The hotel was nice. When we got there, our rooms weren't ready (we were a group). We left our suitcases at the bar. The rooms were nice, a king size bed, a bathroom (with no door though), TV, air con, fan on ceiling. The problem was there was no mosquito net at the bathroom window and we got bitten to... More

Following advice from TA reviews I booked a superior room , which gave us extra space. Very comfortable bed, good a/c, excellent shower. Breakfast standard/good, though the juice was not good, tasted like powdered. Did not eat in the restaurant at night, so can't comment. We arrived from Rio on the Costa Verde bus from Rio ( which is excellent),... More

A great location being just outside the old town on what appears to be Main Street. The overall feeling was that when it was originally furnished it would have been absolutely fabulous with a pool to cool off in at the end of the day or even a swim if you're happy with a few strokes from end to end....

During our stay in Brazil, Pousada do Principe was our final destination and it was by far the best place we've visited. The swimming pool is wonderful and refreshing, the cleaning personnel even sorted our shoes and the personnel was very friendly. When we had problems with our travel agency, the manager personnally took care of it and told us... More

Spent three nights here recently. The pousada is excellent in many respects. Comfortable rooms, excellent service, very good breakfast. However, the amount of mosquitos/biting insects near the pool was severe. The staff have thought of that and provided repellent and also a plug in device to use in your room. The wi-fi only works in the poolside area, not in... More

Located close to the coach and bus station, this inn is on what looks like the high street in Paraty with cafes, shops and pharmacies close by. It is not in the historic town of Paraty but only two blocks away. Staff is friendly and helpful. Nice breakfast, inviting swimming pool do dive in after a day out and about... More

The Pousada is very pretty with a nice pool and lots of relaxation areas. Good wifi everywhere and free. Good service but very few staff speak English. Main niggle was the size of the rooms which were were really compact, and lack of storage of any sort, except a small hanging and shelf space. no hooks on the walls, nowhere... More

This is a simple pousada in an okay location in Paraty - in fact, because it's in a very ordinary road you perhaps experience more reality than much of Paraty offers, in that the town is stunning, a World Heritage Site, and therefore almost unreal to us ordinary folk. I really liked this pousada because it had been the home... More
