We had an amazing stay at Croce del Sud. Every morning, breakfast would arrived promptly at 8:30am, beautifully served and wrapped in banana leaves. We ate overlooking a spectacular view. It rained for much of our stay in Paraty which was too bad, but it didn't kill our morale. Instead of exploring the beaches, we read for hours on the deck sitting on a swinging chair and looking at the clouds move across the bay and the mountains. Not bad!
We did have one half day on a quaint, under explored beach before the rain settled in. It was only a 20 something minute walk from our room (down a steep hill), through a small fishing village (with men loading their catch of the day into ice filled trucks) and there was a little bar by the beach where we drank coconut cachasa drinks and ate mediocre fried calamari.
Only 4 stars instead of 5 because it really was too far from the city center to not have a car. We relied on the bus, which was fine, but it took at most 45 minutes (with the construction project going on the main road) to get into Paraty. And in the evenings, we had to be very vigilant to make sure we got off at the right stop through dark, foggy windows. If you stay here, expect to either be isolated (this was our most relaxing part of the trip). If you want to stay in Paraty and go out to bars late, maybe not the most convenient.
