“Still need to improve”
Reviewed 19 June 2012

The hotel is well located (in front of Boa Viagem beach) but it deserves a full refurbishment to be adequated to a nice city like Recife.
The cost is on the average, thus I wouldn't say we are paying cheap prices so that we "deserve it"...
Anyway, the worst thing was finding a cockroach and hear from Reception that "it might have been brought on your suitcases"... at least they have given us another room...

Old hotel with a terrible view althoug its located in front of Boa Viagem beach. The rooms smell bad, noisy in the morning, dirty pool, no extra towels, no beach service. Roaches on the room. Choose another one.

After moving from the totally overpriced Mercure Recife Metropolis I got a somewhat cheaper (but still too expensive) refurbished room in this hotel. What a disappointment! The room is nothing special and small. I do not want to see the "not refurbished" rooms. Internet was poor. The problem is that Recife has no good hotels which are worth paying the rates they are asking for. I am really curious how this city wants to cope with the Soccer World Cup in 2014 when Recife wants to be a host city. Poor hosts....
One good thing: the fish dish from the room service was delicious!

Front desk asked me to pay all the nights up front, at check-in. Not a good start.

Most rooms are smoking rooms, only one floor has non-smoking rooms, I understand. Room not worth the price they charge.
Good breakfast. Well-located, not far from airport.

From time we arrived I truly wasn't satisfied with staff or presence of hotel. No assistance with luggage, they guy at front door stood there watching while we unloaded luggage. Front desk help didn't speak english, he kept turning to my Brazilian friend. We were given keys and safe lock to room, keys didn't work had to return to front desk. Tried to find safe in room to lock valuables, there where holes in the wall from where the safe used to be. Room has a/c but no thermostat control. No soap or shampoo in the room had to call and make a request .

At 6pm we decided to go to the pool, the bar pool was closed, and no towels for guests. FYI, for handicap guest, the pool is not handicap accessible, we had to take 1 flight of stairs to access pool. Next morning I was doing some work on laptop, and had some friendly ants crawling on desk and found them in the bathroom. Pillows are hard and uncomfortable.

This hotel is definitely NOT meeting or event approval as I do meetings and events for a living. Wished the Best Western had rooms available as I always stay there.
