Also bad organization for sightings things,we were waiting so long for helicopter tour,which finally we never received .Now we moved to miramar hotel ,just one block from emiliano,where the breakfast is included in the price,we are with sea view junior and the price is half to emiliano .Breakfast is huge selection of everything,10 kind of fruits,pankaes,omlets and etc,and in emiliano we had noting.

Pro " The staff were extremely accommodating, helpful and friendly. Breakfast has an excellent range and is of high quality every day. Rooftop pool is relaxing and beautiful "
Con " The day before my arrival they blocked 208 EUR on my credit card, then they blocked circa another 300 on the card I used for the final payment (on top of the payment of circa 787 EUR for the 4 nights).   So, not only I paid 4 nights anticipated, but they temporarily took another 500 EUR, out of which 208 are still in the clouds 15 days after return.   Beyond anticipated payment of everything, plus passport number, plus contacts via, plus two credit cards… what else do they need from clients?   All this seems very incorrect. is it an hotel or a business bank?

8.9 Excellent (4,480 reviews)
Pro " Wonderful Hotel, devine spacious bedroom with great facilities. Super large pool, spa, fitness room and great dining room and lovely food. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Absolutely wonderful Hotel I would definitely stay here again. "
Con " The location in Lapa may appear a little edgy with graffiti on lots of buildings etc but don't be put off by this as it is quite safe in the area. There are some homeless people sleeping outdoors down the street from the Hotel but they do not bother tourists. We had to change rooms from one side of the swimming pool to the other as there was a very loud Rooster over the wall from our bedroom and he was an early riser, that solved our issue. "
