“Awesome resort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012

This is a small and beautiful family owned resort overlooking paraty bay. Luca, the owner was very helpful with the directions. The location is just breathtaking and the resort nicely maintained. We enjoyed each and every moment here. They have a full equipped kitchen and those who like to cook like us can have fun there. And the breakfast is the best thing at this place and words just dont do justice to their breakfast service. I just wish I had stayed longer.

We stayed here for 5 nights and got a great taste of the calm rhythm of life on the Costa Verde. Luca is very generous with his time and advice. The location, views and atmosphere are excellent. The apartments are simple but spotless. The breakfasts are very good. Ask Luca about the local fishing village (Praia Grande) and the beach there. It is amazing.

We finished our seven week trip to South America with a stay at Resort Croce del
Sud. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there. We were treated exceptionally well by our hosts. Nothing was too much trouble. The views from the balcony were amazing and the breakfasts kept us going thoughout the day. We didn't have a car nor did we rent one, but Luca arranged for a taxi to take us into Paraty on two occasions. We also made the 500 metre walk down to the highway and onto Praia Grande and back up again. Quite a feat for two flatlanders. Our stay was a wonderful way to end our vacation.

My friend and I stayed three nights in Resort Croce del Sud and we loved it! It is a very small scale resort, with only a few appartments with full equipped kitches. The view from the hill over the bay is amazing! The breakfast we had was the best I ever experienced. If you go here, we would recommend to go with your own car or rental car, as it is 10 kms out of Paraty. This however makes that the location is peacefull and the only sounds you hear are the sounds of the jungle and the singing birds.

I stayed here with my husband and our two children for 7 days and nights. The service was excellent and the apartment was charming. The location is only a short drive from Paraty. After a day spent touring the town of Paraty, or the many beaches or waterfalls in the area, the Resort Croce del Sud is the perfect place to relax with a drink overlooking the peaceful bay. The breakfasts were delicious and if you don't feel like leaving the resort to get supper at any of the fabulous restaurants in the area, you can order room service.

If you are looking for a calm paradise, you are right here. We travelled for 3 weeks in brazil, paraty was the second place on our journey and afterwards i am a little bit angry, that we just stayed for 3 nights. Because of: Luca and his familiy are very lovely to their guests, the breakfast is incredible, if you need help - you got it on time, the environment is beautiful and the sunrise great. You get up and enjoy .......

We say: we would come again :-)

I stayed here for a week with two friends and my 4 month old son. It was the perfect place to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. The view is stunning and the rooms are well thought out. They had everything you could need - while purposefully foregoing such modern "conveniences" as internet, phone and cable - allowing you to really relax and enjoy the peace and sounds of nature while you were there. Most importantly though - the service was perfect. Luca went out of his way to make sure we had everything we could need (including setting up a crib with mosquito netting and change table in advance of our arrival). The breakfast was delicious and home made from fresh local (on the property) ingredients, and kept us full for much of the day. Every morning we were excited to see what would be dropped off for us in the breakfast basket! The resort is a few minutes (by car) out of town - which allowed for the beautiful surroundings and view you would not get in town - but we rented a car while we were there for about the amount that it would have cost for a return taxi trip into town and had no problems getting around. The added bonus of having a car is that you get to explore some of the further away beaches and sights outside of town. I highly recommend staying here if you have the opportunity!
