The breakfast was good, I'd like a better orange juice!
Ventilator at the living room of the apart
Good breakfast, very omfy bed and spacious apartment. The location is great if you want to spend time on the beach, there is easy access to both family-friendly shallow waters on the south as well as the more lively surf-beach on the norhtern side of the Pontal stone. Local area is calmer than Rio centro (and far away) with less hustle and bustle, and seeminlgy safer. Within 30 mins walk, you'll find shopping centers and a good selection of restaurants/bars.
The staff have little to no knowledge of English (or other languages besides Portuguese) which could mean complications for some, but the staff are friendly and don't shy away form trying to help even across the language barrier. Our friend who speaks some Spanish fared better, as it's somewhat related, but he also met with some funny misunderstandings along the way. The noise level from the surrounding area can get very intense though, if your room is facing the road as ours did. The insulation is not great, and Brazilians seemingly never sleep! ;)
Staff was kind and attentive, breakfast was good, also good location close to the beaches and various restaurants and supermarket. In the building there is a pharmacy, a laundry-mat and a pet-shop.
The room on the first floor facing the street not really ideal because of the noise coming from the main street, the A/C very noisy (because old) and the bed totally uncomfortable because 2 single mattress were put together so that they were slippery.
large suite with stove and fridge, parking garage
