This is a nice resort in a remote location. Once you are here you are stuck. No transportation of any kind. No access to any convenience stores, restaurants, entertainment or food.

Food is sub par at best.

We were here for the World Cup and could not got any help to the stadium or the airport. Both are an hour away with out traffic.

Beach and pools are very nice but pretty quiet as activities go.

Front desk had no answers to any typical questions from tourists.

Services were lacking over all.

Would not recommend traveling all the way to Recife to stay here

With our the World Cup in town, I'm not sure who would come.

Dear Niels. The Marulhos Suítes Resort is, indeed, quite far from the World Cup stadium, but it has a good access to the airport. There are transport available for hire like vans, taxi and bus. And it's very close to Porto de Galinhas center where you can find shops, restaurants, banks, markets, etc. All that just a couple minutes from the resort. Sincerely Marulhos Suítes Resort team.

Nice resort, about an hour away from Recife. We stayed during the World Cup and the staff were very helpful in helping us get to and from the stadium during game days. Great pool, although the beach is not the best. Kudos to the staff who were gracious, friendly and very helpful. Very enjoyable stay.

Initially not sure if we can call the Marulhos Resort. It is an attempt, but not enough to be one. This is a place which is used by flats owners, part is leased and finally part is the "resort" rooms. The people that walks through the complex is pretty mixed.

The location is good, but who wants party or to be close to it, the hotel far.

Pros: The pool, specially for kids. The beach front is protected by reefs and hence is quiet, good for small children. Food: average. Rooms: good. Our room had a problem specifically with the bed. There were two single beds together with an old "pillow top" over them. The bed was very "soft" and the sheets were small, which made it "unlined" at bedtime.

Cons: Staff, good people but missing training and communication between them. The information are sometimes unmet. Recreation team: hardworking people up, but there is also lack of training and coordination. There was no distinction of age and older children and minors mix.

Inicialmente não tenho certeza se podemos chamar o Marulhos de Resort. É uma tentativa de, mas não chega a ser um. Trata-se de um condomínio onde parte dos apartamentos é usada por proprietários, parte é locada e, finalmente, outros são do dito "resort". A população que transita pelo complexo é bem heterogênea.

A localização é boa, mas quem quer agito ou ficar próximo dele o hotel fica longe.

Pros: a piscina. A praia em frente é protegida por arrecifes e portanto é calma, boa para crianças pequenas. Comida: na média. Quartos: bons. O nosso quarto especificamente tivemos um problema com a cama. Eram duas camas de solteiro juntas com um "pillow top" velho sobre eles. A cama era muito "fofa"e os lençóis eram pequenos, que fazia que ela desforrasse ao deitar.

Contras: Staff, embora atencioso há falta de treinamento e comunicação entre eles. As informações as vezes são desencontradas. Equipe de recreação: pessoas até esforçadas, mas também há falta de treinamento e de coortenação. também não há distinção de idade e as crianças maiores e menores se misturam.

This resort offers an excellent pool area, including a section where it is possible to do lengths. However, the beach is not good - the sand is just a small strip in front of the hotel and beyond it is a stretch of rocks which hotel patrons are advised not to walk upon. About 1Km. to the left there is a "natural pool" which could be used by families. The room was of standard level without being exceptional and one of the lights in the bathroom wasn´t working - despite pointing this out both to the porter and to the maid, it wasn´t fixed during the three days we were there. The food is copious and there is a good variety, but the quality is only average. The first night there was live music - a simply terrible group playing "Forró" - they were completely out of tune!! This was made up for the second night though, when there was an excellent Italian singer - truly first class. Neither the internet connection in the room nor the wi-fi worked. Overall, I would qualify this resort as "Good".

My family and I stayed for 6 nights at this place. We had actually gone through the flats rental per night, which is inside the resort. But ultimately the hotel reflects on the flats and vice versa. So there are a couple of things I observe in a hotel.

1) Quality of service. This hotel had one of the worst disqualified and untrained staff I have experienced. From bar to "restaurant" the service is horrible. I do like to mention two staff members that we did have a good experience with: Neia and Edna.

2) Quality of room. Here is where the hotel/ flat owner just really let go. We had 4 different apartments as we were family of 12 for new years. Every single room was outdated and disgusting. Bathroom smelled like mold, the towels and walls were paper thin, room was dirty and bed was ok but more on the hard side.

3) Location. The location is pretty great if you want to get away due. The beach of muro alto is pretty nice. It is not too far from porto de galinhas (still need a car) but far enough where there is no city feel.

4) Amenities (Pool, Gym, etc). The pools are pretty great. Many options where to stay. Bu the bathroom and gym there are absolutely horrible. I wouldn't call the sauna a sauna. And I would definitely not call the restaurant a restaurant. The buffet food (breakfast R$33, Lunch and Dinner R$47) is bad. There is no flavor. I tried ordering A La Carte and it took forever!!! I ordered a picanha medium rare, and it was sooooo well done. At that point I was so hungry i just ate the way it was. Seriously don't expect anything from the food. The A La Carte is better than the buffet but you will wait some serious time. If you are in the pool area look for Edna, if you are in the restaurant Neia. Those are the only two people that will get your food order right and try to deliver good service.

New Years Eve party ...The band was horrible. They would sing one song and take a 5 minute break in between. The countdown to new year was rushed because someone started the fireworks 6 minutes before the new year countdown.

Overall, this place was very disorganized and poorly managed.

I would not come back.

Good points - there are 5 main pools which offer great variety, especially if you have young kids. The beach at the front is shallow even at high tide, but that suited us as we have 2 young kids. The grounds are clean and tidy. Close to Cupe ( can walk via beach) and Porto De Galhinas ($30 reals by taxi or $18 reals by Uber)

Bad points - All the food on the menu is deep fried muck, takes forever to get served and is expensive ( it’s actually cheaper, quicker to taxi into town and get a decent quality meal and taxi back). Even on busy days, there is only one wait staff to take orders.

The bar is very under staffed and closes at 6pm, regardless of how many people are waiting to get a drink. You can’t charge the drinks back to your room and you need to have the exact amount as the staff can’t give you change. Most people bring a cooler box full of drinks and drink it by the pools.

The “Convenience” store is never open and there is nothing nearby where you can buy food or drink. Water here is unsafe to drink but you can only buy water in 500ml bottles and regularly run out.

Suggestion - book a apartment with a kitchen and take care of all your meals and drink. If you come here thinking you will get all your meals/drink here, you’re in for a rude shock!

Great hotel..............great pools especially for kids. Beach is very good for kids as at low tide there is a big natural pool seperated from the sea by a huge reef. Hotel is close to the town center (RS15 cab ride) where there ar bars, shops etc.
Breakfast is decent, dinner I only had once and it was a buffer and reasonable. Staff were pleasant all the time we were there........only one small disappointment was that the suite was rather small and cramped for 2 adults and 2 kids, but we had AC, a frigobar and 2 TV;s.besides we spent little time in the hotel so it was not a big deal.
1 hr ride from recife airport but worth it...........

It's an average quality holiday resort. Its not a bad resort but also there is nothing so special about it. Rooms were big but it seemed to me a little bit old. Pool was nice. Resort has a special beach but its not easy to swim. There are so many corals. To swim without corals, you have to walk a little bit and use the safe corner for swimming. as I remember it wasn't so far away from center of Porto de Galinhas.
