“Rotten feet smell, the flies all over your food and they stole a bag. PIOR LUGAR EM JERI E ROUBARAM”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2012

I had to stay at this pousada after the agency (TAM Viagems)that we bought our vacation package from, messed up our reservation at Vila Kalango. They tried to convince us that Jeriba was at the same lavel of our inicial pousada which couldn't be more far from the truth. Since it was gonna be our honeymoon and we were all ready to go (because it was a day before the trip), we decide to take the offer and stay the first 3 days here. From the moment we put foot there I knew it wasn't gonna be be good. The driver helped us put our luggage in the entrance, where someone opened the door and just walked back to the front desk without helping us with our bags, let along giving us at least a welcome hey! The room while espacious and clean stunk like smelly feet for the whole time we were there and we couldn't opened the doors as the mosquitos would sworm in. The pousada has a crappy pool that I never saw getting cleaned. The chairs to sunbathe in are under a tree so you never get any sun. Breakfast was a battle between us and the flies, we tried to eat as quick as possible to get the hell out of there quickly. Except for a couple guys at the reception and a couple of the girls that served breakfast, the service was non existent, every time we went up to the reception area they would look at us with lost deer eyes, same when you asked a question, they never knew where anything was. After all of this I had consider giving this pousada an average rating because the rooms do have AC and they are spacious but when we left to go to our initial pousada Vila Kalango(which is great), I forgot a curlig iron and a small purse in one of the drawers, the reception guys where nice enought to calll Vila Kalango to inform us about the forgotten curling iron but when I went to pick it up the purse was missing to never be recovered. My guees is the cleaning lady probably thought we had left town and kept the purse. Too bad for me. This last episode was too much for me, this is has to be WORST place I ever stayed in.

When I went to Jericoacoara, in December last year, I stayed in three different hotels (because of availability) and my favorite by far was Pousada Jeriba! They have excellent service, the best location, great quality rooms and all for a reasonable price. The hotel only has 14 suites, all of them are large, have a king size bed, arconditioning and a high ceiling. The decoration is done very typical of the region and everything is well-cared for.

Breakfast in the morning was a real treat, the restaurant is located facing the beach, so you wake up with that amazing view to a gourmet meal prepared by a famous chef named Apolinario. After breakfast you can enjoy the beach (this hotel is located in the best part of the beach, which is a secluded corner) or go windsurfing, relax in the lounge chairs watching the action on the beach, or sunbath by the pool. For lunch, chef Apolinario also prepares great options, my favorite was the shrimp with olive oil and garlic, I ordered that pretty much every day. The best part, is that the prices are not outrages, when you close the bill you will not be unpleasantly surprised.
