The hotel is located about 2 blocks from the beach so you feel more like youre in the city. Check in was a little difficult because even though we requested 2 beds they gave us 1 and we had to go back down to the conceirge to get it straightened out and they seemed annoyed and unwilling to even try speak anything other than Portuguese even though they say that they're multilingual. The best thing there was the doorman who spoke about 3 or 4 different languages and spoke to us in both Spanish and English, he really helped straighten everything out.
Once the rooms situation was fixed we ended up with a great view of the Christ the Redeemer statue from our window. Our room was a pretty good size with a sitting area, a good sized bathroom. However housekeepings only job seemed to be to make the beds and exchange towels because the used cups were never exchanged for clean ones and I even found that the sheet that put on my bed one night had a stain. On the good side the AC in the room worked and was awesome after spending a hot day in the sun. Theres free continental breakfast which an amazing array of different foods, the lunch and dinner menu are decent, nothing amazing. Theres about 10 different places to eat within 2 blocks of the hotel and theres also a great internet cafe across the street in the shopping center and theres a bank with ATMs right next door to the hotel which turned out to be really convenient. Its a short 2 block walk to the beach and on the weekend they have a market of sorts set up along the way. Its not a bad location for the price.
If your looking for a discount and a Not to Shaby place, this is a good hotel. People are friendly downstairs, they speak Spanish, English and of course their native language. Only thing I didn't like is the atmosphere....something about it that made it seem it wasn't happenin. Or maybe it just me. Girls are beautiful (the ones that walk in and out). One good thing about that location is it felt like we were apart of the everyday life instead of the vacation life. It give it an authentic feeling. Being several blocks away, we were able to walk around (inside city blocks) and get to know the city......the beach was easy to get familiar with.
