We have spent 10 nights in this wonderful place in the apartment #26. Everything was perfect starting from the garden to the beach where the see in August is super fun because of the waves. The apartment was spacious and clean. Restaurant was good with very reasonable price. Everyone in the Pousada was kind and supportive. Always smiling and helpful. Definitely a place to stay and to avoid Porto de Galinha which is nice but crowded.

This charming hotel has bungalow style chalés in its spacious and well cared for gardens and is on the beach in Maracaipe. It’s the perfect place to relax either on the georgous beach or in a hammock in the hotel. The staff are very friendly and are always willing to help and offer recommendations of things to see and do. Highly recommended.

This is the perfect place for some peace and quiet, away from the busy touristy Porto de Galinhas but just a quick drive away from popular attractions. The pousada is rustic and cute, well cared for. The rooms are very simple but super clean. It's teuly on the beach so you can go for a walk when the tide is low or just sit on a hammock and watch the waves. We can't say enough about the staff, every single one greets you with a smile and ate always ready to help. We had our two kids with us, ages 12 and 10. To accommodate the four of us we had the Casa Haras, a small house with 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. The kids loved the pool, it's not huge but works well with the number of guests. The food at the restaurant is pretty good so eating there is always an option. We had a guy called Vadinho pick us up at the airport, take us to town when we wanted to eat out or go visit the natural pools on a jangada. He also has a buggy so we went to Cupe and Morro Alto with him. The Xalés de Maracaípe work with him. We recommend!
