We weren't sure what we would find in Pontal dos Carneiros. Fortunately we were very happily surprised by how enjoyable the hotel is. Located in the best beach in Carneiros, Pontal is the only hotel on this pristine beach. Comfortable bungalows are scattered in a beautiful grass field. You will find plenty of great spaces to just quietly lounge about.... More

As the name says, it's not a hotel or a resort, but a lodge. And this is what this review is about. "Pontal dos Carneiros" has no intent to pass as nothing else but a lodge. It rents bungalows that fits a whole family (6) or a small one (3). Also offers simple restaurant, room and beach services. We rented... More

My family and I stayed in a bungalow in the beginning of August, and had a great experience. We stayed for 4 nights, and really had a wonderful time. The hotel grounds are beautiful, and right on the beach. The bungalows are large, with a kitchen, air conditioning, 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, and are located throughout an old coconut... More

i got surprised with the quality and profissionalism of the staff, wich was further complemented with the beauty of the Tamandare beach. I went to Carneiros during my honey moon, and it was just a perfect memory for my wife and me, no regrets or deceptions.

Stayed for 3 nights last month after finding a good deal at R$340 a night. The Good: fantastic location, the bungalows are beautiful and the beaches up and down are spectacular though the reef with the "piscinas naturais" can get crowded with day trippers who come in by boat so recommend walking down past the beautiful church for complete peace...

A five star resort with intimacy. We were here for only two nights, sadly, but it was definitely our favorite vacation place in Brazil. The bungalows are tastefully decorated, large and sunny, with a view of the ocean. Also, super clean, which was a real plus. The breakfast was good...the staff was very attentive. Unlike other beaches in Carneiros, this... More

Praia dos Carneiros is one of the most beautiful beaches in Brazil. The beach is full of coconut trees and natural pools and the most beautiful part of it is right in front of Pontal dos Carneiros Beach Bungalows. This hotel / Inn has nice bungalows spread out along the green grass and surrouded by coconut trees. Each bungalow has... More

This place is a true paradise! Me and my wife just got back from staying here and we loved every second of it! The bungalows are very cosy surrounded by beautiful nature and the staff here was very helpful and friendly. The only negative things was that the jacuzzi was a bit dirty, the tv didnt have many channels and... More

If you travel to Pernambuco, go to Carneiros (or further south beaches) instead of the over exploited, touristy and cheesy Porto de Galinhas. This hotel right on the sand, in a beautiful part of the beach. There is a great lawn with palm trees, where you can lie in the sun, read and relax. They also have chairs in the... More

We visited there with the family, a couple and a 3 year old daughter in January 2013. We were looking forward for an excellent and relaxing vacation and we partially got it. The location is just superb. The beach has a mix of rock reef which protects the tides from coming too close to shore and produces the natural swimming... More
