“Didn`t like it”
Reviewed November 18, 2009

We arrived ( me, my husband e our son) late in the night and nobody openned the gate to us. After 40 minutes, we had to jump the window of the reception and the man that was responsible for the reception was drunk, sleeping on the floor. He couldn't even talk to us and we had to look for the room's key by ourselves. We did not even made the check -in.
The breaskfast was not good and the staff was very negligent.
We will never be in there again.

Myself, husband and 2 year old son spent a wonderful 5 days in this hotel over Christmas. It had everything it advertised (child play area, games room, fitness centre etc) The staff were attentive and the accommodation was excellent (chalet style accom) set in gardens near the pool. The pool was just right for adults to have a swim and our son to splash around in a separate shallow bit. The breakfast was superb... buffet style with all the fruit, cold meat and bread you could imagine, juices so fresh and scrambled eggs on the side. A quiet, serene place a short walk from the bridge over the river into the main town... great for young familes (although forget your buggy when walking around town on cobbled streets)...

Stayed December 2006

We stayed at the Villas de Paraty in January of 2005. The grounds of the property are beautiful and well kept, the room/villa was clean, and the breakfast was decent. However, we were disappointed with this pousada:

1.) This is a great place to stay if you have kids, or want to be around kids. They have a very child-friendly atmosphere. While we were there there were several families with kids there and they seemed to be having a great time. While we do enjoy kids, we weren't too excited about sharing the small pool with 8 kids and their pool toys. We were hoping for someplace more romantic. It wasn't a good match for our needs (Honeymoon).

2.) Location, location, location. The whole point of travelling to Parati is the town, and one thing we were sorely disappointed with was the distance this pousada was from the actual town. It is about one half kilometer to the edge of the old-town. The map on the Villas de Paraty website says that they are 500m from the town, but the map is not drawn to scale and it looks much closer than it really is. This was our fault for not reading the map closely, but if we would have known that this pousada was the furthest from the old town of all of the nicer pousadas, we would not have stayed there. We actually tried to switch pousadas once we arrived in Parati and realized how far it was from everything, but all of the nicer ones were sold out. It is a 15-20 minute walk to the town (a taxi ride isn't practical), and if you plan to go on a schooner ride into the bay (which is one of the big attractions in Parati), the docks are on the opposite end of the old-town- at least a 30 minute walk from the pousada if you are walking at a good clip.

The staff was very nice and curteous. We left early (after 2 days instead of 4 days) to go back to Rio and they had no problems with that.

When we go back to Parati, here is what we will do:
- Stay **in** the old-city. If we can afford it, we will stay someplace like Pousada do Sandi (it is a beautiful Pousada) and make sure that we have 2 full days and 2 nights there. The town is a bit boring during the day, and this is a good time to go on a schooner ride or to Trinidade (there are plenty of tour companies in the town that can arrange this and their offices are usually open in the evenings). At night enjoy the town: listen to music, walk around, have a fantastic meal, drinks, etc.
