I friend of ours chose this pousada for our stay during new years week. Most of the other options asked for much higher rates for the same period, since our friends were staying there we took the same path. It was a great choice. The cost x benefit relation was great. The property is simple but really well maintened, beautiful... More

This pousada is a real gem. Daily breakfasts with views of the sunset dune were sublime, the staff are courteous and friendly, although they do not speak English. The gardens were beautiful and perfectly maintained, the swimming pool was clean and protected from the harsh sun in the afternoon. The location was perfect - only a 5 minute walk to... More

Staying at Pousada Papaya was the highlight of our trip to Brazil. We (a couple) stayed there for three nights in March 2012. We got the suite in a separate "building" with our own balcony and ocean view. That was a great choice! The room was clean and comfortable, enough space. The whole property is full of plants and flowers... More

This pousada is really nice. Nice building. Amazing garden that is well groomed. Great small pool though I am not a fan of pools on the beach front. Excellent breakfast with freshly cooked cakes daily. Nice room too. BUT.... It is completely lifeless. I have not seen anyone there but the cook and the cleaner though it was apparently full....

When I decided to go to Jericoacoara, I didn't want to stay in one of those fancy places there. Instead, I looked for a nice place and something affordable. Pousada Papaya offered what I wanted. Clean and comfortable trooms, friendly staff, a very good breakfast, a very cozy small hotel. Like in many other hotels in the city, you get... More

We'd loved to have stayed in this pousada. We booked for three days and had to pay a deposit of 2 days. No problem of course and perfectly understandable. However, due to severe weather conditions in Europe our flights were canceled day after day after day. Result: not able to get to Jeri on time. We know that the deposit... More

Hi. My wife and I spend the holly week holiday in the Papaya pousada. The place is easy to find, just 50m (165 feets) from the bus station. It is a quiet place, just 5 minutes walking from the center of the village. The small swimming pool at the end of the day is delicious, surrounded by plants and flowers.... More

We had a terrific stay in Papaya. It's very cute, a little bit outside the village centre and the garden and (small) pool area were great to hang out in. Breakfast was a treat, and included a variety of different sweet baked treats every day. Out of season they have terrific special offers, but even in high season we thought... More
