“My dream vacation!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2011

I have traveled around the world and Kite Brazil is the best pousda I have stayed. My boyfriend, a kitesurfer, drags me to Prea, Brazil twice a year, and Kite Brazil is the only place I will stay. Prea is a remote fishing town where everyone kites because the wind is perfect. Jeri is the "larger" town 30 mins away where everyone stays. But Jeri is loud and crowded at night. Kite Brazil is the perfect refuge from NYC. I sit and read in the hammock and take long walks on Prea's remarkable and endless beach. For dinner and lunch we walk to local fish and pizza resturants. The owners make you feel like a member of their family. Their Posada is a labor of love and you see and feel the love at every turn. And, for my fellow New Yorkers, the coffee is excellent and served promptly at 8am. Kite Brazil is paradise! Love it here!

As you step in @kitebrazilhotel you can tell a lot of work has been done to transform this desert scenery into a generous garden filled with palm tree to bring some shade and the amazing variety of flower for the pure delight of your eyes...
Hacky and Dani built this amazing set of bungalow a few years back which is in my opinion the Kiter's dream pousada with ropes to hang your kites after rinse, plenty of storage, amazing breakfast with great strong italian coffee every morning...
The pool with its half moon shape makes it easy for everyone to relax after kiting and its just a great chill out spot for chatting or reading.
Having Hacky and Dani around eager to make us discover the best Kite spot around Prea and driving us in the Buggy as well as taking picture while we kitesurf so we could have great souvenir is way over everything I have ever experience anywhere else.
With a full 30 days of strong wind during our stay in october 2011... This is by far the best combo of lodging and kiting I have seen...

Found at Kite Brazil Hotel a perfect little paradise in the northeast of Brazil away from the big city at the entrance of Jericoacoara national park. Have been there already several times and can’t wait to go there again in December.

The Hotel is run by Dani and Hacky, a wonderful couple who is always available for help, advices and gives you the feeling from the first day at arrival to be a member of a great big family. Both are living already over 10 years in Brazil and Hacky opened in 1999/2000 already the first Kite-school in Brazil. After years of continuously hard work the place on a top a dune became a paradise. The Hotel consists of 7 separate chalets surrounded by lots of green and Palm trees incl. swimming pool. From the chalets you have a great ocean view. You have to try to be there at full moon period and stay relaxed at the swimming pool at night.


Short:
- Breakfast: gorgeous, no standard brazilian breakfast, you have a great daily choice of pancakes, self-made bread, different fresh juices, cereals, cakes etc.
- Chalets, accommodation and cleanliness: without using big words, it is perfect. No noise at night, daily cleaned by the staff.
- Location & safety:
-> closed by the famous village Jericoacoara which is reachable by buggy within a 15 min ride along the beach.
-> Safety: night guard every day, didn’t heard anything bad about this area. For every newcomer perfect place to get known a wonderful area of Brazil.
-> Night life and restaurants: In Prea you can find restaurants from low to high budget which you easily can reach by foot. To go to Jeri either join the Kite Brazil team or go via bus, buggy there (15 min max ride).
- Money: bring cash at the beginning but there is always an option to go to the next city and take money from ATMs. You can also pay at the Hotel with your credit card. Not accepted at ATMs are AMEX cards. Visa and Master are the most common used cards in Brazil.

Kiting and trips:
- For low weights please bring 6-8 sqm and others max 10 sqm as the wind is blowing constantly between 20 – 30 knts (average 24 knts).
- Don’t miss to go with the team on daily trips to several secret spots (depending on the time, it can be also a trip inside of the dunes which are not really known by others)
- Make downwinder trips shortly before sunset, around 8 km where you will be picked up by the team or your own buggy driver.
- Best place for kite surfing is around Prea whereas Jeri is more for Windsurfing. Check out the spot guide of Kite-Brazil-Hotel on their web site.
- kite-lessons: With Hacky you have one of the best kite teachers on the world. Many of kite-surfers worldwide went through his school to get on the board with success after classes.

Singles, couples, family:
- Independent if you are single, a couple, family it is a perfect place for everyone as you are always from the first day a part of the big family. Will not forget the lovely family from Seattle arriving with 4 teenagers and everyone of them was on the water or the single ones who made easily contact to others and fast new friends.

At least also to mention that you feel after one week being there (kiting, buggy trips etc) already as you would be there two weeks. Nature and adventure pure!

The Kite Brazil Pousada sure is no mass tourism. It is quite a trip to get there, but it is well worth it.

My 2 adult sons and I were there for almost 3 weeks. Lovely pousada, everything, bungalows, breakfast place, pool are done with love to details. Dani and Hacky are serving the by far best breakfast North of Fortaleza. This place is worth a stay whether you are kiting or not. If you are a kiter you are in the paradise. Hacky shows you the best spots, knows where to go when. We are experienced kiters and saw many kite spots, but the spots in the surrounding of Prea and Jericoacoara were the best.

Summary: Great Pousada, lovely hosts embedded in the unique, sandy beaches of Northern Brazil. Excellent kite surfing for experienced riders.

Have been here last year and ...this year as well.
This nice and cozy pousada located in nearly 100% windy position is ideal for kiting.
The owners Hacky and Dani are really nice and let you feel as you're at home.
Further more you can take lessons with Hacky and wonder around to kite in several amazing spots (wave. flat water, lagoons etc). In ten minutes you can reach Jericoacora and enjoy its nightlife.
In the end...I would strongly suggest to stay here for a while if you're in Ceara!

The hotel, which is located in Prea, approx. 20 min away from Jericoacoara, is run by a very nice couple. The Hotel has 8 bungalows and a very nice garden und is directly at the beach. The kite beach is just in front of the door basically, which is very convenient. The atmosphere is very familial and friendly. The owner, Hacky also gives kite lessons and he is a very good teacher. We enjoyed our holidays there a lot!!

Can't say enough good things about Kite Brazil!

It is run by Hacky and Dani who are extremely friendly and have been in Brazil for over 10 years running kite schools and pousadas. The place has a great kite boarding/surfing vibe. You will be looked after. Plan to meet some other good people there.

THE PLACE:

The place is new and modern (built within the last 4 yrs). A lot of attention is paid to detail overall and in each of the bungalows. Each bungalow is separate from the others and so they are private and no worries about noise. Wireless internet is good and fast. Lots of trees and tropical plants.

FOOD:

Breakfast is included (and it is good) - not just bread/juices. Each day - you come back from kiting - exhausted. The pousada will usually organize a group trip for dinner into town.

WIND/WATER:

The spot (Prea) is quite simply put a WIND MACHINE. It is not far from Jericoacoara (the famous windsurfer's paradise). Consistent wind between 20 and 30 knots almost every day during November (as well as other months). Using 7 sq meter kites almost every day.

OTHER:

Bring enough cash - as there is no ATM- although you can get a trip into a nearby town (25 minute drive) quite easily.
