Nice flat, hotel in front of the beach and at 1 kilometer by walking to Porto da Galinhas center. Secure city. Good day trip in buggy to book at the reception.
Avoid the boat trip to Maragoggi.
The staff were exceptional and did everything they could to make our stay comfortable. The rooms were clean and although the traffic was a little noisy, there was no problem to change the room.
Location, sauna in the pool
Room too small, got no help with luggage (to 4th floor), at check out had to go twice to the room to get the remote controls and the extha card key, even when the maid was there. Facility for breakfast much smaller than needed for the amount of guests.
I really liked the layout of the pousada! I loved that there was a lot of space to walk around that you don’t get in a lot of hotels and I liked the swimming pool area too with plenty of chairs to relax. The breakfast was really good and provided a lot of different options. The fact that the pousada was right next to the beach was also great and even had a sun lounge area raised up with a view of the sea. I liked that we had a little table outside our room on our balcony so we could sit and drink wine and play cards whilst listening to the ocean waves. The room cleaning was also very efficient and we came back to a lovely clean room and bathroom every day.
Booking.com needs to have more photos with regards to the different room options. When I booked this pousada specifically for our honeymoon, I thought I was booking a first floor chalet room with a hammock outside and a spacious living area... when we arrived, we were taken to an apartment area with a door that entered via a corridor overlooking the main road. Now when I booked the room, I was only showed photos of the inside, the website pictures have no indication of the difference between the apartments and the chalets so when we arrived I was obviously disappointed. The description on the pousada profile didn’t give much indication about the different price points and thus the different grades of rooms available. After speaking to the booking staff and the manageress, they very kindly agreed to give us an upgrade to the chalet room for the same price, so I was happy in the end. Our air con also broke on the second night so we were awake between 1am-4am with water dripping directly onto our bed. The pousada was very efficient and the air con was fixed within the day whilst we were out so could have been worse. I felt for the price that the fridge could have been less ancient with less rusty shelves and other little details could have been taken better care of.
The cleaning staff and the restaurant staff was friendly, massage was perfect and the view from the balcony was unreal.
We were here 2 years ago, and we liked it. It's changed a bit.. The reception crew is not very friendly, nobody speaks English at the whole hotel, other English speaking guests had to help us, they did no efforts at trying to understand us. The cleaning lost our baby's chupeta and nobody even tried to find it, and he only likes just that one.
