I just have to be honest. The people are amazing. The location is great. However, there is literally no parking. No extras like ( shampoo, conditioner, bars of soap, etc.) If you like a HARD mattress...jail style, this might be for you. We were in room 27 and asked to be moved because the damn toilet was so close to the bathroom door you couldn't close it without being completely inside the bathroom. There was no view from the balcony..it was a view of the alley way. We asked to be moved. Across he hall was all they had, Room 24 is slightly better with a partial view of the water over looking other properties. The location is great for a day because there is a small tide pool on the rocks you can enjoy and a restaurant (very pricey) to eat at near the natural pool. It is not safe for kids in my opinion but beautiful. If you want to stay in this area try this other hotel about 2 miles down the road called Apart-hotel Barracuda, it is 3 stars and walking distance from shops, food, and right on the black sandy beaches. Unfortunately, the rooms at Arcanjo have paper thin walls. You can hear the neighbor flush the toilet, shower, flush and have sex. The neighbors nearby have dogs... not one dog, but multiple large dogs that bark ALL night long, passed 3am and it echoes very loud. there is one plug in the bathroom, not convenient at all and we did not utilize breakfast which was minimal at best. There was a wedding party at the restaurant nearby 'Ondas do Mar' and they took up EVERY parking space including ALL the hotel parking. It was a nightmare to wait for them to leave to grab a spot. While I enjoyed the service of this hotel it was outweighed by the negatives and I would choose to stay elsewhere. This is a No go again for me. Many other places to choose from.
