This wonderful hotel has a Relais Chateau feel to it. Situated in the historic town of Paraty, this hotel is a gem. Service is excellent, as is breakfast, their gorgeous granite pool etc etc... You can feel that the attention to detail is impeccable: toilet paper always set in the right direction with the folded tip, perfectly manicured garden, marvelous... More

In the heart of historic Paraty this pousaba is a little retreat. It boasts one of the best locations and restaurants in Paraty. Poolside relaxation is what it's all about. Breakfast can be served anywhere at any time but poolside seems perfect. Our meal in the restaurant was sublime. Service a little on the slow side - but we were... More

If you go to Paraty you need to stay in the historic center, where all action is. Pousada Literaria is not only very well located, but it offers many amenities that I´m sure most pousadas in the in Paraty can´t. Would definitely go back. Pros: Right at historic center Parking space Great pool area (heated pool) Breakfast at anytime and... More

Hidden behind the automobile entrance doors is this wonderful hotel. It's only two stories, like almost everything in Parity, with a wonderful swimming pool area, a bar/informal outdoor restaurant near the pool, and an excellent formal restaurant. The staff was awesome and the rooms were perfect and very spacious. The hotel has an enclosed parking area which was perfect for... More

Superb place to stay in Paraty. In the old town, but accessible by car and easy to park, and safe, inside the hotel walls. Excellent food, service, beds and staff. It`s not cheap, but then you wouldn`t expect it to be when it`s this good.

My husband and I spent 4 nights at Pousada Literaria and I can't say enough good things about the place. It's been designed with such care and attention to detail. It's absolutely beautiful and so serene. The staff was extremely helpful and the spa was very nice. The restaurant at the hotel was probably the best meal we had in... More

A very good staying at this luxury b&b in Paraty. Excellent service, breakfast and we especially enjoyed the warm pool in front of our room entrance. Attention: Google maps do not indicate right location! We arrived late in the night and had to drag heavy baggage on Paraty pavement for half an hour, discovering lately a very good internal private... More
