Well situation in Pipa on bluff overlooking Bai do Galfinhos. However, due to cliff erosion, trees and vegetation have been planted which obstruct views. Only 10 min walk into town which is nice because you can escape the noise at night and retreat back to the hotel. Hotel is tired and lacks finishing touches. Has changed ownership several times over... More

Liked our stay but it was basic, the rooms are ok/good and breakfast buffet is also nice. What we didn't like is the internet that really did not work and they do nothing to fix this since a lot of reviews are saying this. It's also just a bit too far from walking to the town. Overall friendly and nice... More

Nice place, rooms are big with good beds. Every day cleaning, pool is big with space for small kids and adults. Breakfast buffet, with fresh fruit, nice coffee but also European style. A personal safe is available for all your valuables. Close to the hotel are nice beaches with dolphins at one side. The town is just 200 meters away... More

Nice place to stay in Pipa! Restaurant and pool side very arranged! My only complaint os regarding the room! The size is perfect but the way that it's arranged is very poor! If you want to use a laptop, there is no proper table for that! No doors separating the bathroom to the bedroom! Poor sink! There is a very... More

Some of the people there speak English, the others speak Portuguese. But they all are eager to help you with everything. The rooms are standard, but there are also some really nice and luxury suites available. The breakfast, I would recommend to stay with the delicious cakes and fruits. For kids it's great, it's close to the beach and there... More

This little resort is getting it together, the food is nice, the cottages is spacious, and the poolerea is very nice. It would be nice for non Brazillian guests to have a few staff that comunicates in English, The same is true for the menues, they need english translations.

This place has all the potential but is going down hill. The room was dirty with a cockroach in the bathroom, the sheets did not even fit the huge bed and it had so much dust on it, we could not sleep at all. it was definitely cheap but not worth the low price. I would not recommend this hotel... More

The hotel is beautiful , with a fantastic view of the ocean. The rooms are very nice, but sadly lacking general maintenance , ranging from air conditioning that is weak and no freezes, to the shower that does not heat.

Pros:Grounds and pool area were LOVELY (and I thought very clean). The location was terrific, just a nice 8 minute walk to the center of Pipa means that Pipa Ocean View felt quiet and secluded. Staff was nice, spoke many languages and were helpful. Bed was comfortable and rooms large. We stayed for 8 days during the World Cup and... More
