After 3 days in Eliconial Pousada we want the clock to stop. A wonderful place to close the door to the everyday and enjoy the atmosphere in this garden of eden. The staff give you a warm home feeling and the location of the pousada is perfect regarding the sorroundings attractions. It is hard to find a better place to... More

Acredito que nunca tenha ficado numa pousada onde todos soubessem e nos chamavam pelo nome. Algo tão simples, mas que faz uma grande diferença... Você se sente ainda mais bem vindo! O lugar é lindo, super acolhedor, tranquilo e com muito verde! Todos são muito cordiais e prontos para ajudar com o que for. O café é muito gostoso e... More

The hubby & I decided to take a weekend trip away from the bustle of Impanema ~ Rio de Janeiro, rent a car and head out to the lovely, sleepy town of Paraty. The 3.5 hr drive was definitely interesting but all-in-all pretty easy. The map took us on a bit of an adventure when we got into Paraty, but... More

Eliconial is the perfect place if you want some peace and quiet, in front of the beach. We stayed two nights and enjoyed the place, the hot tub in the evening, the peaceful atmosphere, the cats, dog, monkeys, parrot hanging out, our pretty room, the breakfast, all of it :-) The beach is across the street and you have a...

It's been a year since we visited Brasil, but now that a friend asked me where we stayed in Paraty, I thought I really should write a review about it. This place was without a doubt my favorite stop in Brazil. We loved that the pousada was near the sea and out of the centre, and the owners were just... More

Located on a quiet street in the quietest part of Paraty, this Pousada was blissfully relaxing. The grounds are meticulously designed to optimize relaxation, cuteness and comfort. From the beautiful breakfast/tea area right beside the pool to the hot tub and sauna everything is first rate. The rooms/cabins are cute, romantic, and well appointed. But, what truly sets this place... More

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!
