Rooms: simple but comfortable. Some are newer with better floor and bathroom. Tranquility: great. just the waves and wind. Good proposal for rest. Restaurant: very good. tasty regional food and vegetarian options. Staff: polite and attentive. Overall: fair value for money with almost a private beach in front of it. Hope to come back!

Room Tip: ocean view

Porto de galinhas is paradise on Earth. Beautiful beaches, natural pools. Xales de Maracaipe is a very good pousada, located some how away from downtown. If you are looking for a peaceful, quiet and resting place this is it! It's a very large place with gardens, beach front, a medium swimming pool. Huts are comfortable with a full bed, good air conditioning (very quiet), a good bathroom. We stayed in a sea-view hut with window and a small entrance with chairs, very charm. Although the pousada is not a luxury hotel, it's very nice and you may walk around without being noticed or bothered. They offer a very good breakfast with local food (just order the waiters). The pousada is very very close to Maracaipe Pontal (5 min walk!) where you will see a breathtaking sunset!!! It is also close to the river where you may take a jangada and navigate through the mangue and see sea horse, crab and natural scenery. Maracaipe's sea is quite strong , it's a surf long place, but it's very good for walking....

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 Posadas (an air conditioner for the living room would be nice and also a microwave). WiFi connection only works at the reception, dont expect to have wifi on the Posada.

Totally recommended for couples or families.

Room Tip: Some of them have kitchen and others don't. We book the one with it.

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 my room with all the beautiful surrounding. The breakfast buffet was good (included )but I always went into town or Porto de Galinhas for lunch about R$100 a little on the pricy side. In Maracaipe you catch a small bus into Porto Galinhas for R$5 or a taxi for about R$25 or just walk a long the beach until you get there about 3km

Room Tip: I would recommend one of the free standing Xales for a little more privacy.
