3 out of 5

Fantastic location,great food,room extra simple

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants
Cons: tinybasic rooms
The Hotel although simple was in the BEST location and had an excellent resturant with cocktails ! The room itself was tiny with simple bedding but the safe worked and the bathroom was clean. For those on a budget it's great. The beach is right out the back door.

If the parents or the legal guardian, as applicable, cannot or are unwilling to give this authorization, a judicial authorization is required. People intending to travel to Brazil with children must consult with the Brazilian consulate prior to traveling for more information.
