We spent one night here and were disappointed. The staff was very good and welcoming, but the general housekeeping left a lot to be desired. I think the Prince needs to make a visit. I left these same comments at the front desk. The room (211) was quiet, but the walls in the shower were a bit moldy. The gardening needs to be taken care of. At the top of the stairs, is a dead plant over the stairway, take it out. The light fixtures were full of bugs. These may seem like small things, but small things make the difference. The breakfast was very good, both the orange cake and passion fruit cake very fresh.

We chose this hotel as we wanted to stay in a charming place that would be in accordance with the city of Paraty! We got it right!
We were welcomed by Rodrigo who gave us great suggestions on restaurants and tours!
The hotel is lovely decorated and the pool is a must! Very nice after all the walkng around town.
The breakfast was also above average at this kind of pousadas and everything was delicious. The rooms are nicely decorated.
Location of the hotel is also a plus. It is located outside the historical centre but it is a very short walk from there.
I will definitely stay there again when I go back with my family!

We found everything about Parity idyllic, including the pousada. The rooms are laid out around a courtyard with a pool and bar - you relax as soon as you walk in. Only downside was that we drunk them out of gin!

Charming old building with real character and a lovely pool/dinning area which is fantastic for hanging. Rooms have very large beds, but the air-con is ancient and hence noisy. Location is really good, very close to old town and a short walk from the bus station They had a problem with the Wi-Fi whilst we were there but they were very nice about it. Recommended.

The Pousada do Principe is located quite near the old centre of Paraty. Its rooms are tastefully decorated and spacious. Staff do not all speak English but everybody is very friendly and helpful. Trips and excursions can be booked at the reception.
