“Best place to stay at Cumbuco!!”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

The place is not right on the beach, but...fortunately: you're a bit more sheltered from the wind which blows all the time as promised for the keen kitesurfers. Each time we opened the door, we felt we were entering a peaceful oasis at the middle of the desert. People are nice, welcoming with excellent service.
This place encourages people to mix and you find friends very quickly. The ambiance was very friendly and casual! We loved the daily fresh baked cake after kitesurfing!
Thanks to Mario and his staff for amazing holidays!

My experience at the Cumbuco Guesthouse has been wonderful. The staff could not be more accommodating and friendly. The rooms are comfortable and include a refrigerator. Breakfast is great: fresh fruit; eggs made to order; cereal; baked goods; coffee and tea. Fresh fruit is provided throughout the day. Guest kitchen use is also a big differentiator, especially with a wonderful fish market down the street. They also offer delicious weekly barbecues. The Guesthouse is as kite-friendly as I could imagine. The owner, is a veteran kitesurfing instructor. The beach access across the street is convenient for launching kites at both high and low tide. They also have a buggy and offer lagoon and downwind trips. I am already looking forward to coming back next year!

Staying in this guesthouse was added value to our trip and we will stay there again next time.
All good things that mentioned in previous reviews are true and trustworthy.

Rooms are large and very clean. Staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast is full, fresh and delicious. Music in breakfast area is sucks big time, it's slow and quite like at funeral :), so I would recommend you to bring your ipod just in case that you have same taste as we are ))

Mario (owner) is a really good guy and he's always on top of everything. He will organize for you everything there lessons, airport transfer, rent, $ exchange...

Stay here, you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: all rooms are relatively equal. You not staying in room there trust me ))

I only stayed at cumbuco for 3 nights but I wish I could have stayed longer - if not for committments back home I would have.

The guesthouse is a perfect balance of chilled-out and practical. With hammocks and a simple yet delicious breakfast set-up, and an ouside shower and plenty of space to dry kites/play games etc. The managment offer a range of activities to occupy time not spent kiting, from cinemas to caipirinha fridays! The venue is located close to the town and the owners are more than happy to advise on the best places to eat/drink/shop in town, as well as give vital local knowledge and information.

I will miss my time at cumbuco, I enjoyed the kiting and the social experience in meeting lots of new people who were all very friendly. I will definately be returning when next in Brazil.

We aranged for a one-night stay aat the Cumbuco guest House before travelling on to our condominium in Taiba. As our flight from Portugal didn't arrive until after dark I didn't want to hire a car at fortaleza airport and drive at night after a long flight. no problem......Cumbuco guest house arranged for a taxi to pick us up at the airport (what a difference and relief a welcome sign with your name on means !!!)for the 40 minute drive to Cumbuco. Welcomed to our spacious room with large bathroom with a complimentary bottle of good Argentine wine, we slept well and woke early for a very generous breakfast and the arrival of our hire car bang on time at 09.00. For $R100 a night and $R90 for the taxi this is wonderful value for money and we strongly recommend this establishment for travellers like us (in our 50's) as well as all the young dudes who were staying there for the kite surfing. Brilliant !!

Room Tip: If you have a lot of heavy luggage, try to get a ground floor, although the staff will help carry it...

It was too short, i'm only thinking of going back !
Everything was great, especially the breakfast, the afternoon cake and the caipi night ! :)
I just loved the hamac as well ;)
I highly recommend the guest house to every one ! It's just too bad there is no pool, but who knows, it might happen :)

We really loved everything about this place. It's pretty, close from the center but very quiet and the staff is helpful and very friendly. There are hammocks and beans bags to relax. The WiFi works well. On friday, there are free Capirinhas and cake everyday. Most of all, the breakfast is awesome. We would totally stay there again.
The two dogs are so cute!
