    Chic oasis in great location!

    I absolutely loved staying at this hotel. It was tucked into a hidden fortress in the charming old town of Paraty. Even though the surroundings are rustic and bohemian, this hotel felt very modern and chic. Loved the breakfast. My room was super spacious, clean and comfortable. I have zero complaints about my stay and would stay again!

    Lovely oasis in centre of charming old town

    Beautiful place to stay, staff very friendly and helpful although service occasionally a bit slow. Lovely surroundings in the middle of a charming colonial town. We ended the stay feeling very relaxed.

    This is the second time we’ve stayed at this property. We love it, it’s very relaxed has a cool modern tropical vibe. The staff is wonderful and took care of our every need. We stayed in one of the villas and it was a huge, 2 level gorgeous room, there was a bit of street noise, but it was fine. Definitely eat at the restaurant and take a tour of their farm, and eat at the farm to table restaurant at the farm, both are delicious.

    Stylish, comfortable and friendly

    Great location on the edge of the old town, very well restored recently. Make a trip to the farm for lunch - interesting and tasty.

    Excelente escolha em Paraty

    Acomodação bem espaçosa e confortável. O hotel estava muito arrumado e fomos muito bem atendidos por todos os funcionários que eram muito prestativos. O ofurô ainda está desativado devido a pandemia. A sauna poderia ter um controle maior da utilização, como uso por 40 minutos e 20 minutos para a higienização, pois tivemos que aguardar o hospede anterior que ficou entre a piscina e a sauna por algum tempo sem se preocupar em liberar para os demais. A localização da pousada é fantástica e se faz tudo no centro histórico a pé.

    Pousada simplesmente fantástica ! Em TODOS os sentidos, desde a recepção na chegada pelo mensageiro, atendimento da recepção, restaurante, enfim, tudo perfeito. E além do atendimento incrível, a estrutura é magnífica ! Com toda certeza voltarei !

    Se você procura um hotel para descansar, com um belo jardim, excelente atendimento, refeições e conforto, é o local certo. Um elogio especial à Patrícia, que comanda o fantástico restaurante Quintal das Letras, anexo ao hotel. Segunda ela: "não deixe de provar o waffler de pão de queijo servido no café da manhã”

    Relação custo benefício ruim !!!

    A relação custo benefício é ruim, quarto com piso de madeira, cheira estranho, sem nenhum espelho nele, iluminação fraca, no banheiro a pia é apertada e única. Café de manhã de ótima qualidade e variedade, mas como o atendimento é a La Carte, demora, nega o pão e o café não, aí chega o pai de queijo e o suco acabou e demora muito a ser reposto, enfim precisa de melhoras neste atendimento.

    Estadia espetacular

    A pousada é incrível, quartos lindos, piscina aquecida a 26 graus, melhor localização impossível. Destaque pro café da manhã que além de ter um waffle de pão de queijo divino, pode ser tomado a qualquer horário do dia. E também a gentileza de ao final da estadia receber uma sacola com itens colhidos no dia da fazenda bananal. Voltaremos com certeza!
