globo' can only be described as a mixture between a quaver and a prawn cracker, and are not recommended by us!
Today has been a crazy busy day, but we have really loved the adventure and the wildlife!
See you tomorrow,
... Ruinas Park which has the relics of old mansion. It is now a museum and park and very beautiful with great views toward Sugarloaf Mountain. It was time for lunch and we found a lovely café in the Santa Teresa. After lunch we down the hill toward the neighbourhood of Lapa. Enroute to Lapa we stopped off at the Stadium where they hold the annual Carnival - the samba schools have old costumes from previous years and it was great to see where it ...
... traveling up the west coast of South America for the last 3.5 months, getting a good sense of the people, how they lived, and their language. All of a sudden, I was in a country much more "American" in terms of the city layout and where I could only say a few words. Instead of asking people if they knew English, I was asking people if they knew Spanish and their response was normally a 'no'. I had been misinformed that Portuguese and Spanish are ...
