It was OK. Positives and negatives.

  • 2 of 5

Positives: Price, location.

Negatives: Small bed was not very comfortable. We were provided with only two towels for two people for eight days. We did run in to a person cleaning and we got two more on day five. Yes, a patio, but no chairs to sit on. Bedroom upstairs and bathroom down. Inconvenient. No soap provided. Poorly appointed.

But, it was a great location and the price was good.

Muito bom, recomendo!!

  • 5 of 5

Fiquei uma semana no quarto anexo desse imóvel, com entrada independente e a estadia cumpriu o que prometeu no anúncio. O quarto estava limpo, arrumado e recebi toda atenção e assistência do Alex em tudo que precisei ou solicitei, assim como da D. Rosa que o auxilia com os hóspedes no local. A localização do mesmo também é muito boa, permitindo acesso fácil e rápido à praia e à Vila em Praia do Forte.

Certamente recomendo e retornarei sempre que possível.

La importancia de los detalles

  • 4 of 5

Estuve alojado una semana. El inmueble es muy confortable y esta ubicado en un condominio muy seguro y tranquilo. Tiene todo lo necesario para un fin de semana pero para estdias mas largas seria bueno atender algunos detalles. El equipamiento de cocina esta bien para pocos dias pero si te gusta cocinar faltaran algunas cosas basicas (tabla para cortar, fuentes y recipientes para ensaladas, colador de pastas, etc). Es fundamentamental proveer de proteccion contra los mosquitos colocando una red en la cama y suministrar aparatos electricos para combatirlos ya que normalmente los turistas no los llevan consigo. Un detalle de cortesia seria que en la casa hubiera algunos paraguas puesto que suelen ser necesarios para quien no tiene vehiculo. En definitiva un excelente lugar que podria mejorarse mucho con poco.

Owner's Response: Hola Gustavo, Fue un gusto recibir vosotros. Gracias por el comentario y por las sugerencia. La próxima vez que vengas a Praia do forte ya verás la tabla de cortar, el recipiente para ensaladas, el colador de pastas, y otros detallitos más. La idea es hacer todo el posible para que los huéspedes tengan una excelente experiencia. Un abrazo y os espero en el próximo viaje. Alex

Muito bom

  • 4 of 5

Gostei muito da hospedagem neste vilage, fica localizado dentro de um bom condomínio com segurança e vaga para o carro. O vilage possui mobília e utensílios que atendem muito bem a um período de férias. Gostei do fato de está perto da vila, já que da pra ir andando pelo próprio condomínio, a negociação com o dono foi tranquila e fui bem recepcionado pela sua secretária na chegada no imóvel. Preço justo e boa relação custo benefício.indiquei depois pró meu chefe que também gostou.

Rates & Availability

Taxes and fees are additional

Additional information about rental rates

Cleaning Fee $11.16
Additional Guest Fee $12.75 per person per night
Pet Fee $9.56

Me consulte sobre o valor do apartamento A (para 2 pessoas), geralmente é mais barato. Caso deseje o village 1 que é melhor decorado, mais equipado e tem um lavabo no andar superior, entre em contato para saber o preço (geralmente um pouco mais caro). Podemos alugar os 3 imóveis juntos para 10 pessoas e dar um desconto.

Está incluso no aluguel as toalhas de banho e roupas de cama, que são trocadas a cada semana. Uma diarista providencia a limpeza na chegada e saída.
