We stayed with the family for 7 days there. The place is amazing, leads straight into the beach (its the Surfers beach so quite big waves). The staff is really friendly and always helpful. The only thing that didnt make it to the 5 stars is that theres only 1 swimming pool and quite small. Also some opportunities in the...

We visited Maracaipe to have a relaxing weekend. The "xales" are really simple but well taken care, with kitchen and comfortable furniture. The breakfast has many different options including regional food. The best of this pousada definitely is the view... Facing a beatiful sea, with different little places to relax and really inspirational decoration everywhere.

This place in situated between two great beaches not to mention the beach in front of you so you have plenty of variety and won't be bored. The grounds at the Xale are well maintained and very peaceful and tranquil. Rooms are a little on the rustic side (at least mine was) but I didn't go their to stay in...

Arrived in the evening after 22:00hrs and the night watchman, Senior Antonio was there to greet us with a huge smile and the key to our room. We went straight to sleep lulled by the waves breaking on the shoreline and awoke in the morning by birds singing and water lapping on the shore. What a beautiful grey morning as...

They give you a small house, with a functional kitchen, a dinner and rooms: if you go with over 2 people, you want to do your groceries and save on cooking, this is your place. But if you are as a couple and you want a hotel level service, this is not your cookie: beware of the mosquitoes (I agree...

Amazing to have the joy of experience such a paradising beach with a carefull staff in Xales de Maracaípe. The negative point is related to insects, but nothing that the place itself don't surpass by it beauty.

This would be qualified as less than one star hotel and a little above a South American hostal: floors of bricks, no hot water, a lot of mosquitoes (probably due to the animals' dung all around the place), only cash and located after a very scary looking shanty town. The first night my girlfriend and I had to fight an...

We stayed here for 3 nights and overall it was fantastic. The chalets are very basic, but they are clean. Elene, who works at the desk, is wonderful. She is fluent in English, arranged a number of taxis for us, was very knowledgeable and could not have been more helpful. Have the hotel arrange your pick-up from the airport. It...

My friend and I chose this as our last destination after 3 weeks in South America. We were hoping for it to be a relaxing place to restore ourselves before we flew back to the United States. We found it to be just that - quiet, peaceful, and relaxing. They even have an onsite massage therapist - who does a...
