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

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

Tabapitanga is a romantic place with a very nice personnel. The food is exeptionnel and it's the perfect place for just relax, walk on the beach, and chill at the pool. The room is very spacious and confortable. One of the most charming hotel I've ever been.

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
