“Friendly service, comfortable lodgings, pity about the rooster”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2011

I would have rated our stay higher if not for the lack of sleep we experienced for the 3 nights we were at Sao Jose. Though no fault of the pousada's, the first 2 nights corresponded with a weekday party week that had stereos blaring in the neighborhood till past 2-3 am. The last night, after we reflected the noise issue and moved from the room closest to the gate to another room in the middle of the pousada, our sleeping plans were unfortunately thwarted again by an errant rooster!
Besides the lack of sleep, we did enjoy staying at Pousada Sao Jose, a simply set-up pousada run by the friendly Bruno and his mother. The breakfast spread was delicious and they are flexible and helpful, with Bruno giving us and our huge luggages a ride to the bus station on his motorbike at the end of it all. Too bad about the rooster. Oh yes, and internet access would be nice too.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2011

We stay at Pousada Sao Jose in August 2011 and couldn't be happier with our stay. The pousada is very nice with a great and cheap restaurant located in a garden along a small river. Perfect for chilling!!! Prices at the restaurant are much much cheaper than the ones at restaurants located in the Center. The pousada is managed by a super friendly family who will provide you with consideration, advices, tips and local insight. It feels like staying with locals and be part of their family. They also have a secured indoor parking for your car with 24h security which was great as we reached Barreirinhas with a car rental. The rooms are simple but clean and functional. The pousada is located 5mn walking to the center where you will find shopping places, bars and restaurants. It is also very quiet. Excellent value, 100% recommended!!!

I just stayed on this hotel with a friend and the owners were amazing with us, specially when I got really sick and they helped me a lot. It´s a pretty familiar place with nice beds and conforting bedrooms. They are well related with the agencies in the city and provided very good tips on the whereabouts of the "Lençois".

Pousada run by Rosalie and her son Bruno.
She was so helpfull during our stay! She arranged for me and my friend a tour to the lençois and accommodation in Caburé.
Rooms are simple and very clean (our matress was a bit old). Breafast by the river was excellent and the lunch that Roselie cooked for us was very good!

We spent only one night in this lovely place during our trip in Cearà and Maranhao..
We found it really nice and confortable. Is it possible to eat at every hour and to relax in the garden of the hotel.
it is managed by a mother and her son: they are really sweet and made us feel like at home although we couldn't speak the same language.
