Stayed for only one night but overall everything went smoothly. They have a nice pool and a honest gym. The room is very comfy as well. All the staff is friendly and willing to help at any time. The restaurant is a little over priced but the quality of the food is good. Anyway, I recommend it !

We stayed a couple of nights at this hotel on our way back from Fernando de Noronha. We were given a room at Tower 2 which is a brand new structure built especially to host guests of the WC2014. From the second we arrived at the hotel, the concierge and the hotel staff were available and offered us all of... More

A great location not far from the airport. We stayed at the Mar Hotel as we wanted to see Recife. As it was out engagement, the staff upgraded us to one their suites. They had a very nice pool, and a small but adequate gym. The setting is very nice. Lovely hotel.

I don't recommend this hotel. On our check-in we were updated to the last floor (and we were pleased), but the rooms were very disappointing. There is no balcony, and the view is just the garden outside the window and a bit of the city. The room has lots of cabinets but it's very plain with very bad finishing. The... More

Perhaps except for the nice pool, good conference rooms for large seminars, and short distance from the airport I would not recommend to stay here. Internet is poor, no ocean view for ocean view price, and 4 blocks from Beira Mar (when most other hotels are over that road) do not make it an ideal choice. In my case the... More

Like quite a few Brazilian 3-4 star hotels, this one looks like it hasn't seen a lick of paint since the 70s. Rooms are in poor condition, Internet works only intermittently and breakfast was lousy. No view of the sea, just concrete blocks, and the area seems a bit iffy at night. Service is good, which is so often the... More

A. Great hotel located near the airport, beach and restaurants. They are expanding and have a 5 story garage and adding a new wing. Apartments are well appointed and comfortable. Beautiful pool and lobby. Great restaurants and bars also.

This is a good hotel, with polite staff, 24-hour room service, a swimming pool available until 10pm, a bar, a good restaurant, a cafe and so on. But the room I stayed in wasn't very spacious, considering we were a couple. There was one chair, one small table, and enough room for one person's luggage. The beers available in the... More

Location is not as good as the hotels right on the beach but 10 mins crossing a couple of busy roads will get you to the sea on foot. At the moment there is a lot of building on the side facing the sea (although you can't see it) so I suppose any rooms like mine with even numbers would... More

I spent one night before the flight back and I think it was nice and comfortable, it is about six blocks from the beach, unfortunately the buildings at right and front were in construction and the view was not very nice.
