We are back in the Netherlands and back to work. But our thoughts go back regularly to Brazil, Paraty and especially to Eliconial. Ricardo and Ivan have since made a good job. If you get up and the monkeys come from your hand to eat, when you walk through the garden and you think, I want to live here. If... More

I spent 4 nights here while visiting Brazil with my family which included two teenage boys. It was absolutely marvelous. Loved the hosts, our roomy guesthouse, the surroundings and the breakfast each morning by the pool. Would absolutely recommend to anyone traveling to Paraty.

We were welcomed by the lovely hosts, Eduardo and Ricardo, who were very friendly and helpful, offering to book us trips, recommend restaurants. They are multilingual (we heard them speaking fluent Portuguese, English, and French to different guests). The rooms are actually chalets; clean and quiet, each with their own porch area and hammock. You feel like you are in... More

To stay at Eliconial was a good choice. We felt most welcome when we were intercepted by Ricardo who told us what we should experience in Paraty. We accepted the advice eatery and experiences. Eliconial is a small oasis that is certainly possible to enjoy. It is beautifully decorated and we got the feeling of being in the jungle .... More

We loved staying here and would come again if we were ever in town. We were hesitant to book here since it's further from the historic center, but ended up loving it. Yvan was a great host, made us feel very welcome and comfortable. He gave us great tips of things to do around Paraty and was a great guide.... More

There's not much you can fault about this place...if anything! Considering Paraty is such a beautiful place, it's impressive that this hotel can stand out so brilliantly. As soon as we arrived we genuinely felt at home, greeted with freshly made hibiscus water and given a thorough run through of the town, including a print out of TripAdvisors best restaurants...

Wouldn't want to stay anywhere else in Paraty the Eliconial is a relaxing tropical escape. We enjoyed the 20 minute walk along the beach into town and taxis are easy to get. The pool, gardens, hot tub and overall atmosphere is relaxing and romantic. Loved the friendly animals, with the resident parrot, monkeys, fat cat and chic Louis the dalmation.... More
