The bungalows are very romantic, with a small terrace and hammock in front. Breakfast is absolutely sufficient and you can watch colibris and tiny monkey-families playing in the palms around the pool. Extremely friendly and heplful people (especially Roberto) who can give good tips. Perfect accomodation if you look for a retreat from big cities. Perfect and safe place ,... More

We enjoyed a great time at Eliconial: the entire staff was friendly and supportive, providing valuable advices about activities, transportation and restaurants. Really important when you don't have much time. The pousada is comfortable and perfectly tropical styled, with monkeys and parrots in the garden. Location requires a taxi ride from Paraty, especially in night hours. Recommended.

We spent eight nights at Eliconial after travelling throughout Brazil the previous nine weeks. Ricardo and Yvan and their staff were gracious and generous hosts. We enjoyed the beautifully maintained grounds and pool. Breakfast was fresh and varied. Proximity to great beach bars and restaurants meant we could stay close to the pousada and still get away. Our apartment allowed... More

This was the best place we stayed in Brasil. The staff were so friendly and helpful. The rooms were fabulous and the welcome fruit was a lovely touch. Breakfast was varied and plentiful and whilst the pousada was a bit out of town we enjoyed walking in during the evening and getting a taxi home. Lovely beach bars and restaurants... More

The pousada looks like a 5 star hotel out of a Conde Naste magazine cover: exotic plants, hot tub, pool, private bungalows... On top caring for the pousada, the owners really care their guests. When we we had to take off early before breakfast was ready to be served to catch a boat transfer, they bagged us pastries and fresh... More

We loved this place. Such a great laid back vibe. Rooms are well furnished and little touches like Netflix on the TV to pass the time during the odd downpour were appreciated. Breakfast was great - definitely try the crepes...they were perfect. The town itself is a easy 20 min walk away but the beach at the end of the... More

Eliconial is genuinely a wonderful place to stay and being at the far end of Jabaquara Beach means it is tremendously quiet and peaceful. We have just returned from several nights there and our stay was virtually faultless. The whole pousada is kept spotlessly clean, all the staff are friendly and pleasant without being overtly 'in your face', and breakfast... More

Set amongst a lush tropical garden, at the quiet end of a safe and beautiful beach, with hosts that want to make your time feel special and relaxed and with rooms that are large, clean and full of character, Eliconial is a truely memorable place. Although the grounds are not huge, they are well designed so that there are many... More

We have travelled a lot of the world and have stayed in a range of accommodation from horrible hostels to 5-star hotels. We have never posted a review for a restaurant, hotel or attraction before, however we felt compelled to write our first review for Eliconial Paraty Pousada. We came across Eliconial when looking for an extra night accommodation in... More

Together with our fifteen year old daughter(yes! good free wifi) we spend 6 nights during the Christmas period and enjoyed every minute. If you like tranquility and hospitality this is your place to stay . Thanks again roberto for the birthday cake you made me for my 50th anniversary.
