Right across from the picturesque Meireles and Mucuripe beaches is the Hotel Praia Mar—a 3-star air-conditioned establishment that provides free access to Wi-Fi throughout its common areas. Each of its 34 guest apartments is equipped with a private bathroom, cable television, personal safe, and a minibar.
Guests can purchase a cold drink from the vending machine, then head to the pool hall for a game of billiards, join in on a friendly game of dominoes, or try their hand at poker. The front desk is staffed on a 24-hour basis and is available to assist guests with luggage storage or car hire.
