This cute little place (only 6 rooms) is amazing! We stayed for 5 nights in January and even if the weather wasn't nice, we really enjoyed the place. Yvan and Roberto were really helpful and always available to give us tips about this nice town of Paraty. Rooms are small but everything you need is there and they are so... More

We stayed at Eliconial for 3 nights over Christmas, it was the best accommodation of our trip! Ivan, Ricardo and Roberto could not have been more friendly and helpful giving us lot of information about Paraty and places beyond. Our room, which was comfortable and well appointed, was set in the corner of the most delightful garden (more flowers than... More

It's a very nice little place with a very kind team! We felt very welcome and got a lot of very nice tipps about places to visit and tours to do! The only bad thing is the position, of course there is a nice beach in front of the doors, but the main city where you can find nice small... More

The pousada is beautiful, immaculately clean and tastefully furnished. The breakfasts were delicious. The staff are extremely friendly and work hard to assist in every way and provide a truly personal service. The animals (a stylish dalmatian, cats, a parrot and even wild monkeys!) were delightful. The pousada is located on a quiet street, a stone's throw from the beach... More

Ivan, Roberto and team could not have done more to make us feel at home and help with anything - restaurant recommendations, maps, booking tours - absolutely brilliant. The chalet was lovely and nice to have a little private veranda and hammock to chill out on. The pool was great - a welcome retreat from the heat of the beach.... More

My wife and I stayed here for three nights in early December and wish we had stayed longer. Ricardo and the team run a great pousada which feels like a home from home. They have cats, a dog, a parrot and the occasional monkey. The pool is lovely and situated in a pretty garden. The photos really don't do the... More

Apart from the fact that the Eliconial is a brilliant place to stay I really felt that the effort that the crew invested in our comfort was outstanding and their help in organizing part of our transport and transfers was crucial for the smoothness of our trip. The breakfast was delicious. The massage was outstanding. The rooms are very clean... More

Very nice place! Perfect bungalows,breakfast and pool-area! The management is really helpful and kind, and very good in english. Can really recommend this place when visiting Paraty. There are also monkeys Climbing in the trees, and you are allowed to feed them:)

My wife and I spent a week at Eliconial and it was fabulous. The facilities are excellent (beautiful pool, great sauna and steamroom) and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. Make sure you get restaurant advice from Roberto, every one was a gem. The staff were all exceptionally friendly and the eggs or crepes at breakfast were prepared on... More
