We enjoyed our two night stay in Paraty at the Pousada Marquesa - we found the staff at the hotel very helpful. Possibly, it was a little overpriced for South America. During our stay, a festival was taking place in the local parish church which allowed us to get a feel for the local community.

We had three nights at this hotel. We had specifically asked for, and had been assured TWICE by Bruno (the only English speaker on staff, apparently) by email when we booked and confirmed that we would get a quiet room away from the square. When we arrived we were given a room at the front of the hotel, on the... More

I stayed for three nights in Pousada da Marquesa with two friend of mine who were visiting Brazil from abroad. We arrived on a Monday and stayed over on a Tuesday, which was a holidady in Brazil and left on a Wednesday. During the holidays the hotel offered one type of service and breakfast, but the working day it changed... More

We stayed at the Pousada for just one night, breaking the road journey from Rio to Santos. What an amazing place Paraty really is, and the Marquesa did not disappoint either. The public areas are full of old bits and pieces, clocks, nautical items, cash tills, sewing machines....all sorts. The garden area has a pool with terrace for drinks and... More

This is a wonderful establishment which is well located, fabulous garden and swimming pool area, excellent service and most importantly it has kept the style and charm of the period it represents which dates back to the 18th Century - in other words an authentic experience for those who are seeking this kind of window into the past. The only... More

My wife and I stayed 2 nights at Pousada da Marquesa. The staff was friendly, but only Bruno spoke English -- and he was very helpful. The facility has a great deal of character with lots of antiques and quaint rooms. Our room (number 7) was adequate, but not extraordinary. We enjoyed renting a private boat (the Latitude at barcolatitude@hotmail.com)... More

This hotel is full of antiques. The bedroom was spacious and comfortable, and the areas around the hotel for relaxing were lovely - like a country home. The staff, thought they spoke very little English, were friendly and helpful. The outside bar was charming and the barman made great caipirinhas. Close to the town and altogether a beautiful place to... More

I loved that place with its decorative items on the common grounds, beautiful paintings and garden. The dining room was beautiful, too and the breakfast buffet very enjoyable. Rooms, however, are furnished a bit too scarcely as there is not much space for hanging or putting things - not even a chair nor table. But no regrets as the whole... More

Can't believe it is the same pousada.... This is another Brazilian gem. Decorated with fascinating antique memorabilia it has a unique and elegant atmosphere. Our bedroom was a good size and always delightfully cool. Breakfast was first class. The pousada has a lovely courtyard that contains a pool, a bar and plenty of sun loungers. The location is perfect. It... More
