Very charming hotel. Not very impressive on the outside, but really cozy on the inside. Open court hallways with rooms and a center court with a swimming pool. This court also has a view on the open lobby with dining facility. Perfect walking distance to the center and the harbor. The hotel manager was very helpful in arranging a trip... More

This was a reasonable hotel in a good location a few minutes walk from the old town and round the corner from the bus station. Rooms were clean and nicely decorated although in the 5 nights we spent here our toiletries were not replenished. The pool area was a bonus and the breakfast reasonable. The wifi did not work well.... More

This is a lovely, simple hotel. The staff are very helpful, the rooms spacious, beds comfy and shower powerful enough, and the pool is of a good size. The breakfast was varied and of good quality. There is a well stocked and very reasonably priced bar, serving very good caipirinha all day and night to residents. The hotel is within... More

The place is beautiful... a big guest house and bed is great, the room is comfortable. They need to clean up the pool because the water was not that clean. We really love the breakfast, full of fruits, beads, juice, etc. Amazing. The staffs need to learn how to interact with the guests and smile more. We missed that. The... More

Lovely pousada on the main road into Paraty, just around the corner from the bus station and just a few minute's walk from the old town. Comfortable beds, the room had a large double bed which they separated into two singles for us on arrival as I was travelling with my daughter. We had a room on the first floor... More

It is located 2 blocks from the bus station, on the main street, where you can find anything you need. Also, you can reach the historic center in five minutes. There is a pool inside, quiet bedrooms with nice beds and a lovely breakfast. The place is really beautiful. The only problem is the shower: it does not had a... More

It's very good hotel with very good price. This hotel is in the center of the street and if you want to book this hotel go through paraty tours, you can find the difference in price between the cheapest online and the one paraty offers. They have very nice swimming pool, if you float on your back, you can see... More

I spent 2 nights at this very elegant pousada in room 204 on the first floor. The place is clean modern and tastefully furnished. The location could not be better. The bus station is around the corner. Shops, banks, restaurants on the doorstep. The beautiful old colonial town is within a 5 minute walk. The old fort has great views.... More

We were really impressed with this place. Excellent value for money in a good location with easy walking access to the centre of the town and also to the bus station. The hotel is very modern and charming, with good-sized, well-appointed rooms. There is a very nice pool area which unfortunately we didn't use due to rain. The reception staff... More
