You can not fault the location of this property, right on the beach front close to good restaurants and shops. Rooftop pool has stunning views, but it gets busy around sunset time and is open to the public so can be overcrowded late afternoon. Reception staff very helpful and speak good English. Free pool and beach towels and beach chairs was an added bonus. Room with sea view was lovely to wake up to every morning.
Breakfast options were limited, the hot food was the same everyday - we stayed 5 nights (scrambled egg, sausage, potatoes). Service at the bar / restaurant at pool level was unacceptably slow; we ordered a salad and sandwich at lunchtime and it took an hour to arrive even though it wasn’t busy. They didn’t apologise nor offer reduced rate, or ask if we even wanted another drink. The photos are not reflective of the hotel, they’ve obviously had a professional photo shoot, but our room and the facilities didn’t look anything close to those on here. WiFi is intermittent in the rooms, we had to keep going to reception for a reliable signal. Bike hire is chargeable - another hotel we stayed at in Ipanema provided these for free. Lobby bar was expensive - 2 small bottles of water were 18 Rs. (2 in a shop) This hotel has a lot of potential to be stunning but it doesn’t quite hit the mark, and for the price we paid it was disappointing compared to a smaller (and nicer) hotel we stayed in on the same beach with better facilities for a cheaper rate. Our room wasn’t cleaned until late afternoon every day which I found odd and it wasn’t cleaned too well when we arrived - dead mosquitoes in the bathroom. For the price we paid overall, I expected much better. But perhaps western standards differ. It’s a bit like an expensive Faulty Towers in my (humble) opinion.
The view from the room and the top floor is absolutely stunning! Breakfast is delicious and the hotel is very well located.
If you want to be away from the internet, that is the place to be! Room service is disproportionately expensive.
Staff was helpful. Location was good.
Wifi was a problem . Small room
In front of the beach, as long as you have a Sea view room which is expensive. The rooftop with pool is great but gets packed fast! The view is amazing . The personnel from restaurant on top floor were very good! Unlike lobby, etc.
Too expensive, staff at lobby (weekend ) not very welcoming. The Bells trying to do business with their taxis friends . Use UBER, its cheap and safe. The hotel could improve service. An investment in riooms and lobby would be great
The views and location are great, and i felt safe.
Hot water took 10 minutes, and floors were dirty.
