Pousada Tabapitanga
Ranked #3 of 26 Hotels in Porto de Galinhas
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 February 2012

Overall, hotel is comfortable, clean and located at the beach. Like Brazilians like to say: "pé-na-areia" (foot in sand). Not so close to downtown Porto de Galinhas, which, in my opinion is awesome. However, you will need to rent a car or call a cabe everytime you want do leave the hotel.

Pros:
1. Location. It is close to the highway and far from downtown. So, you feel like being in a paradise, with few people around and easy access to other beaches in Porto de Galinhas - which I hardly recommend you to know.
2. Room size. Rooms are comfortable and can fit well up to 2 people, with one queen size bed, a chair, a standard bathroom, tv with cable, snacks and refrigerator.
3 Room service, restaurant and complimentary breakfast. Food is awesome. You can choose either the buffet service or to choose a la carte. Menu is full of Brazilian specials. You will always find something you like.
4. Swimming-pool, bar and beach service. One word: Great! Several options in the menu both for eating or drinking. Place is very well maintained.
5. Staff. Friendly and ready-to-help.
6. Live music on Saturday night. Unexpected and astonishing.

Cons:
1. Sheets. Pillows and mattress are comfortable, but not the high thread count sheets travelers are used to see worldwide.
2. Paid internet wireless. Internet is fast and reliable. However, it is not complimentary! Nowadays, it is a shame for the price.
3. Stains and cobweb. We have to remember that it is a small hotel facility at the beach and among the trees. However, there were stains and cobweb in the bathroom. Staff could take a better look to it whenever cleaning the place.

Just enjoy it! However, I do not recommend you to go with children. They may be bored, unless you spend the whole day out of the hotel and come back at night to rest.

Room Tip: If you can pay a little extra money, do not hesitate to choose a room with ocean view.

Would like to say what a great stay for our honeymoon we had here at hotel tabapitanga! The staff here are so friendly and helpfull and will always greet you with a smile and hello. Carol the manager, speaks fluent English which is off great help too. I see people have complained about the distance to the centre of Porto de galinhas.... All I have to say is "read the brouchure" . The location is great, far enough away from the hussle and bussle of the town. The rooms are spacious and clean, the food is great and the service is too. Would defenitly recomend to friends and family!

We had a wonderful time at the Tabapitanga,
what a beautiful place, quiet & tranquil with a beautiful beach, lovely food & very friendly staff. The Manageress Carol speaks fluent English and is very helpful. A lovely town is just a short taxi drive away.
A holiday to remember

Although I stayed at this place almost 5 years ago, I was checking their website again and saw it looks even better! I've always wanted to go back to Porto de Galinhas, but only if I could stay at this hotel. The food was one of the best I've ever tried in hotels at the beach in Brazil; the staff is more than helpful. There's happiness in the air when you're there. The rooms are nice, clean, the location is excellent, away from the noise from the village. It's just you, the sun, the ocean. I spend Christmas there, and one thing that amazed me was that, in spite of being in Bahia, the soundtrack was jazz!! I loved it! No axé bands...no singers screaming in my ears...for seven days, it was Sinatra, is friends and some classic jazz. Unforgettable Christmas!

I've been many times to Porto de Galinhas and certainly there are better hotels in town. The location, in Praia do Cupe, it is convenient for those who have a car, but it is far to walk to the center. The decor is pleasant, the breakfast is good but not great compared to other hotels in the city. Could return, but only if the price were lower.

This is a great location, right on the beachfront. it's not a big resort and you are about 6K from the village, so it really was pretty quiet on the beach.
Rooms are basic but spacious, and it's a friendly, informal place.
It was a nice relaxing end to a holiday.
I think we were the only foreign tourist in the whole town though - you will need some basic spanish /portuguese to get by.

Cozy and romantic pousada!!! Very nice and helpful staff!! We stayed there with my husband, my sister and her partner in november for 2 weeks.The rooms are simple but clean. It's a very calm place where we relaxed and ejoyed the beautiful beach!!We had ocean front bungalows. It was just beautyful. The breakfast was perfect with a lot of various food!!! Porto de Gallinhas is about 5 km away. But no problem, the nice staff from the reception wil organize you a taxi whenever you need. A big thank you to all the nice staff to make us feel home!!!!
