Hard to fault the rooms or hotel - everything is clean, great pool and bar area and located just a short walk from the town centre. But the wifi access is non-existent in the rooms and still desperately slow in the bar area. This is a major issue if you have business to conduct online, which proved a real headache.

After a month in hostels this was a welcome oasis. Stunning setting, comfy beds, good breaky and a luxurious pool! Staff were helpful although a huge language barrier if you don't speak Portuguese. Wifi sucked, although the hotel presents itself as a retreat and thus being in contactable is almost part of the appeal. Rooms are awesome! We'll worth spending... More

Stayed for a couple of nights. The location is very good, a stroll away from the historic centre and the boat pier. Rooms are basic. The toilet is open and might be awkward if u r staying with friends. Staff though not proficient in English do comprehend and try to help. Breakfast is basic but has that home-cooked feel. Small...

We had booked this Pousada, but when we wanted to check in the owner told us that it was double booked due to a mistake of booking.com. He had called an other Pousada for us that was supposed to be as good. It was def. not as good. It was further away from the center, little dodgy, dark area, smaller... More

Well located in the city centre and short walk to old town. Nice pool and friendly staff, but shame they didn't speak much English though. Rooms are basic, comfortable and air conditioned. Wifi in the city is rubbish so so é time we would get good signals in the lounge. Recommended and would stay again.

A 2 minute walk and you are in the heart of the historical town, so on that basis alone it gets good marks. The hotel was clean and basic like many pousada's. Breakfast had a decent selection and choice. Small pool but set in pleasant surroundings. No parking offered by them, so I would imagine at peak times it could... More

The hotel has everything to be perfect but.... The location is great only a short walk from the historical center, the rooms are not big but enough for a weekend Although it is located on the main road the rooms do not suffer from the noise and the patio area (breakfast / pool area) is great with plenty of vegetation...

This is a perfect place 2 stay in Paraty. Wonderful food in the restaurant. Clean rooms, lovely swimming pool and lovely people. I feel very privileged that I could stay here. If possible I will return to this pousada

The pousada (which is actually a hotel) is a bit old with rooms smelling humidity. The shower and towels alone would merit changing to another pousada. The price was fair (BRL 230) but for BRL100 you can get a better pousada in the historic center.
