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

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
