Stayed here for 2 days in Jan 2016 on business & the most important and best part of this hotel is the location. Right at the beach, facing the mighty atlantic !! That said, morning walks were fun and taking a dip in the beach never required any planning. Food served was top notch and delicious in every way to...

Though I have read some reviews that say the rooms are not good, I would disagree. Though they are not new, they are clean and comfortable. My "single" room had a kind-sized bed and comfortable pillows, and a very spacious bathroom with a good shower. The breakfast was good and the wifi worked well. The location can't be beat. It...

This hotel is very well located just in front of Boa Viagem beach in a stretch very good for swimming and walking on the sand. It is very close to a little nice square with a picturesque church, a restaurant bars and a fair where they sell local art crafts. The lobby is large and fresh, friendly people. Good swimming...

Rooms clean and spacious but in need of facelift. Reception staff helpful and porters very efficient. Wait staff in restaurant Ok for buffet but clueless for table service. Lower floors noisy on beach side (road) and could be sorted with modern windows that would not leak during rain.

In terms of location, Vila Rica hotel is great. We had a room overlooking the beach, which was spacious albeit slightly dated. The hotel is of a moderate standard, however I would not recommend eating in the restaurant for an evening meal. Both my starter and main courses were cold and I only had one mouthful of my main course...

I stayed at this hotel during two days for a training in Situational Leadership by Ken Blanchard Co., so I can only evaluate the conference room, meeting hall and restaurant. To support a group of 30 people, they provided a room with a nice acoustics and equiped with a projector, nice chairs, flip charts and everything necessary for a successful...

This is a simple hotel, the room is basic and clean the breakfast area is small and crowded and by Brazilian standards it was modest. I went for work and for a 2 nights only - would never stay there on vacation mainly because its way overpriced for what it offers.

Very close to the airport and on one of Brazil's most famous beaches, Boa Viagem. Make no mistake Recife is one gritty, snarling city, and one of the country's biggest. Also one of i'ts most dangerous - saying that we witnessed nothing to suggest this.There is gridlocked traffic, construction on every corner, rubbish strewn everywhere (like in the rest of...
