Reviewed 24 December 2013 via mobile

I came here and there is absolutely nothing to do. There is only a swimming pool and the beach. The rooms are poor with little decorations and the view is terrible. In this hotel there is only one little bar that has a lack of food, the restaurant has a few option, the breakfast is ok, but lunch and dinner is even worst there is always the same option even though it's Christmas. The internet is the worst, you can only connect one device per room to the internet and the internet is horrible, I have to come to the lobby to go on the internet, the lobby has no AC which kills me. DONT EVER COME TO THIS HOTEL!

Stayed: December 2013

Very nice for family, if you want to rest Salinas is an excellente choice.

Children always have good entertainment activities, so parents can relax once they are happy and busy.

Good food and good service.

Room Tip: choose apartment at ground floor and stay far from pool.

Juarez,

Our main focus is to welcome families throughout Brazil with the greatest attention, affection, kindness, leisure and comfort possible and it is very nice to know that your vacation surrendered unforgettable moments with us. Maceio is a paradise with many charms and is always perfect when we have a corner to rest, enjoy the view and be able to see our kids having fun safely, is not it?

Thank you for choosing Salinas de Maceió and for your time to come here. We hope to see you guys very soon. A warm hug on behalf of the entire team.

The good: The location is beautiful, the beach is awesome, service is very kind, the pool is nice, nice rooms with a balcony, the food is very decent and it is a good value for money.

The bad: Make no mistake: this is not a resort. If you are coming to this hotel pray for a sunny day because otherwise you will not have much to do but to stay inside your room. And bring your repelent along because mosquitos are abundunt around. The room can be noisy depending on your neighbour as you can hear absolutely everything through the walls.

Room Tip: Away from the pool and on the ground floor.

We stayed in this hotel in the Winter season in Brazil (June) and unfortunately what we saw in photos was not what we see when we stayed there. The ocean water was not that transparent so we ended up enjoying more the hotel food and amenities. It is amazing how we can eat in this hotel, that serves a variaty of foods every day. I recommend!

Rimorilha,

Glad your stay was pleasant. The food here northeastern Alagoas is even a hit, right? A delight after another, you can not even want to stop! :)

A pity that the season chosen not yielded much sun, but in a tropical region like ours, small intervals of rain take place. We hope to see you again soon here during the summer to enjoy the best the coast of Alagoas and Salinas de Maceió can offer.

A loving embrace on behalf of the entire team.

Had taken all-inclusive package and it turned out to be a great value for money as there were six meals a day on a 3 nights / 4 days package! Rates for extra items like cerveja, whiskey, other drinks were also very reasonable. Night musinic program was very interesting when a few Indian Hindi Songs were plyed. Area is neat and clean, rooms are good. It has excellent swimming pool facility with a bridge in btween. Location on the cool & calm beach is another attraction. Staff is very humane and responsive! It provided us a full relaxation!

Room Tip: Package was taken through booking.com with payments in 10 instalments without interest.

I was really pleasantly surprised!! The first day I was full of despair, for the rest of the week I never wanted to leave; When we arrived I was disappointed at the size and quality/cleanliness of the room for a family of 4 and on the first night we had no sleep as the entertainment loudspeakers were pointing right at our block and the noise went on forever. But these were the only complaints and in the end we were hardly ever in the room! As for the entertainment, it changed location every night so we were not bothered again..even though the hotel was very helpful and would have helped us change room if I had insisted.
We had an incredible holiday thanks to the resort and its location. It is set on a wonderful stretch of coastline, right in front of the hotel is a lovely beach with big waves (fun for older kids and body surfing and the hotel bar staff work hard to keep you supplied with drinks and parasols..) then to the left and right are kms of deserted beach lined with palm trees. Long romantic walks and just 10 minutes away the water is also calmer if you want to swim with younger kids. We had no hustlers whatsoever and the locals were really friendly. The pools were great and run through the center of the resort. The staff were very professional, extremely hardworking and friendly. We were there in high season and were amazed at how tidy and clean they kept the restaurant. The food was ok and always a good selection to choose from. There were 2 kids clubs for the different age groups and the kids were entertained from 7am to late at night! the animators are omnipresent but never in your face, an amazing achievement! There was also constant entertainment for the adults : beach volley, beach football, aquagym, dance lessons. What I loved was the good vibe and friendly atmosphere all round and the fact that if you wanted peace it was also easy to find. We were so comfortable we only got around to one excursion and were treated like VIP. TIP: book the excursion through the hotel, then you go direct to the location. If you go through your agency you are more likely to be one stop on a route of many pick ups from different hotels. We booked through the hotel which was amazingly good value and we were just 2 families with a van and guide at our total disposal all day. We went to GUNGA, an hour away, where you can enjoy some amazing activities like quads or buggy rides along the coastline. There are also some beautiful snorkeling locations to visit in Maceio/Maragogi. The sea in this are is stunning, a lovely aqua-marine. I would definitely recommend for families with kids of all ages. For a small resort it offers a lot more than most large resorts - safe, friendly, attentive and very caring. A good choice and we got what we wanted - a wonderful relaxing beach holiday with some easy worthwhile excursions and the kids kept busy and safe.

Room Tip: I would go for the room first floor up so you can leave the doors open. Unless you can sleep with a...

All hotel facilities looked brand new. The swimming pool area was nice. Even the prices of the drinks (what is usually overpriced) were good. The all inclusive (breakfast/lunch and dinner) meals were very good. Really nice food for all tastes (red meat, fish, pasta, nice desserts, etc.).
The kindness of the staff was really something Congratulations for the staff that really cares about you. Lots of activities during the day.
We had a funny stand-up comedy show one night, a live music group another night at the hotel for free.
I didnt go to the beach there, because I spent my mornings and afternoons in other beaches (snorkeling). We went to downtown Maceio for the night with good restaurants and bars.
Be careful with taxi drivers at night in the airport. We had to wait more than 30 minutes to find taxis when we arrived at 4am and the prices offered really vary a lot. I costs you from R$60 to R$120 from the airport to the resort. The resort can call the taxi for you at a fixed rate at reasonable price (not the cheapest but fair).
In the lobby, there is a rental office were I got a car to drive around since the resort is kind of far from everywhere and I didnt want to depend on taxis or group trip buses.
The room was nice with airconditioner. Free wifi just in the lobby, otherwise you have to pay for it.
