Our first stay was in 2012 and 4 more stays followed - each as agreeable as the others. It’s rare that an establishment manages to preserve its original vibe - and we’re very grateful that it does. We will be back!

This was our 3rd time at Vila Selvagem, the hotel is a charming villa on a almost desert beach. But the most incredible thing here is the service: the crew is the same since first time, they are smiling funny smart local young people, that find joy in all they do. If you really want to relax and enjoy amazing caipirinhas all day, this is the place for you.

I went there several times with my friends and this is where we had the best food during our trip in Pontal de maceio I had the octopus which were amazing and I also tried the raviolis, a classic choice but it was well made and good. I recommend you to stop at the bar before and order caipirinhas, the bartender is a master in the art of preparing them. You can also eat a few pasteis as a starter.

I checked in with my family (wife, 2 kids - 2 and 7 years old) on July 9 - 20 2018 and it was the best thing I ever did. If you’re looking to relax close to the beach, this is the place to be. I got a superior room with ocean view, which is good since it’s not an apartment and there’s no noise from next door neighbour. Rooms are great !! Some features I liked it: * Hard wood floor * Really good bed and sheets * Expresso Machine OK * Good choice of drinks in the minibar * I highlight the water with Ph of 8.0 (I’m a water junkie) * Well ventilated and good amount of light from the Sun and the lamps. Since this is a “Wild Villa” as it’s names suggest, be prepared to encounter some animals like frogs jumping around. Bugs in the room is rare, but it happened to me once. TV channels options are excellent !! I watched the entire Tour the France and the World Cup Finals in the room with HD quality.. Really good. Internet is Ok. Not super Fast, but Ok. Only 3G network coverage in the region. Food Is amazing. Really good quality and awesome presentation. Staff is super friendly and well prepared. The beach is really good for the kids. When it’s low tide, there’s mini pools everywhere and my kids kept jumping on them. It helpd us to get a calm night, since some much energy were spent on the beach. Hotel offers beach chairs, but they were not enough for everybody to chill out. They need more chair on the beach. I had to take one of my kids to a doctor for a flu and staff were great to find me a close by and good doctor in the region. Which were in the next city Aracati. Overall it was an amazing experience ! I will definitely come back next year !! My only request for the owner is to lower a little bit the price for food in the restaurant. It’s a bit salty !!
