We stayed for a week vacation in this lovely place. Ecoporto is a beach front bed and breakfast inn. The breakfast is delicious. It is really nice to be on the beach with just few steps. It is about 20-30 minutes' walk along (avoid to walk at night) the beach to reach the Porto de Galinhas Village or the Natural pools. Or it is R$10 reais per cab to reach the Village. At night, it is very silent and all you can hear is the sound of the waves. The only reason I would not rate higher is because one night we stayed without power all day and night and I did not feel that much efforts were made to have it fixed. I did not even see the owner (who lives next door) trying to fix the problem. The staff said that it was the city problem. They distributed candles to the guests (the same kind they burn at the cemeteries in Brazil) which I thought was dangerous .
They offer beach/pool towels, as well as chairs and umbrella to be set at the beach on request.
The only thing I wished is that they had warned us about the mosquitoes. The first night my son had over 50 mosquito bites. Be aware that you will need a lot of repellent as well as bug sprayer which the staff provides as well.
The bedrooms: All rooms are beach front and it has 3 floors. We stayed in the first floor (ground floor) because according to them, for safety issues, family with children must be in the first floor. My sisters stayed in the 2nd floor, which was nice too, but the coconuts trees were blocking the view. We all stayed on bedrooms for three people, one double bed and one single bed. I asked if we could move to the second floor to be close to my sisters bedrooms since my daughter was old enough (11 years old) and they said it was full. And the 3rd floor are double rooms and won't fit us three. The rooms were clean, it definitely needs a lot of maintenance (and they took care very promptly as soon as we requested), beds are nice, decorations are very basic but had everything we needed.
The staff: Since the day I first contacted to get information about the Pousada, Cristiane was always nice and replied all my enquiries quickly. The check in was smooth (other than that they split our group) and fast. The front desk people in general were always very helpful. There were few nights that only one of the male employee at the front desk that did not show much interest in helping. All the ladies including Dna. Cecilia, the manager were all very helpful.
The restaurant: The Pousada has a small restaurant where the breakfast is served daily. The breakfast is really good, with varieties (they change every day most of the Brazilian's treats). I took many pictures of the breakfast because I wanted to post here. However we had our camera lost/stolen during a tour in Maragogi. It was a nice water proof blue Fuji camera. In case anyone ever finds it, please pot here. The camera can be purchase again, but the pictures are priceless. The lunch and dinner food is just OK for the price you pay, but considering the convenience it is nice to be able to eat there. Just be patient because it takes at least 30 - 40 minutes until they will serve your meal. Ours took even longer because we were a group of 9 people. The first two nights we waited so long that the following nights we ate there, we ordered from the room and they called us when the meals were ready. One of my favorite from there is a sandwich called "The fillet". My sister liked the soups. My kids liked the "spaghetti a alho e oleo ". The portions are small and very few meals would serve two.
I recommend this place for its price compared to others beach front hotels.
