It is overall a good place to stay, although a little overpriced. The place is really beautiful, by the river. Staff is very helpful and nice, they help you with anything. Rooms are clean. However, the place has some negative aspects. It is far from the city center, impossible to walk, and taxis are expensive (20 reais any ride). The... More

If I consider where this pousada is, I probably could be more generous with my review.. the fact is that the rooms are dark, with very bad light. Air condition is very noisy and old. Wifi is ok. In the garden where is a nice pool, the breakfast is not particulary well presented. The pousada is far from the center... More

The place is located outside the village, it is very nice and calm. I would recommend it with not doubts. People doesn't speak English as often in the nordeste but they are helpful and with few words of Portuguese and google translation we succeed to book our transfer to Parnaiba. The restaurant is not very good but correct and the... More

Pretty nice Pousada a little bit outside of the city with a very good restaurant depending from the pousada near the river. Staff is helpful and the garden with the swiimming pool is really nice. Even if outside of the city, they can organize everything for you with the same price for the excursions like if you tried to deal... More

We loved Encantes do Nordeste. Would hightly recommend! We were travelling Brazil on a budget and decided to spend a little more for a nice stay in Barreirinhas while we explorde Lencois Park and area. The resort is spectacularly beautiful with bright cabins, lush gardins, manicured lawns, a cute pool area, a riverside restaurant and tasty breakfasts. One staff person... More

The pousada could be placed closer to the centre, as you need to go by taxi, or moto-taxi from to the village. It's the only disadvantage. The rest is OK. We stayed there 3 days. After the arrival we asked for booking tours for us at the reception. The staff gave us trip suggestions and organized everything we asked for.... More

Nice place just outside town. Ideal for joining the boat trips to Cabure as it is close to the river. The rooms are small cabins, pretty basic but clean and with a small porch and hammock. There is a TV and mini bar in each room and the rooms are air-conditioned. Other than drinks you can only get breakfast in... More
