Keep in mind it's an expensive village. El Gordo is amongst the cheapest ones well located in the "Quadrado" historical area, but you'll still pay for that convenience.
Pros: location, comfortable rooms (nice bed, linen and towels), incredible views, courteous service, tasty breakfast.
Cons: rates, noise (if you stay in one of the rooms close to the restaurant), food & beverage prices, distance from the beach.
I understand it's an overpriced town, but charging R$50/person for breakfast is absolutely outrageous considering the offer. Also, none of the individual main courses cost less than R$80 and their standard service charge is 11% instead of the usual 10%. Food is good, but this just doesn't make sense.
I must say staff is always very friendly and although net being able to offer me a late check-out, they let me use a room to shower and freshen up before my flight.
