Onda Mar says it is 4 stars, but don't belevieve it. It is 2 stars or 3 minus.
It is a big building with a good structure, but very, very dirty.
Floors haven't seen water for months I believe. It is simply unbelievable how dirty the elevators are. The carpets are so dirty that you hardly see the carpets.
Rooms are are very badly cleaned. It seems the maid spends about 3 minutes to do all the work...
The windows in the rooms and other areas haven't been washed for years, for sure.
The restaurant floor is always dirty.
Air-con was very noisy and did not work well. TV did not work well. The bed is uncomfortable, sheets are old, towels are old.
Do you want know what I think? Onda Mar Hotel is onde of those hotels that could be easily much better and acceptable, but hasn't received maintenance and nowadays doesn't receive minimum and simple cares, like cleaning.
Front desk staff is slow and not very professional.
Breakfast is surprisingly nice and tasty, but how can you trust it and be tranquil is the hotel is so dirty?
Location is very good (2 blocks from a nice area on the beach) and near the nicest mall in Recife, as well as good restaurants.
Conclusion: only stay at Onda Mar if you get a really low rate. I paid 114 reais for two persons (48 reais), which is cheap for the area. I should have imagined the risk. For 50% more, you can stay in much better hotels in the same area.
