Great location, very good swimming pool and infrastructure in general, nice caipirinhas, reasonably good restaurant, all true... but there is obviously something wrong with staff and the way the hotel is run. Service was poor: reception, bar and restaurant staff idle yet not available to customers, mistakes in orders from the kitchen, overall rudeness about our requests (even made in good, understandable Portuguese, which we speak fluently). More importantly, staff just looks miserable and unhappy to be there. Insisting a lot to understand what was wrong with working there, a scared looking receptionist confessed that there had been a lot of turnover lately.
We wrote polite and matter-of-fact comments about our experience to the hotel manager, leaving an e-mail address for reply and two weeks later still haven't heard from him.
In short: think well about what you expect from the hotel and if it is a warm human experience that is so easy to get all around Brazil then don't go.

A very good option to stay in Barreirinhas! Is true that the service is somehow slow, so taking the situation with holiday patience is a good tip.
The common areas (like restaurant, play area, etc.) are very nicely decorated. Rooms are more spartan in decoration, but no relevant items are missing.
Very good breakfast, good restaurant options.

Rooms are spacious and clean. Generous breakfast in a very exotic decorated dining room, good food but very slow service at lunch or diner. Very hard to communicate with staff as no one speaks any foreign language. Nice swimming pool and garden. Overall, a good and nice place to stay in this area!

We stayed there on a visit to the Lençois Maranheses and found the resort a real place to rest with a great decoration inspired by the local handcraft of Brasil.

The service is correct although this is not the best part of it. The food is really worth the try and especially the moqueca with fish or with shrimps. The shrimps with curry are also fantastic !!! The caipirinha at the bar are presented quite differently than what you can find in Brasil but for sure you can go ahead and try all the great fruit of Brasil.

The swimming pool is relaxing and you can enjoy a great rest: There is sand at the bottom which is unusual and gives a sense of sea water !!

The bedroom is large and though simple you can rest and have a very good night of sleep.

A bit rustic but with privare cabins and adequate accomodations, this "resort" is the best option in Barrerinhas when visiting the Lencois Maranhenses or taking a trip on the Rio Preguicas. What the rooms lack in charm is somewhat compensated by the landscaping, pool, and food quality.

The hotel is spralled out with aboundant palm trees and flowers, and has a sauna (ask ahead to use), two swimming pools, and a airy, large restaurant and lounge. Internet access (wireless) is spotty. The food is better than average in the restaurant, and the breakfast offerings extensive (and included in the fare). This is not a resort in the pampered spa category, yet earns its name by being so much better than local options, and offering tranquility and beauty to its guests.

Everything was great, clean and big rooms, delicious swimming pool with sand. I still dream with the breakfasts and the tapiocas. Great reastaurant, we ate there every day. Search no more.
