Everything that everyone else has said about this Pousada is just on the spot and more! The hosts Michael and Josiane are wonderful hosts, very attentious and make sure that you have all your needs attended. Michael is Swiss and if this is any indication of the perfectionism of the Swiss, the rooms have attention to details in decor and construction that is unexpected in such remote place. The room we stayed was very spacious and so was the bathroom, contrary to other places we traveled in Brazil. As others have said, the pousada is across the river from downtown Barreirinhas, and this is actually a advantage because you feel in a private paradise. They hosts arranged a private car to take us from Sao Luis to Barreirinhas in the evening after we arrived at the airport, as we had only 2 days in Lencois. The negotiated price was fair and we later found out that was the best price arranged.
We took the well worthy trip to Cabure'. This is such an amazing remote beach and I just regret that the company tour only let us stay there for a couple of hours. If you take the trip, as soon as you get there, there will be lots of restaurants to get your business. Just walk over to the other side (to the beach side) and there is another restaurant that offers fresh fish and shrimp for 30% cheaper, and staying on the other side is so much more romantic and less commercialized. We regret that we didn't know about the other side's restaurant, and we placed our order with the front restaurant as soon as we got there and went exploring the area then. Cabure, Vassouras and Lencois feel like paradise. It's rustic and remote, but yet nature at its best.
The only regret we have is that we didn't stay at the Pousada at least a couple days more. By the way, we had the peixada at the pousada and it was home cooked at this best, beautiful dish well made and sooooo plentiful! We didn't even go Barreirinhas to eat, but we have not regrets.
You can't go wrong staying at this Pousada. Thank you, Michael and Josiane for our wonderful stay!
