The eco pousada is amazing! the staff very friendly and helpful! Thanks to them we have organised some excursions and were just perfect! It seems to be in a farm, with lovely animals around, cats, dogs peacocks, parrots. It is very relaxing and the cleanliness is excellent. We had dinner in their restaurant (amazing setting) and it was there were... More

We stayed two nights at the Pousada Rancho do Buna and the atmosphere there is amazing! We travelled with 2 small children (2 and 4 years old) and we were made to feel so welcome and happy. We are very fond of animals and loved to see all the happy animals wandering about, petting the dogs and cuddling with kittens.... More

We stayed at Rancho do Buna for only one night during our trip to Lencois Maranhenses and it was a great experience, different from every hotel or "pousada" I have ever seen! The place itself is already stunning and on top of that the staff was also very friendly.Tim, the receptionist was very helpful, gave us all the tips and... More

Do not expect luxury but do expect the most loving and caring environment you can think of. Also think of a pet zoo with dogs, cats a mule and chicken who live up the place. Then think of Brazilian laid back life, a great fresh breakfast in the morning at the end of the world. Just add a pinch of... More

I would say this pousada is more than just a place to stay like what we usually expect from a hotel, it is actually a destination itself. The decoration is the one that impressed me most, very natural and very unique...I dont know how to describe it...you need to see it yourself. Beside the big garden and yard that can... More

We stayed at Rancho do Buna for 2 nights and really enjoyed our stay. The manager Monica was incredibly friendly and helpful, helped us organize our trip and even found us a last-minute hostel in Sao Luis. The rooms are very basic, but cosy. There is no hot water! Breakfast was delicious, with lots of different fruits, scrambled eggs, cereals... More

This pousada is a wonderful place to stay. It is a masterpiece made by Mr. Buna who built it just with palm trunks and palm leaves. It is located in a luxuriant park of tropical trees and green gras, with colourful peacocks flying around the blue swimming pool. Each room is a separated hut, furnished in style with its own...

Gives good access to the small Lencois and near-by attractions. Animals wander throughout the hotel's grounds leaving their traces. Ageing post-hippy atmosphere, with a touch of the farmyard.. Dinner is very poor, breakfast acceptable. Rooms are airless, window-less with primitive bathrooms and inadequate air-conditioning. This is a place for roughing it at luxury prices.

This resort isn't actually in Barreirinhas, it's in Atins, a small fishermen village. It's a very unique hotel, because Atins is not well served of Internet and phone, so it might or not work. The owner, Buna, is a very special person, who was born on that area, and love to tell his stories. Monica, his manager, used to live... More

This small hotel is Atins, a village of Barreirinhas-Maranhão. The place is very beautiful, but the hostel is far away, the heat is terrible (35º C) and there are many mosquitoes, the rooms are not very clean and has no air conditioning. He was offered a small desk fan that did not work right.
