“Worth writing a review!”
Reviewed January 15, 2012

I dont usualy write reviews. But I need to make an exception in this case. Even 6 months on from my satay at Croce del Sud in August 2011, the fond memories endurse. Sylish but rustic acomodation, the genuine warmth of host Lucca nad his fmaily, the excellent brakfasts and, best of all the msmerising views.

We actually spent last summer in croce del sur and the place was totaly amazing. What impressed us the most was the view from de balcony and the great service that was offered by luca and his wife who were incredible hosts. The apartments are beautyfull for two, but if you come as a family there is room for at least two more. 
If you go to parati, go to praia du sono (dream beach), best beach we've ever been to. 
For last we would like to apologise to luca, because we promissed to make a review as soon as we got back home to argentina, but we totaly forgot. Luka not only was a great host who brought us our breakfast every mourning, but he was actually a great tour guide and told us about every place we should visit in our stay in parary, and he didn't disapoint. 
If you go to parati, this place is a must.

We found this to be a very peaceful place with stunning views and lots of space for 2 of us. I think it would be ideal for families and friends given it has two floors and generous balcony.

Luca was very accomodating and even made breakfast for us on the last day for a 6.30am departure, above and beyond. It was also really nice to be able to cook in the evening with the washing up being done by the cleaner in the morning.

I found it a little sparse and basic, but that´s part of the appeal; I would have liked another chair or hammock for the balcony, but my husband loved it just the way it was.

A great place to stay and chill outside Paraty.

Thank you Luca & team for a great stay! Unique pousada on the top of a mountain with the greatest view! Loved the spacious and beautifully decorated rooms, great with kids, especially when it's raining - and it did every day. We didn't mind though, as you could go to the beaches in the morning and get all cozy in the afternoon with a good cup of coffee, overlooking the bay. No fone, internet or TV - what a wonderful experience, everybody should do that once in a while..and the kitchenete, well equipped, was very helpful, we cooked every night - best part, the cleanup is done by Luca's friendly staff. Paraty gets very crowded around New Year's, so with little kids it's not an option to wait hours in front of crowded restaurants in the rain...The only annoying thing were the many mosquitos, you couldn't avoid them, as the structure of the resort is semi-open and the ventilators wouldn't keep them away entirely...we used lots of repellent, but even-tough they got us again and again....but as a total, great experience! Tudo de bom para voce e sua familia, Luca, muito obrigada por tudo!

Room Tip: There are only 3, so you'll have lots of privacy....

I recently stayed in resort Croce del Sud with my parrents for 2 nights.
The pousada is just a short drive outside of Paraty, ideal if you don't want to stay in the middle of the city.
The rooms and the view are absolutely perfect! Big, spacious rooms, with balcony, fridge, etc.
As you can see on the pictures, the view is amazing.

The breakfast is one of the best breakfast I ever had on a hotel/pousada. All homemade, really well done.

Luca, the host is really friendly and you can easily trust his recomendations and connections.

Only minus was that the extra bed (if you are 3 persons) was more like a flip-out sofa, and I wasn't that satisfied by sleeping on it. You can't really lay down in the middle of it, only in the sides. The WiFi didnt work as well while we was there, also a little minus.

but overall, I would definately go back, any day. It was a wonderful stay.

My wife and I spent 2 nights here on our honeymoon. The accomadations are spacious and very clean. There is no air conditioning but it was not needed as the weather was mid 70s everyday. There are fans in all rooms if we needed a breeze at any point. we had a beautiful private balcony with an unbelievable view of the bay. Luca was a very attentive host and a very interesting person. We enjoyed our stay here so much we added an extra day. Paraty is a 10 minute car and is a beautiful and unique place on its own. I would highly recommend staying here if you visit the area.
