Carioca Inn is definitely worth recommending! The hosts are very helpful with any queries and willing to assist in any way possible. The rooms are very nice and tidy with plenty of space. The bathrooms are spacious with a large shower. The rooms also have private access to the lagoon and the beach transfers pic you up right in front of Carioca Inn. This was a holiday I'll never forget!
