“Fantastic Expiriance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014

Was greats days. The Staff are very attentive.
In restautent, Srs Francisco and others, are so good guys.
Ours days there was wonderful.
At night there are several options resutarantes around the hotel.
The city's nightlife is cool and worth going out for a stroll.

Room Tip: I tink that all rooms are so good.

We took up the advice from Lonely Planets guide to Jericoacoara and booked 5 nights here. We came for relaxation after weeks of traveling.
The location, garden, pool, trees, are absolutely marvelous. You don't feel the need for ever leaving the premises.

The staff is very friendly, and service minded, although with limited english skills. Marco at the reception spoke fluid English, the rest were so so.
I'm not one of those demanding the world speaking english, and we did our best to learn some Portuguese before traveling, but I do feel that communicating in english should be standard at touristy high-end places.

Drinks and food is served all day by a very friendly staff. Cocktails are tasty, although not as excellent as some of the cocktails made by the youngsters at the end of Rua Principal (they're a third of the price here too).

Same goes for food, it's tasty, fresh, but taking value into consideration, you can probably do better making the short walk to Jeri centre.
With all facilities needed for a tropical holiday, you shouldn't undervalue the convenience of having a dinner 15m from your bed, putting the bill on your room. Remember, there are no ATMs in Jeri.

The room is fantastic, rustic, all natural local materials. Bathroom/WC-area is not fully closed (walls don't go all the way up). Bed is super comfortable! Air condition very quiet.

The beautiful sunset is right outside, the great sand dune is your closest neighbor.

We definetely recommend this place.

Room Tip: Rooms closer to reception don't have ocean view, but it never gets to hot here, which gives comf...

Vila Kalango has surprised us, by decoration typically natural, beautiful gardens, and a unique architecture. The bungalows hidden along the garden, give a romantic air and with plenty of privacy. Good location, close to the main street but, away from the noise. The sunset, which can be seen from any point of the pousada.
All services are of excellent quality ... the breakfast is wonderful, with several features of fruit, breads, tapiocas and omelets, the reception are friendly and helpful, the garços are polite, and the room-made always smiling. We are grateful for a week of joy, peace and love! Certainly, we will be back!!!

Vila Kalango has such an amazing atmosphere, the all natural and local architecture gives an easy feeling, very comfortable and relaxing. I have to comment on how delicious the breakfast is! It may be the only meal included, but It might just be all you need for the day; so many options on delicious tapiocas, crepes, eggs and waffles made to order. The location is also one os the best features, the privileged spot at the end of the beach, making it the nearest to the famous sunset dune, where you get to watch literally the most beautiful sunset in Brazil, all while feeling like you are in an hidden oasis. The only bad thing I could think of is that the white concrete style hotel next door reminds you that, unfortunately, not all constructions at Jericoacoara are natural and as peaceful as Vila Kalango.

Vila Kalango is a small beachfront inn close to the dune and steps away of several great bars and restaurants. The property is beautiful, the "bangalos" are located in its perfectly landscaped gardens. The swiming pool is very relaxing and service is really great: friendly and efficient. The food is good, maybe a little expensive for local standards. Breakfast is excellent with lots of fresh fruits, home made breads/cakes and eggs/pancakes made to your preference.

I've stayed there in 2006. It was a very good and unique experience. Unfortunately, they were expanding and the tractor could be heard at 10:00am, even though it's late I always wanted to sleep some more on my vacation. I'm sure that they may have an expansive beautiful place at this moment. The room was very basic, however comfortable and beach themed. If you afraid of little lizards that is not for you, because I could see them from the shower...which I loved...nature is all around. They also had more expensive tree house rooms, which I definitely would try. The tree rooms may have a beach view, the rooms below don't it. Think...this is very good, it means that the beach sand was kept in its natural state to the max. The pool is amazing....I used all day and all night, it never closed. The food was amazing...homemade goodness. The hotel location is great 25 steps from the beach. The beach in front of it is indescribable....breathtaking. I would definitely go back.
