We stayed at this resort in July 2012 for 3 nights. Even though we had to endure a 4 and a half hour car ride from Fortaleza to this place, from midnight to 4:30 AM, it was well worth it. In spite of the early morning arrival, someone was waiting for us at the reception. We were quickly shown to our bungalows, leaving the luggage to be handled by the employees.
The decor of the bungalow was extraordinary, from the queen bed and the mosquito net to the additional 2 beds, to the enclosed shower with water running down through the floorboards.
Even though everything is built on sand, the landscaping was lush and varied. In keeping with the rustic feel of the bungalows, the lounge, bar and restaurant were designed the same way. We had breakfast, lunch and dinner there, every time trying out something else from the menu. Everything we ate was delicious.
The staff was very friendly and personable. We used the pool quite a lot, since the wind on the beach was really strong and was blowing sand everywhere. It's good for kite-surfing, which was practiced by a lot of people there, but not good to lay there for sunbathing. No complaints though, as the pool area was a good place, where you always could find a place to lounge.
All in all, it was one of our best experiences at a seaside resort. If it wasn't that remote, we would visit it more often.
