We spent two nights in this great pousada. Excellent welcome by Michael and his wife. The garden is fabulous, the place by the river is super quiet. We could enjoy for free the canoe kayak. Lots of fun. The food is excellent, both the breakfast and the dinner we had. A place we will highly recommend to any friend who... More

This charming guest house has just four bungalows set in a lush garden running down to a little beach and bathing in the clean river (upriver from the town). The owners were very accommodating and friendly, running us into town in the speed boat to join excursions, and collecting us afterwards. If you want a hotel in the heart of... More

Of all the places my family and I stayed during our 4 week trip to Brasil this was the best pousada by far!!!! Michael and his wife Josiane made us feel at home and welcome from the first minute! The pousada is extremely lovely, every little detail was thought through. Our room was spacious, spotless and very nicely decorated. Michael... More

Unfortunatelly we spent only 1 night at this gorgeous pousada. There are only 4 beautiful cottages in a lovely, calm garden. Rooms are tastfully equipped with all amenities. Swiss owner Michael is extremly friendly & helpful- organized our trip to Laguna Bonita and a boat trip next day within minutes. Meals are excellent, so it doesn´t make much sense to... More

I've been there 10 years ago. It was very, really wild. Thus, we got regular meals (hehehe) and a perfect interaction with local people, including owners. barely had light at night. Now, all renewed and well kept. Unfortunately places improve. and lucky us if they keep the wild spirit.

This is a great pousada, one of the best I ever stayed at. The rooms are large, the beds comfortable, and the food is superb. As other reviewers have said, the food here is possibly better than most of the other options in town. They are at a good price range also. The owners (Michael and Josiane) are great people... More

Small, intimate Pousada with only four rooms situated on the banks of the River Preguica. Accomodations leave nothing to be desired, rooms are beautifully decorated, impeccably clean, large and comfortable, with a hammock on the front porch to enjoy the tropical setting. Michael, the Swiss owner, is there to pick you up upon arrival in Barreirinhas to whisk you by... More

He's a swiss who settled in Brazil some 15 years ago. So he knows English, Portuguese, German and maybe more languages and that really helps. When you get off the bus from Sao Luis, Michael is there with his speed boat to pick you up at the river front. And then he zips you through the waters to his pousada.... More
