Went as 3 people - 2 adults and a teen. This is our second stay at this hotel. When making the reservation online the only option for the days we wanted was a room with 2 single beds and a sofa bed. Turns out the single beds are big enough to fit 2 people comfortably so we didn't even use the sofa bed. It was a side room on the 10th floor, but all rooms have a decent view of the ocean so being a side room was not a negative issue. After about 4 days we got a free upgrade to a superior ocean front room with a king size bed with a separate area with a single bed which was awesome. The separate area had its own TV and window. This room was on the 7th floor. Breakfast was always excellent. Staff very polite. I noticed that a lot of reviews here are either love it or hate it, my explanation for this is that everything depends on what type of room you get. The hotel is undergoing renovations so not all rooms are new. If you don't get a renovated room you might have some issues. Like my last year's review, I again will emphasize that you should avoid the beach area immediately in front of the hotel because the people renting the beach chairs and umbrellas are going to overprice everything. Just go a block north and don't get charged for chairs and umbrellas, as long as you buy a couple of drinks and/or snacks from the chair owners in that area. Way cheaper and there is no difference. Example: one coconut water in front of hotel: 17 Reais. One block north: 6 Reais.

Reserved GRAN MERCURE in Recife, Brazilian northeast, beachfront. Res #: NFTSHWTQ 1) FAKE PHOTOS AT ALL ACCOR APP: the room pictures are NOT real. Real is: 20 years old, ugly, full of broken things – the hotel is the most expensive of Accor in Recife!! 2) After undress, noticed that air conditioning was broken and impossible to control – only full power, high noisy (20 year old air conditioned), when tried to call front desk – guess what. Phone was broken too! 3) Front desk: change the room. Ok; 4) Room # 621. Arrive at room, opened the door – IT WAS OCCUPIED! Couple screamed and I claimed for sorry. Went back to front desk; 5) 9 people in line in front desk due to the lack of personal; 6) New room assigned; 7) Same 20 year old with broken stuff etc. At least the air conditioning was working with possibility to control on/off. Speed control, forget it of course. APP MUST SAY (hotel will be renovated) giving customers the option to choose another hotel. MUCH MORE FOR LOYAL CUSTOMERS LIKE ME!

The room was fine, average. The hotel lobby is being redone. It will probably be nice when it's done. The front desk spoke OK English, but it was pretty hit and miss otherwise. The restaurant was meh. The location of the hotel isn't all that great. Seemed safe enough, but there wasn't much nearby in terms of restaurants and, even though the beach is right across the street, it doesn't seem to be a popular part of the beach. At least when we were there. So, an average place in a location where there isn't much around it.

The most incompetent desk staff I’ve ever encountered. Beyond inept. - unable to process an invoice - unable to correct the expenses in error - unable to add my address to the bill - all of this over a 30 minute wait My advice: avoid unless someone else will go through the agony of paying your bill at check out

the worst Mercure that I never seen.. (I travel a lot ) everything is old and broken, walls, plugs, bathroom, spa closed, restaurant closed … I went downstairs to share my sadness, I saw the incapacity of the poor guy! ( professional anyway👍🏻) He tried to show me another one, but it was similar. Actually the hotel is in refreshing, but please! Close it! We pay full price ! For half service can’t stand that , All Accor group allow it!? Yes beach is very closed, butit does not make everything!

This hotel is in an excellent location. Service and staff were very good. My main issue is that due to it being in the beachfront I found the bed linen to be too humid for my taste. Maybe having the air conditioning on could help although I understand the cost

We tried to check in from website as it stated we could but was not able to. When we checked in the concierge was rude when I inquired why. It seemed like nobody even checked our room before we entered. Because the shower door was missing and water was flooding into the bathroom. Cob webs and spider on mirror in bathroom, also mold. Our room window was broken and we could hear all of the traffic and noise from the street. The lights were broken and when I mentioned all of these problems to the front desk all they did was fix the light. Finally after bringing to attention the third time on the second day middle of the night they finally moved us out of the room. Into a room that looked like the photos of the room we thought we booked……. The only reason I give two stars is because of the view, and the breakfast we had every day was delicious. They were not receptive about our unpleasant stay, we will not go back or recommend to our friends or family.

I recommend staying at the Grand Mercure Boa Viagem hotel for a trip to Recife. The location is right across from the beach and within walking distance of a variety of restaurants and shops. The staff was friendly, professional and efficient and the area around the hotel seems safe. I stayed in one of the renovated rooms with a great view of the ocean. The room was nicely decorated, everything was clean and modern, and the bed was very comfortable. The room was quiet and definitely a good value. Other factors: The breakfast was great and Wi-Fi was fast and reliable. The only shortcoming was the worn-out and outdated fitness center which needs to be part of the ongoing renovation process.

I'll start with the staff: EXCELLENT! Everyone was super polite and professional and always ready to help when we needed something. I paid for a room with 2 double beds and with a view of the beach. It was totally worth it because the view was awesome. According to the website the hotel is currently being renovated. My room was clearly not one of the renovated ones because the furniture was dated showing stains and scratches. But nothing that would make me want to ask to change rooms. The pool area is very nice with lots of comfortable chairs to use. So comfortable I actually took a nap one day. I didn't use the gym. Breakfast was very good and plentiful. The tables next to the windows with the beach view are everyone's favorites. The only thing that I didn't like at breakfast were the juices. They were VERY watered down. It was like colored water most of the time. The only exception was the orange juice so that was the one we always chose. Like the title of this review says, the location is great. Just cross the street and you're on the beach. One very helpful hint: don't use the chairs and beach umbrellas directly in front of the hotel. They are overpriced. Walk a block or so up the avenue and the beach furniture isn't charged at all especially if you consume a drink or two. It took me about 3 days to figure this out. As an Accor Silver level member I got a free late check out since our flight was at night. So in conclusion there was nothing that made me dislike this hotel and I would definitely return.

I understand the hotel is under renovation but currently it is extremely expensive for the condition it is in. The reception is dated and has an overpowering air freshener smell. I later realised that this is to cover the damp/mould smell. Various areas of the hotel have a damp smell. There are drips of water in the corridors coming through the ceiling. Our room was dated and scruffy (see photos). The air con was old and hard to control, water dripped through vents onto the floor. The bed and pillows were very comfortable but the sheets were old and worn with some small rips. The bathroom was fine. I requested a duvet for my childrens bed and they just provided additional blankets. Apparently they is only one duvet per room and no additional ones available! My parents in law room had an overpowering mould/damp smell on request the were moved to another room. There was no duvet supplied and they were cold, when they requested one they were given a duvet cover with no duvet inside. Breakfast was ok. Some glasses weren’t too clean lipstick marks etc. The gym is also under renovation it’s very small, no windows and quite airless. It’s full with four people in. I certainly wouldn’t recommend this hotel, hopefully it will be nice when the renovation is complete but they have a long way to go.
