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.

We stayed here for a few nights in March. The hosts Ricardo and Ivan and the rest of the staff are very friendly, helpfull, and want to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. The gardens are beautiful, full with tropical flowers and plants and with small monkeys comming down the trees being curious. Breakfast is next to the swimming... More

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
