The rooms on the beach side, where I stayed, are good and silent. Street side suppose not be seen very busy street. The coffee is good too and variety of breads. Only 3 types of juices. Good internet link. Room cleaning is also good and good bed. The elevators were in service which made it somewhat slow shift to the... More

This hotel exceeded all our expectations. Location is excellent at the beach. Wireless network (free) worked very well all the time. We had a wonderful view from our 15th floor balcony. The room itself was very nice, and we always had lots of warm water in the shower. The pool area (which we never used) looks very nice, and the... More

I spent almost a week at this hotel during a recent trip to Recife to see friends and family during the World Cup. I found this hotel to be charming and the staff to be absolutely amazing. My room was not right over the beach, but I could still look out over the beach at an angle. I was able... More

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
