“Love this place”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

A group of 10 of us had this place to ourselves. Its a collection of rooms with a communal dining area which we were allowed to use to try out making some homemade caipirinhas. Great location and Paraty is so beautiful I would definitely retun. The staff were really welcoming and friendly and I would definitely stay there again. The only downside is that the showers were a little cold, otherwise it would have been a 5 star.

When we discovered that our first choice for accommodations in Paraty was closed for vacation at the time of our visit, we consulted the TripAdvisor reviews and decided to book Pousada dos Contos. Excellent choice! Location is very convenient to the historical part of town, the bus station, ATMs, etc. Very clean, nice breakfast, helpful owner and staff. We stayed 3 nights, which was just about perfect without a car. We found Paraty to be charming in April (more or less off-season, so not crowded) and the beauty of the "Green Coast" did not disappoint!

Cenral but in a quiet location just off the Main Street this small and friendly B&B was what we expected and the breakfast was good. Rooms clean and simple with ceiling fans. Air Con also available but at an extra price.

This simple Inn was very well located. The owner is very friendly and so is the staff. We have no major complaints. The breakfast was good and the room was decent.
Maybe the garage was too small and the bed wasn't the best. But overall we were happy with it.

We chose this pousada because of the very positive reviews on TripAdvisor and felt completely misled. The people there are very nice and friendly, it is true, no complaint at all, and it is close to the historic town centre. However, when we went into our room we instantly felt depressed - I opened the shutters and there was a high wall about a metre max from the window. The bathroom was dark and outdated. There was no wardrobe. The fridge in the room was noisy so had to be kept turned off. The "double bed" (more like two singles pushed together) was incredibly uncomfortable, I don't know how old the mattress was, but I had an awful night. If you had bad weather in Paraty, you would not want to be in this pousada as to stay in the room would be depressing and there is no proper lounge area and absolutely no outside are you can use (it's a car park)

The breakfast (described by some here as "simple but delicious") is extremely basic, hardly any choice at all.

We were supposed to stay 8 nights but decided to leave after the first night, so only stayed 2. We found another pousada just down the road with a huge room, pool and fantastic breakfast (and no extra 10% charge for using the air conditioning!!!) for about R$40 per night more, it was incomparably better - Pousada Valhacouto is where I will go next time.

If all you want in a B &B is comfort and cleanliness then you can't go past Contos. Its very affordable, well located and friendly staff, although English is bit of a problem. Breakfast is about average but adequate, overall a good choice for the price.

A very cosy place to stay off the main roads, but close to everything in the historical town. Beds are comfortable, the rooms clean and the breakfast simple but plentiful. Julia is a wonderful host and thoughtfully had a hot cuppa waiting for us on our return to the hotel after a torrential downpour-would definitely recommend.
