The result of having an artist owner with studio within the premises is a beautifully decorated interior and informal way of doing things. The artist even helps makes a super delicious and healthy breakfast with local ingredients, perfect before a long day's hike. Cannot recommend this place enough one of the best we stayed in during our 3-week trip in...

The main house is a restoration / replication of a grand home built during the hay days of diamond exploration. It is tastefully done as one might expect from a talented artist and gentleman. It is in perfect harmony with the surrounding city and makes you feel that you are living over a century ago, but with modern conveniences. It...

Alcino's is an amazing place to stay in the Chapadas Diamantinas. Alcino I'd an amazing man, a font of local knowledge, beloved by the town of Lençois. We asked our stay and would return in a heartbeat to stay in his pousada. The breakfast was incredible, the art and grounds beautiful and charming... I really can't say enough to sing...

We chose Alcino's Pousada based on TripAdvisor feedback and were NOT disappointed. Location is close enough to the bus station (5 min walk) and 5 min walk to the central square/plaza area. Alcino (calm and charming) welcomed us. Tired from the bus trip, he carried my suticase up the stairs and said to just take our time. He was in...

It was late at night when we arrived at Lençois and we didn't book a place to stay. When we walked by Alcino's colonial house we decided to ask for a room. Everything inside is very nice and he even had some cheaper rooms with shared bathrooms (clean all the time)! So that was already perfect for us. But what...

Alcino, the man and his pousada, offer many treats-he built the home himself and creates lovely tile which adorns the area and is available for sale. His breakfasts are something to be experienced using simple but amazing recipes from around the world...miniature date tartlets...kibbeh a , crepes,eggs, baked bananas, fresh tropical fruit- the menu changes daily and is a feast...

It is nice to be in a charming place and feel at home at the same time. It is how you feel at Alcino's. The rooms are spacious and wonderful, the house is nicely decorated, calm and with a superb courtyard. Alcino is a perfect host and all the people working there are extremely welcoming. By far, the best breakfast...

We were delighted with our visit to Lencois. The pousada was gorgeous, and the breakfast was exquisite--superbly prepared tastes of Bahian cuisine. As a family of five we stayed in the cottage away from the main house. Alcino designed the cottage with antique doors as well as modern touches. Plenty of room for sleeping for 5 and a private living...
