I am not an expert with beach resorts, but I was pretty happy with my stay.
This hotel looks like 10 years old, huge beach front property at the Cupe beach in Porto de Galinhas.
The pools are amazing, probably the nicest ones I ever been to.
The gardens are well cared for, with many types of palm and coconut trees, there are are hammokcs on trees in the gardens, and in the balconies.
The pools and trees are lighted at night to complement the scenario.
Common areas of the hotel are nice, clean and modern. Staff is nice and efective.
The beach right in front of the hotel is not suitable for swiming, it has strong waves and undercurrents, but I actually like it.
I enjoy the sound of the waves and the wind, I don't like beaches where the water is too still, like Muro Alto which is also located in Porto de Galinhas, and where many other resorts are.
The beach clean, safe and good for walking for miles and miles on both directions.
I just don't give the hotel an "Excellent" hotel because of the rooms. I don't really think they are compatible with a 4 star hotel rating, as the rest of the hotel is.
Rooms are quite small and simple, and showing signs of age.
Mine had a nice LED TB with plenty of cable channels, a decent split AC unit and queen size spring box bed.
The bathroom really needs an upgrade, the mirror was oxidized, the shower rusty, there shower door would not close and the whole bathroom would get wet. Also there is not exaust or window in the bathroom, and no hangers for the towels or swim suits, which makes it kinda hard to manage in a beach hotel. I had to hang my stuff in the balcony.
I had both breakfast and dinner at the hotel, and althoug the dinner was pretty expensive for the local standards (US$25/person), the food was really good and server in a clean, modern and air conditioned restaurant.
There are activities for kids during the day, and tematic dinners and shows at night, including local folk music (forró) and stand-up comedy presentations (all held in Portuguese).
I suggest you hire a "buggy" tour at the hotel, where they will take you on a 4x4 sand vehicle to know all of the beaches in Porto de Galinhas, once is nicer than the other. Try to scuba dive or snorkel at the natural pools located by Porto's main village.
Overall it was a very nice, enjoyable stay with my wife and daughter and I would definitely come back, but looking forward for a renovation in the rooms.
