“nice place, great beach, rooms a bit small and dark”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

I stayed here for a conference, Wonderful location on the beach, very nice pools, friendly staff. The room I had was surprisingly dark, just one small window under a large overhang, no patio or balcony. Food was good in the buffets, but rather than go into the dinner (40 reals) I'd recommend ordering from the bar and sitting out by the pool, or a simple sandwich from room service (if you have a nicer room than I had). I was in #96, and the other slight downside was that the evening entertainment is pretty loud in that room, and it runs most nights from 8-10 pm, and people stay on in the courtyard until after the bar closes at 11. So if you want quiet that wouldn't be the room, or the bldg, for you. But I enjoyed it. It's about 2 km into town, taxis are 10 reals each way, and lots of nice restaurants there. Not much to see or do at the resort except the beach and the pools, so plan to go into town for a bit more excitement. But, overall, a great place to relax.

Room Tip: ask for a room farther away from the pool/bar/restaurant if you want it a little quieter

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

We went to Porto de Galinhas for Easter holiday. We arrived late night and there was no parking space near to the front door. Hotel doesn't have parking. You have to park on the street.
The staff is very friendly and always try to help you.
The air conditioner in our room was leaking and making a loud noise. We called the reception and in the same afternoon they fixed it.
Hotel, room and bathroom are very clean.
There were a special agenda of activities for the holiday.
Hotel is located about 30 minutes walking (in the beach) until the village. By car it is only about 5 minutes. I think it is the closest good hotel to the village.
There are 3 pools in the hotel. So, you always find a place and a chair available.
The beach in front of the hotel is clean but the sea is agitated.

Conclusion: the hotel was a good surprise considering the rates we paid during holidays.

There must be better places to stay near Porto de Galinhas. Hotel Armacao is intended for Barzilian families, and lacks a resort-feel. The rooms are very basic and rather small. Also tiny ants in the room... Buffet and breakfast average. Live entertainment every night. Wifi available. The best that Armacao has to offer is a nice beach with good 'beachservice'. And not a lifeguard on the beach but a fotoguard who takes snapshots of you! The swimming pool is next to the beach, so you can avoid the strong surf. Some staffmembers understand English.

I liked the swimming pool, the leisure's activities, nice room. restaurant has quite good food, maybe not much variety. Staff is nice and they organise nice trips in the town and nearby.
The only thing that disappointed me was that they dind't speak english or very little of it...well, in such a nice resort with guests from all over the world speaking english should be the minimum!

Fantastic private beach (although not suitable for swimming) and overall great hotel 5 min by taxi away from the village centre, which can be quite busy. Great overall facilities, top standard.

The hotel is well located, only 5 min from town. The staff is very friendly and we felt very good at the hotel.
We first went to a standard room, but the AC was very noisy. Either we shut it down, and couldn't dorso with the heat, or we kept it on, and couldn't sleep with it's noise.
The front-desk quickly changed the room with a new AC, and all went well.
Very quick, very nice.
We'll get back for sure.
