You get what you pay for, hotel reception very nice, excellent location, friendly maids. Rooms are very basic but as I say you get what you pay for. Some people's reviews I though the place was going to be a hell hole. Although it was a great stay for a few nights. The church bell does NOT ring every hour...

Just returned from a week in Villa Recife with my boyfriend. All in all this is a decent hotel and base to stay and a good budget accommodation. Don't expect Hilton style luxury because in life you get what you pay for. Pros: Great location- central and convenient for the old town. Those complaining about noise confuses me- we were...

Stayed here for a week in August 2014. Vila Recife is in an excellent location, only 5 mins walk to the main square in the old town and also near the lift to beach. Don't be expecting much luxury, this is real cheap and cheerful accommodation but rooms kept very clean. Wifi is only available in the bar area which...

We stayed just one night after 10 days camping, camping was better! We had no hot wather in the evening. No WIFI in the room. The breakfast was a waste of time, would of been better to stay in bed. We also have a hotel in the swiss mountains, 3 star, it's not that expensive and mutch nicer.

location is very central to the main square so much so that it is extremely noisy up until approximately 4am so do not plan on a relaxing holiday, we had to catch up on our sleep at the beach or in the room during the day, the rooms are old and tired, but they are cleaned daily with new towels...

Hotel is located in the historical center, few minutes walking from the main square and beaches too. It is quiet around the hotel, no big restaurants and pubs, so there is no noise from night life. But there are seagulls to wake you up every morning:) There is a super market 2 minutes from the hotel. Rooms are not very...

Excellent value for money, especially since our stay was in the school holidays 24th july - 3rd august. Rooms are basic but come with a fridge which comes in handy to store drinks, snacks etc. Also comes with a kettle. We stayed on the 4th floor think it was room 402. We overlooked the pool and most of the old...

We did ask for a double room, being a couple, but received a twin. This resulted in us pushing the beds together which I'm sure was much harder work for the housekeeping staff. However we did have a balcony as our room was right above the hotel entrance. This proved very handy for drying our swimwear and towels. The room...

Booked this at last minute for a four night break. "You get what you pay for" sums it up really. Rooms adequate but very basic. Breakfast most minimal "continental" I've ever seen!! We were in Room 104 which overlooked the pool. Very noisy outside until early hours of the morning. Obviously as you expect in the middle of August room...
