My wife and I stayed at Rancho do Peixe for four nights in March, 2011 during Carnaval holidays and it's was a great experience.
Not only accommodations are well designed and comfortable (if you can live without TVs), it's also located in a beautiful beach, everybody in the hotel try to make you feel at home and also food is delicious.
Hotel has two bungalows areas: one in the garden area and one in the beach. I would recommend staying in the beach area because of less mosquitoes and also because of the ocean / beach view right at your window.
Bungalows are build with local rustic materials and they follow a rustic-chic design. A nice touch is that you can take a shower right under the stars (shower roof is made of scattered wood sticks).
Food was delicious. Breakfasts are very nice with juices, yogurts, fruit, cheese, bread, cakes, omelets and tapioca. Lunch (if you can eat after having this kind of breakfast) and dinners have a great selection of seafood that is cooked in a delicious home made style.
There is also a kite surf school. I did two kite surf classes and it went very well. I got a very professional instructor and really enjoyed the sport. Too bad that it was the end of wind season and I couldn't have all classes that I was planning. Wind season starts at June / July and goes up to end of February / beginning of March.
Rancho do Peixe is not located in Jericoacoara. It's located in a small village called Prea. But hotel has transport to/from Jericoacoara. It takes about 20-30 minutes and it runs every hour.
If you are traveling with kids they also have a nice swimming poll. And the staff can arrange tours to tourist attractions in the region.
