The hotel is in a history building in which was first built on the 20's to be a cassino hotel. When the cassinos become outlaw in brasil it was empty and them the minas Gerais government reopened it on the 90's. The building is huge, and really beautiful. It's lobby is really big an luxury and makes you fell back on the old days. The poll is really comfortable and big, with a great view of the lake and a huge garden area, what makes it a really good place to be with the family. The rooms are good (nothing in especial). The food is the only bad point, what is really rare once Araxa is knowing by it great foods! The staff are nice, but they didn't receive the appropriate training. The Spa 'thermas' is really great, with a lot of different bath options, but it's too expansive! The indoor swimming pool is really beautiful. Overall, the structure is from a really good 5 star hotel but the service is up from a 3 star one, but the spa makes the trip worth it!!!
