The Pousada is nice, cozy, the room is clean and tidy, bathroom with huge shower and products. Very good breakfast, swimming pool is small but clean, but still the price is too high for this level of hosting... High season, ok, but not a 4 stars hotel. For a lower price my review would have been a 4 to 5

We stayed here for 3 nights on our recent trip to Paraty. The inn was recommended by our hotel concierge in Rio. The Inn was great. It was clean and everyone was friendly. They also had a nice free breakfast. The only downside was that it was a bit if a walk to the historic downtown (20-25 mins) and the... More

We stayed here for two nights. The hotel is lovely. The room was nice. Very clean and quiet. The staff were helpful but did not speak much English. The pool is small and in the middle of the hotel which is a little weird and I didn't use it. It's a 25 min walk/ 3 min drive to paraty. Very... More

Really nice place, with a beautifull garden outside. It's kind of 3 minutes by car from the city centre of Paraty. If you don't have a car probably it's too far, you might have better options closer. Staff were really warm and taking care of all the details, breakfast was great and they have tee @ 4pm. really recommend.

Clean, new, excellent breakfast, variety of fruits, in the afternoon they offer tea with cakes, which is nice. The rooms are small, but comfortable, but the rooms located on the ground floor specifically under the stairs, it is impossible to sleep avoid them!

My husband and I just spent four nights in this wonderful family run Pousada. We loved it! Marta and her husband are incredibly welcoming. They couldn't do enough for us. I was surprised on arrival to find Afternoon Tea in full swing. I wasn't expecting this. Marta is an amazing baker. She tempted us daily with cakes and treats. She... More

Brand new pousada offers beautiful lodging opportunity in Paraty. Rooms were clean and built with luxury in mind. Pool added a nice opportunity to cool off after a long day in the sun. Pousada has outdoor breakfast and lounge areas. Located about 1 mile outside of town, we walked in (sidewalks along 3/4 of the way) or took a taxi.... More
