Love the breakfast selection and the view from our room was great. Hotel staff was friendly and prompt. We stayed three nights and would recommend to anyone who enjoys a laid back atmosphere in Recife.

The hotel is very outdated. Pictures on the website doesn't look like the actual rooms. Walls are so thin and very noisy. You can hear the TV from the other room. The fridge in the room is so noisy that we had to unplug it so we can sleep. What mostly makes me upset is the fact that no body managed times no one would take our call when we tried to orde room service, the phone would just ring and ring. My husband went down to the front desk to find them understaffed. When he made the comment that room service doesn't answer they said "We know."

Cannot say much except by the fact that I arrived by 2am and my name wasn't at the reservation list, but the staff managed to get me a room after I showed my voucher. They double charged me but they fixed the mistake in a very fast and gentle manner. Although the place looks new, the room had an old look and feel but it was clean without any bad smelling typical of old places. There were no power outlets nearby the beds what's something very inconvenient for me. I didn't had a chance to experience the shower neither the hotel amenities. Breakfast was pretty decent, many and good options.

We spent one night in this hotel while on a business trip. Location is gorgeous, across the street from the beach, not for the agoraphobic if you have a high floor overlooking beach. Note: beach is for walking or possibly wading at low tide. Swimming and going into the water at high tide is strongly discouraged because of sharks. Bed was comfortable but bathroom smelled from floor drain and shower drain was extremely slow. Only a few blocks from very large shopping area and airport is only minutes away.

Good hotel if you are on transit and don't want to stay at the airport. Very close to the airport and the beach. Kind personal, the downside is that they don't have a money change service. So it's better if you have some Reais in the bag. The breakfast is good with an excellent view of Boa Viagem beach.

Very good hotel located close from everything. Great viewa towards the ocean. Very clean rooms. Very friendly staff always available. Good housekeeping. Good buffer during breakfast. I did not like tje gym which was very small dirty and without aircondition.

The hotel needs a major upgrade. Looks like it was completed in the 1970s. Pool is the gym has 2 treadmills. Rooms are also super dated, so much so that there is rust on some of the hinges. Only upside is that the rooms are relatively large.

my room was very big and clear,the bathroom was very good,the bad very confortable and many places to put the stuff.the localization was perfect:in front of the sea. the breakfast was diverse and very good.

I've been at the hotel this weekend for the Aerosmith gig. Pros: Rooms are all refurbished, the hotel is located in front of the beach, minutes away from airport, good breakfast and clean and nice pool. Cons: Mattress was old and I had tuff nights trying to sleep, restaurant only opens till 11 pm and I would give a 8 note from 1 to 10 for the service.

It's a relatively cheap hotel, very well located, in front of the Boa Viagem beach. The hotel itself do not have many attractions, but is ok for a stay. One good issue is the food- surprisingly good! Would be back for a short stay again.
