I spend almost 1 week last November for business reasons. Old fashion hotel; old furniture, bad mattress and musty smell. Room could be cleaner. Good things: very good breakfast and good services, but I don't recommend.

Stayed in a so called suite. The good things: View on the beach. Location on the Boa Viagem beach. Good breakfast buffet. The bad things: Sparsely furnished with old worn out furniture. completely lack of style and warmth. Not enough light if you want to work. Noisy doors. Air conditioning is so loud that you have to switch it of... More

Great location directly opposite the beech with sea views. The room I stayed in was huge with plenty of room for more than two adults even though it was a double room. Breakfast was great and you could eat out on the terrace which overlooked the sea.

Everything was perfect, the hotel is very quiet, the wiew of Boa Viagem Beach it's amazing. The service was good and the breakfast the best. The check out could be quickly, but person who attended me was very kind and friendly.

Very disappointing stay. Security is awful and bags are stored in a public corridor with guest and the general public allowed full access. Recife is not exactly a safe destination at the best of times nor is the area around the Hotel (away from the beach). Hygiene was also poor. The front desk staff were rude and it is not... More

From my last stay to this one I got a remodeled room that looks nicer then the older design, but still for the price charged they need to improve a lot. Despite the reception main hall that gives you an impression that is an expensive hotel, when you get your room you see that is it more for an average... More

By American standards, some would consider this a budget hotel, but it's one of the nicer ones in the area. The hotel seems oriented toward beach vacationers rather than business travelers. For example the WiFi is very slow and only one person can use the connection at a time. My wife and I both needed to get some work done,... More

It's located in front of the beach but doesn't have much infrastructure and the few that exist are expensive for what is offered. The hotel is old and needs a remodeling for the XXI century, especially they need to upgrade the beds and furniture. The Wifi is worthless it's hard to get a signal and is pretty slow. The breakfast... More

WHAT TO EXPECT This is a nice standard hotel. Don't expect too much and you'll be fine. So it's not fancy. It's old-fashioned, with some decoration details that makes you feel in the 80s. It's going through a total refurbishing. PROs Rooms are big and at least most of them have some sea view. Really comfortable. Nice wood prints in... More
