Nice, and very spacious bedrooms, walking distance from historical centre and beach a bit further away. Very nice breakfast with fresh tropical fruit and fresh juices. Not everybody speaks/understands English, but that is not exceptional in Brasil.

Normally we can find some redeeming factors even if things aren't perfect but we were just so frustrated by the end of our stay, I'm just going to list the things that contributed to the low rating: 1. We requested an upper floor room for security, the owner said he "didn't see the request" which was clearly noted on the... More

What a dream! After a friendly welcome, we were shown our room 'o quarto amarelo' (the yellow room). The room was bright, had lots of light and was classically but tastefully decorated. It was also functional with a table, a wardrobe, a mini bar (with normally priced beverages) and a bed with a comfy mattress. Both the room and the... More

I really enjoyed my stay in colonial-style Pousada Agua Viva. It was very practical : near the train station (rodoviaria) and not far at all from the center. The room was spacious, lovely and it smelt very good. The breakfast was delicious (tropical fruits, ham, cheese, cake) and served in your room. The inconvenient : they only accept cash.

PLUS: A pleasant place, run by friendly people, who really do not speak English. Breakfast is good and served in your room at a time that you determine. Location is good: around the corner from the bus terminal (don't bother with a taxi, which will charge a standard rate of R15 for the privilege of dropping you to the door)... More

Nice location very close to the centre but with a private parking lot. Clean rooms and good breakfast. However, we had a room close to the street, which was quite noisy. Receptionists do not speak English very well.

We went to Paraty on a weekend when they had one of their many festivals--and every hotel recommended to us in the old town was booked. What to do? We took a chance on Pousada Agua Viva after finding it at booking dot com (i never saw it here on tripadvisor). A restored house five minutes walk from the old... More

The colonial style house is beautiful and the rooms are big, but not much furniture. Very good location, not expensive stay, very friendly staff, good breakfast served at the room.

Me and my girlfriend loved our stay at the agua viva pousada in Paraty. It is a nice colonial house, rooms are colourful, lovely and spacious. And it is very close, even in the old center of the city. In Paraty, you have to choose between living in a "house" type pousada in the old center or one block from... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in May and found it by accident. We actually checked out of where we were staying to check in here. The location is great, 1 block from the bus station, and 1 block from the centre. The rooms are lovely and very clean, wooden floors, fresh crisp linen and comfortable beds. This pousada is... More
