I had a wonderful time at his property, and enjoyed my days at the pool. Rooms were clean and bright with lots of natural light. Staff was friendly. The only off part was how long food service at the pool or to your room would take. Ordered a couple times and on both occasions it pushed 40mins to an hour. Safety was never an issue, gated community which was assuring. Would recommend this place to others!!

Great hospitality, delicious food, and picturesque location. I’m in love with every angle of this place. It is so calming and romantic. I will definitely comeback when I come back to Rio again.
