The swimming pools are great, and the gardens are beautiful. The hotel has a great family atmosphere and the staff are very friendly. The room was very nice, with a nice balcony, but there was a poor flow from the sink taps in the bathroom. The hotel is not noisy at night, which is good if you want to sleep. There are great Sporting facilities in the pools and elsewhere. I have been to this hotel twice and I would really recommend it. It would be better if more staff spoke English though.
Like many places in Brazil though, the access road was uneven and needed improving. I was not expecting such a fantastic hotel at the end of a disorganized back street. The beach is so beautiful. While swimming is discouraged due to undercurrents, I think that it is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to. The beach and sea are so beautiful and walking there is amazing.
I was worried prior too arrival that the hotel would nor live up to the pictures I had seen online. However it was everything and more. A great place to stay. Staff was great and always available. Facilities are excellent. Pool and beach are pay of the hotel. Fantastic overall.

Come to the new BEST WESTERN PLUS Viva Porto de Galinhas, opened in 2012. 120 rooms with ocean view, balcony and hammock on …More
Very close to the beach, very accommodating staff. Very charming bed & breakfast. Would stay there again. The staff was extremely nice, helpful and accommodating. The breakfast was delicious - nothing fancy, very simple but plentiful and good quality. The pool area was nice as well. The rooms are on the small side but when in Porto de Galinhas you'll be in your room only to sleep!
It is beautifully situated and is a peaceful environment. The front desk is extremely helpful with good english. It is slightly isolated. The restaurant serves buffet style morning and evening. To find an alternative, you must take a taxi to Porto de Galinhas to find other restaurants.
Both Brazilians and foreigners make their way out to Porto de Galinhas in the southeast of Ipojuca. Reefs off the coast contain numerous tropical species of fish, including seahorses. You can enjoy local restaurants in the Vila de Todos os Santos or shop at Vila de Pescadores. Spend your day horseback riding or relaxing on the beach or head out to join the town's nightlife.
