The pousada is a good walk (like 20min) from the historical center but it's all worth it! It's a really charming and beautiful pousada with a delicious breakfast and in the afternoon a coffee/tea moment with some cake! The staff is super friendly and will help you with all your questions. They make you feel at home and they will... More

Pousada Eliconial is located in the Jabaquara area, about 20 minutes from Paraty historic center. Be aware of that before booking. It can be an advantage if you are looking for a quiet place away from the touristy areas. Ivan and Ricardo are very friendly hosts.They speak at least 3 languages. They accomodated us with a very special attention. They... More

My wife and I spent four nights at the Pousada Eliconial. From our lovely room, almost its own cottage, to the garden and pool, to breakfast on the terrace facing the pool, to the kind, generous, and helpful staff, everything about our stay was a delight. Yvan, the owner, was knowledgeable about things to see and do, places to eat,... More

I can certainly recommend a stay at Elicolonial. We stayed for 3 days and enjoyed a lot. The multilingual staff is very welcoming, helpfull, and provides an amazing breakfast in the morning. The place, with all its facilities and tropical appearance, is perfect to relax in those moments in between your trips. Excellent stay!

Eliconial is the kind of place you dream you are going to get when you book accommodation. The service was fantastic, especially the eggs and crepes cooked to order for breakfast, and they really care about your whole trip in Paraty, including where to eat (La Luna is a must) and visit. We will definitiely be going back.

Good breakfast too, you get the feeling that people who work there care very much. If there is no sun, one can stay at the hotell and do... More
