I'm sitting here at the hotel almost crying. The hotel is ok (typical Brazilian 5 stars, nothing special, most 70's buildings, but ok). The food is ok. Typical Brazilian style: buffet or coma por quilo. The internet comes and goes... but that's ok.
But what really drives me to write this review is the beach. It is unbelievable how dirty the beach is. Full of plastic straws, beer tops, plastic bags and plastic bottles, let alone cigarette filters. Those things go directly to the sea animals! Aren't we trying to leave a better place for our children? Where did all the climate change awareness speeches go? As you can see in the pictures, this is simply unbelievable! I stayed almost an hour cleaning the beach that is full of waste bins!
Close the hotel if you cannot maintain a clean and environmentally friendly place. Where are the authorities? Am I the only one guest shocked?
I'm in room 1014 until tomorrow 10/11/2016
