My husband and I stayed at this little hotel in June 2014 for four nights. It is a very friendly little hotel. Our room was big and comfortable. It was on the ground floor and the door was a little hard to close, but other than that the room was very nice. We felt very safe and at home. Breakfast... More

We stayed a few nights before heading back up to Recife (to catch a WC game) and were so glad that we choose to stay in Porto De Galinhas. What a great town with lots of restaurants/bars, joyous environment, friendly people and beautiful beach. Tabajuba surpassed our expectations. Rooms were clean (each had own hammock), staff was the friendliest we... More

Very friendly staff, with a very professional attitude, perhaps except in the restaurant. Good breakfast, and a nice touch of complimentary aftenoon coffee with delicious cake. The variety offered is very good. Just a shame that, with a kitchen right there, they refuse to offer "queijo assado". Overall, nice restaurant, with a good menu, but not always polite staff, especially... More

Excellant location on the beach and very cheap for food and drink. If yyou stick to salads and sandwiches meals are poor and often wrong or a mistake... Decent room with good views ...staff are a bit miserable with the exception Of a few. Worth a visit ..

We spent 2 weeks at the Tabajuba during the World Cup and enjoyed it very much. all the staff was very friendly and it was almost like a Family atmosphere at the pousada. The breakfast was also something we looked every day forward :). We can recommend this place absolutely.

Charming, intimate and with excellent breakfast and kitchen available to make snacks through the day. On a quiet part of the beach with great waves and a short walk into the busier part of Porto de Galinhas. The 5pm tea is a nice touch. Lovely staff, great service, tranquil atmosphere. The only thing it might be nice to upgrade a... More

I stayed at this lovely family run hotel whilst on my own visiting Recife to research family history. When I booked, i didnt realise how far it was from Recife, however that was a bonus because of its fab seafront location. I used the bus to travel from the hotel to Recife central and the airport, it was convenient and... More

This adults-only property is located on quiet stretch of beach, about half-way between the town and Cupe beach (this is a great thing as you're somewhat removed from the craziness in the town but not too far away from it and the other beaches/attraction). It's a 20 minute walk along the beach to the town, which is a great to... More

Porto de Galinhas is Pernambuco's main tourist destination.it's warm emerald green waters will attract hundreds of thousands of tourists, brazilians or foreigner. High season (sept-feb) can be somewhat chaotic, with noisy, crowded streets, drunken teenagers partying heavily and street kids begging for money. But if you're heading for Tabajuba, scratch all that: this charming B&B is a sea of calm... More
