This hotel is not very sofisticated but adequate and clean. Good breakfast and just in front the beach with good view to the ocean. The issue is that the beach just in front the hotel is too narrow and not good for swimming. Side walk ok for jogging.

More or less 12 years old, fir sure requires continuous maintenace due proximity to sea, but average is good. Do not expect luxurious for this price. Family owned with small pool, but who cares with the sea in front. Rooms are not so big and bathrooms should be bigger. Surprisely the dinner on restaurant was amazing - ask fish

Look at the nice photos then imagine them again in states of disrepair. 1/ WiFi is terrible. You must go to the lobby to get a good signal and even then forget about using Skype :( 2/ Games room in... More

Just across the street from the beach and in a great location in the city, the Hardman offers good value for money. The room I stayed in was clean and comfortable, and had even a mini-kitchen. The shower and AC unit worked perfectly. The staff was very attentive. Breakfast was good with a good variety of fruits, breads and pastries.... More

Just in front of the beach, hotel offers a small pool with bar service. The breakfast is ok. Large rooms and beds, safebox, clean towels and linens, although bathroom furniture needs some repairs. Close to several restaurants and a small shopping center, offers a beautiful view of the beach. You can safely walk around in the evening, It´s a option... More

It´s located in front of the Beach, in a central location. The rooms are comfortable and has free WiFi. And breakfast is just fabulous!!!!! The relation Quality/Price is very good, think 95% of the people won´t need a more expensive hotel to have a good stay in João Pessoa.
