We spent 4 nights at the delightful Eliconial Pousada. Arriving after a long journey from Rio, we were warmly greeted by Roberto who invited us for coffee and cake. The grounds are remarkable - beautifully landscaped to look like a mini rain forest. We were shown to our chalet which was full of character. The next morning we met some... More

Eliconial was a perfect balance: walkable distance to the historical center, but far enough away for peace and quiet. Beautiful setting, great service and support, nice breakfast, wonderful pool - just long enough for some laps every night, lovely rooms. Everything was great. Ricardo, Yvan, and Roberto were always ready to help. Would love to stay there again.

After spending a week in Rio during Carnaval, my friend and I traveled by bus to Paraty for a 4 night stay. The Eliconial is peaceful, friendly, beautiful, and restful with a sparkling pool, lush landscaping, a resident parrot, dog, monkeys, and cats. Best of all is the outstanding service of Yvan, Ricardo and Roberto as well as the rest... More

Eliconial is simply one of the best place to stay in Paraty! The interior and exterior are really beautiful with setting of tropical forest, facilities are superb from big swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna, massage, canoe, and really tasty breakfast with eggs and dessert made by request, and not to forget free cakes and tea/coffee everyday in the afternoon. Location itself... More

Great rooms, breakfast and location. Perfect for a quiet and peaceful visit. It is not in the downtown area but the beach and few bars are located close by. The downtown area is a 15 min walk along the beach.

Our group stayed 5 nights at the Eliconial. Walking in the pousada was like entering a small area of paradise. Yvan, Ricardo and Roberto were always making sure our accommodation was perfect. We felt extremely safe and secure. The ladies who prepared most of the food and cleaned our rooms always had a smile. We did use the pool, hot... More

My daughter & I travelled to Paraty from São Paulo & stayed in the Eliconial Pousda for 3 nights. It was wonderful. The staff were fantastic; the setting exotic with a beautiful pool & gardens. The breakfasts consisted of the tastiest eggs I've ever eaten!!! The crepes cooked by Yvan were delicious too. Yvan, Ricardo & Roberto couldn't do enough... More

After 5 days in Rio this was the perfect place for rest & ralaxation. This wonderful small Pousada is a beautiful tropical paradise. The gardens and pool were just lovely and a home made breakfast is served in an indoor/outdoor area next to the pool amongst the lush trees and plants complete with a resident parrot. Our room was in... More

We stayed longer at this place as we initially planned to stay because it is a wonderful Pousada. The rooms are clean, have a high standard (we loved especially the hammock) and the garden is very pretty with a lot of colorful flowers, birds and cute apes. You can swim in the pool. Ricardo and Roberto speak perfect English what... More
