First, let me say that the staff was very cordial and always ready to be of help with plans and taxis. They carried the baggage up to the second floor, since there are no elevators. An act for which I was thankful given the weight of my suitcase. Other positives include a stocked frigobar, balcony with a hammock to enjoy the wonderful sea breeze that was always present, and a comfortable bed. The minor negatives include visits from large tree ants and some other small insects that found access into the room. During the day I could see daylight between the boards in the rather rustic, room entry door. The room key which was a metal key connected to a large plastic piece, had to be inserted into the door lock and turned in order to lock the entry door; however, the electricity in the room would not come on until the plastic piece was inserted into a energy saving fixture mounted on the wall. This meant that the door had to be locked in the dark before you could turn on the lights. Also, the plastic piece had a magnet inside which meant that you couldn't just "fool" the energy fixture into energizing the room lights. No in-room safe, except for the third floor rooms seemed strange. Breakfast is rather limited, but what you would expect at a pousada. In addition to the typical items they do offer hot items including scrambled eggs, cheese bread (pão de queijo) and tapioca. The tapioca in Brazil, if you've never tried it, is nothing like tapioca pudding. In Brazil, tapioca is in granular form and is poured out on a hot plate where it "melts" together and somewhat resembles a white crepe. It is then filled with items such as ham, cheese, grated coconut, etc. then is folded over into a half round shape and cooked more. The affordable rate is the biggest draw; of course, you trade away convenience due to the location on the outskirts of where you will want to be when visiting Porto de Galinhas. The Natural Pools are a good 15 minute walk, as is hiking to the town center for the shops and restaurants. As another reviewer mentioned, you will only want to walk on the road during the day as there are few lights at night and traffic makes it dangerous. The waves at the beach nearest the pousada were quite rough and this section appears to be mostly of interest for surfing, with few people in the water swimming. The Rs10 taxi that the pousada will call for you will not take you to the center of town, but rather on the edge and you will need to walk another 5 minutes to reach where the activity is located. Pay an additional Rs5 and they will drive you the extra distance and drop you where you really want to be. The Natural Pools are basically only accessible within 1.5 to 2 hours of low tide, so be sure to download an app or find a website that provides the daily low tide times. Many of the locals seem to be somewhat out of touch with the tide times (one even claimed that you can start visiting the pools at a time which turned out to be 15 minutes before high tide????). From the time you leave the pousada plan on half an hour at least to walk to town, buy your passage and then walk to the jungadas (flat hull sail boats) that will take you to the pools in the reef. If you are looking for a place that is away from the crowds, want an affordable room and don't mind the distance this is an acceptable choice.…
This place is great! Carlos, the owner comes to greet you outside and is personally at your service all along your stay! Clean room and bathroom, nice mattress, great view, excellent location, close to the centre of the vila but again not in the noisy part. Excellent breakfast. Loved every bit of my stay! I highly recommend it! I stayed on the third floor at the corner of the building with the ocean view in one side and the sunset on the other.
The pousada is very comfortable, the rooms are big enough. My bedroom had a balcony with a hammock and a big bathroom. Breakfast is very good and the staff is really really friendly. The issue that I found is the big distance to the centre. I think it's fine to walk during the day, but at night it's too dark and I guess not safe. The pousada doesn't offer dinner (you can order pizza) so you would go to the centre to eat. By car, it's a nightmare! Too crowded and you can spent a long time looking for a space to park the car. I recommend the pousada, but would rather stay somewhere in the centre, to avoid the walk/drive to and from the centre.
We stayed here for three nights and had a wonderful time. The owner went above and beyond to make our stay as comfortable as he could. The breakfast service is very good with a great variety of home cooked treats every morning. It's a 15mins walk to the centre of the village but the walk by the beach is beautiful.
The little hotel is walking distance from the beach, all rooms have ovean view and breakfast includes all the basics plus Brazilian typicals, such as "tapiocas", "pão-de-queijo" and fresh exotic fruit juice. Rooms and big and clean. Drawbacks: it is not safe to walk to and from the village in the evening, there are no restaurants nearby to have dinner. But it's possible to order room service, delivery pizza, sandwiches and other types of food, staff are very helpfull providing those. When you go to the beach during the day, you have to walk 5 to 10 minutes to reach the bars and restaurants where you can eat, drink and use beach chairs, umbrellas and tables at a not very reasonable price during holliday season. I believe prices are better when it's not summer in Brazil.
