“Best View! great Pousada”
Reviewed July 13, 2009

The Morro do Forte is a great pousada up the Hill in Paraty. It is a short 10 minute walk to the Historic centre.
The Rooms are spacious and clean. The view from the rooms is great. The view from the breakfast lounge is simply the best there is.
The nr 10 room will get a bit moist when it is raining a lot.
The staff is very helpfull. They speak english, spanish and german.
Paraty is great, it is safe to walk from the historic centre to the Pousada at night.

We stayed here for a week with our 15-month old - it was brilliant! Incredible views over this beautiful part of the world, unbelievably delicious breakfast, nice pool, quiet and friendly atmosphere. The rooms were pleasant with lovely balconies. The room by the pool was especially nice (although no balcony). The hotel is an easy 15-minute walk into the old town and a 5-minute walk to lovely beaches. Kid-friendly. We can't recommend it highly enough!

We had a six night stay at this pousada. I think it's a well-priced place, as there are several pousadas in town that charge more, and the cheaper ones didn't look so hot from the outside.

The view is fantastic; their website doesn't do it justice!

We also found the afternoon staff, Marcia, very helpful in setting up tours. We went horseback riding and a four-hour escuna tour through her and really enjoyed ourselves. In addition, she speaks fluent English, a huge plus.

  • Liked — The look of it, the views
  • Disliked — The door to our room stuck, hard to open

We spent 4 nights at Pousada Morro do Forte and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Paraty was the highlight of our 3 week trip to Brazil. We found the pousada to be in a quiet peaceful location away from the noise of the old town but not too far to walk home after a meal out at night. The pousada was clean, the room airy and bright, the view superb and the breakfast was outstanding. The service was relaxed and friendly, the staff always ready to assist. We appreciated their policy of booking tours for you without charging extra commission. Altogether a great stay.

We stayed at the Pousada Morro do Forte for one week, it really is perfectly located 5 minutes walk downhill to the town center, its not a very big town and getting around on foot is the best option.

It offers comfortable accommadation with air-conditioning, TV, fridge, small pool, hammock and balconies with sea views or of the town, its location allows you to see the true lush green of the sourrounding area.

Though this is generally more expensive than other places in Paraty it does offer a great location and fabulous views, we spent many nights relaxing on the hammocks and enjoying our cold drinks.

Highly recommended!
