I've been there for long weekend due to Easter and really loved the place. Staff is very welcoming, they really care about their customers and make them feel great. The room we stayed at is brand new and we also took the chance for a massage - very relaxing! Food included for dinner and good breakfast. Food and beverage are... More

This resort looks like from the postcards. Wonderful, sandy beaches, ocean, coconuts and great service. This place is quiet, romantic, and very comfortable. The breakfast is very good (don't forget to try tapiocas!)

We stayed here for 2 nights in September 2014. We were driving down the NE coast of Brazil from Recife to Salvador (which I recommend). This is a lovely place with 50 'rooms' or rather small independent apartments which are arranged very nicely so that the place doesn't feel too big. The gardens are lush and there's a nice pool...

We stayed in one of the beachfront pousadas. The rooms were a little older, but clean and had all the amenities you might need. We loved the hammock that was strung just outside of our door. The food at the restaurant was surprisingly great! They had a big menu, despite it being low season. When the restaurant wasn't open, the... More

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

We spent 4 days in this charmong pousada on the beach of Nordeste Brazil. It is located at 1 hour away from Recife, but a new road allows you to get the town and the airport quite easily. The village of Porto Galinha is quit but offers a lot of restaurants and beautiful beaches. Everything in this pousada is good!... 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
