Pousada Barbara is literally ON THE BEACH. The location couldn't be any better. It's only 2 mins from the main street, but perfectly quiet and tranquil. The main street gets very busy and loud with bars pumping music all night long. But at Barbara you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere. We wish we could stay there for a month!
The new owners (less than a year) completely renovated the place. It's clean, very bright and lively. Bathrooms were spotless. Free breakfast in the morning was amazing. The hammock to swing on every night was exactly what we needed. The owner speaks perfect english, french and portuguese. He recommended us an awesome kite surfing school and even gave us a ride there (about 15 mins from Pousada).
Carlos, who works there, is also a really really nice guy. He helped arrange us a taxi from Recife to Pousada for $R 450. That's a really good rate compared to other places.
Overall, love the place and would definitely come back.
P.S. If you love meat, check out Restaurante Os Prazeres Da Carne (it just opened 2 weeks ago). The best Picanha De Argentina. It's located up the hill on one of the small streets off the main street. Just ask Carlos for directions.More
