We stayed at the Pousada for two nights. The garden is fantastic. The rooms are comfortable and the staff are incredibly friendly and accommodating. All very well maintained. The only draw back is the quality of the shower that could be better. I would stay here again.

Out of the main area of paraty, but not too far. More than makes up for the location by offering great value, amazing breakfast, and friendly staff. Has a great little pool to relax by. Very trustworthy, as I had left an expensive piece of electronics in the room after checking out. I called back a week later not expecting... More

Calm and well kept around 25 minutes walk from the town, or R20 with a cab. Garden and pool area super nice, magical feel at night. Attention to detail. Covers on sun chairs changed every day, etc. Pool not heated so swims in October was pretty quick :) There was a hot tub that we wanted to use on rainy... More

This pousada is simple, but clean and well-kept. It is situated 25 mins walk out of town centre, in quiet neighborhood. We found the walk a bit far with small children, but the drive is quick and easy. (I would not recommend the walk at night.) Park at the large gravel lot by the main bridge into town - R$10... More

This lovely and cosy pousada is in a great location to stay in Paraty. It is close enough to walk to the touristic area (around 25 mins) along a scenic walk along the river. However, as it is not in the busy centre you are able to enjoy the scenery and calming noises of the birds. The rooms are simple... More

The Bambu Bamboo pousada is the perfect place to stay in Paraty: At the same time, it's close enough to the touristic area (20min walking along the river max) and far enough to have the calm and just the birds and monkeys noises. The rooms are very simple and well done. Super clean The spa is very simple but the... More

very nice pousada with beautiful gardens and a lovely swimming pool. rooms were clean and tidy and the breakfast in the garden dining area was very good. the only drawback is that there is approx 25-30min walk into the old town. this is no big deal during the day as it is a nice walk. However a short 5min section... More

Having traveled a bunch for business and personal outside the U.S., i can say the quality of the property as well as the staff is great. Lucy the manager does a tremendous job. The pool is nice, the on-site breakfast is excellent and... More

This is a lovely and quiet Pousada, located about a 25 minute walk from the historic center of Paraty. If you're looking for someplace restful, with a very pretty pool and pleasant riverside setting, this is a very good choice. The staff is friendly, and the new manager Lucy was lovely and very helpful. However, the room itself was a... More

We have just returned from a 3 week trip to Brazil and Argentina. During that time we spent 3 nights at Bambu Bamboo, and I can really say that in our opinion this was the our favourite accommodation. The rooms of the pousada are built around a beautifully maintained garden and swimming pool. The pool is very clean and well... More
