Porto Preguicas Resort


Rating: Mid-range    

Porto Preguicas Resort overview

The hotel is built on the banks of the Preguicas River, set in pretty gardens. This is a peaceful location in which to relax between visits to the national park at Lencois Maranhenses, famous for mile upon mile of pale sand dunes interspersed with blue and green lagoons, a photogenic landscape that attracts visitors from all over the world.

Rooms and suites are spacious and simply styled, comfy and with a good range of amenities including air conditioning, TV, minibar and en-suite bathroom. Each leads out to a covered terrace where a hammock is strung between posts, an ideal place for a doze.  

The restaurant provides a broad range of dishes to suit all tastes, and the breakfast sets you up well for the day ahead. The bar is a good place to relax over a drink and get to know fellow guests, and includes a games area. Other recreational features include a swimming pool, a gym set beneath a thatched roof which is open-sided for a welcome breeze, and a massage area. Kayaks are available free of charge if you want to explore to the river.
