    The breakfast was extraordinary. They even change little details day to day like the china and foods served. The pool is beautiful and the view is breathtaking! The service is top notch and the rooms are clean and lovely.

    Beautiful spot near Santa Teresa and Lapa surrounded by lush tropical gardens that help you forget you’re in the city. The owners are super friendly and helpful and the breakfast is AMAZING.
