4/10 Fair

Nice swimming pools, great area. Rooms ok but a bit deteriorated, nothing even close to the pictures showed in Expedia. Breakfast could be better, service is terrible, towels are bad and full of stain. Doesnt worth the money.

8/10 Very good

Nice hotel on the beach with a beautiful pool
The hotel offers clean, basic accommodations. The hotel is a bit remote for our family. Porto de Galinhas is a 10 minute taxi ride away, which offers some casual dining options. The hotel has one restaurant which was fair.

2/10 Poor

very very disappointed
Very disappointed. They down grade our room without telling us. impossible to communicate. Very far and expensive to go to twon. Room does not have some necessary staff like chair, sofa and such. Over charged us for 2 days because they fail to make the change in the time they allowed. Over all very disappointed.

Precisando de melhoras
Já sou cliente do Marulhos, e adoro o local, o que me chamou a atenção foi o mau estado de conservação do hotel. Armário danificado, uma aparência de descaso, o bar da praia desativado fedendo a mofo, sinais claros de má gestão do patrimônio. O restaurante não poderia ficar de fora, apesar do atendimento excelente da funcionária, a qualidade e quantidade dos alimentos deixou muito a desejar. Espero que melhore logo, pois o lugar é maravilhoso, muito lindo mesmo, já foi o melhor Resort da região, mas está precisando de uma manutenção urgente para recuperar sua qualidade
