“Good location - get a renovated room”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2012

My wife and I went for a two week vacation to Brazil along with our daughter and her husband. Our daughter was born in Recife, so this was an opportunity for her to show her husband where she had lived the first eight years of her life!
The hotel location is great along the Recife coastline. It is also within reasonable distance of the airport. We had to change rooms because of a defective a/c unit, but when we got a recently renovated room it was a great improvement. The kitchenette in one of our rooms was very practical for "family" use".The breakfast served was good, the pool area acceptable and the price we got was within the service and ammenities offered. We stayed at this hotel for the first three nights of our two week vacation in that general area of Brazil, and we decided to use the hotel again for the last night in Brazil because of the proximity of the airport and an acceptable level of service.

Room Tip: Get a "renovated" room!

Room 1808 - especially the bathroom - was not clean enough. Toilet would not flush and vault was broken. Food was good but had an unfrozen aspect.

Customer service could certainly improve... I made a reservation through goldentulip.com but the hostess could not find it in the computer. At the end, he gave me a curious advice: "You should not trust these websites... be sure you always call the front desk before going to the hotel. You are lucky that we still have rooms, otherwise you'd not have a place to stay"

Though not near the main downtown, the beach front location was very nice. I was told that the entire Recife beach is a shark warning area. There are also signs on the beach. Right in front of this hotel, however, is a small, natural rock outcropping such that when the tide is out a natural protected area is formed for swimming.

The hotel itself has been very neglected. It took us five rooms before we found an acceptable one (main door to room would not lock; bathroom door would not close fully; due to wind coming from sea, the poor seals on sliding door made a very loud howling sound; air conditioner did not work).

On top of that, we did not get the rate advertised online at lastminute.com. Lastminute.com quoted the rate in our currency (USD). The hotel, of course, charges in Brazilian Reals; however, the exchange rate they provided was so bad, that the room ended up costing much more.

I would not recommend this hotel.

Stayed August 2007
