Beach Hotel
I visit Brazil once a year. And i pretty know Joao Pessoa and all locations pretty well. But if there is a hotel where i always stay . This is the ONE . Amenities are pretty good and is located next to the Best beach . Its is not Tambau neither Cabo Branco. Its called INTERMARES beach. Full of coconut trees where you can find half gallon of cold coconut water for only 2,5 dollars . Its a 2,5 walking miles from Ponta de Campina beach and 3 miles away you can get a boat to a sand island called Areia Vermelha. The hotel is located across the beach .Beautiful sunrises . The breakfast is extremely good . You can have tapioca sandwiches made by order. The staff is extremely cordial and helpful. The only downside is the pool. Closed just after 8:00 pm and need to be a little more taken care off there is no filters working during the day turning the water funny. Overall will be back for sure.

It could have being an excellent stay except for some of the noises, like the neighbour's rooster, and the bar next door. The rooster would start his singing early in the morning. My last night stay, the bar next door was having a party and the music was very very loud until 330am or so and when I thought the bang bang of the music had stopped the rooster started his show. Great breakfast, nice customer service, very good facilities, but the outside noise wasn't very pleasant.
