Small oasis in the city centre. Clean,safe & friendly with huge backyard for great breakfast. Lovely music, so it's nice to chill in a hammock. Joel (owner) was great & helpful. Good value for money. The Ecoverde tour structure was fine but the guide (Susy) was disinterested & lazy. It's sad as I paid A LOT of money, more than other tours. Her aim was to get through the tour quickly. The tours are supposed to be good, but ensure Susy isn't your guide. I hear other guides are highly rated
Joel seemed like a nice guy. A staff member, one of his tour operators was dishonest, he tried to scam us by overcharging us by 3 times the price it should have been to taxi to the airport. Luckily we managed to get out of his scam and get to the airport but it was very difficult as we didn't speak Portuguese. Joel wasn't around to help us when it happened. Our door could be forced open so we were never given a key to our room. Kitchen and toilets were disgusting and covered with ants.
