This Hotel comes highly recommended to anyone wanting to stay in the area, the place is very clean, safe and fully equipped for all your needs. Not only this but all the staff from the cleaners to the bar staff are extremely friendly and ready to assist in providing a fantastic service. I was travelling by myself and was made to feel very at home and comfortable. They have also great knowledge of the area and ready to assist/advise in all your travel needs. For me this is by far the best hotel in the area and if you are into your kite surfing, boy you are in for a treat! Also leave your pump at home, the staff are equipped and ready to do all of this for you. Thank you for a great relaxed holiday. Ollie Edwards

Room Tip: All of them are equally nice, the sound of the sea is very relaxing :)

First the good things
+ The room was every day perfectly cleaned.
+The boys who helped with your kite (inflating, launching, landing) were great.
Than the bad things.
-There is a dog continuously running around over the premises. He jumps in the swimming pool, runs into the kitchen and is lying on the seating bags. He grabs sandals and shirts from guests, very annoying.
-We had a room on the ground floor. Here you have no privacy. Since there is no airconditioning you have to keep open the wooden lamellae such that everybody can see you lying in your bed. To keep the room bearably cool the lamellae have to be kept open at night as well which then allows entry of all noise. One night there was a party next door with extremely loud music till 5 in the morning.
-The kitchen is very slow. Take your time when you decide to have lunch there.
- Breakfast is limited (fresh fruits yes but nearly always limited to water melon and papaya) and it seemed that no one was responsible for breakfast. Regularly one had to wait half an hour for coffee.
For this price (200 Real per night) you have better places in Cumbuco.

Dear Annie, I am very sorry to hear you were so dissapointed in our hotel. But I am happy to let you know we made quite some changes. Happy guests is what we want!
+ The dog, Mitch, moved to a family house where he lives a very happy life now, chasing chickens and cats instead of guests ;)
+ We installed aircon in some of the rooms. People who suffer from the heath can ask specifically one of these rooms. We also offer ventilators.
+ We offer a bigger breakfast now, with a large choice of fruits, breads, juices, yoghurt, different kinds of cakes, eggs etc. We have a girl who takes care that all guests are satisfied and have enough coffee, tea or other things. Guests can call her is there's anything missing.
+ About the speed of the kitchen I can only say: in Brazil everything always goes a bit slower. Just sit back and relax and we will do everything to give you the perfect holiday!
We hope to see you again at Windtown one day!

This was our first trip to Brazil. Not really knowing what we are in for, it has been a wonderful experience that passed all expectations.Windtown is really the best option! The hotel is a perfect place for kiting, enjoying the Cumbuco beaches and relaxing. They are located a little outside of town, which creates a quiet setting. Fortunately, the 5 minute walk to town allows for easy access to restaurants, shops and a genuine Brazilian experience.
The grounds are beautiful, creating an oasis with prisitine beachfront views. Our room was settled right in front of the water, which was surreal. The ocean breezes blow through the rooms. The rooms are clean, the food is incredible and the staff was really the best part of our stay. This is an absolute must for your Brazilian get-away.

Room Tip: Room 6 had perfect location right on the beachside, which steady winds blowing through the room. No...

This was my 2nd time in Windtown and after checking out different spots and hotels I decided to stay for 7 weeks in Windtown this year.

- Location is amazing; quiet on the water in front of the hotel while center of Cumbuco can be quite crowded. Fantastic sessions......4 - 5 people on the water!
- Jumping in a fresh water pool is great after a long session on the sea
- Compressor on the beach and supervised kitesurfing. Big motivator to improve your kite skills and experiment. Always someone ready to help if needed which makes you feel very safe(!). They will even rig your kite for you if you're lazy....
- Skilled staff that will always try to make your stay more memorable; organizing trips to the most beautifull spots around, big BBQ sessions and making sure the Windtown stay is an 'open' experience where you meet smart and positive people.

Cumbuco is a great place, wind EVERY day and perfect temperature. Wind starts at about 10am and drops in the evening which means you don't get blown away or sandblasted while having dinner or drinks in the evening. You basically can use your 9m kite every day, maybe using your 11m for the fairylike 'sunset session'.

I've been kiteing for 6 years now and after visiting other places I decided this is paradise, it is as simple as that!
Traveling alone you meet fantastic people in Windtown, improve your kiteskills and celebrate a good session or kite trip with a nice cocktail or bottle of Champagne.

If you like kitesurfing, meet new people or be reunited with friends that return to Windtown as well;
If you enjoy that extra bit of luxury, great kite trips and an open atmosphere;

Windtown is the perfect place!

Room Tip: Rooms on the first floor are a bit quieter and have more wind during the night. Ground floor rooms...

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Windtown Beach Hotel is a trendy and smallscale hotel with 18 rooms, situated directly on the untouched beach of Cumbuco. With one of the best kite surfing spots in the world right in front of the hotel, Windtown is a mecca for kite enthusiasts. Besides that, it's also a great relaxing place for the regular sunbather. The hotel has a spa, a pool, a beach bar, a sun deck with sun beds (with wonderful views of the kitesurfers at sea!), a restaurant that serves simple meals for lunch and dinner and a lounge area with a flat screen TV. The kitesurf school, located on the beach in front of the hotel, offers courses for all levels, rents first class equipment and organizes downwinders to the nearby lagoons of Cauípe (6 km), Taíba (20 km) and Paracuru (40 km). Windtown Beach Hotel is designed in a way that it blends into the surrounding nature: lots of wood and stones, set in a lush garden with colorful flowers and tropical birds. Because the hotel is built on the wind, it creates a natural air flow in the rooms. As a result, the use of air-conditioning is not necessary. Nevertheless, there are some air-conditioned rooms. All rooms have full ocean-, pool- and garden views, and come with a bathroom with a hot shower, comfortable beds, a safe, free wifi and a veranda with a hammock. The fresh and extensive breakfast buffet serves local delicacies and is included in the room rate. The charming village center of Cumbuco is 800 meters from Windtown. Close enough to walk and far enough to have that extra privacy and tranquility. The pristine sand dunes, where you can make beautiful walks and see breathtaking sunsets, are just behind the hotel. Also Fortaleza airport is not far away: 30 kilometers. Airport transfers can be arranged. The focus in Windtown is on personal service and sophisticated quality. The atmosphere is sporty, casual and sociable. Additionally, the hotel breathes a healthy and natural lifestyle. ... more   less
