This place was great. Non heated pool too cool for off season. Decent breakfast with cake every morning. Lots of people brought families, so I imagine it's not always the quietest place. Couple blocks front the beach. Very helpful and accommodating staff. Bar service in the afternoons...very generous. Only thing that could be better was the shower pressure. We met... More

Nice pousada, very clean and quiet. A wonderful view towards the bay from the private terrasse of the room. Convenient location 5 minutes walk to the old city. On the top of it, a friendly and efficient welcome by Patricia.

The hotel is nice, it is well located, and the view, if you are priced with one of the highest rooms, is amazing. The swimming pool is nice and the breakfast is on average. But the best ot the hotel is the warm attention, from all its employees and also from the manager. I strongly recommend this hotel.

We were pleasantly surprise with this quaint hotel. The upper rooms have a fantastic view of the Bay (we had one of these rooms). The service was very good. We had a language barrier but found a helpful staff member who did speak English. The room was clean it had a fridge, TV (limited channels) and a hammock; it was... More

The hotel is on a hill just out of the historical centre with views of the bay from the higher rooms, and is much cheaper than the hotels in town. The rooms are quite small and open directly onto the pool area. Staff are friendly and helpful, and the person in charge speaks English. The breakfast (included) is basic but... More

We stayed for 3 nights in this fantastic pousada. The location is perfect as it is a 2 minute walk from the old town and has great views toward the water. The rooms are clean and all overlook the pool area. It is easy to meet other guests at the pool/bar area. The barman will make fresh juices and caiprinhas... More

I really recommend this pousada to anyone who has the misfortune to visit Paraty. Crucially, it's outside the city centre, and so it has a good view, is less moquito ridden than other places and is peaceful. The breakfast was good and the evening caipiroskas were the best we had in Brazil. The staff were helpful and nice. The rooms... More
