I stayed for one week in Onda Mar Hotel in Recife (Pe - Brazil). Although well placed in a touristic part of the town, i.e. Boa Viagem, close to the airport, and with a nice breakfest, the general aspect of the rooms, the quality of the bathroom, the quality of the beds are limited. The rooms are also very noisy due to intense streets traffic near-by, and to the three existing elevators. The access to WiFi is charged (3USD/h, with only one possible connection). The efficiency of the staff although very educated is limited (one week attempting to have a good evacuation of used water in the bath room). Be free to negociate prices in this hotel.

The room was well cleaned and sought after. Instead the lobby and the corridor area were't as such. The food was very good during breakfasts and reasonable during lunch. Everything you wanted was being charged, but reasonably. I could recommend Onda Mar for the accident traveller. Tommi Lindh

ワールドカップ期間に泊まりました。価格がワールドカッププライスだったので仕方ないと思いますが値段を考慮するとお部屋は満足できるものではありませんでした。しかし飛行機の遅延で夜中3時に到着してもしっかり対応していただきましたし、朝食も美味しかったです。通常料金を考えるとよいホテルなのだと思います。日本が勝っていればもっと良いイメージでした(笑)

Visited Recife for the world cup. The price was expensive but what can we say. The room was not that bad. Food was good. Also the hotel staff was nice. It was a better stay if Japan won the match...

I was in this hotel on the night of september 30, 2013. During checking in I asked for a quiet place. They assigned me room # 416. It was smelly and the shower box, in the form of a sharp triangle, extremely small. Besides this it was noisy! I went to the front desk an asked for another room. The gentleman sent me to room 916. This time the shower box was somewhat larger, at least you could move yourself around a little. But: it was smelly, the matress was hard as a rock and extremely noisy (noise come from cars, air conditioners from the hotel and surrounding buildings AND from a power generator!! The restaurant is good if you like big portions and do not care much about the appearance. Breakfast is the usual and plenty. I was supposed to stay for 05 nights. Could stand only one!

Onda Mar says it is 4 stars, but don't belevieve it. It is 2 stars or 3 minus.

It is a big building with a good structure, but very, very dirty.

Floors haven't seen water for months I believe. It is simply unbelievable how dirty the elevators are. The carpets are so dirty that you hardly see the carpets.

Rooms are are very badly cleaned. It seems the maid spends about 3 minutes to do all the work...

The windows in the rooms and other areas haven't been washed for years, for sure.

The restaurant floor is always dirty.

Air-con was very noisy and did not work well. TV did not work well. The bed is uncomfortable, sheets are old, towels are old.

Do you want know what I think? Onda Mar Hotel is onde of those hotels that could be easily much better and acceptable, but hasn't received maintenance and nowadays doesn't receive minimum and simple cares, like cleaning.

Front desk staff is slow and not very professional.

Breakfast is surprisingly nice and tasty, but how can you trust it and be tranquil is the hotel is so dirty?

Location is very good (2 blocks from a nice area on the beach) and near the nicest mall in Recife, as well as good restaurants.

Conclusion: only stay at Onda Mar if you get a really low rate. I paid 114 reais for two persons (48 reais), which is cheap for the area. I should have imagined the risk. For 50% more, you can stay in much better hotels in the same area.

On August 24, 2023, I looked at the daily rate for a standard room for 1 person, which on the Booking.com website was priced at R$171.00. I contacted the hotel, making the reservation over the phone for R$180.00. About 5 minutes later, I received a WhatsApp message from the hotel, informing that there had been an error, and it would cost R$300.00 per night. As I sent the prints of the Booking page, with the value of R$171.00, the employee said he would pay the amount, but threatened to deduct it from the salary of the employee who made the reservation. I told him that this was not correct, as she was working with the prices on the booking sites at that particular time. I ended up canceling the reservation in solidarity with the employee. Very incorrect attitude from this hotel. I don't recommend it, as it doesn't inspire confidence.

FUJA DESTE LUGAR!

There is no reason for you to believe in me and think that I'm exaggerating, you don't know me, but I don't want you to go. Please read to the end!

I'll try to sum up the chaos that was our 2 day stay in this place!

At the check-in when we arrived in the room I lay on the bed and couldn't stay 10 min, the bed looked like pure wood, I'm pregnant and I started to feel a lot of pain with this bed. I requested another room they said they didn't have!

My brother was in another room, where there was a bed left, I had to sleep 2 nights away from my 3-year-old son. THIS IS INHUMAN!
Then I witnessed two situations where they exchanged other guests in the room!!!!

Nothing works in this place! The door doesn't open with the key! Every time we left and went to the room we had to go back to the reception because we couldn't get in the room!

Air conditioning only ventilates, shower does not heat, internet does not work, swimming pool in renovation, chips in the room! Precary cleaning! Breakfast ok!

The employees do not give the minimum to you, have no empathy, have no education and respect for the human being!
A place of this where they do not value the well-being, safety of its guests must urgently undergo a reform, review its code of ethics and conduct!

The only positive point is the location, but don’t stay here just for that! Find another!

Como é o preço do restaurante do hotel, como rodízio de pizza, almoço e jantar?
Answer from Jacycsampa
Juazeiro, BA163 contributions44 helpful votes
Apesar do cardápio ser bastante diversificado, ( comemos um prato de camarão ao alho delicioso), o restaurante deixa a desejar no que diz respeito a abertura para clientes, sem ser hospedes do hotel. Existem propagandas de promoção de buffet por 19,90, fica em outdoor na calçada ( na época que fui Maio 2016 era esse preço,. isso nos causou transtornos eu,meu esposo e alguns amigos ficamos sem lugar para sentar como também não comemos tapioca por conta da fila está grande e ainda íamos para o aeroporto. O voou saia ás 08;h. o restaurante abre ás 07 h.
