My wife and I got engaged there in 2008, so clearly this place is very special to us. If you are planning to spend a few nights in Porto de Galinhas, stay at Canto do Porto. It’s far enough from the village to be completely peaceful day and night, yet only a mere ten minutes’ stroll along the beach from the center of everything.
The pousada is situated oceanfront, and includes an inviting arrangement of small buildings with spotlessly clean rooms just large enough to be cozy, not cramped. Each room has a TV, minifridge, wall safe, and its own balcony with hammock. The grounds are charmingly appointed and meticulously maintained. There is an outdoor bar, a patio, and a small lawn with a couple thatched-roof shade “umbrellas”. All of the above, as well as the dining room, have an unencumbered panoramic ocean view.
The staff was as warm and wonderful as the climate. They were polite and attentive, and provided the kind of care that can only come from people who enjoy their work. The breakfast that was laid out every morning was delightfully abundant and varied. In addition, any food that we ordered for lunch or dinner at Canto was among the best food we ate in Porto and reasonably priced as well.
There is no pool there, but trust me, you may not even notice. When ocean temps are in the 80s, who needs a pool. The ocean directly in front of Canto do Porto is a little rougher than it is towards the village. There is an abundance of mid priced accomodations in Porto. None of them, that we found, were a better value than this. We are planning to return in 2010 with some family and friends and stay longer this time.
Directions: Pousada Canto do Porto is located on the beach about 500m north of the village center.
