Truly amazing hotel and very reasonable. The pictures speak for themselves but many small touches. This place does not cut any corners. The building and premises were spacious and beautiful. Amazing attached Italian restaurant, Pippo, and good proximity in Paraty. Service was first rate...they even showed a Charlie Chaplain movie during breakfast. I believe the owner has involvement in movie... More

This pousada is very well located in the historical district of paraty and is a gorgeous place. But the floors creek and you can hear people walking and talking when the morning begins. So if you're thinking you'll sleep in late or turn in early at night.. Think again.. The decor is gorgeous, the breakfast buffet is a decent spread... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights during a recent visit to Paraty. The hotel is done out on a film star theme, with posters of classic cinema and film actors on the walls ( we had an Italian Bicycle Thieves poster in our room). Furniture is quirky - reclaimed old furniture which adds to the charm of the place.... More

Right in the historical centre of town, this hotel is beautifully positioned for experiencing the old town. A quaint old colonial building it has been tastefully renovated but retaining many of the old features. Room was spacious, bed comfortable, and facilities good. While the hotel staff lacked English speaking skills they were keen to help when needed. Breakfast and dinner... More

Such a beautiful hotel, set in a old house and beautifully decorated. Lovely gardens and lots of interesting areas. Impeccable service ( they even carried our terribly heavy suitcases from the car park to the hotel, 3 blocks). Incredibly comfortable rooms with a great bed. Stay there. Spoil yourself, stay there.

We stayed at this pousada for two nights in early April. The room was nice - the bed was very big and comfortable, and the bathroom was huge. The air conditioning unit kept the place cool. The breakfast was good - a nice selection and friendly staff to make an omelet if you like. There's a bar and a nice... More

We came across the hotel when we came to Paraty for a day visit. Loved the creative decor, filled with color and interesting items like a full-sized vintage movie projector. We booked online and came back for two nights. They sent a great letter in English and told us where to park (as the historic city is off-limits to cars).... More

Pousada do Sandi is historically one of the best Pousadas in Paraty, and I've stayed there a couple of times, however this time, I thought it had let itself go a little, no swimming pool a slight dissapointment, but still very pleasant, great breakfast bouffet and mainly great service from the reception and service staff

Location is perfect! Large rooms and very clean. Staff was very helpful! Loved the decor. Breakfast was great with choice of egg styles made to order. I think the spa was under construction! Loved it!
