We stayed here four nights after a week in Ilha Grande and absolutely adored our room and the pousada overall. Perfect location next to post card Sta Rita Church, sort of ecclectic, artsy decor combines with old style furnishings, outstanding balcony and hammock in our room, excellent breakfast, tiny but lovely pool, and great staff (although they had not made...

Brilliantly located in the Historic Centre. Just be sure to get dropped off as close as possible to the hotel as cars aren't allowed to drive there. Breakfast was wonderful, with lots of good options. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Great concierge service if you'd like arrange just about anything, including tours. The hotel itself is one of... More

This is a lovely, charming pousada in the old town of Paraty. The staff are friendly and helpful and it's clear they take great pride in their establishment. The residence is owned by an artist whose beautiful and creative work adorns the walls. (I wish I could of bought a piece but alas I had no space in my luggage!)... More

We stayed here for one night. It was a pleasant surprise when we arrived to this poussada run by an Argentinian artist. The rooms are beautifully decorated and clean. We stayed in the Japanese style room with a low bed and a small view of the island. It is a little pricey but worth it. There's a bar and a... More

A lovely place to stay. Very quiet and private. Very nice rooms and efficient and professional staff. Pool area is very small but we were the only ones ever there, so it was spot on. Breakfast was nice, the cinnamon pancakes are a must, had them every morning!

Pousada Arte Urquijo is a charming inn nestled into the fishing village of Paraty Brazil. The quaint inn includes unique art in the lobby and a terrific, full breakfast which we ate every day by a lovely pool on the interior courtyard. Our room had a balcony facing the harbor and had a comfortable bed, linens, plus bathrobes. The staff... More

We were privileged to spend 2 nights here.
