This was our luxury and relaxation after over 4 weeks of travelling around South America, using a variety of accommodations. Arrival: we arrived late after a very full day of travelling. We were shown directly to our room by a very pleasant man on the night duty. We were not made to complete registration forms, this was done the next... More

We stayed here for 3 nights during the World Cup and really enjoyed our stay. The service was pretty good but with some inconsistencies. Good and bad points below from our stay: The Pousada - Beautiful buildings and grounds / nice pool with bar and could order food that would come from the Italian restaurant across the road / wet...

We stayed two nights and loved it. It is very well located right on the heart of the old town. The rooms are very clean and romantic. Lots of character. The breakfast was our best so far comparing to the other hotels we have stayed in Brazil. We had a couple massage at the spa, it was worth every penny.... More

We made a great choice to stay at Pousada do Ouro during our time in Paraty. We arrived by private transfer and were let in by the coastal road Rua Fresca (which cars can use). Thankfully we did not have to drag our luggages throughout the whole historic centre! Immediately we sensed that the pousada is well-maintained and the staff... More

We went for a Carnival in Paraty, which is an incredible occasion, this extremely good 'pousada' has all the advantages! The price for a 5 days carnival stay was the best we could find. The Hotel is in the heart of events, but yet, on a sort of back street were you can retreat from the madness of carnival! It... More

The rooms are very airy & well appointed we stayed in the annex which is like a little street in a hotel. Breakfast... More

Based on the excellent reviews on trip advisor I called the pousada to make a reservation. The lady (Naira if I am not mistaken) who answered my phone call was shockingly unpleasant showing clear signs of impatience as I asked her twice to repeat the pousada's email address needed to make the reservation. I asked to speak to a manager... More

This posada is set in an old colonial building and is absolutely beautifully and tastefully maintained. The whole place has an aura of peace and calm. The pool and bar area are welcoming and have beautiful tropical plants around the edge. The breakfasts were delicious with very helpful staff. Our room was in the annexe opposite which was equally well... More

The great location means you are in easy walking distance of everywhere in town you're likely to visit. The pousada is really gorgeous - everything has been so tastefully designed and decorated and well maintained. The pool and bar areas are welcoming and there is a wonderful "natural" feel throughout, with tropical plants in abundance. The staff deserve a special... More

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...
