“Better find somewhere else”
Reviewed 27 February 2012

When going to this paradise place, try finding somewhere else to stay. even thoug in a great localization (close to the ferry boat and downtown, stores and places to eat), the rooms are very old, the sheets had dead bugs in it (better dead then alive, but still, should be washed!), very old sheets and mattress and pillow. Receptionist doesn't show any will to help you in anything (when asked about a drugstore only said in wich neighbourhood we would find, not any address or name or anything - if you ask for a drugstore you SURELY need more help!). Breakfest was good in the beggining, kinda pricey, but then some flies came around staying in the cheese and everything that wasn't covered, kind of disgusting. Bathroom toillet smelled very bad, it seems to have some kind of flood in it. I would only go back there if it was just to stay for a day or two and paying less then half of the price the better places would charge me.

Agradecemos a visita e pedimos desculpas se não alcançamos o esperado. Somos uma pousada realmente antiga, mas existem suítes com valores diversos e que acomodam de 02 até 05 pessoas. As suítes (B) são suítes realmente apertadas , sem box no banheiro e pouco atraentes. No entanto tudo trata-se de gosto, escolha e custo beneficio. Temos clientes que são habitoues e só preferem estas suítes, devido serem afastadas das demais e mais econômicas. Estas são bem procuradas por estrangeiros. As suítes (A) conforme fotos no site, são mais amplas e bem mais arejadas para quem tem problemas de renite, são mais recomendadas, já que são mais ventiladas. Quanto ao cheiro de mofo ou estranho, trata-se de maresias, umidade de lençol freático já que a pousada foi construída sobre rochas e as suítes térreas do fundo e lateral apresentam este estranho odor, mas não se trata de mofo. Agradecemos sua atenção e esperamos um dia receber vossa senhoria novamente. Que DEUS abençoe sempre. Helia. Lembrem-se que temos foto de como são nossas suítes (A) e (B) no nosso site: www.chalesuisso.com.br. A localização é estratégica , já que da pousada para o centro histórico fica 25 minutos andando e menos de 10 minutos de carro. As praias próximas são simples, mas a Engenho Dagua que caminhando menos de 10 minutos é própria, tem escola de velejadores e estrutura de quiosque, mesa, cadeira e serve excelentes porções e bebidas diversas.

OBS: Peço desculpas por qualquer desconforto e querendo voltar, exceto feriado 01 diária é por nossa conta. Minimo de 02 diárias.
