Ran by mother and son who are very kind and welcoming. Our room was very simple but clean and the breakfast was satisfactory. Do not look to this hotel for any type of luxury or frill but simply as a good value place considering the competition.

We stayed in this hostel for 2 days. We love it, it's also like a bb house. The room is small, but got everything you need. If you want a very luxury stay dot stay here. But if you want a great deal and a cozy clean and simple place to stay, this will be you choice. The hostel owner... More

Good experience. Bruno and his mother are really helpul and kind. The small inn is simple, small, but very clean, close to the center of the small town of Barreirinhas. The garden is beutiful, the morning breakfast delicious and full of local products. A very good choice to rest and prepare for the attractions of the dunes and river Preguiças.... More

Great experience at Pousada Sao Jose. Bruno and his mother are two wonderful people, kind and helpful. Warm welcome from both and any request satisfied. I have had a problem with ATM machine, and Bruno at evening has taken me with his motorbike to the right place to get money. He has suggested us a very good travel agency to... More

Bruno, the owner/manager and his mother simply go out of their way to be helpful, and made my stay very pleasant and comfortable. They helped me secure accommodation in Sao Luis, fixed me up with a take-out lunch sandwich for my jeep tour, and made very thoughtful recommendations. The room I had was very nicely air conditioned, with hot water,... More

It's pity that Barreirinhas isn't a place where you stay for long periods of time, spending leisurely afternoons in hotels lying on hammocks, because it's just a stopover point for visiting the sand dunes. But at Pousada São José you can do just that, ... if you have enough time. The family who runs the place takes care of you... More

This hotel had all we needed in Barreirinhas: . Super friendly and helpful staff. . Clean room with AC. (Note the rooms are quite small, but we only stayed there to sleep, so it's not a big deal). . Nice common area. Indeed, there is no pool, but why do you need one? The only drawback for us was the... More

We were only here for 1 night but wish we could have stayed longer. The staff really helped out - booked our mini bus to and from Sao Luis and also sorted out our 2 trips to the sand dunes. Everything was done for us we just turned up. Room was clean, had air con, fridge and provided towels. Breakfast... More

I would have rated our stay higher if not for the lack of sleep we experienced for the 3 nights we were at Sao Jose. Though no fault of the pousada's, the first 2 nights corresponded with a weekday party week that had stereos blaring in the neighborhood till past 2-3 am. The last night, after we reflected the noise... More

We stay at Pousada Sao Jose in August 2011 and couldn't be happier with our stay. The pousada is very nice with a great and cheap restaurant located in a garden along a small river. Perfect for chilling!!! Prices at the restaurant are much much cheaper than the ones at restaurants located in the Center. The pousada is managed by... More
