Lovely hotel! You have a wonderful breakfast with a lot of fruits and also typical foods from this region. On the back yard you can get a fresh air looking at the river, relaxing on the swimming pool after a long day walking on the "Lençóis Maranhenses".

The room we stayed in was small with a tube TV (old one) without cable service, with a small frigo bar (empty) and a small double bed. The mattress demonstrated... More

This pousada was clean and quiet and has access to the river and is a short walk from the village/town. The room was clean and everything worked well. They provide a good breakfast, although if you are there for several days it is always the same. We payed around Rs115 per night double and felt it was good value. Could... More
