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.

My husband took me to Mar Hall for a surprise 2 night break in June 2013. I loved the hotel, the setting was gorgeous, the main building was grand yet welcoming and chilled out at the same time.

Stayed there for 10 days. The room and bathroom are clean and big, the pool and breakfast are excellent (several options of fruits, cakes, bread and even tapioca). Good restaurants in walking distance. Not so close to the beach though.

Location in the business area, relatively close to the beach, nor to far from the airport. The room with style, colorful. The coffe-shop and break-fast and luch menu just perfect. Great variety of epetizers, main courses, fruits, and other desserts. Fresh atmosphere. Lobby is wide, but parking area is limited. Receptionsits hospitality need to be improved.
