My husband and I stayed at Tivoli, along with two of our friends. We were given adjoining rooms which was great. We used the hotel transportation to and from the airport and had no issues. We were offered drinks upon arrival, and the front desk staff was faster and more responsive than many other hotels in Brazil I've stayed. The groundskeepers do a fantastic job as the greenery, flowers and trees were beautiful. We only used the adult pool, so I can't rate the others, but it was well kept and overlooks the water for a beautiful, relaxing view. We also got to see multiple HUGE iguanas up close since they hang out next to that pool. The restaurant next to the adult pool had amazing food as well. We each had something different (lamb, steak, sea bass, seafood linguine) and all the dishes were excellent. The other restaurant, Goa, is where breakfast and dinner is served buffet style. It has a good variety and we enjoyed trying some Brazilian dishes. My only complaint (which is not the staff's fault) is that cats, birds and monkeys all invade the dining area. They're cute, but I don't exactly enjoy them on my table when I'm eating, which they do because other guests continue to feed them, even though there is a sign posted asking people to NOT feed the wildlife. Make sure to bring bug spray as we got eaten up by mosquitoes and what we think were sand fleas on the beach. Overall, our stay was wonderful and relaxing. We would definitely go again.
