The room and the beds are good, but there were some things that were just impossible to look away from.
The bathroom door was actually splitting in half, and wouldn't close. A lot of water would often come out of the drain out in the veranda (which was really small). It made a lot of noise and, when I complained about it, the staff told me it was "normal" and happened whenever they switched on the pool machinery.
The bathroom main lighting was out, so I had to use the small mirror light, which was really dim.
The room door was sticking to the door frame and demanded heavy pushes in order to open/close it.

Stayed: July 2015, travelled on business

Excellent service. Very responsive and helpful staff. Unfortunately I was there during the World Cup so had to pay their overinflated prices even though I wasn't in Recife for the football.

Rather steep ramp to get in to the lobby, but at least there was a ramp.

This is the first time in many years of travel that I asked to have a room changed. The bathroom smelled of sewage, light in bathroom and hairdryer not working, faucet leaked,sink didn't drain, toilet seat too loose to sit on, unless your arms were 4 ft. long, you had to get up to reach the TP. no bathmat, floor so slippery we had to put towels down to walk on it.

Bathroom smelled of sewage which is why I changed rooms. Neither bathroom light nor hairdryer worked. The floor, when wet was too slippery to walk on; it required 4 foot arms to reach the TP which was hung across the room from the toilet. The faucet dripped, the toilet seat was almost too loose to sit on safely, the door didn't close. There were NO hangers, the beds were wooden platforms with a 2" foam pad, sheets, pillowcases were spotted and the "mattress" cover was very dirty. The wooden slats on the frame could easily be felt through the
foam Mattress. The second room was better, but not what I would recommend. Location was excellent.

Bathroom is terrible. Rooms which final number is 10 have terrible view -all you see is the next building from a very small balcony. Beach (Boa Viagem) in front of the hotel has sharks, so avoid baths. Hotel is old and needs to be taken care. Elevator smels bad.

Beach front, a decent room with an OK WiFi signal, cleanliness could be better, hotel staff not very friendly. A large selection of Brazilian channels, but alas; not one is in English and most movies are dubbed in Portuguese. If you cater for international public, a BBC, CNN and / or Discovery channel goes a long way.

Breakfast is poor.
It`s local dishes from the Pernambuco region, so you get only 2 juices that I found disgusting, not even orange juice was available. You get some scrambled egg and some questionable greasy meat dishes among other stuff which I still don`t know what they were. No boiled eggs, no selection of Yoghurt`s (only 1 sweet one), a poor selection of (cheap) cold meats and 1 cheese.

They pretend to be a pretty top end hotel and the room was indeed nice; but the above things leave a lot to be desired.

Verdict: there are better options.
