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

I stayed only one night in this hotel (but 3 other nights in the same area). The room was big, good view to the ocean (12th floor), room was clean. I could do the check in and check out very quickly. The staff wasn't particularly pleasant but at least efficient. The breafast was ok, nothing exceptional but still decent. The... More

Other reviews here mainly align with our recent experience. The place is in pretty good shape and the rooms are not glamorous but they are clean and functional. I did see one bug in the bathroom late one evening but that's all. The views of the ocean from our room were amazing but the ocean is inaccessible - there is... More

I liked Dorisol. The hotel was built during the 80’s and need a refurbishment? Yes, agree, mainly on the bathroom (the room is Ok in my opinion). Also negative is the ocean in front if you really want easy and direct access to a beach, because due to the global warming, the beach disappeared and a breakwater had to be... More
