“Good deal, even if not a "super hotel"”
Reviewed 26 March 2007

I hace chosen this hotel after reading the reviews, in this site. I did not regret, even if this hotel is not a "super one":
Great location, as Piedade Beach is nice and quiet. Also not far from Boa Viagem Beach.
The staff is ok too.
Rooms are average.
Breakfast is good.
Swimming pool is small

I've read somewhere this hotel is a 4 star, but it is not: it is a 3 star. Good for a 3 star, poor for a 4 star.
Good deal, anyway, i think.

It's hard to find hotel reviews and city information about Recife, so we took a chance on Blue Tree Towers on Piedade Beach. The hotel is situated right on the beach, whereas if you stay at a hotel on Viagem Beach (which is the main beach north of Piedade), you must cross a busy street to get to the beach.

The rooms are modern, clean and well-kept and include a mini-fridge/bar, safe, hair dryer and air-conditioning which is remote controlled. Our room was a deluxe with an ocean view and a small balcony.

The free buffet breakfast at the hotel was good and had a variety of foods to choose from. Lunches were also good, but the only dinner we ate at the hotel was horrible.

Although few of the staff spoke English, they were all excellent, from the Reception (particulary Junior who spoke excellent English) to the restaurant staff to the pool guy to the maid.

The beach, unfortunately, is filled with rusty bottle caps and other trash, and although a cleaning crew went to work at night to clean up the trash and seaweed left on the beach, you will swim in seaweed. You can walk in either direction and find more suitable places to swim, and what's nice is there are a string of local vendors who set up chairs and unbrellas and offer food and drink and you can choose anywhere along the beach to park yourself.

There are lots of hawkers on the beach, but they are very polite. After saying "No, obrigado (no thanks), most will give you a thumbs up and walk away.

The weather is great. Although the temperature was 90 degrees every day, a cool wind blew constantly from the ocean.
