This Pousada is absolutely charming! Located right on the beach, it has a beautiful garden and a red swimming pool,
The rooms are in fact "cabanas" (huts) or "Palafitas", with no glass windows, but with all the comfort you need for the perfect holidays. The decor of the rooms is really cosy and tasteful and the common areas (gardens and lounge) are cool and, as they say in Brazil, "descolado".
We staid in one of the "Palafitas", which have no air conditioning. No problem. the breeze is cool enough!
The breakfast is very good: fruits, juices, home baked bread and cakes and, if you want to try a "tapioca" just ask! The restaurant prepares delicious "petiscos" and is also a good option for your dinners.
Attentive staff, great location and cool facilities. We had a great time.

Room Tip: There is a construction site next to the Pousada, so ask for the rooms located near the restaurant.

I loved Vila Kalango, everyone is very kind and the service is great.
the rooms are very good and comfortable.
the location is good too and Jericoacoara is wonderful.
The breakfast is great too and the bar is very cool and the people who work there are very thoughtful.
I didn't know the fitness center because I wasn't interested. all the rest is very special.

I spent 2 weeks in the hotel enjoying windsurfing in Jeri. Great hotel with friendly personnel and very good service. The food was excellent! Internet is a bit slow in the rooms but ok in the restaurant area. The windsurfing centre - Ticowind is offering excellent service. Very exotic place and I would definitely like to come back.

We've spent twelve days at Vila Kalango in October 2012, and it was a very nice experience. The effort done by the hotel builders to remain true to the natural environment is visible right when you arrive: thatched roofs eveywhere, wood for most of the construction and some care about the environment. Coconut trees are all over the pousada and everything is neat and clean.
The hotel staff is very firendly and professional and really answers any question you may have about Jericoacoara. Breakfast is very tasty and you can order several things that are not found at the buffet for no additional cost.
The swimming pool is small and a bit deceiving 'cause it is not very deep. However, the view from the pool is magnificent, since you have the dunes on one side and the beach and village on the other.
We stayed in one of the apartments located just above the reception and our internet connection was really slow. Moreover, the apartment was a bit noisy, since we had all the traffic from the dunes into the village. A little more light in the apartment wouldn't be bad either, 'cause we were not able to read, since there was no sunlight at all that reached the room because of the trees. What was nice about the apartment, though, was the fact that it was really spacious, neat, with a little garden and shower separated from the room jjust outside in the open air. Really nice!
Overall, I'd say that our stay at Vila Kalango was almost perfect. What we didn't like was the rubbish (lixo) that you could find in the beach right outside the pousada. What a shame!
One detail that we really enjoyed, and it really made a difference for us, was the fact that we could spend the day at the other pousada from the same group. It's called Rancho do Peixe and it is gorgeous in any aspect. The trip to reach Rancho do Peixe is just 30 minutes from Vila Kalango and the shuttle is free. The trip is also very rewarding 'cause one can appreciate the beauty of Jericoacoara...
