Where to stay in Porto de Galinhas: Kaapalua Bungalows

  1. Location

The other places forgive me, but falling asleep to the sound of the waves and waking up to the view of the blue sea is hard to beat! Kaapalua Bungalows has the best location that an accommodation in Porto de Galinhas could have: right by the beach. It’s opening the gate and putting your foot in the sand.

But the best thing about the location is that it is on the right corner of the village beach, in a calmer place, more exclusively. And walking along the sand is 5 minutes to the natural pools and the most popular point of the beach and the center of the village.

To arrive by car, the point of reference is the final intersection of Rua Beijupirá, in the shape of a T. Turning left, the Kaapalua is the last building on the street.
It is a family property, which when not in use, is available for rent, therefore, it does not have indicative signs, but it is easy to be seen from all around.

All are airy and bright, with comfortable orthopedic beds. Our upstairs suite was quite spacious and had a large mirror, clothes rack, SPLIT air conditioning, Smart TV, chairs, wooden bench, servants, lamp, minibar, table and bench, as well as bed and bath linen. The decor is very tasteful and gave a special atmosphere to the place. On the balcony, we find a clothesline and a hammock to enjoy the wonderful view.

Everything is brand new and totally clean. The bathroom has soap and toilet paper, and the hot water is solar heated.

They offer a change of towels every 3 days, and bed linen every 5 days, but if the guest is interested, they indicate a cleaning service paid separately.

  1. Alternatives to breakfast

As Kaapalua is not an inn and does not offer room service or breakfast, the tip is to buy items for your coffee and keep them in the fridge in the room or in the shared kitchen.

Another option is to have breakfast at the nearby Pousada do Frade. It is served until 9 am and costs around R$20 (Jun/2018).

  1. External area

The Kaapalua has entrance from the side and through the gate in front of the beach. If you enter through the latter, be aware that there is a faucet to wash the sand outside.

Facing the sea, the garden is beautiful and has some tables where guests can spend time. There is an area with a table in front of the kitchen, and another with a barbecue. It’s hard to want to leave. Even more if you have a wine to accompany the sound of the waves!

  1. Differentials of this accommodation in Porto de Galinhas

O attendance It’s a very cool thing there, which works like a WhatsApp consultation.

After booking, we receive all the necessary information, such as WI-FI networks and passwords, local rules, information on how to get there by car or bus and location on Maps, contact details for the security guards in charge, directions to agencies and tours etc.

Other interesting details are that they accept payment by credit card or bank transfer at check-in, they are pet friendly upon prior consultation, and despite being in a more secluded corner of the beach, there are kiosks with good prices in front.

But I think the biggest plus point is the affordable price.

For all this, and for the sensational view, the Kaapalua Bungalows was very pleasant and is one of the nicest places we have ever stayed.
