Loved this hotel for many reasons - bright and quirky decor which gives even more character to the building which is beautiful in its own right. Friendly, attentive staff, fabulous room with balcony looking over a quiet garden area, tasty breakfast and fantastic location for Paraty old town. Had great fun watching the tiny monkeys frolicking in the garden area... More

Great location in the historic center, friendly staff and comical marmosets! While this pousada is a little worn, the cheery colors, art, staff and comfy rooms were great for our family. My daughter would have liked vegan options at breakfast.

A beautiful little guest house, in a beautiful small town, full of character and personality. Hotel staff were very friendly. Cobbled streets make getting around fun but tricky. A gorgeous beach just 5mins away. There is also an amazing Gelato store right across from the hotel. A must stay whilst in Brazil.

We wanted to crash out in the heart of this historic small town and the Pousada do Sandi met expectations. A small lobby area off the cobbled streets leads into a downstairs lounge. Reception was courteous and efficient. We were assigned a ground floor room which was not large but faced in to the courtyard and avoided the street noise... More

I stayed at the Pousada do Sandi and what the hotel offers better is its location, and of course a contact with a picturesque historic building (which could have a better maintenance). The room was comfortable and cosy. The staff working in the morning is attentive and polite but the shift change for the night staff makes bad for the... More

Great staff from checkin through to check out. Amazing property with tastefully decorated interior. Nice rooms that give you a small window into the past in the cobblestoned historic centre of Paraty. The bar area is great, the billiard table is cool and the location is great.

The hotel was nice for who likes traditional, historic sites. Stayed in room 205, facing the street. Big room, good bed, ok a/c, good shower. Service was good. The problem was the noise. Despite the noise reduction double-glass windows, the noise was disturbing. There was live music and people laughing out loud in the streets until very late at night.... More
