The place is clean, comfortable. Good A/C and excellent shower. (we were initially given a room with a microscopic bathroom which we refused and were moved to another with a large and very comfortable bathroom). The owners are very helpful and nice, attentive to your needs. They arranged for us an airplane to see the Lencois. Breakfast is very good.

This is my first review on Trip Advisor but will add a few more from my trip to Brasil during the Copa. Gets a 4 rating based on a value, cleanliness and service. Someone could argue the rooms are small but you're really only showering and sleeping in it so that didn't matter for us. My wife and I stayed... More

We spent 2 nights at Pousada Sao Jose and we have mixed feelings about it. Pros: - Very nice owners, ready to help you with any question. - Great food in their restaurant at a very cheap price, when compared to what is charged in town. - Excellent breakfast. - Safe guarded parking if you came with a car rental....

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

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
