We stayed at Pousada Literaria last weekend with the kids. They enjoyed so much, and the hospitality and comfort is unique. My wife and I stayed there for a number of times and we highly recommend this hotel. The staff is amazing and very kind.

Love love love this hotel.
The hotel is a perfect hideaway in the middle of the old town with beautiful rooms, a lovely pool and grounds and the most attentive staff I have ever come across.
The service provided was beyond excellent. The staff were happy to help us out with whatever we needed ... they even found somewhere for us to watch an obscure TV sports channel showing our local London football team!!! (Thank you Anna)
We were in South America for 9 weeks and this was by far our favourite hotel.

Room Tip: We had a lovely room near the pool.

Pousada Literaria (PA) in Paraty is the ideal hideaway a few hours by car or 30 minute by plane from bustling Rio de Janeiro. It has been recently renovated with great attention to detail and fine taste. The pool in the middle of PA is perfect to spend some time in the sun. it also has a very nice sauna which is great to end a winter day. PA is located a few steps away from the very center of the little beautiful old town Paraty. the touch and feel of PA is comparable to any small city resort in Asia or Europe. the only thing which can be improved is the speed of the WiFi. it is too slow to do some serious work which may be intended but should be changed.

We loved our 3 nights at the Literaria in Paraty. The property's decor and design is perfection. We loved the contemporary library (even if all the books are in Portuguese!), the comfortable reception area and beautiful pool. The rooms were adorable -- we stayed on the first floor facing the pool -- the high, slanted ceiling is a nice touch, as were the books and blankets everywhere. The location is fantastic since you can walk out the front and be right in the old town or head out the back and within a block you are at the tour office where you can book Jeep and horseback tours. The included breakfast every morning was delicious; plenty of fresh fruits and they would make eggs to your preference. The reception staff was friendly, helpful and spoke English; my only comment would be that the bar staff could work on these elements. I highly recommend the Literaria if you want peace and quiet in Paraty!

It's right in the centre of Paraty, has a fabulous pool, is recently refurbished to a high standard and the levels of service are excellent. But all the better for us and the other few guests that this place is not (yet) packed. You can spend the days around the pool, go for a stroll into the centre of 'historic Paraty', which is on your doorstep, come back and grab a drink at the poolside bar (or a snack). The range of reasturants in Partay is good and the three recommendations by the pousada were excellent. You got the feeling nothing was too much trouble and when we asked questions (directions, massage options, transfers to the airport) we were given a printed response with the options so we could mull it over, very good!

There are around 30 rooms and they have plans to extend to include a full reasturant and another suite. It's certainly on the more expensive side but well worth the money.

Room Tip: We stayed in a suite on the top (1st floor), room 25. It was big. I don't think there is much di...

The refurbishment has really added value to this pousada. Those who have visited before will see some major improvements. Rooms are large, beautiful decor, amazing bathrooms, extremely comfortable. The pool is still the big highlight as no other historic-centre pousada has the same leisure area as this pousada. Added bonue the pool is heated in the evenings, so I often stayed in there until night-time. The pool menu is good with a very fair price. The breakfast has remained the same with some small add-ons but it is still good. Excellent to go into your room and find lots of reading material. Staff is very prestative and the old staff has been retrained. Special thanks to the bar men and to the reception staff. Will certainly come back as often as I visited the old pousada, even though the price is now the downside (but worth it in the end). thoroughly spolied...
Also ordered a massage, which was the best I ever had.

Room Tip: Confort level is the same in all rooms, price relates more to size of room then anything else
