We had high expectations but it was a disappintment. Although the room we got was large and nice, very modern, with a view of the sea it didn't match the very high price we payed. the terraces are so crowded there is no privacy. You sit near and on top of your neighbors so at any moment they see and hear you in a very uncomfortable manner. There was no hairdryer and other minimal facilities in the room. But the main downside was the public areas. No comfortable place to sit or eat. If you come when the eating area is full (there is enough room for 3 couples) you get your dinner on a wooden hard bence on the side. The toillets in the "loby" are terrible. The food - well, my husband thought it is okay, average. I thought it was very low standard. So is the breakfast - mediocre. The attitude of the staff matches the quality of the hotel. They do everything "by the book", so you can't really complain but no real warmth or care. We didn't like it. Next day we changed to a much less expensive and pretentious place and were much happier!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- ASALEM is a seaside hideaway situated in Ilha Grande, a protected reserve of natural land where no cars are allowed. All our 5 enchanting waterfront suites are surrounded by the rain forest that overlooks the spectacular Bay of Abraäo. This proximity to the ocean offers rare, intimate glimpses of sea creatures such as starfish and turtles, as well as abundant schools of fish. The forest brings frequent visitors, including monkeys, squirrels, fireflies, blue butterflies and a wide variety of exotic tropical birds. This unspoiled peace of paradise is the perfect spot for honeymooners looking for privacy: we are 20 minutes apart from the main village walking in an accessible path or 5 minutes by the taxi boat we provide. Apart from the taxi boat service, available 24/7, we can arrange boat trips, transfers, massages, scuba diving, snorkeling and guided hikes. ... more less
