we stayed in Eliconial for 3 nights. This pousada is a pardise in which we definitly would book a room again. Arriving there we were warmly welcomed by very friendly hosts. They also showed us some nice places to visit and recommended some fantastic restaurants. And indeed their recommandations were very worth it! Thank you very much for having us... More

We just completed a 4 night stay at this beautiful accommodation located 40 mins walk from the historic centre of Paraty. Ricardo is the consummate host. Nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast crepes he prepared for us were delicious. The chalets are roomy and immaculately clean. Breakfast is amazing and the short walk to jabaquarra beach is a delight.... More

We had an excellent stay from the very first minute we walked in (with a late check-in) until our last day, when one of the property managers kindly offered us a lift to the bus station on our way back home. The pousada is very well kept and managed, rooms are cosy and decorated with taste; the garden is truly... More

We stayed here for 3 nights on our journey down the Coast from Rio to Sao Paolo. Paratay is a fantastic place to stop on a journey in this area. The old colonial town is stunning and a great place to spend time. Great restaurants. It's not cheap though! (Although where in Brazil is?) The guest house is lovely. You... More

My husband and I had a really lovely time at the Eliconial Pousada. We stayed there as a relaxing end of our Brazil trip. I loved everything about it. The property is lush and beautiful. Each room is like it's own little bungalow, complete with a hammock outside. The beds are tempurpedic or something like that- soft and firm at... More

So nice and friendly staff! Lovely breakfast. Try the homemade Brasilian cheese rolls. Creps and omelettes so very tasty! A short walk to historical center but who cares.... Excellent food at La Luna on the beach.

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
