Hotel Recif is a very nice hotel and well located. Only 40 minutes away from the airport. Just 50-100 metres away from a lovely beach. Rooms are tidy and clean. The hotel might need a bit of an upgrade to keep his good rating, but I am sure they will.

Our shipped was docked due to electrical issues so this was not a visit by choice. The room was lovely in a minimalist style. The flower blossoms throughout the room were an extra added touch of the beautiful grounds brought to our room. Flowering trees decorated the grounds. There were two pools, didn't swim but both looked great. Breakfast offered...

We did not expect to have a hotel stay here, but when our expedition ship had mechanical problems in port they put us up here for two nights while it was under repairs. This is an older property but a large resort compared to most in the area. The rooms were spartan but clean, quiet, and comfortable. It has several...

Arrived 30/12/2016 late at night. Check-in was quick. Parking bit of a problem. Breakfast every day was good. Although stays the same every day except for the main dish. Kids loved the pancakes. Clean beach towels every day. 2 x big swimming pools. Literally on the beach to go for snorkeling. Shops about 900m away. Really very convenient, clean and...

3rd year of staying here. Very nice hotel with friendly staff and immaculately clean. Rooms serviced daily to high standard and good food. Right next to beach and 2 good pools (although one was being relined during my stay this year). Highly recommended :)

Average room, good bathroom and toilet, perfect location near the beach, good restaurant, very kind and dedicated staff, good wifi in the reception area (they don't promise wifi in the rooms, so no complaints here).

When we entered the room, we were surprised to receive a honeymoon present. The place is very relaxing, right at the beach. The service was very friendly and we enjoyed our stay very much. We were at dinner once, and it was only average, especially in relation to its price. The rooms very clean, but one notices that the hotel...
