Wonderful stay at this pousada. Close to downtown, walking distance to the Jabaquara beach. Very comfortable beds, nice breakfast. Front desk guys deserve a100% rating score, very personable. The only reason is not a100% is the noise that the ladies helpers and neighbors do in the early morning, they like to talk and forget that it is not their living...

The Pousada do Forte in Paraty is well located, close to the historic center but not in it. It has ample rooms with beautiful views of the bay. Reception staff very friendly and there is safe parking space for your car. Breakfast is rather basic. Shower in room worked but with only a little water coming out.

The swimming pool is much smaller than the photos suggest.Its a very small pool.The best thing about the place is the friendly staff,especially Roland,one of the managers. The accomodation is good but basic.Nice views from the veranda.I feel for the price,they should have more facilities,like spa or sauna,steam room,and better quality furnishing and food.In Brazil you always pay a top...

This place was great. Non heated pool too cool for off season. Decent breakfast with cake every morning. Lots of people brought families, so I imagine it's not always the quietest place. Couple blocks front the beach. Very helpful and accommodating staff. Bar service in the afternoons...very generous. Only thing that could be better was the shower pressure. We met...

Nice pousada, very clean and quiet. A wonderful view towards the bay from the private terrasse of the room. Convenient location 5 minutes walk to the old city. On the top of it, a friendly and efficient welcome by Patricia.

The hotel is nice, it is well located, and the view, if you are priced with one of the highest rooms, is amazing. The swimming pool is nice and the breakfast is on average. But the best ot the hotel is the warm attention, from all its employees and also from the manager. I strongly recommend this hotel.

We were pleasantly surprise with this quaint hotel. The upper rooms have a fantastic view of the Bay (we had one of these rooms). The service was very good.
