Recife is not exactly my favorite place to go, but can be inevitable, so here we go... This hotel is a good place to take the family. Clean and spacious rooms, friendly staff, parking available (25 RS/night), very good breakfast buffet. Good gym, sauna, a pool and overall updated. Showers are warm, not hot!
They have a newer and an older part of the building, one with ocean view, the other one with a view of the wall and A/Cs. We still prefered the one without a view because of the bed arrangements and the size. Didn't come there to see the beach anyhow.
Most of Recife's hotels are expensive (for Brazil) and generally not very nice, but we were pleasantly surprised with this one since we were on a budget. Beware of Recife's reputation for sexual trafficking and violence issues in general. Eating at the hotel's restaurant or order in at night instead of going out is not a bad idea unless you know exactly where you are going. We asked if walking at the beach was okay, and two separate locals told us it may be risky. Oh, and if you are scared of shark attacks, this is not your city. They are not very frequent, but they do happen. If you want to actually enjoy the beautiful coastline, drive an hour or so south or north to find a nicer spot.More
