“Beautiful and relaxing vacation at Maracaipe beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

We stayed at the Maleleo B&B for 9 nights and would definitely recommend it! The little chalets that Lorena and her husband are renting are really sweet and the breakfast is marvellous!

There are just some things you have to consider when you stay here:

1) The pousada is located on Maracaipe beach that is a 25 - 30 minutes beach walk from Porto de Galinhas, restaurants and bars are open during the day, but you better stay in Porto in the evening. Transportation is organized by Lorena (she knows a buggy driver called Sergio who will bring you to PdG for only 10 Reais!!!).

2) The sea is very rough, we did not bother to go into the water, but the beach is nice and the sunbeds in front of the pousada are relaxing - only the traffic on the beach road that separates the pousada from the beach is sometimes a bit annoying (especially at the weekend)

3) The Maleleo is also home to many cats and dogs, so don't be afraid of these animals

4) The neighbors like to party at the weekend and they start to play loud music at 10 o clock in the morning (and stop around 3 or 4 in the night)!!! So if you like it quiet bring some earplugs :o)

Other from the above mentioned facts we really felt very welcome and Lorena is the perfect host. She gave us a lot of tips and printed information about the area and Recife for us. She mixed us drinks when her employee was not around, she made sure we got fresh towels for our trip to Maragogi and did a lot of other things to make us feel comfortable.

So we definitely recommed to stay there if you like to experience something special and not the usual boring 4 star hotel accommodation...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2011

We stood at Maleleo Bed and Breakfast for two nights.
It is almost at the end of the Maracaipe beach, 3km form Porto de Galinas.
We decided to stay here because Porto de Galinas is really a touristic place so nice for one night (dinner, hanghing around, drinks and shopping) but not to sleep at.....
Lorena, the owner is a very nice lady and, booking with one day advice she can cook for you and you can eat in the beautifull bristo.
Breakfast is just great, the best we had in all our Brasilian trip.
We chose the "house in the forest", a great palce truly hidden into the beautifull garden of the B&B.
If you go there don't miss the Ippocampus trip that starts just 5 minutes more south where the river hits the sea.
