“Paradise on earth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2010

My wife and I spent a few days at Village in Porto de Galinhas in July. It was our second stay there (we were there for our honeymoon in August 2006). It was amazing!. Again!
We live in the USA and we travel often. We are used to high quality hotels. Village did not disappoint us a bit.
We stayed in one of the beach front bungalows. We could hear the ocean from our bet, and see it from the little veranda. The room was clean, very comfortable, and very tastefully decorated. We had a flat screen TV which was nice, but we did not stay in the room much at all (nobody I know does, at Porto). We had out 6 months old baby, and the friendly hotel staff went out of their way to make sure all his needs were met. For example, they had a little baby tub delivered to our room, in addition to setting up a crib for him. We were so close to the beach and the swimming pool (there are so many in the hotel, that it is impossible to stay far from a swimming pool!), that we would leave our baby napping in the room, while we sat by the beach or pool with our baby monitor. The pools in the hotel are so well designed - a fit for any taste. We stayed by the closest one to the beach, with the pool bar. Amazing drinks. So relaxing. In other areas, there are activities for the kids and families (a hotel staff runs the entertainment and engages kids and parents in games and activities). We stayed out of those - we just wanted to relax and enjoy the sun and beautiful scenery.
The restaurant at the hotel was great - we particularly recommend you try the fresh fish (I mean fresh) with shrimp sauce - just delicious! But I also encourage you to explore one of Porto de Galinhas' wonderful restaurants (Beijupira' is like nothing you have tried before). The taxi ride to Porto takes less than 5 minutes.
In other words, our stay was perfect in every respect. I would strongly recommend this hotel - they really take pride in what they do!

The hotel is average - i guess you could fine a clone in any destination of caribbean islands. Certanily not a typical decoration or architecture, but a least you have good accomodation and air conditionner!
Try to avoid the restaurant, you'll find much better around
Staff friendly and professional, great beach and excellent beverages (thanks to skoll and freshly made suco de limao :)
Swimming pool is very ok, with basket ball nets and small pool for kids
enough activities and visits to do around to really enjoy the trip.

conclusion: good hotel, better to have a lot of excursions and visits.

The hotel is not bad but there is some problems.
First of all, the hotel is the middle of nothing. In fact, this is very far away Porto de Galinhas besides the name. Walking on the beach is the best option to go, return by taxi.
Food is not really worth to have dinner everyday at the hotel.
Television Control did not function at all.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2007

This was my second trip to Brazil, but my first "vacation" experience in Brazil. We decided to stay at Villages after our Brazilian friends highly recommended it. We wanted a vacation that was not typical for a Canadian couple - we wanted to feel like we were really "away". (not an all inclusive Cuba, Mexico, or Dominican resort).

Villages was superiour from A to Z. Check in was efficient & friendly. There was one lady who was fluent in English (sorry forgot her name!) so we continued to talk to her at reception whenever we needed anything.

The room was very clean, simple, cosy, close to the beach, facing the pool. The a/c was great.
We used their laundry service which was very cheap and efficient.

The beach was to die for! It was very very deep, quiet, lots of wind. There are many waves, so it's not possible to swim. Close by you could go for the piscine natural (natural pools created by corals) and there you could swim in a natural warm pool.

This place is amazing for those who just want to relax. Granted though, we went in March, which is not high season.

Loved the place, and would love to go back. I recently saw their new website, and the pictures are EXACTLY what the place looks like.
