I rarely put a 5 stars to an hotel on TripAdvisor. I am a frequent but quite demanding traveler. I must admit that if the 6 stars was available I would have put 6 to the Pousada Literaria in Paraty. One of the best hotels I ever visited (and I have visited a lot !). Let see if I can... More

Good location in the old town - very green and tranquil. Lovely breakfast area with very attentive staff. Reception staff were multi lingual and extremely helpful and also helped with the organisation of trips. The pool area is lovely - gorgeous setting and long enough to swim . A little warm for my taste as I like to swim laps... More

We have spent 4 days in this Pousada. Hard to find words for expressing the hospitality and helpfullness of the staff. All these people have made us feel great and welcommed. They not only helped us with everything we needed in a hotel or in the city but also did a great job helping us to find the lost luggage... More

We booked the most basic of rooms ("apartment") which was more than adequate for our stay. The room was clean and comfortable - great bed & good shower. Plenty of storage. The room was serviced while we ate breakfast every morning. My only niggle is that the lighting was quite dim. The property itself is well located - pretty much... More

Great service, impecable rooms, quite an escape... An oasis... Food is also very good, although because of its location, it is very easy to go out to walk and choose a restaurant. The integration between nature and their architecture is incredible.

we had a great time here except for the rain. Helpful staff.Bar area lacked atmosphere due to lack of music/layout? Food was mostly excellent ,specially breakfast! Great service and biggest swimming pool we saw in Paraty. Spa not very inspiring and difficult to find.

This small hotel is a little oasis in the middle of the bustling resort of Parachy. The rooms are large and well fitted and everything is immaculate. The location is perfect and the Pousada has all the amenities and more that you could wish for. A must for anyone visiting the area.

This wonderful hotel has a Relais Chateau feel to it. Situated in the historic town of Paraty, this hotel is a gem. Service is excellent, as is breakfast, their gorgeous granite pool etc etc... You can feel that the attention to detail is impeccable: toilet paper always set in the right direction with the folded tip, perfectly manicured garden, marvelous... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in the historical center of Paraty, surrounded by cultural richness and natural exuberance, Pousada Literaria occupies a fully restored colonial house. High quality service, comfortable accommodations and complete leisure - here, every guest is always our main character. FLIP's official hotel, the Pousada Literaria is curated by the journalist Miguel Conde, who is inspired by literary references to guarantee the hotel's cultural identity. A stanza of a poem, a verse in a song, an excerpt from a novel- each corner of the hotel was designed to seduce. With the highest quality in service, we consider each of our guests our main character. The Pousada Literaria was projected by Jacobsen Arquitetura to have an atmosphere that reflects the tradition of Paraty in the arts and culture, and to offer all the refinement and comfort to our guests. The 23 accommodations are spacious and cozy and are equipped with king size bed, LCD TV with Sky channels, DVD, air conditioning, safe, wireless internet, besides a minibar that can be customized by the guest. All of them have towels and robes made of high quality cotton and Natura amenities, besides 600 thread count sheets for your comfort. Moreover, the Master Suites are composed with a living room and a Jacuzzi. For your comfort and convenience, Pousada Literaria offers indoor parking space for your car during your stay in Paraty. The leisure area has a hot swimming pool in its central area, bar, dry sauna, massage room and shower room - ideal for relaxation after a walk through the city, a dive in the ocean or bathing in the waterfalls of Paraty. In the rooms, you have a private collection of books and DVDs at your disposal and, in the library, a selection of almost 2.000 Titles of films and books to choose from. ... more   less
