Great pousada with breakfast included at the morning and a second coffee break every day in the afternoon. The room I've stayed was large with a great view of the ocean and a huge bath tub, my wife and I really enjoyed the time there.

Wonderful little pousada, convenient to the surf beach across the road or a short taxi ride to some food swimming beaches. The staff here were so friendly and helpful. One night when we felt like a night in, they suggested a pizza delivery place. While waiting for it to arrive they set up a table and plates etc for us;... More

I cannot say enough good things about this Pousada. I'll start by expressing astonishment at those reviews which were negative... baffling to me that anyone could write anything negative. The reception was utterly wonderful, the location (BEACHFRONT) spectacular, and the breakfast was marvelous... many different cakes, fresh rolls, eggs cooked to order, perfect tapicioca's, fruit, etc etc, all served by...

We loved this pousada, the location was amazing and rooms beautiful, the photo's, especially the main picture must be well out dated... Excellent WiFi, beautiful new bathrooms and very helpful staff 24/7. Loved this place.

Perfect location, just on the Praia de Maracaipe beach. Very friendly staff. Breakfast could be better. It's not very close to the city center, you will need a car. It's a quite place where you can easily relax after all day activities. There are two small swimming pools, one of them is in the front of the ocean. Waves in... More

We stayed here for 2 nights of R&R during the World Cup. The location is amazing, right on the beach - Praia de Maracaipe. This is a really beautiful beach, with some big waves, and suitable for surfing. The hotel was well equipped with 2 small pools, and the staff and breakfast were fine. One small drawback was that you... More

I traveled with my wife to Brazil for the World Cup. It was an incredible experience until we stayed at Pousada Maracabana. It ruined the end of our vacation because my wife and I both got sick from staying in a dirty, decaying property. Trickery: We booked the room through a reputable booking website. We were shocked when we got... More

This place is literally the dirtiest place I have ever stayed. I'm in shock that it has so many good reviews. I feel like the positive reviews have to be false. Let's start with the smell. The hotel smells like it is rotting from the inside out and that is probably because it is. There was black mold in our... More

We absolutely loved Maracabana just south of Porto de Galinhas. We were greeted at the liitle sand road out fron by Gustavo as the shuttle from the airport dropped us off.
