  • 8,0.Very good

    Beautiful and good location

    We moved to Solar from one of the Recanto properties as Solar had availability so we can compare the two. The Premium Recanto had a great pool area and excellent breakfast. Solar breakfast was ok. Both hotels downstairs smelled very moldy and Solar seemed to make us feel bad. We moved to the 2nd floor at Solar the final night and that was better. I prefer the Recanto if there is availability. Solar is a beautiful hotel also.

    We loved this hotel but what really made it special was the staff. They are very nice, attentive and competent. The quality of the drinks at the pool were fantastic. Best cuba libre I ever had.

    Great place.

    Cabo Frio is challenged with good hotels, but this is the best of them all. Haven't found a better place, and happy to stay here again.

    O hotel é maravilhoso, atendimento ótimo, limpeza impecável, cama e roupas de cama/banho muito confortáveis! Ah e o chuveiro tbm é ótimo!! Fiquei num quarto em que a janela era próxima a área da piscina e, mesmo assim, não tive problemas com barulho, aliás o local é perfeito para quem quer relaxar.. O café da manhã estava sempre bem fresquinho (acho q poderia ter mais variedade de bolos, mas isso não foi um problema), o waffle de pão de queijo estava delicioso, (repeti várias vezes rsrs) e as mini panquecas também estavam muito gostosas! No geral, não tenho nada a reclamar, foi um dos melhores hotéis onde já me hospedei :)

    Hotel muito lindo!

    Adoramos o hotel! Limpo, aconchegante, próximo a ótimos restaurantes. Além de ter estacionamento incluso no preco. O café da manha é uma delicia. O servico é ótimo. Os funcionários sao super prestativos (pricipalmente o Sr. Mauro que cuida do café da manha). Nota 10 em todos os quesitos! Voltaremos com certeza!

    Fiquei bem decepcionado com a estadia nesse hotel. Pelo preço da diária esperava muito mais. É apenas um hotel bonito e bem localizado. Os serviços deixaram a desejar. Fomos fazer um passeio antes do horário do café da manhã e não nos ofereceram nada pra levar. As toalhas de banho não poderiam nem ser usadas como pano de chão de tão desgastadas. A limpeza do quarto também não era bem feita. Estacionamento complicado e café da manhã fraco. Em resumo o hotel é muito caro para oque oferece.
