The combination of the brands characteristics with human personalities is one scientifically proven way to create this value. Therefore, the present study aims to identify the presence of personalities in hotel brands focused on sun and beach tourism.

For doing the research, at first, 405 surveys were applied whose approach involved the recognition of 41 personality traits proposed by the research instrument on these establishments and using the Likert Scale from 0 to 10. In addition, it was also investigated the alignment of this scale with the mission, vision and values statements from each hotel. Finally, suggestions from experts in marketing and branding were collected about ways to develop brands in the hotel industry. The results showed that only four of the BPS five dimensions – sincerity, sophistication, competence and excitement – were considered applicable for all sample participants and in this same sequence of decreasing values of means, as described by the Tukey test that was used as a complement for comparative purpose between hotel means. In the mission, mission and values statements of the samples, it was verified the predominance of characteristics more closely related to the competence and sincerity dimensions.
