Great location, amazing breakfast and the staff was super helpful and friendly. The room was beautiful, spacious and clean. The beach is clean, relaxed and not crowded, city centre is easy to reach by Uber or taxi (8 / 15 real).
Swimming pool is relaxed and no loud music. Lots of places to hang out and relax.

Porto de Galinhas is Pernambuco's main tourist destination.it's warm emerald green waters will attract hundreds of thousands of tourists, brazilians or foreigner. High season (sept-feb) can be somewhat chaotic, with noisy, crowded streets, drunken teenagers partying heavily and street kids begging for money. But if you're heading for Tabajuba, scratch all that: this charming B&B is a sea of calm and tranquility.
Tabajuba is not located on the downtown area, where the fisherman's used to be. It is a 10- minutes drive away from the buzz and you can easily ask for a cab, so, that's a good thing. Their moto is QUIET AND CHARMING, and so, kids under 12 are not allowed and they will do their best to enforce a quiet environement where you can hear the ocean whisper a sweet song.
Glass reading room and ayurvedic massages facing the ocean help you get in the mood, while workers salute you with cute uniforms and a warm smile on their faces. Nothing can be as relaxing.
The B&B owner comes from a traditional hotelier family and their costumer service owns up to that tradition. All workers are natives that have been personally trained by Kiki over the years and they run the B&B with their hearts on their sleeve. They will do their best to assure your stay is as pleasant as possible.
Breakfast is comlimentary and superb. Food is good and reasonably priced, but if you want something special, go downtown and visit starred restaurants.
One more thing worth noting: pernambuco is an EXTREMELY hot and humid place. Most people are not used to this level of humidity, and so, most things will seem damp all the time, inclunding towels, bedsheets, sometimes floors. This is quite inevitable and it gets worse the closer you are to the seashore.That is something we will hear from people all the time, no matter where. So, yeah, take it as a given and do as locals do: just ignore it. No point in asking for a different set of dry towels, really.
Whenever couples come to Porto and asks for recommendations, Tabajuba's on my list, and it is possibily the one that never failed to charm guests.
Entry-level rooms are bigger, more luminous and generally prettier.
If you are looking for cozy, charming and romantic, this might be your best choice.

I decided for this pousada on the basis of good tripadvisor comments, and I found it even better. Just in front of the seaside, on a very quiet part of the beach but if you like the crowd and fun of Porto de Galinhas you can walk there in 30 minutes on the beautiful sand. Clean room, looks much more real and typical than nearby hotels. Everybody in the staff was extremely helpful and kind. All the services at the hotel have a very reasonable price (free wi-fi, beer around 1.5 euro, breakfast included, don't forget to try the manioca) and also the cost for the stay was quite convenient. No kids allowed, thus really quiet at night.

Just returned from our first trip to Porto de Galinhas and loved our stay at Pousada Tabajuba. When you're in such a fabulously beautiful place and catered to by such warm and friendly staff it is hard to find anything to quibble with. The hotel grounds are very lovely and intimate. Food in the restaurant was very good. Staff eager to help with every request. Beach access impossible to beat. I don't think any of the rooms on the property have direct ocean views except from their balconies, which would be nice but we didn't mind. I would recommend getting a room with a balcony since swinging in the hammock is a great way to idle away your time in this heavenly place. We walked back and forth to the village of Porto de Galinhas several times - it took us about 25 minutes one way. Be aware that after dark the beach is teeming with little crabs that may creep out your paramour. Unlike the beach nearer the village, the beach in front of Tabajuba is not served by hotel staff or any vendors but the tradeoff is a much greater degree of privacy. One tiny flaw was the wifi, which was so slow as to be nearly unusable. We loved this place and I highly recommend it.

This adults-only property is located on quiet stretch of beach, about half-way between the town and Cupe beach (this is a great thing as you're somewhat removed from the craziness in the town but not too far away from it and the other beaches/attraction). It's a 20 minute walk along the beach to the town, which is a great to do during the day. At night you have to take a taxi (a fixed rate R$10 each way). The property has a rustic/local feel. The grounds are nice and well-manicured, with a pool, bar, tables, and chairs facing the ocean (a great spot for tanning or lounging in the evenings and watching the moon rise). During the weekdays they have live music in this area in the evenings. The rooms are nice and decorated with rustic/local elements. Mini bar prices are very reasonable. The bathrooms however, can use some upgrading. The breakfast is great. Good selection of fruits and pastries. Restaurant staff is very attentive. You can also place orders for specialty dishes (try the baked cheese). Our only "complaint" is that the front desk staff wasn't very informative when we were checking in. The young woman just rushed us through and didn't give us any useful information about the property amenities and the town. But other than that, our stay was great. Given the small selection of boutique, new/newly-renovated, and reasonably priced options in Porto de Galinhas, we rate this pousada a 4-star. We'd stay there again and recommend it.

Note about Porto de Galinhas: Try to time your trip during full moon. This is when the corals will be most visible. Also, sunrise is very early and the high tide takes all of the beach by 2pm. So you must get up early to take full advantage of the day and beach activities.

This place is incredible. It doesn't allow small children as guests which means that it is super peaceful. The beach is practically private and the pool is fantastic. The rooms have a particular design and they are very comfortable. The breakfast is excellent.

My husband and I stayed at this little hotel in June 2014 for four nights. It is a very friendly little hotel. Our room was big and comfortable. It was on the ground floor and the door was a little hard to close, but other than that the room was very nice. We felt very safe and at home. Breakfast was good, with enough selection to satisfy. We had dinner at the hotel one night, which was also good. The beach is beautiful, but you can not swim. You have to go to town to swim at the beach. It is a short cab ride to town and all the cabs charge the same flat rate (about $5 Canadian). The people of the town are very friendly and honest. On one of our cab rides the driver did not have change, he could not speak English, but with our very little Portugese we managed to understand him when he told us he would leave change at our hotel. We figured that wasn't going to happen, and figured he got a good tip from us. BUT when we got back to our hotel, the young woman at reception waved us down (as we had forgotten all about it) and gave us our change that the cab driver had dropped off for us. How nice is that!

We stayed a few nights before heading back up to Recife (to catch a WC game) and were so glad that we choose to stay in Porto De Galinhas. What a great town with lots of restaurants/bars, joyous environment, friendly people and beautiful beach. Tabajuba surpassed our expectations. Rooms were clean (each had own hammock), staff was the friendliest we encountered on our adventure for the WC, breakfast was quality, drinks/lunch/dinner food was phenomenal for the value (inexpensive & good). The hostess at the front desk presented a beverage upon arrival and we were treated with great care for the duration of our stay. The English barrier was difficult at times but nothing that Google Translate on the front desk computer couldn't handle. The only surprise for us was the proximity into town- it was a much longer walk along the beach then we had anticipated. But cabs are dirt cheap so we would typically walk into town along the beach and then cab back. The hostess' boyfriend was a cab driver so we arranged all travel arrangements through him (so convenient!) and he even gave us an unbeatable price to cab us back to Recife. Very happy with our stay at Tabajuba and would absolutely recommend.

O quarto sem varanda e extremamente escuro e sem ventilação. Eles tem ar, porém o aparelho de ar condicionado e extremamente antigo e muito barulhento, dormimos muito mal com o barulho. Os quartos tem vista para a piscina. O restaurante funciona mas os preços são um pouco elevados. O café da manhã eu não gostei.

Hola Liliana. El paquete que yo contraté tenía incluída habitación superior. Te aconsejo que te pongas en contacto con la Pousada porque lo habitual de las ofertas es que incluya las habitaciones de planta baja. De todos modos el lugar es recomendable en todo sentido.El lugar a orillas del mar en las noches es romántico y se puede disfrutar una caipirinha disfrutando de la brisa del mar. Buen viaje
