Hotel da Praça belongs to the same owner of Pousada Arizona and the tourism agency "Agência AR", which can promote to you the best integrated reservation packs for local tourism, including their brand new accommodations (opened on Nov 2nd, 2012), local transport, sightseeing, etc.
In fact it was a miracle find out a week before our stay, two available bedrooms on their high season with visiting to all sightseeing we wanted along six days to four persons. The town was simply full. All sightseeings at Bonito have a controlled number of people which usually ends in two or three months before this period. It is a ecological regulatory procedure control. Because this, before go there, It is recommend to plan ahead all your daily schedule of your entire stay.
Remembering we are brazilians, our touristic support was made by Miss Josi Rossatt (from Pousada Arizona) whose services and attention to us and our situation (reserving on the last minute) was simply impressive, because most trip agencies in town, were not so interested to work hard (as she did) at that moment, because a week before, everybody already made their day! At that moment, if there were some interesting thing to do in order to visit, certainly it would demand a hard work to find out in order to sell it.
Miss Josi Rossatt definitely has our appreciation, because demonstrated that has a professional posture which unfortunately most brazilians do not have yet to our tourism. "May the Force be with you" (foreigner) on the next World Cup of 2014 in Rio de Janeiro... you will need it!
We vote on Miss Rossatt in order to be a manager on 2013!
The hotel is brand new, the rooms are cozy with conditioning air, the regular area like swimming pool and restaurant are pretty good, the breakfast is simple but good enough to maintain your energy until the lunch, which is usually made on one of your outdoor touring. There is no safe in the rooms. Until that day there were no TV sets on the rooms, but certainly till your vacation they will provide them. The wireless internet is good (provided by three 3Gs links) and attend all floors unless the roof, where is located the swimming pool, big jacuzzi and breakfast room.
There is an opened parking area, and although the hotel's fronkdesk is 24h, there is nothing to worry about with your vehicle because Bonito is a pretty safety town.
Prepare your stomach, because all fish on the restaurants are full of oil. And DO NOT GO to "OCA DA MANDIOCA" a restaurant near the hotel because it is a tipical tourist trap! The worst and expensive meal you will have in the town.
On the other hand, there are a lots of good restaurants near from this hotel, where you can have a good typical local dinner, like Pantanal, Cantinho do Peixe and Casa do João (if Mr. João be in a good day!).
If you like ice cream, you need to visit a place four blocks from the hotel named Palácio do Sorvete. Actually is a ice cream factory which sells their own product in a hot saloon made by local and weird fruits.
Would you like a snack? Go to Vicio da Gula, three blocks from hotel. Best place in town to have a honest sandwich and juice with regional fruits, made with mineral water (which is a very important item on that region).
Those were our tips.
Good look and have a nice trip to Bonito.
