It is an old characteristic building in the historic centre of the town. The Pousada is very nicely decorated and it has a lot of potential to be the best Pousada of the town. The staff are very friendly and the service is excellent. The breakfast is served in a very nice restaurant and has a lot of variety. Some... More

The hotel is right in the historic centre of town in an old building which is very nicely decorated. The fact that it is an old building is also a problem: there are many mosquitos! There is no glass in the windows and mosquitos can peep in very easily. It would be very very good if there were mosquito screens... More

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
