Stayed here during World Cup for 5 nights during World Cup. Carol who was manager was a wonderful help in organising travel to and from games especially given the difficult conditions with torrential rain for one of the games. Carol was also a source of great advice re local restaurants and trips. All other staff were also charming and helpful.... More

This is a nice pousada at very reasonable prices. Don't expect luxury, but courtesy, good food and a pleasant stay. The beach is huge. The sea is often rough, but this is what you get in Brasil. The rooms are either at the ground floor or at the first floor. They serve fantastic mango juice and a fantastic shrimp and... More

First off, the grounds here are very green and beautiful. It's filled with tropical plants and trees and well maintained. The pousada itself isn't huge, it's just the right size to have a calm relaxing stay. Our room was large with a large shower and bathroom. We had a slight problem with ants in our room, since for some reason... More

This property is very lovely. The rooms are spacious and everything is clean and well manicured. The staff is extremely nice and helpful. The manager, Karol, speaks English and goes out of her way to make you feel at home. I was a bit under the weather while I was there and the cook made me a special order of... More

We had an enjoyable time over there. The pousada is situated in a beautiful location within a peaceful bit of the beach. It is a place for who really wants to rest and be not so close to the busy part of the village. Its decoration is beautiful and inviting. The staff is very friendly but they are slow. We... More

We stayed here for almost a week. We booked a beach bungalow, but they convinced us to take an ocean view instead. No other bungalows were available. It was fine and the view was great, but when it was time to check out, they made us pay the ocean front price instead of the ocean view price, even though we... More

My sister and I had a wonderful 5 day stay at Tabapitanga Pousada in May 2013. During our time there, we were the only English speaking guests and the owner was the only person working there that spoke English. This may deter some foreigners who are uncomfortable with that. Have patience! You can get around the resort just fine with... More

It's a charming hotel on a great spot for who knows how to swim (as the sea is a bit rough), quiet, far from the crowd and the main road. The rooms and toilet are big and confortable. Unfortunatelly, the service is terrible! People are friendly, but overall it's all too slow. You have to call for the same 2... More

Tabapitanga is called a pousada, but it feels much more like a resort. Very accommodating staff with excellent amenities and superb beach locale. I hate to say it, but I never actually made it to the town center because I was loving life way too much at Tabitaunga.
