“Relaxing and pretty pousada in Jeri”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2009

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 it was worth the price.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2008

My girlfriend and I spent five nights in Jericoacoara. We spent the first couple of nights at Pousada Papaya. The Pousada is beautiful, relaxing and very clean. They have a cute place to eat breakfast (good combination of fresh fruit, breads and juice), hammocks to lie in, and nice rooms.

We booked an apt, and were very pleased. It was a two-floor apt, with a living area on the first floor (that I think can be used for an additional bed) and then the bed was on the top floor. Lots of space, very comfortable, and we had a hammock right out front to lie in the sun.

The only minor problem was our communication with the staff. We didn't speak Portuguese (well very little), and they didn't speak any English, and we had a misunderstanding about how many nights we were staying, so we moved to another Pousada for the last couple of nights. The staff was very nice dealing with the misunderstanding and arranged to get us picked up and moved over to the other Pousada.

Overall a lovely, relaxing place to stay. We highly recommend it. Jericoacoara is a wonderful place to visit, and we would enjoy staying at Pousada Papaya again.

  • Liked — Location and atmosphere
  • Disliked — Communication was a bit tough.
