The closest village "Praia do Forte" stays about 10 minutes by taxi. Due to the location, you can find everything on the spot: different restaurants, kids' playgrounds including pool slides, golf course, there...

Great resort with amazing infrastructure. Very nice pools. Excellent resort for family especially with small kids. Food is ok. Drinks are great. Try to stay in the building number 6 for best location in the resort. Services are fine but not great.
