My husband and I travelled from Canada for holidays in Brazil and we spent 10 days in Paraty . Pousada Sandi provided us with a lovely stay! The room was very comfortable with charming Brazilian decoration .Breakfast is served in a lovely, bright dining room with views to the pool and garden: there's a variety of options including fresh fruits, tropical juices, omelets and home-made baked goods and jams. On weekends there was live " bossa nova" music during breakfast. Their own Italian restaurant, "Pipo", is equally charming with an excellent menu. We enjoyed spending time around the beautifully-manicured garden/pool area, as well as the pool itself: very quiet and relaxing, The charming decor of the hotel is unique and tasteful as every detail is thought of. In addition, we loved the cozy reading/lounge rooms available for guests. Service is impeccable: all the staff from the reception, breakfast/dining/bar servers, cleaning ladies were very professional, corteous and helpful (and always smiling!) They provided us with useful information on activities/restaurants in and around Paraty To summarize: it was the perfect, romantic and relaxing place to stay and we would like to thank everyone. Highly recommend !

Very nice, boutique hotel in heart of Paraty. Top notch rooms, beautiful grounds, and nice swimming pool/jacuzzi. Service was also high-class. They treated us with free ice cream, drinks, and chocolates at their local stores. Overall, great value for the price and would highly recommend staying here if you visit Parary.

My spouse and I spent two wonderful days and nights here during a private tour of Brazil. This charming pousada is set in a 300-year old colonial building in Paraty's historic center. It is full of character, which you will not find in modern, chain hotels. It definitely captures the spirit of the town! Upon arrival, we found the desk staff very kind and helpful. They spoke excellent English, and welcomed us with a coupon for a complimentary ice cream at Miracola, a great gelataria located within the compound. We were also offered a free drink in the bar, to be used that day. Both were delightful surprises! Our room, #120, which was small, cozy and private, was tucked in a corner just off the pool area. With a nautical theme, it was decorated in red, white and blue, and featured a queen bed, white end tables, a wall TV (that received CNN!), a walk-in shower, and a blue entry door. There were two windows, but the shutters were nailed shut, and unfortunately could not be opened. As such, we had no natural light, and had to rely on artificial lighting from lamps--and the window in the bathroom for a nightlight. Air conditioning, and an overhead fan kept us cool. And because it was so secluded, it was very quiet. The sunny breakfast room was located just a short distance across from our room. It overlooked the pool. Morning meals there were delightful, with omelets made-to-order, along with a selection of fruits and breads. We dined our first night at Pippo, the marvelous Italian Restaurant within the complex, with a black and white "1960s cinema-inspired setting showcasing the photography of the iconic paparazzo photographer Marcello Geppeto." We highly recommend having a meal here. My husband and I particularly enjoyed the garden courtyard with its beautifully maintained tropical plants. Taking our morning coffees, or afternoon/evening glasses of wine to drink in this area was a tranquil and relaxing experience we will never forget. Thank you, Pousada do Sandi for a memorable and enjoyable stay!!!
