Parents or a legal guardian traveling with children under 18 years must present the child's birth certificate and an identity card with photo (passport, for example) at the check-in. For international travels from Brazil, if just one of the parents is traveling with the child, she/he must present – in addition to the child's certificate of birth and identity card with photo – a letter authorizing the trip signed by the other parent with a notarial certification of signature. In case the parents or the legal guardian, as applicable, cannot or are unwilling to give this authorization, a judicial authorization is required. People who intend to travel to Brazil with children must consult with the Brazilian consulate before traveling for more information.

Only registered guests are allowed in the guestrooms.

Hotel is not at the Mercure standard. I understand it is under renovation and has been taken over just recently, but this should be pointed out clearly at the web side

Tired looking hotel, not a 4*
We came here for a bit of luxury, let me tell you..............This is not a 4 star hotel, it is about 15 years out of date, desperate need of modernisation. The decor is extremely dated and seems to be fraying at the edges, the pool looked unclean, the gym was old, lacked equipment with anything there straight from the 90's. AC units need to be updated to a modern unit for better circulation and temperature control. Bathroom plumbing wasn't great, constantly leaking after showering or using the toilet. Hotel is known for an excellent breakfast but was met with a mediocre buffet. Do not waste your money if you're expecting luxury, however, if there's a deal and you're looking for an average place to sleep, this place will do, the beds were fine and the rooms were clean.

good food /location
Comfortable and quiet room. Right across the street from the beach. Close to airport and shopping. Great food and selection at morning buffet, included in stay. Only drawback I experienced was spotty and weak WiFi in room.

Needs a big facelift
The hotel is really run down and the wifi connection is extremely slow. It is well located next to the beach, so there is a good view to wake up to.
