Start it off with saying this hotel has a very ugly facade on one Brasils most beautiful beaches, but I can live that, it was the phone that didn't work, the toilet that leaked out onto the restroom floor, the smell of old linoleum, the lumpy pillows, the broken window latches, the filthy parking area, no valet to bring up...

Travelling with a 2 years old, husband and my in laws. The hotel gave the biggest room to my in laws and left us in the smallest one. Very old hotel. They stopped in the 90`s. Doesn't worth the value they charge just to be in front of the sea. One lady that works at front desk should think again... More

My wife and i came to cabo frio for a relaxing few mid week days on vacation. We selected the Malibu Palace hotel based on its closeness to the beach and the enthusiastic "muito linda" recommendation of some locals... Well, those locals must've been pad off--or high on crack--because the place is a dump. It may have been great 20... More
