Stayed in Dec 2013 and it was a really bad experience. There is no parking for taxis available, when I was there just one elevator was working and internet worked just the first night. There is no service, the frigobar was empty and if you need something you need to call room service until 10 pm or bring it from... More

The best feature of this hotel is its location across the street from the ocean. The accommodations are much to be desired. The rooms smell of mildew. The hotel hallway looks like a poorly maintained dormitory rather than a hotel. The hotel is in need of painting, cleaning and replacing windows and antiquated elevators. When I stayed at the hotel... More

What a pity. A wonderful location, a very nice staff, a clean towels and linned, reasonably clean room and bathroom. But some refurbishing is badly needed- room walls should have been painted some years ago, the air conditioning system IS noisy (as noticed in other reviews) and the common areas of the hotel look much worse kept than the rooms....

The hotel is located across the street from the beach and the view from my room was beautiful. The room itself was musty (there were black spots on the floor by the windows) and the twin beds were very uncomfortable. The draperies didn't close properly so light from the street streamed in. Breakfast was included, but not a lot of... More

I stayed here with two friends for three days while working with mangrove crabs. Even though I arrived way after midnight, the check-in was simple, and clerk was helpful and sent up warm towels and sheets for the third bed. Although crowded, the room was adequate with a good strong shower located in a reasonable space. I enjoyed the front... More

Great location shame about the hotel. Dated and run down there are many others in the area that are much nicer. Bit far from towm but good bus service and taxis are reasonable and don't seem to take you ona world tour in Recife....

Very bad room like a corridor with 3 single beds; it looked like a bad holliday camp from the 70s. Very noisy as the windows did not close properly and the door neither. In addition the room was close to the elevator and the bell was ringing every time it stopped. We move to another hotel later which was the... More

I wasn't enamored of the place, for sure. Others have mentioned a musty, moldy smell, and that was the case with us, as well. There were mildewy spots on the lampshade in the room. Our room was on the top floor, all the way in the back, which meant we had 2 windows. One faced the building next door, and... More

The room where we stayed was sweltering. The humidity from the sea leaves a very unpleasant smell in the room and in the corner, behind the curtain, the wall was completely covered with mold. On the first day, we found a lot of hair in the bathroom. We tend to focus on location when traveling. However, in this case, despite... More

We reserved this hotel due to the good reviews and somewhat decent pictures, but mostly because of the location. When we got to the hotel at 3 am it took them more than half an hour to get us to your room and when we got there......First of all it looks as if the construction didn´t finish, bad paint job,...
