“Excellent experience”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

This hotel is really well situated. The view is wonderful (sea view). Staff really friendly and the swimming pool really quiet. The Feijoada is really good! It is busier through the week. The weekends is really nice to stay with family. Really enjoyed my stay!

Room Tip: Choose a sea view room. Quieter and with balcony to the sea!

Whereas it lists as the most luxurious option in Vitoria, then the rooms are pretty standard, so is the breakfast. Great setting with a wonderful view and a nice pool area, but frankly nothing more than a good 3-star option, so price wise too expensive.

Opened in march of 1979, Hotel Senac sumarizes the best in hospitality, food, services and a breathless sunrise or sunset (when the weather is clear).

Built in the top of "do Boi" island, it has 95 rooms and is the only 'horizontal' hotel in Vitória, ES, with only 3 paviments.

Besides the sea view, I reserved two of my four stars for the traditional Feijoada & live Bossa Nova, a sensorial experience you can try with your mouth and ears every saturday, at lunch .

It's also close to one of the best beaches in town, "Esquerda" and "Praia Grande", some meters down the hotel's hill. Receptionists are english, spanish or french speakers and will be pleased to help you get a taxi or any other service you can look for.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view close to the Solarium, if you wake up early and like to swim or watch the sunrise...

i like Brasil and the people there and find everything very charming. this hotel fits that to a tee. i like the saturday afternoon fejuada feast, if you don't see that you didn't really get the feel of the hotel. the pool is very nice as are the rooms. the people working there become like friends especially if you try to speak Portuguese...oi, tudo bem? doesn't hurt. i especially liked the steam room and sauna at night before going to dinner. the view of the bay at night is spectacular and i still NJoy the pix from there. tchau...bom dia.

Room Tip: all rooms seemed to be on same level. there is an observation deck to see the bay. check it out at...

Me and my family stayed at Senac Ilha do Boi for 3 nights during 2010 new years eve. It is supposed to be 5 stars. Although it is indeed a good hotel (unbeatable view of Vitoria bay, comfy bed, excellent pool, walkable distance to small but pleasant Ilha do Boi beach, the best in the city), it has some problems for a hotel of such level. The most serious of all is the AC system. As it is centrally controlled, it remains at 21 ºC, no matter what you do at room control. As a result, 3 people of my family of seven got sick at the end of our journey. The service also could have been better. Breakfast items are not refilled quickly (some of them are not refilled at all) and asking for a beer or some snack at the pool can take literaly one hour. Overall, we had a pleasant experience, but it could have been better considering the costs (not for the budget minded traveller).

Room Tip: Superior rooms have unbeatable views to Vitória bay
