  • 6.0.Good

    Property grounds are beautiful, my dissapoint was with the check in process and the way the staff handled it. They told us Expedia did not send them our reservation so we ended up staying in another property with no amenities. We had to walk in the sand to use the amenities at the hotel. They did give us a descount on the rating, which ended up being a bit lower than the original price but for no amenities, not sure it was worth it. Check in staff was not professional and there was no manager on site to help. We were told the manager had left for the day and would not return. Very dissapointing. Lorenzo was very nice, after we had finally gotten a room in the other hotel, he was nice to walk us there and got us to have breakfast in the original property, which was much nicer than where we ended up staying. Lady at check in had an attitude and was not friendly at all. For the price charged I would expect a lot more. Please train your reception staff to smile and be more professional and friendly.

    Hotel muito bom , cidade perfeita

    Tive a oportunidade de ficar nos dois tipos de quarto, superior com piscina exclusiva, e inferior, com a piscina maior. os quartos sao iguais, e sinceramente preferi o de baixo, como o hotel é de certa forma pequeno, a piscina não fica cheia ou seja já considerado exclusivo o de baixo...sei la o de cima parecia que estava em um aquario ....mais valeu a experiencia. Pessoal de atendimento, muito banaca..todos eles. Café da manha muito bom.... Achei que o restaurante deixa a desejar com opcoes e tambem no sabor, na parte de drinks muito fraco mesmo, poucas opcoes . Fui no hotel do lado vila calango, lá sim os pratos eram tão tops que fui outras duas vezes, e os drinks feitos por quem realmente sabe! O essenza por ser um dos melhores da cidade deveria investir em um cardápio para fazer a diferença, e esta muito longe disso.De modo geral tudo muito bom , mais poderia dizer que o valor da diaria está acima das espectativas.

    Fato de permitirem som nos quartos até às 22:00 fica um show de mix junto com o som da piscina. Achei que pelo valor deveria haver critérios de volume de som nos quartos . Restaurante - ficamos 45 min aguardando atendimento no dia que agendamos comemoração de aniversário - menu degustação. Enfim, não acho que vale escolher esse hotel em Jeri.

    O hotel é agradável. Atendimento muito bom. Apartamento bom ( nada de excepcional ). O que nos incomodou foi a limpeza do apartamento. Limpeza bem básica. No quarto dia de nossa estadia solicitei a troca da roupa de cama ( porém esta só foi trocada após uma segunda solicitação ). Na minha opinião um hotel deste nível deveria fazer a troca da roupa de cama a cada 3 dias. Em ambientes de praia transpiramos mais, usamos mais filtros solares, mais cremes hidratantes e isso acaba por deixar a roupa de cama mais “ suja”.

    Achei os quartos super confortáveis, e as piscinas excelentes, tanto a privativa, como a comunitária no andar de baixo! Poder ver o por do sol do seu quarto na piscina privativa é um luxo! A vista para a praia e dunas é maravilhosa. O café da manhã bom e variado! O almoço com frutos do mar, foi ok, poderia ser melhor. Mas, com certeza volto para lá! É uma paz, muita tranquilidade para quem precisa! Tipo eu!
