This Swiss runned pousada offers great rooms which are decorated very nicely and are very spacious. Every rooms has a terrace and a hammock which is great for relaxing after a long tour or day trip in the Chapada. The breakfast was the best we had so far in all pousadas that we know, try the local honey! If you... More

The hotel is beautiful, really clean and the staff is helpful, friendly and fun. I cant wait to go back to Lençois and the stunning Chapada Diamantina. Breakfast was super fresh and tasty. And the girl that organises the tours (Cris) is truly amazing. this place is a must stay if you go to Lençois!

For a couple in their fifties who wanted a bit of luxury after 3 days of hiking in Vale do Pati, this was a good choice. The beds are comfortable (although I hate when they put the bed in a mezzanine) and the air-conditioning and wi-fi worked to give us mod coms. They have a lovely breakfast, you are within... More

Set in beautiful grounds a short walk up a (steepish) road from the main square and bus stop (tell the hotel I you are arriving by bus an they will pick you up, which is helpful to locate the hotel for the first time). Warm welcome from owner Swiss Chris. Spacious, clean, quiet, comfortable, nicely decorated rooms with hammocks outside... More

This hotel offers excellent accommodations with a variety of options for size of rooms and guest houses. The atmosphere is wonderful and the service was great. The hotel is set back away from the town and so it is quiet but only a short walk to the bustling streets and restaurants. The only issue we had with this property was... More

We arrived at the pousada following a stressful episode with Azul, who had no record of our booking in their system. This meant we had to buy new tickets at the airport. When we arrived at Vila Serrano, they helped us call the airline on their phone and allowed us to use their computer and printer to ensure we had... More

We stayed at Vila Serrano for three nights. It is close to the town centre up a little bit of a hill. The rooms, surrounded by a lovely garden, are comfortable, furnished with local materials and thought has been given to environmental considerations. The fact that there is no TV was not important at all for us. The staff were... More

We enjoyed our stay at Pousada Vila Serrano. Situated just outside the tourist center, 5 minutes walking distance from the main square. The rooms are very nice decorated with everyting you need. Also with a resting place outside to relax after a hike. The staff is really nice. Just ask, they'll be happy to help you. Very clean with a... More

First the bad news: no TV! I wanted to see some news about the copa so that was a disappointment. However, on our third day we were offered a small tv for our room with one channel. Problem solved! And we did not spend much time in the pousada anyway, since the surroundings are beautiful. Lencois is a small town... More

The location is good and within uphill walking distance from the center of the village Lençois. Well kept and peaceful botanical garden of about 5 hectars. The 13 bungalows are homely with spacious bathroom and cosy veranda with hamac (the fact that they have no TV is a big plus in our opinion). The furniture and decor artistically executed by... More
