“Almost perfect”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

Agree with all the other superlative reviews - beautiful and calm view of the sea and the town, clean rooms, abundance of hammocks, satisfying breakfast, delicious orange juice and cakes. Would definitely stay here again. This pousada would earn the highest rating IF it could improve its TV reception and increase the reliability and speed of its Wi-Fi. As this is World Cup season, it was frustrating for my husband to watch football from a TV screen that was frequently masked in the center by a notice asking you to call the Sky TV hotline. Even the reception lady could not get this sign to go away, and gave up. The pousada would do well also to invest a little more in upgrading its internet connection for its guests. There was internet, but it took forever for anything to load. That took precious time from us to discover more of lovely Paraty.

Room Tip: The superior rooms on the upper floor has view and balcony.

We loved this place! Our room was very comfortable, and we thoroughly enjoyed the balcony with its table and chairs and hammock. The breakfast is varied and very good. Have the orange juice--it was so delicious!! The owner was lovely, as were the staff. One of the staff members who didn't speak much English worked so very hard to help us order some delivery one evening. We'd spent the day out on the bay and just wanted to have a relaxing dinner on the balcony. We managed to order a pizza, and she found us an inexpensive bottle of wine in the kitchen. The view from our room was wonderful, so every time I had to walk up the hill, I just thought about that as the reward.

If you haven't decided on going to Parati, I would highly recommend it. It's a lovely town, and this pousada was just perfect!

I love it! Nice view, quiet area, walking distance to the center of town(5-7 min), spacious rooms, good breakfast. Friendly staff. Check with the company "easy transfer" for transfers to and from Rio de Janeiro and other places. I think it will help save money, instead taking bus+ taxi to pousadas, and they will leave you right in front of your pousada or next hotel.
I would stay here again.

This place is a gem. Small, quiet and calm and with the most beautiful of settings on the hillside with sweeping views of the old town of Paraty (just two minutes walk away), the bay and mountains beyond and all wrapped around by gardens full of colourful trees and flowers. The owner (fluent English and Portuguese) is wonderfully welcoming and helpful and her homemade breakfasts on the terrace overlooking the gardens and town, were delicious. There are hammocks and a pool too for lazing away the hours after sightseeing or exploring the area. We loved our stay here and would definitely stay here again if back in Paraty.

We were just here for two nights. The place is terrific! The view is incredible, the breakfast is great and served at little tables overlooking the harbor. They put out fruit that attracts beautiful birds every morning. It is a little bit of a walk to get down to town, but worth it to be higher up on the hill. Rooms were nice, each with a balcony and hammock. Staff very nice, rooms very clean. Great place!

I had a great experience at this pousada when I stayed for two nights with my boyfriend and mom in November and I will definitely stay here again when I go back to Paraty. The location is great - it's a short walk outside of town, which means you don't have the noise of the bars and restaurants from town. In addition, it is up a little hill, meaning you have an incredible view from the breakfast area and lobby of the whole town of Paraty and the bay. Our rooms were very nicely furnished and clean, and we were very happy with the breakfast and the service in general. I highly recommend this spot for couples and families.

At walking distance to the old village and to the clean beach. Rooms a very nice and the view is amazing. Although this location is a pousada, a bed&breakfast, you need to know that the service and the way of approaching is a bit formal/almost business wise.
