Parents or a legal guardian travelling with children under 18 years must present the child's birth certificate and an identity card with photo (passport, for example) at check-in. For international travels from Brazil, if just one of the parents is travelling with the child, he/she must present – in addition to the child's birth certificate and identity card with photo – a letter authorising the trip signed by the other parent with a notarised certification of signature. If the parents or the legal guardian, as applicable, cannot or are unwilling to give this authorisation, a judicial authorisation is required. People who intend to travel to Brazil with children must consult with the Brazilian consulate before travelling for more information.

Only registered guests are allowed in the guestrooms.

Reservations are required for massage services and can be made by contacting the property before arrival at the number on the booking confirmation.

Grand Mercure Recife Boa Viagem
Tired looking hotel, not a 4*
We came here for a bit of luxury, let me tell you..............This is not a 4 star hotel, it is about 15 years out of date, desperate need of modernisation. The decor is extremely dated and seems to be fraying at the edges, the pool looked unclean, the gym was old, lacked equipment with anything there straight from the 90's. AC units need to be updated to a modern unit for better circulation and temperature control. Bathroom plumbing wasn't great, constantly leaking after showering or using the toilet. Hotel is known for an excellent breakfast but was met with a mediocre buffet. Do not waste your money if you're expecting luxury, however, if there's a deal and you're looking for an average place to sleep, this place will do, the beds were fine and the rooms were clean.

Recommend for one or two days
All rooms overlook the sea, some may have side view. Breakfast buffet is great and it's very close to the airport around 10 min by taxi.

Dated, tired and unclean
The first room we were put in face a brick wall after requesting a sea view. The staff were very helpful and help us move rooms. Sadly the new room looked as if it had been half cleaned, the bathroom had mold in the shower and there was even chewed bubble gum left on the basin top. The wardrobes and bedroom also had a dozen or so moths which should be easy to get rid of???!!! On the plus side the breakfast was ok and the location is good

good food /location
Comfortable and quiet room. Right across the street from the beach. Close to airport and shopping. Great food and selection at morning buffet, included in stay. Only drawback I experienced was spotty and weak WiFi in room.

Needs a big facelift
The hotel is really run down and the wifi connection is extremely slow. It is well located next to the beach, so there is a good view to wake up to.
