I've travelled around the world and Pousada Guarana is one of the best places I've ever stayed at. The rooms are simple, but David and Jimena are outstanding! Everyone working at the Pousada was great and Mica was especially helpful and patient. Admittedly, the Pousada is a bit of a hike into the centre of town and you'll definitely feel the walk if the sun is beating down or if it's 3am during Carnaval. But you can borrow a bike from the Pousada or take a taxi back from town and because it's away from the centre, the area is very quiet. The buses to nearby beaches and towns also stop very close to the Pousada, which was great.
I completely agree with TNgirlinBrazil (who I'm pretty sure I met - the pool area is great for relaxing and meeting other guests!) that this is a great place for foreigners, they will provide you with a wealth of information. I really enjoyed visiting Paraty because of the info I received, such as the background behind one of the Carnaval parades or where to go for great photos. David and Jimena also helped us with our entire holiday in Brazil, not just the period we stayed in Paraty. They sorted our bus to Paraty and offered assistance in case we ran into problems during the rest of our holiday. Absolutely a great place to stay!More
