We had the morning free so I caught up on my blog and we had a late breakfast. We left for the airport on the Brazil side at 1:00 PM and had a 3:15 flight on TAM, the Brazilian sister airline to LAN at 3:15. Both airlines are excellent! Great planes and service. We landed after 5:00 PM and it took us two hours to get to the hotel with the traffic. …

Our room, 1100 was old, dirty, had stained carpet and was badly in need of repair. One chair in the room and one on the balcony which was covered with paint. The lounge was so loud that you could not sit and talk. There is no sitting area in the lobby though there is a lot of open space. Very customer unfriendly. Best thing in the hotel is the pool. Food was good.
