The breakfast was great! Lots of choice, delicious, very friendly staff. The bed in the room was comfortable. Room was clean and all I needed. Everything in the room worked well. Very nice shower (definitely not saving water though). The location was good; close to the beach and some restaurants. Only two minuses: - They forgot to tell me that...

we were at the Hotel for the world School Championships. The rooms were ok, air condition was running, but not for the given temperature. Pool area is nice. Service is brazilian style, they take their time. The buffet on floor PB was ok, but warm meals were nearly the same for the whole week. Egg Station is good. 2 (and...

The only reason to stay here is the pool. The service is painfully slow and not professional enough. You will wait ages at the pool for service. Check-in is slow and the hotel is dated. Better to stay at the beach with a smaller pool. AC was not working in the room and took ages to fix with no apology.

It's very close to the beach and the airport. The rooms are clean and well maintained. My only issue is the wifi which is room specific. Once you leave your room you no longer have wifi which gets expensive for international travelers.

Spent a couple of days here prior to travelling to Natal. My wife and 4 year old enjoyed the stay however we felt that the bedrooms could be modernised. Breakfast was good, with plenty of options. No issues finding a car park bay. The swimming pool was clean. Probably would use this hotel again. Would have scored higher had the...

The rooms are nice and clean, and the two queen beds combined to a a very large bed is super. The staff is friendly and was always helfull. The problems with the hotel are under dimensioned elevators . As a consequence you have always to wait for the elevator especially when the hotel is full with a convention. The other...

We stayed in this hotel for one night before an early morning flight. The food in the restaurant was appalling - the only choice suggested for a vegetarian was 'a salad', and my steak was so inedible that I had to send the whole meal back to the kitchen and order an omelette - the fries and rice served with...

It wasn´t offered, not commented, on room upgrade and welcome drink was requested by the guest. I did not realize the standard Mercure facilities and services. Need more receptionist's attention to ask the guest about Le Club before performing the check in.
