After a trip to the Amazon rain forest and to Rio for the carnival it was great to wind down in such beautiful surroundings. The old colonial buildings took you to another era but everything was very modern and supplied what was needed. The pool area was relaxing watching the humming birds and the sauna really spoiled you.

Great place to stay which is short walk from the main town in Paraty. The thing that makes this place though is David and Jimena who were brilliant. They even got us a cake and sang Happy Birthday over breakfast on my wife's birthday! Rooms are simple but more than what you need and there is a pool but why... More

Great stay, extremely helpful staff who made good recommendations for local activities and helped to arrange transportation. It is secluded a bit away from the old town centre, which is easily accessible, particularly by bicycle which is a great way to get around the town and is provided by the posada.

The pousada was a wonderful little slice of home away from home. We stayed in low season, so there were few people around but the fantastic owners David and Jimena couldnt have been more wonderful. There was nothing that was too much trouble, from recommendations to driving us to the bus stop upon our departure and providing beautiful breakfasts even... More

Really a lovely hotel. Tastefully decorated, amazing breakfast and first class service. We were directed to the best of Paraty, from the boat tour we took to the restuarants and bars. So special this place is and Paraty is a must. We will be back as soon as we can. Thank you to David and Gemina for making it so... More

A true home away from home! David and Jimena were the best hosts, and were very helpful in providing us with restaurant recommendations, transfers, etc. Breakfast was wonderful, served poolside. House is decorated with great taste. Our room was rather basic but comfortable (good bed!) and clean. We had a superior room with a private garden, but never sat in... More

We spent 5 nights at the Pousada Guarana on our recent holiday in Brazil. This was definitely the best place we stayed, and the best value for money. The Pousada itself is beautifully designed with a lovely pool, gardens and communal areas. The owners re-home Paraty's stray cats and dogs so there are always lots of animals wandering around, which... More

We were just sad to pass threw this place (just 2 nights) without having the right time to enjoy enough this place! We weren't sure if it was good at first to be ``out of the central historic spot`` but it did finally-so calm, peaceful, tastefully decorated. It felt like at was at the spa all the time (with the...

We had a fantastic stay at this pousada - the hosts were genuinely focused on ensuring every detail of our stay was perfect and took such effort to make sure everything from the interiors to the breakfasts (amazing!) to making sure we had details on where to eat in town / how to take the tour boat around the islands...
