Reviewed 15 November 2011

The bad - Rooms were dark and felt a little dirty. Not enough lighting or fresh air. Bathroom was uncomfortable and dark. Water pressure poor. WiFi weak in rooms and fair in lobby.

The good - very friendly service everywhere. Convenient location. Food was good and extremely reasonably priced. Breakfast especially - huge variety and tons of delicious fresh fruit. Nice pool and relaxation areas.

Room Tip: Ask for pool facing with patio above ground level - that way you can keep sliding doors open at nigh...

We went to Real Minas for three nights. It had a really nice atmosphere. There was a really nice pool and breakfast was included. I found the staff helpful and very willing to accomodate. The wifi was good as well. It took about 10 minutes to walk downtown. We are very pleased we chose this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask specifically for a balcony that overlooks the pool. It's way nicer.

Nice courtyard accessing the reception desk, the restaurant, lounge area, etc. Decent restaurant. Not much English spoken at the desk. Be prepared to struggle a bit, but when the concierge was on duty she was helpful.
Extensive Spa services sounded nice but I did not sample.

Room amenities nice--desk, fast, free WiFi in the room. Good comfortable bedding.

One complaint: pool was murky. Nice design, probably sanitary, but the water was far from crystal clear. Not pleasant. (Nice big pool towels provided--a plus.)

Room Tip: Avoid corner rooms. They are wedged shaped with tiny balcony.

It's a nice hotel, loved the swimming pool in the summer, conveniently located near the downtown core. The staff was very friendly. We had a nice room with a small balcony overlooking the pool area.
Corn on the cob and roasted chicken vendors nearby. Yummy!

They downgrade my reserved room and tried to make that look like a mistake. Don't trust them, they're tricky. The service are very slow, they receive more people than they can attend.

Reviewed 17 March 2010

the hotel is ok for a short weekend. is clean and the service has improved a lot (since the last time I was there - about 2 years ago). The pool is great for kids. The food is not that good but with all the restaurants around..who cares. The only major issue I found is the "sleep quality"...too noisy..you hear everything!..I was not able to get a nice rest at night.
About the Extra restaurant/ bar charges. I have to double check my account because somo "extra" charges were made to my room which did not belong to us...so...assuming "good intentions"...Watch out!.
