“"A long awaited dream come true"”
Reviewed 26 February 2012

Have you ever gone on a kitesurfing holiday experienced the wind on the first day and then for the rest of the time nothing..... well this holiday was a dream come true for us. Wind every day and constant, the sun was shining and it was toasty warm. Prea is a beautiful place to stay, a stunning 15km long beach - a down wind heaven and enough room to experiment to your hearts content. Kite Brazil is fabulous it is right next to the national park and the accommodation is luxurious. Each bungalow is kitted out differently and maintained to a high standard, and to top it off there is a lovely pool as well. The owners Hacky and Dani are very welcoming and can't do enough for you. The atmosphere is friendly and you quickly make friends with other guests. If you are looking for a chilled out holiday with consistant wind and waves then this is the spot…. Having travelled the world and kitesurfed on the way, the total package of location, people and weather has caused us to go back for 3 months!

100% satisfied. I came to kite, rest, read and eat fish. That's what I got. BIG TIME.
The Posada is super super extra neat.
A nice kite spot just in front. The owners organize buggy trips almost everyday to vary your kite sessions... If you want to party Jeri is 15-20mn away in buggy. It is much better to stay in Prea and to shop + enjoy night life going to Jeri than the other way round (staying in Jeri coming to Prea to kite since Jeri spot is [--] as hell).
Need a on-the-beach 10mn walk at night to go dinner (Posada is at the west side of the village), but with the wonderful dark sky full of stars (remember you are in a semi-desertic area) it's a pleasure.
So, WHAT ELSE?

My wife and I arrived to Prea a day earlier than we had planned. Our previously booked bungalow at another hotel down the beach was not available, therefore, that hotel sent us to Kite Brazil for the night. Knowing what we know now we would have preferred to stay at Kite Brazil for our entire trip. The owners, Hacky and Dani, are wonderful and have obviously put a lot of time in making the space very comfortable. The bungalows are well-designed and very cozy. The abundant flowering plants throughout the grounds create a beautiful garden atmosphere. The pool is a definite plus as many of the other hotels in the area lack this feature.

Hacky and Dani, the owners, were a real pleasure to meet. They were both so warm and welcoming to us even though we were only staying one night. We enjoyed their company so much that we ended up spending a lot of time with them even after transferring to our other hotel (which we had already paid for). I can't say enough about these two, they are really superb people and getting to know them added so much to our trip.

The kitesurfing in Prea is out of this world and the wind is super consistent. I had wind everyday I was there. If you are coming to kitesurf in Prea or anywhere else on this coast there is no better contact than Hacky. He has been there for years and knows the spots better than anyone. He is an excellent resource and very giving of his time and knowledge.

Take a lesson from Hacky if you get the chance. He is an amazingly talented and creative rider. Often times expert riders lack the ability to instruct beginners or intermediates. This is certainly not the case with Hacky. He is very astute at pinpointing your problem areas and can simplify things. It is easy to improve with his guidance. He is fair and generous with his time. It is clear his first priority is not financial and it is more important to him that you are having a fun and worthwhile experience.

If you stay in the area around Prea for many consecutive nights you may find the restaurant options to be somewhat limited. I am sure this will change in time as the area grows. If there are non-kiters in your group who want to enjoy the beach they will need to get out early as the wind picks up by about 10 am each day.

Overall, I would recommend Prea and the Kite Brazil Hotel to anyone coming to the area. We will definitely be back.

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.
