What a beautiful Pousada! We stayed here three nights and love to come back. David and Jimena rent out five rooms in the pousada. The rooms are spacious and clean with colourful details. The other rooms in the pousada are used as a yoga room and massage room (they provide these services). There's a beautiful tropical garden with swimmingpool, which... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Pousada Guarana! David and Jimena are incredible hosts with great local recommendations for days out and places to eat. Despite a heavy and prolonged downpour of rain, we felt very at ease in the beautiful covered gardens in the Pousada. The breakfast was a particular highlight with interesting local recipes and also home comforts,... More

What a lovely relaxing spot the owners have created here. Picture a nice little pool surrounded by chic wooden furniture and hammocks, cool tunes playing on the stereo and top food being served by your friendly hosts. The rooms are large and lovely too. The friendly owners, David and Jimena, helped us plan our further travels and even emailed us... More

The attribute that really makes this place unique is the customer service that David and Jimena provide. When you arrive, you are greeted by cats and dogs and either David or Jimena. They will show you to your room (adequate, clean space, quiet) and talk to you about what to do in Paraty. They were very helpful about making recommendations... More

First of all, crazy good breakfast! Really starts your day off right. I recommend this pousada for anyone, but especially any English speakers. As the owners are a really fun and friendly couple, she is Brazilian and he is American. They're great at giving advise on where to go and what to do depending on what you like. BTW, go... More

Great pousada, perfect for a relaxing trip to Paraty. I've stayed here twice and can't recommend it any higher. David and Jimena are friendly and welcoming hosts and the bikes are great for riding into town. Highly recommended.
