Internet did not work, and the staff at reception was not apologetic (their reaction sort of being that of surptrise when I was asking about wifi... Am i the first tourist to aask if there is wifi in the hotel and to complain if it doesn't work?) The food at the restaurant is average at best. The pizzas are definitely... More

The hotel looks really good, but other than that it was a terrible experience. On our first meal, they got ALL of our orders wrong. Every single dish we ordered there was bad, and took forever. We asked for a bread with cheese once, and they said they wouldn't serve it, even though they admitted having both bread and cheese... More

The person at the reception, whoever, is like a bear with a sore head ! Never encounter such a poor sense of hospitality. As a consequence the few tourists there look very sad. The rooms are very basic but clean,air conditionning is ok as well as warm shower.Bed is comfortable nothing fancy,there is a safe in the room.(room 311) Be... More

The other travelers are right, it's the best place to stay when visiting Lençois, but simply because you have no other option. Starting with the good points, the hotel area is very nice, specially the main pool, and well maintained. Rooms are very spacious. And that's about it. The biggest issue is the poor service, especially in the restaurant. It... More

It is the best option in Lençois, for sure! Wonderful relaxing place, with some sports activities and fabulous pool place (sand floor with river water)!!! The restaurant food is amazing but it takes too much time to be served. The overall service is very below average for the level and price of the resort. Far from the Barreirinhas city but... More

We went there as a couple for four nights end June. It's a luxury resort especially considering the other accommodation options. The bungalows are very spacy and clean. The facilities are a big pool, sports, billard, etc. The love for details is extraordinary. Sculptures, paintings, decoration and all perfectly assorted. The food was great. Especially the cabrito roast (veal) we... More

Definitely THE place to stay while visiting the beautiful Lencois Maranhensis. It's located outside the town of Barreirinhas, but you don't miss anything, the resort has a nice garden, a pool and a good restaurant and bar. The rooms are independent bungalows, with big bedrooms and bathrooms: unfortunately, windows have no glass and only shutters. A lot of mosquitoes around... More

The resort is located at the river Preguicas and it's a place to relax for a few days. No need to leave the hotel as the amenities, restaurant and bar are quite good and offers a good variety of options. The options outside the hotel can be arranged at the front desk-- Lencois Maranhenses and a tour in the river.... More
