A three-night stay the weekend prior to Carnaval was both relaxing and rewarding. Although we encountered rain, it did not diminish our enthusiasm for the lovely, comfortable ambiance and the inn's service with a smile. We found everything worth seeing within easy walking distance, especially some of the town's top restaurants. Breakfast was delicious and when we asked reception about... More

Excellent breakfast in the morning and great cocktails in the evening by the pool. The location is perfect to explore the natural of beauty of Paraty. The Mamanguá tropical fjord... More

You sense it's going to be special when you see the photos of previous guests such as Mick Jagger at Reception. I bet he's been to quite a few good digs but surely none better than the Pousada do Ouro. Firstly it's in the most gorgeous picture-perfect World Heritage old town just a few hours south of Rio. Totally unspoiled... More

We stayed 2 nights at this pousada. The location is great, close to the port and to the city center. We enjoyed the bar where we had our best capirinhas with nice music in the background. The pousada is decorated with style and the place is peaceful. As one guest already wrote don't expect the standard of a hotel, even... More

This pousada is very well located, within the historic centre, and it even has parking, which is a rarity in Paraty. It is very stylish, nice and charming. Attendance was very friendly and helpful. My family and me loved it.

Not knowing what to expect from the historic town of Paraty, we were greeted by friendly and helpful staff in what I must say is one of the most clean and efficient places I have ever stayed. The Pousada oozes character with top notch service. We liked it so much we asked to extend our stay in this beautiful town.... More

The hotel is beautiful and clean with a very efficient staff in a perfect location. We recommend this hotel for everyone who looks for a good place to stay in Paraty. There are many restaurants nearby and the main square is just some steps away.
