Um simples requintado
Rancho do Peixe é um local bem agradável, ótimo para quem gosta de Kite surf e contato com a natureza. Os funcionários são muito atenciosos e surpreendem com alguns mimos. Para quem quer curtir a praia, essa época de muitos ventos não é muito favorável.

Excelente, uma experiência!
Local excelente, com ótima estrutura porem acho importante ressaltar e acredito que isso deveria ficar mais evidente, devido aos ventos no local o uso da praia para banho fica muito difícil, quase impossibilitado devido a vir muita areia e mesmo sendo um lugar super bonito e tratar-se de uma experiência real, banheiro e area de banho são realmente mais rusticos, o q me causou estranheza!

8/10 Very Good

Tudo muito lindo, atendimento excelente, restaurante e spa maravilhoso. Porém não é o tipo de instalação que eu voltaria com criança pequena. O quarto fica totalmente claro antes das 6 da manhã, nao existe isolamento acústico nem contra insetos, o “vento” não dá conta de deixar o ambiente agradável, mesmo o bangalô sendo de frente pro mar, a tarde era muito calor. Havia uma obra ao lado do hotel com muito barulho desde cedo, sei que não é culpa do hotel mas mesmo no final de semana começavam muito cedo as marteladas. Não conseguimos descansar como gostaríamos.
