The pousada is amazing! In terms of location - if you are looking to stay at the historic center - it does not get any better. The hotel dependencies are beautiful, they are a monument on their on, and definitely keep you on the "colonial vibe". Service in Paraty is great in general but the hotel staff is extra friendly...

We were 6 friends and a baby that stayed at this pousada last week. We had an amazing time and much of it thanks to the helpful staff at the pousada. They provided great advice on boat trips, helped organize our spa visit, recommended good restaurants and were generally helpful and pleasant about everything. This is probably the best service...

This colonial B&B is beautifully maintained, charming and quite comfortable. I love the lacquered doors. Pool is small but, very inviting; we spent the hot afternoons submerged there. The location is great. Yes, the wifi is limited....so what? I was on vacation, I don't think we need to be connected all the time. Staff were helpful and friendly. Enjoyed the... More

The breakfast dining room is almost in itself worth a visist, generating a colonial feeling. The breakfast itself is of course excellent. Friendly staff, a cozy bar with expert caipirinhas, lounge area pool and very comfortable and stylish rooms make this a gem in Paraty.

Very nice colonial B&B/boutique hotel. We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived as we didn't know what to expect. We booked a big room for 4. Two adults and 2 children. The room was a duplex suite. On the higher level you have the queen size bed, and in the lower level you have the bathroom, 2 single beds, a... More

Faultless. The small bedroom and bathroom was perfectly adequate, but take a travel kettle, coffee and milk powder if you like an early morning or late evening cup of coffee as there are no coffee facilities in the rooms. Also the fridge and air-con was quite loud at night, but nothing too bad. I would upgrade to a superior room... More

Pousada do Ouro is a charming hotel in the middle of historic Paraty. The room was perfect and so was the overall decoration, very friendly service. The only thing we could miss was a pousada-feeling. It can be a bit unpersonal as it feels more like a proper hotel. But the experience was charming and we would certainly recommend a... More

We stayed for a couple of nights in a wonderful superior room at Pousada do Ouro. Peaceful, tranquil setting in a garden setting. Nice swimming pool, though it is on the small side so tricky to get a sun bed if you arrive after everyone else. It took a while to get served our drinks, but juices were fresh and... More

We stayed for 3 nights and were very impressed. It's a beautiful historical building and the location is perfect - in the old town, but not on one of the really touristy streets. We got the room we asked for (in the main building on the first floor, looking out to the front with a great view) and it was... More
