This was a convenient place to stay for one night after our visit to the Lençóis Maranhenses. It is not a luxury accommodation, but it is comfortable and pleasant. The Pousada is right on the river so there is a pretty view. The air conditioner worked well in our room. We had a delicious lunch at the hotel. One entree...

A lot of the hotels in Barreirinhas just have okay reviews. If you're well-traveled, then you may find the amenities and services offered in any hotel, lacking. Considering this, I found Pousado do Rio to be a great place to stay and here's why: The accommodations of the hotel were nice and clean. Everything in my room worked, including the...

The location and the layout is ok, as described in the other reviews. We planned our family trip in the area to have some tours every day. So, we left early and returned late afternoon. The restaurant at the pousada just serves lunch. There is NO dinner possible, only burgers which you can't eat. Honestly, I am really disappointed ......

This Pousada was a wonderful surprise. It has the best location right on the river, with river access. There is a little beach to sit on by the river with hammocks and lounge chairs. A swimming pool and deck where you can have drinks. The rooms are simple but clean and functional, double bed, single bed and bathroom. Fitted sheet...

Lovely hotel! You have a wonderful breakfast with a lot of fruits and also typical foods from this region. On the back yard you can get a fresh air looking at the river, relaxing on the swimming pool after a long day walking on the "Lençóis Maranhenses".

This comfortable Pousada is only a short enchanting walk from centro, but local tour operators know it well and will pick you up when you go on boat trips on the Rio Preguiças or hiking in the Lençois Maranhenses. Rooms are comfortable, with a hammock strung on each lanai. The air conditioner makes a terrible racket, so unless you have...

We reached Barreirinhas around 9:00 AM and went straight to the Pousada do Rio .The check in was fast and there was no problem as we enter the pousada early. The room we stayed in was small with a tube TV (old one) without cable service, with a small frigo bar (empty) and a small double bed. The mattress demonstrated...

This pousada was clean and quiet and has access to the river and is a short walk from the village/town. The room was clean and everything worked well. They provide a good breakfast, although if you are there for several days it is always the same. We payed around Rs115 per night double and felt it was good value. Could...

“Try to be away from reception and nearer the river if you like to sleep late, people get up early to have breakfast in the open dining room near reception. Walk up stairs if your room is on the 2nd floor. All rooms seem to be the same.”
