We stayed at the pousada for 5 days and it was a dream come true. The staff is very attentive yet easygoing. The food is amazing, with beautiful presentation. We stayed in the Bananeira do Jardim, and the hot tub in the semi-private backyard was awesome. The decor is super comfortable and rustic in a modern way. They lend you bikes for free, and we made plenty use of them during our stay. The breakfast is well-served and delicious. The beach in front of the pousada is clean and deserted - you can float in the calm waters for awhile before someone passes by. Kudos to the owners and the "equipe" - we will be going back to this gem once more for sure. Though it's hard not to enjoy a place like São Miguel dos Milagres anyhow, staying at Amendoeira really made our trip worthwhile.

Room Tip: Bananeira do Jardim has the semi-private backyard, though no one will ever walk in. The fence around it is a bit see-through. Either way, this room is highly recommended because of the hot tub. It is the closest to the main room and reception, but we weren't bothered by noise or anything. And I was able to get a bit of wifi in there.

Hummingbirds sip hibiscus nectar as sea breezes tickle your skin under golden pink sunset blah blah blah. For us it it's all just a pretty backdrop for meal after meal of serious gourmet food. Breakfast muffins as fluffy and moist as you get at a first-rate bakery; fresh rolls, fresh butter, fresh jams. Top ten queijo coalho. Gentle tropical waves beckoning at your doorstep blah blah blah. With the açaí you get as much rustic, nutty granola as fruit itself. Pitchers of fresh juices and coconut water. Sandwiches on thick slices of soft, yeasty, home-baked bread. Cicadas and crickets under a moon peeking through palm fronds blah blah blah. You won't stay enough nights to get through the long menu of unique and inventive dishes that include Thai, Indian, and Middle Eastern-inspired options alongside regional classics in healthy portions with quality ingredients starring local fresh seafood. We tried something new every night and couldn't pick a favorite. Every meal was five-star. The service was the perfect balance of professional and informal, friendly without ever being fussy. The setting is eco-rustic (twigs for towel hooks, soap with oxo-biodegradable packaging), but the standards are world-class. There is no sacrificing comfort, with fluffy white towels and crisp, perfumed linens on dreamy beds. On top of all this, the lovely owners work hard to support the local community, sponsoring an environmental educational organization (Instituto Yande), and women's handicraft collective (making adorable stuffed peixe bois), both of which are within walking distance in the village. The location may seem out of the way (which is really the attraction), but their recommended taxi driver goes at least as far south as Maceio and as far north as Olinda, the two nearest cities with airports. That makes the transfers easy so you have no excuse. Our only complaint is that we had to leave.

Finally getting round to review this gem... we were here for 5 nights in July 2012 with our 8-month old son and it was one of the highlights of our trip. Jessy and Tsarri and all the staff are such lovely hosts. The bungalow and deck area and hammocks are fantastic, as is the food and all the special "touches" of art and decor. Well worth the price, which, like most of Brazil these days, can feel high. The beach is amazing, the whole area still untouched. Go there before too much development kicks in!

This is a small branch of Paradise available here. A deserted beach, transparent water, few people and a professional and nice staff to help you. Excellent food, some small cabins without much on them, but who needs anything when beach is only a (literally) few steps away?
Good food, large breakfast and silence. There's nothing much I can say but perfection. Place and hotel perfectly combined. Just go there.

I've travelled a lot and know many "pousadas" in Brazil, but Amendoeira is the best I've stayed. It's situated in a beautiful and calm beach of Alagoas, one of the most special places I've been in my country. I hope it keeps calm. And Amendoeira is a home away from home: the owners are just like our friends, the service is perfect, the staff nice and always available to make your stay even more enjoyable. Rooms (we've stayed in two different rooms, the small and the medium) are great, confortable, with DVD, amenities, good shower and - very important - fresh and clean. But the best thing about Amendoeira is their people, the view, the shadow of the trees and the food. The food there is amazing, every night is a experience, trying to find out what to eat...everything is good. I mean it - I tried all the plates there. And they also have good wines to pair with food, not to mention incredible drinks. We've been twice there and certainly will come back.

Room Tip: If you can afford, try the rooms with ocean view. But all bangalos are great.
