We've finished our first full day in Brazil and it was a full day. Last night, Christy and Evan arrived and we went across the street from our hotel for dinner and to watch the US/Portugal game. Nothing was in English so we did a combination of guessing and pointing out food on other people's tables to order. It was delicious. Of course it was a disappointment that the US lost their lead with just a few seconds to go, but a tie is better than a ...
... an hour and a half conversing and hanging with us. In fact, they invited us to so many different places we were wondering if we would be able to fit it all in. Nonetheless, it was quite nice to find welcoming people and atmosphere.

great. it was the best and what different is the omelette, filled with ham and cheese. I love to eat Ham, cheese with bread. And of course not forget fruits and coffee.
I would give 3 stars if they had free and better wifi connection.
The swimming pool and gym is small and fit for few of us.
