My Brasilian brother-in-law found this "pousada" on the internet, while searching for an affordable place to stay for one night on our long drive from Fortaleza back to Recife. Three of us shared one Chalet - my wife and I in a queen bed in the loft, and meu cunhado slept down below in 1 of 2 twin beds. Privacy would have been an issue if this were an extended stay, but for one night it was just perfect. The individual chalets are configured differently for different sized families/parties. After discovering this little paradise we would have loved to stay another night, but we had a birthday party to get to in Recife, so we'll just have to plan another visit next time we're in Brasil.

It's difficult to describe how beautiful the setting is at "Mirante de Pipa", and even their own website doesn't accurately convey its charm and appeal. First of all, you feel as if you are staying in an intimate little jungle village atop a densely forrested hill overlooking the turquoise tropical sea. Your own private chalet in this shady village is both romantically rustic and modernly equipped with AC, ceiling fans, mini-fridge, balcony with table, chairs, & hammock, outdoor shower and locking safe inside. Mirante de Pipa has an outdoor "gameroom" with pool table & ping pong (not even mentioned on their website), as well as the most gorgeous breakfast veranda you'll find in the northeast of Brasil. Your servers here in the morning excel in making you feel at home

From your private bungalow, it's a mere 5-minute walk into the adorable town of Pipa, chock-full of restaurants, hand-crafted souvenir shops, & pousadas. Also a 10-15 minute walk from the hilltop brings you to some magnificent beaches. Ask at the front desk, or at breakfast, where to get the trail to "Praia do Amor" - You won't be disappointed.

Around the grounds at "Mirante" you'll see all sorts of native plants with hand-painted wooden tags identifying them by name. You may also spot many different birds and if you're lucky catch a glimpse of a monkey or two. They abound here like grey squirrels do in the northeastern U.S.

If you're reading this review, and you plan to be anywhere near Pipa in the coming months, do yourself a favor and book a chalet at Mirante de Pipa immediately for at least 2 or 3 nights. You'll be so glad you did. Your hosts there will also be so grateful you came and make you feel so welcome.

Room Tip: If you want a private room, get your own chalet. Ones that sleep multiple people don't have door...

quiet place on a woody hillside, clos to the centre of Pipa. The chalets are nicely equipped and guest's privacy is important for the owners, Hammocks on the varanda. Spacy rooms. Excellent breakfast with a view of the sea. From the top of the hill, where there are several stops on the way up with tables and benches, there is a fantastic view of the coast and the town. A nice sunset. Walking trail to Praia dos Amores - the best beach if you want to get awat from the crowded and noisy beach in town.

Room Tip: each chalet is different and every one has its special touch.

We stayed here for four days in November, 2011 and are happy to say that if you're looking for a great place to stay while visiting Pipa this is the place. The apartment rooms are great and include nice little touches like a hammock on the veranda and candles if you're looking for a relaxing night at home. The breakfast served in the morning is superb with a choice of main meals (omelettes etc) along with continental breakfast servings including toast, ham, cheese, fruits, nuts, yoghurt and coffee. There was so much we took a doggy bag back to the apartment fridge to enjoy later. While eating in the sea view dining area you may see a family of monkeys which you can feed which, obviously, is great if that's your thing.

The staff are very friendly and can answer (in English if, like me, Portuguese isn't your main language) any queries you may have. I could be wrong but it feels like a family owned business and the staff are very eager to make sure your stay is a pleasant one.

If I were to return to this place the Mirante de Pipa would be, without doubt, the first place I'd try for vacancies.

Pipa was the last destination on our roadtrip, and we were very happy to stay at Mirante da Pipa. The place is surrounded by trees and the chales are very charming. We were welcomed by lots of monkeys playing on our veranda when we arrived. Breakfast was great, lots of fresh fruit and served at the table. The view from the breakfast area is amazing, because you are a little higher up you see the entire bay. Thanks to Hector and his staff for a great stay!

Me and my husband stayed in Mirante de Pipa last month and enjoyed very much! It´s very close to beach, 5 minutes walking to main street (Baia dos Golfinhos) where you can find good restaurants, markts, stores, handcrafts...They serve a good breakfast direct in your table with amazing view, the staff is very carefull and the chalet sea view is cozy and confortable!
Tip: Do not miss the sunset in the "mirante" inside the pousada..... incredible!

Stayed for a week in a room (Chalet) with a breathtaking sea view. (Not all rooms have this view).
Nice room, well cared, everything works, bathroom in pristine conditions.
Hotel is located on top a hill, with a great view from the town (PIPA) and the sea.
You don't need a car to get to the commerce street or the central beaches.
Perfect place to stay and relax. Enjoy Pipa!!!
