Xama is very near Praia Amor and an easy stroll to the town centre and Golfinhos. The breakfasts were fantastic and abundant. The rooms were comfortable and well appointed. Everything we needed from our Pipa accommodation.

Place was awesome. As a family of 5 we got to stay in the "bungalow," which was really like a small house. There was plenty of room for all of us. Also, the lady who runs the show there is amazing. She made sure our laundry was taken care of and hooked us up with sand board rentals. She was... More

Our favorite pousada so far in brazil! It is beautifully decorated and in a perfect location (a 5 min walk to the Praia do Amor beach) and a 2 min walk to the best club. (If you're not into that however, the hostel is far enough away that you can have an early night without being disturbed.) It is an... More

A lovely secret garden tucked away in one of the back streets of Pipa. Full of well cared for hummingbirds, bands of cheeky monkeys hunting (unsuccessfully) for crumbs after breakfast and a beautifully kept pool with timber decks & exuberant greenery around it. Located an easy walk from praya Amor & the center of town. Small, basic but very clean... More

We've been to Pipa three times, and stayed at Xamã every time. At this point, it's a bit like staying with family. A family that includes fuzzy monkeys, bossy hummingbirds, and cute bats. The rooms are small and basic but comfortable and spotless. The owners are friendly and no-nonsense, and they put a lot of TLC into the pousada, always... More

I've stayed few days in this pousada, located close to Praia do Amor. Quiet place, clean bedrooms (fresh flowers in the toilets ;) you'll find around the swimming pool a nice garden with dozens of colibris and little monkeys. Nice people, and a great breakfast with fresh fruits!

Pousada Xamã was by far the best place (for little money) we stayed at in Brazil. The pousada itself is very beautiful with a lot of plants, flowers, butterflies, hummingbirds,... and the room was large, charming, in very good condition and with a hammock on a balcony overviewing the neighbourhood. The owners are very nice and helpful and also the... More

The place is fine, clean and well taken care -- make sure you ask for the renewed rooms, which are nicer than the old ones. However, this place is located at the end of the village, on the street behind the local nightclub, and you have to walk 10 minutes to the center of town to get to the best... More

I spent the new years there with a group of 11 people. We were there for a week and it was very good! The owners take very good care of the place and are close to the guests. They also can organize trips, boogy rides, boat rides as well, if we want. They have a pool table and a barbequeu... More
