Quite possibly the worst hotel you could imagine. In its defence, the staff are friendly and helpful, the wifi works and the breakfast is good, but that is where the positives end. The bedrooms are hopelessly dated, resembling a bad dream from the 1970s, and the facilities do not even meet basic requirements. Firstly, there is no hot water from... More

This was one of the FIFA-endorsed accommodation for the World Cup so I definitely expected better. Most staff could not speak decent English, so I initially struggled with trying to understand the directions to the stadium the receptionist provided. Later, there was a guy in the counter who spoke excellent English but he said he didn't really work there. Guess... More

Perhaps this was a good hotel when it opened but after 30 years (I'm guessing) it's surely time to upgrade facilities. The air conditioner was useless (blew out hot air) but made enough noise to turn the room into a factory floor. We had to open the window instead so ended up getting eaten alive by mosquitos and other bugs.... More

this is a well positioned hotel on the beach and easy to get in and out of despite the traffic. The internet was pretty good best in the lobby. the breakfast and food was not so great but gave you enough choice to get something. I would go for a higher floor if you can. The AC works well,

The location of this hotel is very good at the beach. The walkways are opposite to the hotel, and beach can be easily accessed. Rooms are a bit outdated but everything works well. Wireless network was very good, breakfast selection with fruit and omelette was very nice, and the pool area is very nice. One of the South America's biggest... More

While the rooms in this hotel are far from luxurious they are certainly adequate and more than compensated for by the good location, great views of the ocean, excellent breakfast and, above all, friendly, helpful and efficient staff. Those who spoke English were a pleasure to deal with and those who couldn't were always quick to find someone who could.... More

Stayed for a couple of nights, hotel is average by Good European standards rooms are ok but the hole place is very dated. The view from the room of Boa Viagem is great and the pool staff and breakfast are all good.

Breakfast good. Good breakfast. View of the Beach Pina cool. Excellent location in the Beach of Good Trip especially if you are working in Recife. Maintenance of sanitary tap deficient. The attendance at the reception needs further training to the tourist. Occurs which is a profile for hotel workers and events .... To get some refreshments and meals next to... More

Stay away from this hotel. Lobby and elevators with strong moulding smell. Dark hallways. Poorly maintained rooms with extremely tiny bathrooms with electric shower and no hot water on the sink. But the worst is still to came...bedbugs! It is totally unacceptable and disrespectful to a guest to be in contact with such neglect of hygiene. Breakfast, as pointed out... More
