Rustic bungalows on the Carneiros beach, two hours south of Recife. It's a nice beach, although it can get packed and crazy on weekends and holidays. The hotel itself is nice, but needs some work before I would go back. First is the wifi -- it doesn't work. They give you a password, but there is no signal strength. Relax,... More

I really shocked how this "resort" got 4 1/2 stars on tripadvisor and 8.8 on booking.com! The Bungalows are old and dirty!! And all in all absolutely hideous! It's definitely not the standard for such a expensive resort!!! The breakfast is loveless!! The beach is full of tourist and beach shops!!! Absolutely not natural!!! Please don't book it!!

Comfortable bungalows spread among the coconut trees. Loved the hammocks for daily siestas and the great pool overlooking beach and ocean. Several beach bars to enjoy relaxing lunches with great views. White sandy beach for healthy strolls every day. Warm ocean with a reef for perfect swimming. We enjoyed all aspects of our stay at this very special resort.

It's a perfect place. The beach is one of the most beautiful in Brazil. The only place more beautiful is Fernando de Noronha, so you won't find anything better in the continent. The hotel is amazing. Several bungalows, that stay apart, so you can have a lot of privacy. The rooms are huge and very pleasant and confortable. The swimming... More

There is nothing to do here. It is heaven. There is only the turquoise blue sea to swim in, soft sand to lay on, a hammock between the palm trees to swing in, and your own personal tropical aquarium to snorkel in. Wish I was there now!

We stayed for a week and had a wonderful time. Spacious bungalow accommodation, with 2 varandas and a hammock just for you (which I absolutely love). A/C works wonderfully, bed is very comfortable, flat screen TV with DVD player, jacuzzi tub, amazing breakfast... what else do you need to be happy?

We were here in April for 4 days in the 3 bd/2 bath bungalow with my partner and 2 other couples. I never felt like we were on top of one another. The space was adequately furnished but needed a little TLC. It had a functional kitchen that was fairly well stocked with what you'd need for light meals but... More

We weren't sure what we would find in Pontal dos Carneiros. Fortunately we were very happily surprised by how enjoyable the hotel is. Located in the best beach in Carneiros, Pontal is the only hotel on this pristine beach. Comfortable bungalows are scattered in a beautiful grass field. You will find plenty of great spaces to just quietly lounge about.... More
