Pass on it if you can.

I stayed for 2 weeks on a business trip - it was where my client authorized stay for reimbursment. Price was cheap. Close to beach, which is nice. Pretty beach, but no one (not even locals) go in the water because of the high threat of shark attack, historically, except for very low tides when the waves don't make it over the reef. Walking distance to a very nice shopping mall. Decent food - some is great, some a little blah, but overall not bad. I had the same two waiters every night that were pretty good. Room service is terrible. No towels or blankets in the room, only sheets on the bed, I had to ask [and wait] for them. No iron/ironing board. I had to ask for new rolls of toilet paper when needed. Not once in 2 weeks were the hardwood floors swept. Door was busted off of the room safe, which as an immediate indicator of what my stay would be like. Never felt comfortable leaving valuables in my room. The surrounding area off of the beach is pretty dirty and is crawling with prostitutes, pimps, sex shops, abandoned buildings, and other unsavory characters in the evening. Didn't feel safe sometimes, wouldn't want to take my family there. If you don't need to stay IN the city, you are better off at the Sheraton Hotel south of the city - prettier beaches, much nicer facility, no crowds. I imagine that the price difference will be significant though.

Great location

First of all, this hotel's customer service is very good. They are courteous and always willing to help. Having said that, they could have gone an extra mile by solving my internet issue. During my two night stay, I had no internet. They never provided me with a solution - something I would have immensely appreciated as I needed internet in my laptop for work. Besides that issue, the hotel is right in front of the beach, having a good location between touristic areas, beach and shops. It's also about 15 min away from the Recife International Airport (Uber is available). The morning breakfast is stupendous, having hot & cold options, fruits, yogurts, etc. The room was clean and the bed were comfortable (midfirm mattress). There's a small pool on the main floor and a gym (though I did not find the gym). If vacationing (in no need of internet), I'd stay again. If going for work, I'll need to look at other options. Also, most rooms have tremendous views of the city and or the beach!

This hotel management is not good, is a desastre! If you want to stay in a place that you do not want your dog to stay! This is the place. The restaurant is a joke!

Nice hotel at beach

Posted Jan 30, 2016
The rate through Expedia was very good and I had a nice big quiet room. For the same amount of money I have stayed in less desirable places in Boa Viagem. On the other hand I would not have booked there if I had to pay the full price. I had to extend my stay in Boa Viagem by one day, The hotel would not give me the same rate, so I went somewhere else but in the end I regretted, although I saved a few dollars.

Nice, but a little simple. 3 stars is more precise

Nice hotel, breakfast buffet is a little simple... For a few days it is ok.
