This is a most beautifully designed and furnished property. It could be straight out of the pages of an interior design magazine. The grounds are beautiful and the swimming pool is sublime, like taking a warm bath ! We had a suite on the first floor over looking the pool, with a large sleeping area and a smaller living area....

After a week on the road for work arriving at the Pousada was bliss. I was lucky enough to be allocated one of the very large ground floor rooms which was extremely comfortable with a large bathroom. The location is perfect for wandering around the old town but has the bonus of on-site parking. After spending time in some interesting... More

This is THE dream Hotel any city should have: small, personalized and FRIENDLY service. Would go back to Paraty just to stay here again! - Location: could not be better, in the center of Paraty's historic town, with walking streets and everything a couple of blocks away - Accommodations: Great, luxurious finishings across the entire Pousada, filled with nice details,...

We loved our stay at Pousada Literary. Amazing swimming pool, great breakfast. I just found the room a bit dark, and the air conditioning was a bit too noisy. The staff was very friendly and at all times available.

Paraty is beautiful and charming, but Pousada Literaria is beyond this. The rooms are nice ( ask for the big one, not with the bath tub) and the hotel have a wonderful breakfast. The restaurant are also very good and with different choices. All of them very good. The pool is quite nice and with shadow, ideal for rest and... More

The Literaria is certainly a very special Pousada. Situated in lush tropical gardens in this fascinating town, it was a great place to unwind after our tour around South America. the swimming pool is lovely, surrounded by palm trees, with plenty of loungers and towels. The bar and lounge are open and airy - a wonderful place to watch the... More

I've spent a weekend and my stay couldn't be better. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and well decorated in a contemporary style. The restaurant is pretty good and the food is delicious. The breakfast has a good variety of itens and you have to order the "pão de queijo" waffles. My room was on the second floor, facing the pool.... More

I've spent last carnival at Pousada Literaria de Paraty and couldn't be happier. It's location is unbeatable, right next to all attractions surrounding the historical venue, including the best bars and restaurants. I've got an upper room facing the swimming pool and had the best time, it's was spacious (really spacious) and very well decorated. I'm an addicted reader and... More

My stay was outstanding. The hotel atmosphere is very accommodating with a spacious open bar and pool area. The resturant is very good with a well proportioned menu. The rooms are very nicely decorated and spacious. The historical aspects of the community blend in well with the hotel and access to the area is very convenient. Well done.

A fabulous place, very tastefully done, great rooms, contemporary decor, fantastic service/ attention to detail and a great pool. Stayed 2 night but wish I a few extra days to enjoy the town, and it's surroundings. Hope to return some day. Breakfast is great and generous yet you have to order the Pap de quizo waffles.
