Hostal-like experience, nothing more.

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 14 Feb 2024
Of all the 4-5 star hotels we stayed at during our February 2024 tour of the Northeast Brazil, Villa d'Oro near Olinda was the plainest, least memorable experience.
Small rooms, basic breakfasts, cheap furniture, a miniature pool, and minimum service sums it all up.

Ironically, Villa D' Oro charged us more than other really nice hotels and resorts that we stayed at in Recife, Praia Pipa and Natal, likely because of the Olinda carnival, which was happening while we visited.

Villa D'Oro is just an OK place to sleep and that's that, no value enhancement, not even smiles at the front-desk and definitely an overpriced basic hotel that we would likely not be staying at again now that we have discovered less expensive resorts that offer so much more value.

Take it for what it is, just a small, clean, safe hotel that offers a 2-3 star experience, and as long as you have no great expectations, you would he ok with it.
Date of stay: February 2024
Room Tip: The best and perhaps the only good feature of this hotel is that it has a secured private parking...
Trip type: Travelled as a couple
