Three night stay. Stayed at Courtyard by Marriott later the same week.
We got the impression this stylish building was supposed to be small condominium apartments but was changed into a hotel. Chose a deluxe room with ocean view high floor. Roomy but weird layout with lots of wasted space. 2 A/Cs. View nice view but window small and balcony tiny. Basic furnishings but bed comfortable. Quiet. Good black out shades. Basic bathroom with decent shower. Signs indicate pending refurbishment. While no complaints a bit of up-scaling is in order.

Elevator requires room key. Housekeeping fine though came rather late in day. Wi-Fi just OK.

Never seemed busy but the number of people at breakfast suggested high occupancy. Good breakfast spread. Omelets and tapiocas cooked to order.

Front desk warm and eager but English limited. Appreciated welcome capairina!
Never offered a map or tourist information. Despite speaking to them in Spanish they seemed clueless about where to buy a bathing suit in an emergency!: Wandering around we found an “EXTRA” ( a huge WalMart/ Target kind of store) with everything imaginable, just 3 or 4 blocks away.

Walking distance dining suggestions were good. Hotel restaurant pricey and a bit lonely looking.

Beach towels upon request (the Brazilian’s don’t take towels to beach !) and the beach across the street in gloriously wide regardless of tide as opposed to more south, with plenty of loungers/umbrellas that are yours to use as long as you consume from the operator (can be just a couple of sodas). Unaggressive entertaining beach vendors. Liked beach here much more than our subsequent location, more south along the same beach.

The entire Boa Viagem area is upscale and likely as safe as it gets but so many gates and watch guards make it slightly unnerving.

Notes: Fixed price from airport is 30 reales but a cab back was less. On trips to Old Recife and Olinda (50 reales) the return cab drivers did not know where hotel was: bring a map, etc.

A satisfying choice and would’ve given it a 5 of 5 if reception were more knowledgeable / helpful and the décor was a bit more upscale.

This is an excellent choice if you are coming to Recife. I've stayed in other hotels in the city, many times in Boa Viagem - but this was the best experience I've ever had. The service is awesome, and that's what matters most for me. The room is comfortable, no luxuries at all - but the food is great and the team is extremely kind, attentive and well informed. I'll definitely come back, this will be my place in Recife.

Room Tip: The view to the beach is amazing - ask for a room with a view.

very nice hotel, great location, clean large rooms, amazing views. Good value for money and a very nice stay (8 days), parking too. Wifi adequate and not very fast. Lift/door cards easily wiped so had to be changed a lot.

We got a room on high floor. View was great. Definitely get a sea view room. The room was very big and it had three beds in it plus a table. Room was clean but not super modern. That's fine.

TV was not HD and no English Channels but apparently they are in the process of upgrading the TV's.

Breakfast was good. Overall a great stay.
