This was our first trip to the Brazilian Northeast, and our first destination after flying into Recife was Porto de Galinhas. We had a nice, relaxing time during our all-too-short stay here, and we were very happy with our choice to stay at the Pousada Ecoporto.
We rented a car in Recife and drove down to Porto de Galinhas (travel time was about 1 1/2 hours). The Pousada is located just a couple of miles north of the center of town, right on the beach overlooking the ocean. We were able to park the car right in front, very convenient. It was also an easy 5 minute drive into town, but if you don't have a car, I believe the pousada has a shuttle that will take you there and pick you up as well.
The pousada itself was great! As mentioned, the hotel is right on the beach, and our room had a great view of the ocean. The balcony had shutters that could be opened to let in more sunlight and fresh sea-air, or they could be closed for more privacy. There was also a hammock that you could hang up and take a relaxing nap while listening to the waves. The room was very clean, nice size, with a comfortable bed. Bathroom was clean with a relatively large shower. The maid service did a great job cleaning, even folded little towel animals on the bed with hibiscus flowers everyday. The breakfast was very tasty - nice selection of breads, fresh fruits and juices, and meats. Staff was very hospitable, helped us reserve a dune buggy tour of the surrounding area and beaches.
Would highly recommend this pousada for anyone traveling to Porto de Galinhas!
