Looking out over a beautiful beach, this hotel is close to warm waters, tasty seafood, and exclusive nightclubs. Futuro Beach is considered to be the best in the city, with a lengthy stretch of pristine sands and clean sea waters. A favorite destination for swimmers and sunbathers, this 5-mile stretch of beach is also frequented by surfers as its lack of reefs makes for consistent sets of waves. Windsurfing is also popular.
Dozens of resorts and restaurants are located here. Some have private water parks, spas, salons, and lively nighttime entertainment. Chico do Caranguejo is a 5-minute walk south of the hotel. This complex has a private pool, plenty of seating, and direct access to the beach.
Grand crab feasts are held weekly, and live music and dancing can be enjoyed each weekend. A mile north is the even larger Croco Beach, with a restaurant, bar, cafe, water park, VIP lounge, spa, and salon. Taxis and shuttles are the best way to travel from here to the city's other beaches and attractions.
Food & Beverage
A complimentary breakfast buffet of regional sweet breads, fresh tropical fruits, traditional hot dishes, brewed coffee, and much more is served each morning in the Dunas dining area. Dunas is the hotel's main restaurant, and prepares typical Brazilian dishes and Portuguese specialties for lunch and dinner.
An impressive selection of high-quality wines and exotic cocktails can be sampled at the Marés lobby bar. The Praia restaurant & bar has a menu of snacks, sandwiches, cold beverages and tangy drinks.
Guests can sip a hot espresso while surfing the web in the lobby's small café, or relax with an appetizer and a drink at the Soul & Blues Bar. Room service can be ordered through the front desk on a 24-hour basis.
