“A Secret Garden”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2013

A lovely secret garden tucked away in one of the back streets of Pipa. Full of well cared for hummingbirds, bands of cheeky monkeys hunting (unsuccessfully) for crumbs after breakfast and a beautifully kept pool with timber decks & exuberant greenery around it. Located an easy walk from praya Amor & the center of town. Small, basic but very clean rooms with special touches that make one smile (flowers in the loo!). Colorful hammocks outside each room. The breakfasts of fresh fruit, coffee, teas, cakes, eggs& toast where delicious. The owners went out of their way to look after me, a great stay all-round.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2013 via mobile

We've been to Pipa three times, and stayed at Xamã every time. At this point, it's a bit like staying with family. A family that includes fuzzy monkeys, bossy hummingbirds, and cute bats. The rooms are small and basic but comfortable and spotless. The owners are friendly and no-nonsense, and they put a lot of TLC into the pousada, always out tending the tropical garden around the pool, fixing this and upgrading that. Aside from the pool, which makes for a nice focal point (and after-beach splash), the highlight for us is the breakfast spread. It's laid out like a game of memory, an array of baskets covering fresh fruits, breads and rolls, and homemade cakes, along with fresh chilled juices and cheese and hot scrambled eggs and meat. And cereals. And yogurt. And fresh coffee with hot milk. The location might seem a bit off the beaten track from Pipa center, but the main turnaround for the van from Goianinhas is at the end of the road. And the neighborhood is quiet and close to Praia do Amor, the cool surf beach. Plus on your way home from dinner you have to walk by Gelateria Preciosa, the best ice cream in town. It's a delight to arrive and a drag to leave. To us, that's the mark of a good pousada.

I've stayed few days in this pousada, located close to Praia do Amor. Quiet place, clean bedrooms (fresh flowers in the toilets ;) you'll find around the swimming pool a nice garden with dozens of colibris and little monkeys. Nice people, and a great breakfast with fresh fruits!

Pousada Xamã was by far the best place (for little money) we stayed at in Brazil. The pousada itself is very beautiful with a lot of plants, flowers, butterflies, hummingbirds,... and the room was large, charming, in very good condition and with a hammock on a balcony overviewing the neighbourhood. The owners are very nice and helpful and also the staff is very good, a great breakfast buffet, always clean. The place is cared for with a lot of love and also environmental consciousness. We couldn't believe we had to pay not more than in all these narrow and mouldy average hostels.
The location is a bit outside the centre but right at a bus stop and close to the Praia do Amor. The only drawback is the loud music from the Calangos club on weekends at night.

Room Tip: Be ready to pay R$ 20 more per night (for two) and take an upstairs room with view over the rooftops...

The place is fine, clean and well taken care -- make sure you ask for the renewed rooms, which are nicer than the old ones. However, this place is located at the end of the village, on the street behind the local nightclub, and you have to walk 10 minutes to the center of town to get to the best restaurants and bars (there are a small bakery and grocery stores nearby). If you stay here you may want to rent a car to move around (public transportation in Pipa is irregular and mini buses can be crowded during the high season).

I spent the new years there with a group of 11 people. We were there for a week and it was very good! The owners take very good care of the place and are close to the guests.

They also can organize trips, boogy rides, boat rides as well, if we want.

They have a pool table and a barbequeu place that we used free of charge.

In tHE new years eve it was very nice of them to prepare us a cocktail with friedmschrimp and other Things to nibble as well as free drinks!

Our party of 11 would def return there!!
