“Great Ibis”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

You usually know what to expect from an Ibis hotel. This one is no different! It is clean and comfortable. Wifi should be improved. But what is best in the hotel is the staff: they are super mega friendly! It is a bit isolated but Cabo Branco beach is very good!

The rooms don’t have safe and the bathroom stinks. Internet is good and free and the beach is across the road. Ibis Joao Pessoa is located in Cabo Branco which is a nice residential area, there are some good restaurants in a walking distance, however if you want to go to Tambau or Manaira where the banks, bars and supermarkets are located you gonna need a taxi or walk around 15-20 minutes.

Clean, nothing fancy, the room is small but has all the basics. WiFi is poor. Bathroom is small with no amenities. Location is good, at the south end of Cabo Branco beach. Front desk staff is very friendly and eager to assist. We did not have breakfast, which is not included, but at a brief glance the offerings were not enticing. We have stayed in other hotels on Cabo Branco, and feel this was the best value for the price.

Room Tip: Ask for a room toward the front of the hotel for a view of the beach.

I always know what I gonna find staying in a Ibis Hotel. The room was cleaned, the bathroom was cleaned and the towels ok. But the staff was wonderful, specially the front desk guy (Ian). I just stayed there for 2 days, but nothing to complain about.

Unfortunately because Ibis is known for being a bit cheaper generally than other hotels and people know what they get with it, like a Macdonalds hamburger, they give it more business, than they deserve. They then raise their prices, and yet their standards are generally very basic. In a relatively unknown town like Joao Pesoa, people book with Ibis because they feel safe as they they know the name. In reality, this hotel was way overpriced for what you were actually getting. The rooms were small and old and I felt the amount I was paying was based on the Ibis reputation in big cities,where they represent a cheaper alternative. In a small town like this, they really serve no use except maki g new comers to the town feel safe and feel they are paying for something they now. I generally found ibis a glorified youth hostel. And will only use them if other hotels in a big city like Rio are too expensive. The ibis in Joao Pessoa did not even meet the criterion of a usual ibis, being out of the way and dingy and claustrophobic. How it was at number one on trip advisor last year shocked me. I realised once there, that he other hotels in Joao Pessoa were unknown. I moved to Intercity after a couple of days and was much happier. Intercity was to even on trip advisor then. I found it by walking around. I should have written a review then but was too lazy. Now intercity is rated higher than ibis as it should be. I still think the ibis in this town is rated far too highly on trip advisor. Bottom line is people feel safe with what they know, even if it is poor quality.
