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 are confused - very confused. Me and my family went to Paraty and Pousada Bambu Bamboo - and was very excited - new part of Brazil, new hotel, new exploring for the family. BUT.. 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

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
