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".

This comfortable Pousada is only a short enchanting walk from centro, but local tour operators know it well and will pick you up when you go on boat trips on the Rio Preguiças or hiking in the Lençois Maranhenses. Rooms are comfortable, with a hammock strung on each lanai. The air conditioner makes a terrible racket, so unless you have... More

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
