This is a nice pousada and, not being a hotel we expected a smaller, more personalized experience, and this is what we got. Distinctive A-frame rooms with a double upstairs and two singles downstairs. Two bathrooms were nice, as were the minibar and the great air conditioning. The welcome was nice and Ivan, the manager, was affability itself. Yes, you... More

We stayed here two nights. It is away from the historic center of Paraty (25 minutes walk) which is a problem if you do not have a bicycle or a car. Facilities are OK and the price is fair . The swimming pool is nice. The breakfast room is dark and depressing, the rooms do not have windows (except in... More

Definitely off of the beaten path, a bit confusing to find, but was worth the effort. Parking is really scarce, but luckily not a problem for us as we were here during a slower season. Initial greeting was very friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean and all front on the pool which is kept clean daily. The pool area is... More

Stayed 5 nights in a loft room in Feb 2015. When arriving at the bus station around 7pm and finding no taxi's we walked. It's far with heavy backpacks. On arrival a lady (no English spoken) grabbed a key and showed us to our room. It was big with good aircon, a small empty fridge, 2 bathrooms, a sofa with... More

This is a nice little place just on the outside of the main city center. The people/family running it are very friendly and accommodated us. The pool is extremely refreshing after a long day in the heat. The property is clean. You can walk to the main part of the town which took us about 10 minutes and about 30... More

Nice enough hotel with breakfast in a garden overlooking the calm calm river.. Simple hotel with simple rooms. Mosquitoes everywhere in paraty though, so beware... Major quibble is the distance - a good 20-30 minutes walk to the town. In mid-day sun, it can scorch, so lunch was a reluctant affair.. But staff are great and helpful, even if English... More

We came Thursday afternoon - there was no check in, we just got the key to our room of someone, and then she left. No... More

Our room was clean, comfortable, and we loved the pool chairs, pool, sauna, and steam room! The staff were very accommodating, and the breakfast delicious each morning. We especially loved chatting with Ben, the owner, who helped us with everything we needed. Although it is a little walk into town, we thought it went quickly and took you right by... More

We only stayed at Bambu Bamboo two nights, but boy what a stay! The rooms are nice and tidy. The service is really "personal" and great too. I have nothing bad to say about the pousada. It's well kept, quiet... Just lovely The breakfast is good, served in the half-outdoors by the river, in the garden. And there's a relax... More
