Set back on a hill opposite the entrance to the Fort gives the views from this pousada out over the marina in Paraty a wow factor. The pousada has a small pool in a well kept but small garden area. However the pool is in the shade mostly, because of the overhanging foliage. The check in was excellent with English fluently spoken and our room (No 1) was clean, comfortable and reasonably well equipped with the bonus of a balcony. However if you get one of the three Lux double rooms whilst they have better views with the balconies No 1 and 2 back on to the kitchen and you might be disturbed by noise as breakfast is prepared. The breakfast and cleaning staff are really very helpful and even though they speak no English they always manage to make themselves understood. The breakfast was a buffet of good choice in quality and quantity with eggs cooked just how you wish. The dining area was very pleasant with views over the tops of houses to the town and also the pool area. We had to change rooms to extend our stay and were then in a room down stairs which was slightly cheaper but quieter all around but with less of a view, choices you may wish to consider. This pousada is just a 15 min walk to the bridge which takes you into the old town of Paraty and you cannot get lost on this pleasant short walk. There are an abundance of shops and restaurants to choose from in the cobbled streets to suit all budgets. It is a very picturesque place to just meander around, whether in the day or picking your restaurant at night. Morro do Forte do not do evening meals. It is also only 5 minutes walk to the town beach although this is not the best for sunbathing or swimming. The better beach is Jabaquara, ten minutes in the other direction over the hill. Here you will also find bars and restaurants on the beach and beach road. Further exploration will require a car and Trindade can be recommended as a beach destination. And yes, the schooner trips are a worthwhile way of seeing the coast and spending a very pleasant day. All around a very good place to stay.
