We could only spend three days in Croce del Sud, but would have liked to stay longer in this wonderful resort. Especially the beautiful surroundings, tranquility and every day a delicious breakfast made it a memorable holiday. We certainly want to come back again.

This review is long overdue. Stayed at Croce del Sud in 2012 and loved it. Was very pleased to see that it recieved a Top Choice selection. The location of Croce del Sud is perfect. Although a little far away from the center of Paraty the location brings a sense of serenity and stillness. The view from the balcony every... More

Even though our stay was just for one night, we loved Croce del Sud and wish we could have extended our trip! The view from the flat is incredible, and the breakfast was a treat. If you don't rent a car in Paraty, do remember to factor in that a cab from the center is around USD$25. If you have... More

The resort is beautiful with a personal touch. There are three houses (two outside, one in the middle). The parking lot is in front of each house (as other people already mentioned - you do need a car). We were the only guests for that weekend, at the resort. Since we wanted to relax, for us it was outstanding. It... More

The view! The view is the reason you should choose this Pousada. If you like the typical three to four star hotel feel when you go away this place is not for you. The accommodation is very simple, although it had all the necessities. The bed was also very comfortable, and thats all you need! One of our favourite parts... More

The chalets are beautifully located and the view is just the view you need to feel in peace. Breakfast in the morning was certainly my favorite time: eating quality food on the balcony, watching the sea and my beautiful girlfriend. The location is remote so you are going to need the car to visit the main beaches and Paraty, but... More

Luca is a delightful man and I wish him well. His property has spectacular views and it is fairly priced. However it is very basic and does not have the facilities one might expect from a four and a half star rating. Clearly given the ratings he has received this is what most of his guests want.We come from Northern... More
