Let's get straight to the point....... A terrible hotel and experience. Blood on the shower curtains which was eventually cleaned off 3 days later after complaining, screws sticking out from the back of the bedroom cabinet draws (danger for people with kids😁), maids walking into the room without knocking, two single beds pushed together and they call that a double???????,...

I stayed in the hotel following an hectic business trip - it was a little piece of paradise. The moment you arrive you feel relaxed. The reception is small and personal, no computer check in or fancy electric cards its just a person handing you a key. I had a room on the front with views over the pool over... More

We stayed one night at this beautifully situated hotel in a lovely bay near Paraty. It was a nice and quiet place after busy Rio. U should go eat in the town and lay back and relax. Very clear skies showed a lovely starry night. Great stay if u like peace and quiet! The town is a drive away but... More

Santa Clara is situated in an amazing place. The view is awesome. And the hotel could be really nice...if it wasn´t almost abandoned. I didn´t count the employees, but i´m almost sure that they weren´t more than 7 or 8 for the all hotel. The guys at the reception are rude and without any type of experience. Our children are...

I dont know why this place has to do to get better reviews. I found the room to be well equipped , immaculately clean and the staff were very friendly. The place offers some fantastic views and #i would be happy to recommend it for a relaxing break.

By far the best thing about the Santa Clara is the place, if you are looking for a peaceful setting. Very nice garden, in front of the sea (no beach though). Buses travel to and from Paraty (no bus stop, you just wave your hand) but it can be a bit difficult at night, so think that you'll end up... More

Welcome to Hotel Santa Clara; the hotel where dead birds lie decomposing on your balcony, fungus grows on the ceiling above your bed, rain pours down inside the hallways, and the food quality is so far below par that if we were talking about golf, you would consider this hotel the new Tiger Woods.
