Pousada Estrela de Gaibu has an amazing location - directly on the beach front at Gaibu, one of the nicest beaches close to Recife, away from the sharks and easily accessible from the city. You can hear the waves at night, and precious little else, so tranquil and relaxing is this lovely pousada. The owner, Lucia, is incredibly warm and welcoming, and puts on a marvellous breakfast which can be taken on the verandah overlooking the beach. Beachfront cafes provide a range of local foods, and the nearby restaurant Opara is the best in town for sumptuous lunches and evening meals. Thoroughly recommended. More

Stopped in Gaibu with the intention of staying one night and a local directed me to this pousada. Because of the charm of the pousada and Gaibu itself, I ended up staying a week. Would have stayed longer, but had a flight to catch! The pousada sits right in front of the beach, on a pedestrian-only walkway around the corner from the main square. It's a very simple place, but homey and clean. And given its location on the beach, a real bargain! Listening to the surf pound the shore all night long made for some good nights' sleep. There's not really much to do in Gaibu after dark, but there is a fabulous restaurant (Opara) just a couple of doors down from the pousada. I'd truly recommend Gaibu as an alternative to the more commercial, touristy, and expensive Porto de Galinhas. More
