“The best of Pipa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

If you are considering on going to be happy, this is the right place on earth. The beach is amazing with dolphins,(baía dos golfinhos) specially on mornings when they come back and swim with surfers (yes!!!) and at the end of afternoon, when we see them from up the hill ( about 200 steps from the sea level) where is this nice hotel situated. Rooms (chalés) are sensational. Be nice to you and pick the ones that have ocean view please...you wont regret that. Food is divine as well. Massage place is so welcome and you can even reserve dinner at a private room...so romantic!
Worth every real R$ spent in there.

Room Tip: ocean view.

We stayed 9 days at this hotel end February and I want to share this great experience: the site of the hotel by the cliffs provides an extraordinary setting, with the sea being a constant and ever changing presence. The beach bar and mini-restaurant is a bonus. All hotel employees from the front desk up to the young waiters are extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel's locaiton provides the necessary distance from the small town (Pipa) to provide for quietness and relax and if you want to go there for shopping or dining the hotel van takes you there. Conclusion: if you are planning to go to Pipa that's the place to stay!

The rooms are nice and clean.. nothing too fancy but the AC worked really well, the shower was very strong and could get really hot if you wanted to. The water is solar heated during the day. The breakfast was just delicious, with lots of different cakes and fruit juices - not to mention the local tapioca. We had lobster one night, sea food risotto on another and the food was delicious. The location is just amazing - is close enough to Pipa in case you want to walk around the town or try a different restaurant, but also is far enough to have the hotel beach all for the hotel guests. We went in high season and we never felt crowded. It was wonderful! And definetely a great cost/benefit.

It is a very quiet hotel, with a wonderfool overlooking a beautiful beach. The breakfast is very good, so the restaurant. The personal is very kind and helpfull. All the hotel has a nice design with a lot of details. The room is spacious and the bed is big and confortable. There are a good beachservice. It is not recommended for people with mobility problems because to reach the beach you must go down a long staircase.

This is a nice hotel, but all these raving reviews, leave me inclined to add some balance and truth.
I stayed here for a week. The location is fab on cliffs overlooking a beautiful beach, which as mentioned elsewhere requiring huge stamina to acces.
The beds are rock hard and not good/ cheap, which is a shame because the location is so nice. The floor staff are very kind and accomodating. The breakfast was good, and the barman makes great drinks. The bathroom smelled of sewer, which i remedied with daily spraying of perfume.
As with most hotels this one is a lttle too obsessed with making money over customer service, and that is a shame. Ifthey were to remove the rusty refrigerators in the rooms, and buy nice beds it would actually be the nice place that people say it is!

We stayed for a week and all reviews that I read before booking this hotel were completely right. We were very well received at the reception and we were offered and upgrade to a luxury room. It had a balcony. Room was comfortable with a small frigobar. Every day beach towels were changed (a guy came every day at 6pm to make the change).
Breakfast was included and it was also very good. Many fruits, different juices, cakes and pastries. Eggs were not that good, but you could ask for fresh ones to be prepared and were very good. Tables had a great view so it was very nice to have breakfast there.
The food at the restaurant was excellent. Nice variety of things and very good quality.
The best of the hotel is the service. The hotel staff is always willing to help and they make an effort to speak spanish or english.
The hotel has a very nice pool and rooms are surrounded with trees. There's a monkey family that leaves next to the pool and you can see all kinds of birds, iguanas, etc.
To get to the beach you have to take the stairs (196 steps).Climbing back requires an effort but it is worthy. Beach is very nice, quite and it has a bar there with also good variety of food an beverages.
There's a shuttle service to the small town of pipa.
Internet is only available in the restaurant and lobby area and it is not very good. Just enough to surf the web but forget to try to see a video on your screen.
So, overall it was just perfect. You must stay there!

We spent seven days on this wonderful hotel. We arrived at 2:00 am. The staff was waiting for us and we had a plate of fruit for us on the bungalow.
The next day we had the oportunity to see the stunning view over Madeiro beach.
The bungalows are located in the middle of the nature and the hotel has a private beach.
The room was big and always clean and the bed was kingsize.
During our stay the staff was always very warmful and they even knew our names.
The service was just excellent!
