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.
