Ótima escolha em Santa Maria.
Passamos dias muito bons no Hotel Dunas de Sal. Ficamos em uma suite junior muito espaçosa e a atenção de todos os funcionários merece destaque. Foream gentis e prestativos, nos ajudaram imenso com problemas que tivemos que resolver durante a estadia.

Foi uma experiência muito agradável hospedar nesse hotel. Os funcionários são muito educados, atenciosos e solícitos. Agradeço demais o atendimento diferenciado que nos deram. O café da manhã era muito gostoso. Tudo novinho, alguns itens preparados na hora mesmo, ao gosto do cliente. A área de lazer era impecável. Uma piscina ótima para prática de natação ou mesmo para recreação. As redes no jardim são uma ótima oportunidade para um descanso ao ar livre. O hotel fica próximo da praia, próximo do cassino, e tb muito próximo da parte comercial/turística de Sal. Deu pra fazer tudo andando poucos metros. O quarto muito limpo, a internet excelente. Consegui até mesmo assistir um jogo de futebol via internet em HD. E o meu Cruzeiro ganhou!!!! Quando eu retornar a Sal, com certeza esse será o meu hotel!

Trevligt hotell
Längre in till Santa Maria än vi trodde. Hjälpsam och trevlig personal! Rent o fräscht. Poolbarens läge var lite blåsigt och kallt.
