This was a very basic poussada. The bed linen was inadequate and the sheets were too small. No bedside light - just one main light. Breakfast very basic but did have yoghurt. The price was high for what we got - I think you pay for the proximity to the beach. Note: Taxis charge a flat 20 reals but it...

This B&B is a great place to stay if you want to be close to the beach and in a quiet area. It is not expensive at all. Our host Victor was so wonderful! Very helpful and kind. The breakfast consisted of fruit, bread, meat, cheese, fresh juices and wonderful coffee...everything you need in the morning! Right across from Pontal...

The hotel is located at the beach, at walking distance from the historic city, including restaurants and shops(5-10 min. Walk), and 15 min. Walk from bus station. The beds were not comfortable because the mattresses were old and the pillows hard. The room was very basic, no safe, in room refrigerator and wifi (worked poorly), TV had only a few...

Location was excellent; right by the beach and only 5 mins to walk to town. Parking just outside. Lot's of useful tips about where to eat and where to go. Victor and his family were super friendly. He would work all day and then come out on the beach and have a beer & a chat with us at night...

We were originally going to stay 3 nights but stayed on for a 4th. We really liked Paraty and Refron du Mar. The breakfast was nice, shower great and the location was perfect. Victor his family and other staff were friendly, welcoming and helpful.

The pousada is located in the most beautiful corner of Paraty; just a couple of footsteps to the beach with typical beachside restaurants. It is a short beautiful walk along the water to get to the historic center. The rooms are basic but very clean and nice; the facilities are well looked after. Breakfast is served with a beach view....

After days of traveling through the state of Rio de Janeiro and getting killed by mosquitoes in other hostels, Pousado Refron Do Mar saved me. NO MOSQUITOES HERE!!! The manager Victor was extremely accommodating and friendly (and speaks english!). It's a charming little hostel, right next to the beach and very close to the historic center, but also quiet and...

The rooms were pretty basic (no fridge) but the bathrooms were nice. Well located on the beach and helpful staff made our time in paraty enjoyable . In comparison to some of the hostels we saw nearby , this was definitely one of the better options. Victor was extremely helpful and he made our stay there very pleasant.

Without a doubt, this was one of the nicest hostels I stayed in, in South America. Run by a lovely family and has a great mix that will suit people who want a quiet night in or a fun night out. The hostel is perfectly placed, right on the beach with cafes and kiosks. Set in a small bay with...

This pousada is very well located, on Pontal beach, so very close from the historic city center but on a more quiet area.
