  • 6.0.Good

    Poor attention to details: room for 2 adults and 1 infant and only one glass and one cup are provided. Poor choice of toiletries, in fact, no hair conditioner was provided, had to request separately. Poor choice of sea food: staying by the ocean we expected to have a wide range of sea food, at least shrimps should have been a daily option. On a positive note, very child-friendly place, lovely surroundings and lots of great facilities to use

  • 2.0.Poor

    Lovely spot by the beach but the hotel is a sprawling concrete monstrosity. It’s also a 20 min taxi from the town of Praia Do Forte which is where all the restaurants, shops, turtle sanctuary, castle etc is located. We also had a bad experience with trying to cancel the reservation, within 24 hours of booking it, as soon as we found out it was out of town. Expedia told us that there would be a 2 night cancellation policy despite the location of the hotel being wrongly advertised. They also then failed to adequately tell us that if we checked in without amending the reservation we would have to pay for the full length of stay. All in all a really poor and frustrating communication between ourselves Expedia and Iberostar. Both companies refused to accept responsibility and were blaming the other company, back and forth..... We ended up leaving early to stay somewhere much nicer but having to pay the full fee for the all Inclusive Iberostar. I won’t be using either companies again if I can help it ...

    Iberostar sempre uma boa escolha

    Um resort otimo, para ir com familias e amigos. Como há várias piscinas, há opções de mais descanso ou mais agito. A comida e a bebida também é bastante justa com varias opções.

    Excelente

    Cama grande confortavel, quarto amplo e agradável com vista do mar de verdade. Tem uma parte mais barulhenta por causa das atividades de animação, se quiser silêncio e sossego, peça para ficar longe. A comida é otima, muito variada. Os restaurantes temáticos são ótimos e só podem ser reservados a depender do número de diárias que você vai ficar, o que foi uma má notícia pra mim. As bebidas são variadas e muito boas. Alguns garçons te servem na piscina, embora demore bastante às vezes. O SPA é itimo para descansar. As medidas de contenção à covid são realmente levadas a sério

    Amazing hotel and an unbelievable level of good service. Very good food and range of drinks. The prestige part was well worth the upgrade fee.

    This property is very run down. The rooms smell very musty and moldy. The bathrooms are a disgrace. Perhaps 20 years ago, this property was nice, but now it is severely in need of refurbishment. There is no way this is 4/5 stars. I would rate it a 2/5, and I feel like I am being generous. On a positive note, the meals were pretty decent.
