If well travelled and looking for a new experience with comfort this location is perfect. The rooms are a little small due to the architecture of a converted Hacienda style private residence. The two suites are beautiful light large with amazing views. The pool area very nice after returning from some beautiful hikes along the coast to remote beaches and... More

This really an amazing place. Highly recommended but there are some problems and it is expensive, so here are the advantages and disadvantaes so you could make up your own mind: Advantages: 1. Amazing view either from your room (rooms 1-4) or AMAZING swimming-pool deck. 2. Beautiful location on an atmosphering fisherman's village on the costa verde. 3. Helpful staf,... More

Pousada Picinguaba is a beautiful colonial style building with 20-somethig rooms with a gorgeous view. The great's charm, in my opinion, is that picinguaba is a small fishermen village, inside a protected park, with a very easygoing way of life. Perfect to plug off the world! Pros: Staff (all locals) Pool view Activity offered by the pousada Dinner - local... More

Dear Marcelo, Thanks for your review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay at Picinguaba and that you have been able to appreciate the taste of a slow life. I would like to underline that we always inform our guest that no tv, mini bar nor wi-fi are available at the Pousada. This is a fundamental part of our philosophy... More

This place is not the place for a honeymoon. Although the hotel offers beautiful scenery and lovely food and friendly staff, the experience was far from the peaceful.. or even relaxing holiday that I expected from reading the website. The rooms are two rows of terraced huts, with extremely thin walls, every morning I was woken up at 8am from... More

This beautiful pousada is in a secluded location, perfect for a romantic or relaxing holiday. We travelled from Rio, which was a 4 hour drive by taxi and cost R$800 one way; the Costa Verde bus company provides a service at a fraction of the price, terminating in Paraty, which is 30 mins by taxi to Picinguaba. The staff, most... More

Pousaba Picinguaba is a deep breath for the soul. Set in an old colonial style building surrounded by gorgeous, lush gardens with a sparkling pool.The views across the pool and deck toward the bay are unparalleled. The community spirit is apparent from the get-go. All food is locally produced and sourced. Dinner is served at 8:30 with all guests enjoying... More

This place has some great benefits. View is beautiful, staff very friendly. Reality though is well below advertised standards. No wifi during 4 out of our six day trip, no electricity for 5 hours one night, mosquito nets mandatory over your (small) bed, small rooms. The smelly walk up from the village is a struggle for anybody with walking difficulties.... More

Dear Guest, Thanks for your comment. The view from our swimming pool is indeed beautiful, and it´s something that our guests carry with them when they go back to their countries. The activities we offer are great and carefully choose in order to give guests the opportunity to discover this stunning region. Our staff, all locals, is very friendly and... More

This place is beautiful. It's very quiet and peaceful. The rooms are simple but beautiful and DO have air-con. It's about 30 mins drive from Paraty. We stayed for five nights in early December. The grounds are beautiful and the pool is very inviting. The poolside bar serves the usual cocktails as well as food. The service here is five... More

Been here three times now. It's not cheap and rooms aren't massive, but the place is just wonderful. Good staff and a very special location. By far the best was when they were full, but as they knew us by now, gave us the Casa Verde, normally the owner's residence. Fantastic. Another time we had what I think was called... More
