We stayed at this Pousada recently on a world cup trip to Brazil. We needed a break from the craziness of Rio and Paraty was certainly that. The town itself is beautiful as are the beaches and nearby mountains. The Eliconial was fabulous. The guys that run the hotel are very friendly and helpful with local information, what to do,...

The whole experience was first class! We could not of been made to feel more welcome by the staff. Yvan, Ricardo and Roberto were always at hand and more than happy to offer advice. The ladies were brilliant too. The resident pets (a Dalmatian, parakeet and 6 cats, plus visiting wild monkeys) made the stay much more special. The breakfast... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for five nights on our way to Rio. We had such an amazing experience. The place is very cute, quaint, quiet, and clean. They even had monkeys hanging from the trees. The pool is lovely and the breakfasts were the best meals of the day. Fresh fruit, tasty local bread and crepes! The hosts... More

We had a wonderful stay at the eliconial. The owners/staff could not have been more friendly, kind and helpful. The Accommodation itself is authentic, comfortable, clean and modern. Poolside and jacuzzi lovely! A perfect place to relax and enjoy with walking distance to everything. Definitely worth the money!

A stunning place to stay. The rooms are immaculate. The bed: super comfortable with nets. The pool was a good temperature with seating areas around. And Ricardo and his crew were the most friendly of our tour of Brazil.. and that's SOME competition! Stay here and you'll be seconds from the beach, get the chance to feed the local family... More

We stayed to Eliconial this days and we are very pleased about location(near the beach), about the services and the spectacular inside garden. The rooms are intimate and you are surrounded by the sounds of amazing birds. The location is near the bus station to Paraty downtown(5 minutes until there) or you can have a taxi which is cheap(25-30 ri).... More

Eliconial is not set in the town centre, fact which might be seen as a disadvantage to some. However, the positioning is good considering the town itself is pretty small. They have parking places in the garden, which makes it very helpful. Upon arrival, you enter the property and are instantly charmed by the wonderful garden, pool and houses. It... More

Eliconial had everything. We were looking for a getaway, and we were amply rewarded. The place runs and feels like an exclusive hotel. Our room had a lounge, and a spare loft room. The garden was absolutely glorious. Monkeys and humming birds were frequently seen. The pousada had a lovely pool and a jacuzzi, which was what we needed to... More

We spent 4 nights at the delightful Eliconial Pousada. Arriving after a long journey from Rio, we were warmly greeted by Roberto who invited us for coffee and cake. The grounds are remarkable - beautifully landscaped to look like a mini rain forest. We were shown to our chalet which was full of character. The next morning we met some... More

Eliconial was a perfect balance: walkable distance to the historical center, but far enough away for peace and quiet. Beautiful setting, great service and support, nice breakfast, wonderful pool - just long enough for some laps every night, lovely rooms. Everything was great. Ricardo, Yvan, and Roberto were always ready to help. Would love to stay there again.
