I stayed here with my boyfriend for a week in July. Not a bad word to say about it. Perfect location just up the hill from the old town. We were able to walk everywhere. For the price you obviously don't expect anything fancy but The hotel itself was clean and the staff very helpful. My boyfriend left his wallet... More

We stayed here 8 nights in July. Although the hotel is in need of an update I will say that it is clean and good value. Has a great location, and an excellent staff. The bar/outdoor are was a great place to have a drink and Hang out. Tiago is an excellent bartender and made the best Caipirinha's. Thank you... More

We had a 6 night stay here in July 2015, we enjoyed it very much. Our room was on 3rd floor looking over the old square, it was clean with a great view. Only down fall was a tiny balcony but not to worry as along the corridor was a great roof top area. Breakfast is also basic, hams, bread... More

Breakfast one of the poorest we have had with no variation at all and very poor quality items. If you are... More

Stayed at Vila Recife, after reading mixed reviews I decided to go with a open mind, I must admit it is a lovely little hotel, ample sized pool ( not Olympic spec) would defiantly visit again, the only down fall I would say is that the breakfast is as continental as they come, ham, cheese and bread

Not long back from an 8 night stay in Vila Recife. My girlfriend & I were on the 4th floor overlooking the pool (if you can call it that) The seagulls seen more of the pool than me and the Mrs did to be fair. The pool area was filthy and there was around 25 sunbeds in total. All of... More

My wife and I have just come back from a week at this hotel. Here are a few thoughts: Room - decor is fairly basic, and perhaps a little tired. However the room was a decent size, air con comes as standard (a MASSIVE bonus in 40 degree heat). There was also a TV, small fridge and some crockery/cutlery. We... More

Hotel was a bit basic, extremely clean and had a fantastic location. Our room had lovely views of the pool, town and the sea. The rooms are cleaned daily and the towels changed every two days.The balcony only seated one person but not all rooms have balconies or good views. We had a fridge, kettle, television and travel adapter all... More

I've stayed here two years in a row solely based on it's convenience to the Old Town and the beach. It's cheap and cheerful and I've always found the accommodation basic but very satisfactory. The rooms are cleaned daily. The breakfast provided is simple too and fine if you don't want to wander to find somewhere else. If you want... More
