We had a fab stay at eliconial. The rooms and gardens combine to create a relaxing and tropical ambiance. The breakfast was great, particularly the freshly prepared crepes. Yvan and the team are friendly and super helpful. The location is at the edge of the town, meaning a 20 minute walk or 30 real taxi but this caused no issues... More

After traveling around Brazil for a bit (Iguassu, Rio, Ilha Grande), we ended our trip in Paraty. While its a good walk from the central area of Paraty, its on a quiet and safe street. Once you go through the gates, you are in an immediate oasis. The pool area is lush, the cabanas are huge (with an amazing shower)... More

Yvan, the owner, is very welcoming and kind. His small but well equipped posada has only 6 rooms which allows for a very relaxed atmosphere. The breakfasts are great and so is the location, with a pool, jacuzzi, sauna and wonderful lounge area. The rooms are very pretty and elegant. We really enjoyed our stay and felt pampered throught the... More

I stayed at Eliconial with a friend for 2 days during our trip through Brazil to Argentina, and it has been the best hotel with the best service I have experienced so far. The rooms are lovely and there is a pool, sauna and jacuzzi for guests to use, as well as massage therapists on hand. Breakfast is cooked for... More

We stayed for two nights in Eliconial as part of a tour from Rio to Buenos Aires. At first we were a little unsure as we were so far from Paraty itself but Roberto welcomed us in and quickly set about putting our minds at ease. Although the facilities at Eliconial are very nice, (sauna, jacuzzi, swimming pool and my... More

My husband and I stayed at Eliconial for three lovely nights. We loved every second of our stay. The pousada is based in a charming setting at the end of a main beach. The pousada is about a 20 min walk to the main area of the town. We were ok with this because our front yard was a beach... More

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
