    The location is the only plus for this place.

    The building is old and is in an urgent need of renovation. The breaksfast is poor and clearly needs improvement. Also the music in the swimming pool was really loud and not adequate with the hotel standart.

    Good option for families, but overpriced for the standard.

    Rooms where not maintained well, mold in the shower and bathroom. Furniture is older than me.

    Good location but the hotel needs lots of TLC.

    Where should I start. The hotel was built in the 70s and looked as if it has never been maintained. Bed was sort of ok. Room was not welcoming. Bathroom has urine smell and even after I had spoken to reception nothing was done about it, my friend room didn’t smell. Breakfast area was dirty and breakfast was very basic. Sauna was disgusting and the man who looked after the beach was more interested in chatting than assisting guests. The beach was really nice though.
    The swimming pool area is good. However the pool was dirty and lack of sun beds.

    Landmark, lovely, safe and a happy stay....all travellers Welcome

    Had ant problems in winter, had to spray with ant killer each night. Some older rooms had faulty A/C Standard rooms had no window to see outside
    Location is everything and the Tropical Tambau is in the right place for all you could need, a large interior pool (not covered but walls keep out the wind and sand) and a nice restaurent, outside right in front of the hotel is a food court with my wifes favorites...tapioca and bbq foods, brazil foods and other world cuisine. And if this not to your liking then about 5 mins to the left is a Bob’s or 10 mins to the right to a McDonalds. Or there are other restaurents too. In the day you can get direct private access to the beach and a guarded secure car park right beside the hotel. The Tropical Tambau is a landmark hotel

    Front service desk did not pay adequate attention to me at check in
    I was to have a beachfront room for my reservation. Got to hotel for me to sub standard room. I had to pay for upgrade for beachfront, which was already paid for. I did add another guess is happy to pay for it. I feel you Took advantage of me

    The hotel (inside and outside) looks like from 80-90`s - very old and needs full renovation. The rooms are small and very poorly equipped. The bathroom was extremely small with fungus on the walls. Lack of chairs in the balcony. A lot of insects inside the room including ants, small fly and mosquitoes. The english speaking staff was not available in the reception for the whole time. The food was disgusting, we had always stomach ache after the breakfast served in the ugly hotel restaurant, which was dirty, without air-condition and full of birds sitting on the food... The price was definitely too high for the standard of the hotel. In my opinion the hotel should have 2-3 stars, at most.
    Nice garden, pool and ocean view. Good location with proximity to various bars and restaurants.

    Two things that makes this hotel interesting: 1) the architecture, a ring form and it is hotel without stairs... 2) You live literally on the beach where the water line touches the hotel at high-tide. The only hotel in Brasil where you can have this. All the beaches ( i.e. coast line) from the waterline and 200 meters upwars is owned by the Brazilian Marine...this is an exception (-:

    Good location, good pool and nothing more

    The overall state of the hotel which seams to have stopped at the 80's. The breakfast is awful: a lot of things but none o them really good. The food served at the pool is really disgusting!
    The location, near the beach and some city attractions, and the beautiful pool.

    Unique architectural experience by the seashore!

    The breakfast could have more well made typical and original food. It needs improvement. The restaurant is nice and the menu interesting. Both have got potential ....
    The hotel should explore its architectural value a bit more. The project of Sergio Bernardes is unique. The room is light. Sleeping by the sound of seawaves is a life dream. The structure is really confortable. Swimmimg pool, sauna and a massage clinic. I used it as a spa for two days. Not to mention the location, a neighborhood with very good restaurants. The staff was very efficient.

    Parts of bathroom need to be remodeled. The superior room (I choose) had only a view of the central garden. No beach view.
    The staff was very friendly. The spa is a good service . The wonderful location. The modern architecture is outstanding.
