Arrived in the evening after 22:00hrs and the night watchman, Senior Antonio was there to greet us with a huge smile and the key to our room. We went straight to sleep lulled by the waves breaking on the shoreline and awoke in the morning by birds singing and water lapping on the shore. What a beautiful grey morning as... More

They give you a small house, with a functional kitchen, a dinner and rooms: if you go with over 2 people, you want to do your groceries and save on cooking, this is your place. But if you are as a couple and you want a hotel level service, this is not your cookie: beware of the mosquitoes (I agree... More

Amazing to have the joy of experience such a paradising beach with a carefull staff in Xales de Maracaípe. The negative point is related to insects, but nothing that the place itself don't surpass by it beauty.

This would be qualified as less than one star hotel and a little above a South American hostal: floors of bricks, no hot water, a lot of mosquitoes (probably due to the animals' dung all around the place), only cash and located after a very scary looking shanty town. The first night my girlfriend and I had to fight an... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and overall it was fantastic. The chalets are very basic, but they are clean. Elene, who works at the desk, is wonderful. She is fluent in English, arranged a number of taxis for us, was very knowledgeable and could not have been more helpful. Have the hotel arrange your pick-up from the airport. It... More

My friend and I chose this as our last destination after 3 weeks in South America. We were hoping for it to be a relaxing place to restore ourselves before we flew back to the United States. We found it to be just that - quiet, peaceful, and relaxing. They even have an onsite massage therapist - who does a... More

If you like simple, rustic accomodations then this a quiet coconut plantation is the spot for you. The location is ideal for snorkling immediately after the extraordinary breakfast each morning. If you are visiting the area stay here and avoid the noise in Porto de Galinhas. 5 stars!

If you are planning to go to Porto de Galinhas and don't want to stay at the fancy hotels and want something closer to nature you gotta stay at this XALE. 50 meters of the beach, calm, beautiful and friendly staff. Very good food. Worth every penny.
