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!

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
