This hotel is right next to the beach which is great. However one can't swim really, this beach next to the hotel and the beach along Boa Viagem is infested by bull sharks and it's a breeding colony for the sharks. Therefore, it's not advised for anyone to swim in it. Having said that, it's lovely to enjoy the lounges... More

So, I decided to book this hotel for my world cup stay in Recife. First a word of caution. Even though the hotel is advertised as Dorisol Grand "Recife" Hotel, it is not really in Recife, but in a town called Jaboatao Dos Guararupes which is south of Recife. Still a nice neighborhood, but a bit far from Boa Viagem... More

We arrived from Natal to find a hotel where almost everything didn't work. The balcony door wouldn't lock, the a/c control was missing, the key to the safe was not given to us when we checked in. The wi fi was as slow as dial up in the 1990's, in fact it didn't work most of the time. The one... More

This hotel could be a nice 70s vintage but instead is just old and dirty. The service is appalling: it took me over 15mins to check-in, why exactly I don't know but they would just fidget behind the reception desk and not give me a room. I asked for an iron over the phone and waited for 30mins in vain,... More

I stayed on the 14th floor for 4 nights in August 2013. Good points: The bed was big (king size) and comfortable. The TV was a bit old, but worked, and there is cable. Having central A/C that you can control was nice. There is a woman who makes fresh omeletes and tapioca (really good) just for you for breakfast.... More

The hotel is right on the beach. The rooms on that side have wonderfull views. At night i slept with the windows open to listen to the surf. Many of the staff spoke english, and were attentive to my questions. Recife is a beautiful town with lots to do and lots of history. Finding romantic restaurants was easy.

This place sells itself by saying it is in Recife which is a big lie. It is not in Recife but in a suburb 7km out called Jaboatao. It is expensive for what you get. Rooms are not clean, the bathtub was not clean, the rooms at the side are noisy, the airco is noisy. For this price you will... More

I stayed at this hotel for few nights. The only thing i enjoyed here is the view from this hotel to the beach, then no more. I wish i had not booked it online because the room was so terrible. In my room, the safe had no door on it; the toilet seat made of foam; the water in my... More

The hotel is ok, rooms could REALLY use remodeling. No beach access and not in a great location to walk to any near by, or walk anywhere besides maybe the store across the street, not quite the safest area. Nice pool though, and restaurant is good. Brush up on your Portuguese thought, very few employees here speak English. I suggest... More
