We all had a wonderful holiday, the apartment was superb, spacious and well equipped, and exceeded all our expectations, with the daily fresh rolls an added bonus. Reception was very helpful with any enquiries and the pool facilities were excellent. The on site fine dining restaurant was delightful and the staff provided excellent service and were very personable. We have already been recommending it to our friends.
The resort was very nice, apartment was perfect for what we needed, if i was being at all critical i would say the resort could perhaps benefit from a few more facilities, but location wise it was perfect especially for proximity to the lake. many thx to you and Sandy Blue for all your help!
Stayed in September and then again in October for a week! We will definitely visit again. Spacious, clean, modern apartments. Helpful friendly staff. There ARE restaurants within walking distance - Tucano's on site and Casa do Lago 10 minutes stroll away on the lake - a beautiful spot to see the sunset.You can walk to other beach restaurants for lunch - 20 minutes to Gigis, similar to 2 passos, the walk is stunning through the national park. This is one of my favourite places on earth! Yes you do need a car for shopping.
