Really enjoyed this place. The rooms were spacious and relaxing, very calm and well laid out place: the rooms and the overall place. Great pool, courtyard, location and atmosphere. When we were here the weather was overcast and dull but still pleasant hanging out around the place.

Paraty has many fancy and expensive places to stay but the Valhacouto is one which is cheaper and located just a few minutes walk from the old town. Breakfast was a bit disappointing although pleasantly located around the pool with various small monkeys begging for food from the guests. The staff were friendly and there free access to the internet... More

We had not booked in advance and came to Paraty just a few days before the literature festival. Most hostels are booked out a year in advance, but this one offered us two single rooms for the two nights before the start of the festival. The staff was very forthcoming and even helped by asking around for us to see... More

We enjoyed our stay at the pousada valhacouto, it is in a good location about 5-10 minutes from the centre of the old town, but peaceful with a small pool. The staff are pleasant and the breakfast has a good variety of fruit, bread, cakes etc and fresh orange juice. The room was fairly spacious and the bathroom fine though... More

We moved here because we didn't like the original pousada we had booked (dos Contos) which had a much better overall rating and very positive reviews (why, I do not know!). What an improvement! Vast room with a double bed on a mezzanine level and two singles downstairs, nice pool and outside area, close to the historic centre, fantastic breakfast... More

Great breakfast, lovely pool area and bar. Staff excellent. We had a disappointment elsewhere so had to move got three rooms... More

Beautiful spot about a block outside the colonial downtown of Paraty (short walking distance to restaurants, shops, bus station, port for boat excursions, etc.), with a lovely pool, and friendly staff. Breakfast was substantial and tasty, with especially delicious coffee - although we were occasionally interrupted by cute, but aggressive spider monkeys. Rooms were spacious and comfortable, with mini-fridge, although... More
