We had such a blessed stay at Rio dos Elefantes. Our accommodation was excellent and the hospitality was beyond words. The kitchen staff went above and beyond what was expected of them and saw to our children’s needs with no fuss. The scenery and view of animals was memorable and we look forward to making it back there soon.
