I've been a guest of Bambu Pousada during december 2015 with my partner and initially we have planned to stay there for 7 days. The experience was so awful that we decided to leave at the 4th day. I do not even know where to begin. First of all, the bed sheets and the trash were never cleaned from the... More

This is a nice pousada and, not being a hotel we expected a smaller, more personalized experience, and this is what we got. Distinctive A-frame rooms with a double upstairs and two singles downstairs. Two bathrooms were nice, as were the minibar and the great air conditioning. The welcome was nice and Ivan, the manager, was affability itself. Yes, you... More

We stayed here two nights. It is away from the historic center of Paraty (25 minutes walk) which is a problem if you do not have a bicycle or a car. Facilities are OK and the price is fair . The swimming pool is nice. The breakfast room is dark and depressing, the rooms do not have windows (except in... More

Definitely off of the beaten path, a bit confusing to find, but was worth the effort. Parking is really scarce, but luckily not a problem for us as we were here during a slower season. Initial greeting was very friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean and all front on the pool which is kept clean daily. The pool area is... More

Stayed 5 nights in a loft room in Feb 2015. When arriving at the bus station around 7pm and finding no taxi's we walked. It's far with heavy backpacks.

This is a nice little place just on the outside of the main city center. The people/family running it are very friendly and accommodated us. The pool is extremely refreshing after a long day in the heat. The property is clean. You can walk to the main part of the town which took us about 10 minutes and about 30... More

Nice enough hotel with breakfast in a garden overlooking the calm calm river.. Simple hotel with simple rooms. Mosquitoes everywhere in paraty though, so beware... Major quibble is the distance - a good 20-30 minutes walk to the town. In mid-day sun, it can scorch, so lunch was a reluctant affair.. But staff are great and helpful, even if English... More
