Thanks for the raving review, Alexander, good to hear that your last days in Brazil were memorable ones. Thank you also for your kind words, but I believe the credits should go to the team of the hostel and restaurant, I am just a facilitator:)...More

Great location just in front of the beach, unfortunately this is only one positive. Staff at the reception is useless, or they don't know or they guess, they look unhappy when I asked questions... No laundry amenities, no shuttle service which are mentioned on www.booking.com....More

About
Description
Located on the seafront, the Sereia do Mar is a unique place in a fascinating scenario: the Jabaquara Bay, a beach of calm waters and unique horizon, just a few minutes walk from the historic center of Paraty. Enjoy ...More a full and tasty breakfast when you wake up, get close to an island in one of our kayaks, dance along during our live shows, try our delicious pizzas and caipirinhas ... these are just some of the great things that await you when you stay with us. All in a familiar and contagiously cheerful atmosphere with a staff that loves Paraty and enjoys to provide you an unforgettable vacation! Anyone under 18 must be accompanied by a guardian. Guests under 18 permitted only in private rooms(unless an entire dorm is rented). Less
