Sao Rafael Oct 22.
Loved our 2bed/2bath suite. Balcony was huge,plenty space for everyone to chill. Comfiest beds and pillows, I've experienced in a hotel. Food was plentiful and staff couldn't be more helpful. Indoor pool was great, as wasn't quite warm enough to swim outdoors. My only negative comment would be that the jacuzzi wasn't available during our stay. Would definitely love to go back.

Well worth a visit
We had a short stopover at this hotel. From the front the building perhaps doesn't look that great but the garden and pool area is beautiful. From the outdoor balcony upstairs you have sea views. The hotel is in a quiet area with a short walk to the nearest beach. Well worth a visit for couples and families.
