We had a lovely time staying with David and Jimena. Sometimes I worry about staying at places where it's clear you'll have lots of contact with the proprietor (like perhaps it'll be awkward) and there was absolutely no need to worry about that here - and we were the only guests in the pousada during our stay! They provided us... More

David and Jimena are wonderful hosts, a wealth of info, and a pleasure to be around! Our room was super clean/tidy and the pousada is decorated with many personal touches. Our favorite was breakfast, it was so beautifully presented and delicious! We didn't get to stay long, but we truly enjoyed it. They were awesome to talk to as well!... More

Stayed at Pousada Guarana for two nights - and I don't think we could've asked for more. David and Jimena were the most gracious hosts and took care of us, making us feel more than at home. We stayed here with friends and felt like we were in the middle of serenity. The pousada is decorated very tastefully and really... More

We, me and my wife, spent only one night there, and it was fantastic. The place is beatifull all around, full of details where you can see the artist hand of the owners. The service is more than a smile. David and Jimena wants you to have a good time there, recommending you everything, places to go, places to eat,... More

We enjoyed every aspect of our stay! The room was spacious, charming, and spotless. David and Jimena were welcoming and very helpful. They were available for recommendations, directions, and even booked a day at the spa for us on a rainy day! We looked forward to our chats with them over breakfast. The breakfast was delicious and had plenty of... More

As many before us have noted, this pousada is a truly special place. David and Jimena go out of their way to make your stay personal, comfortable, and special. We arrived in the rain during a world cup match, so stayed at the Pousada and watched the rest of the match with them! They supplied us with maps and personalized... More

This is overdue (from Sept 2012). While staying at this lovely location, we suffered a severe complication--our car wouldn't start the morning our flight was to return to the US (from Rio!) One of the owners of P.G. spent over an hour helping us troubleshoot and eventually jump the battery. We would have given them 5 stars WITHOUT this, but... More

I definitely understand why this pousada is #1 on TripAdvisor. It was very clean and beautiful, and the owners, David and Jimena, were fantastic! I think this was the best service I've ever had at any hotel or pousada in the US or in Brazil. And they speak English, so that made things a lot easier. My husband and I... More

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. We stayed... More

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
