Without mistake, I would say that this is one of the best hotels for leisure in Brazil. Located in the Centro Histórico of Paraty walking distance from restaurants, although its own (Quintal) is one of the best in the area. The service is outstanding, you can see that all employees are very well trained. But the most important at this moment is their attention and care with COVID-19 requirements: perfect sanitized rooms, tables, chairs at pool, all employees with masks and cleaning their hands.

A perfect hotel to enjoy the historical Paraty and rurrounding region. Well located at the old downtown area, at a walking distance from its main atractions, etc. Excellent restaurant with local dishes and seafood - probably the best in Paraty. Generous breakfast including fresh produce from the hotel farm nearby. Indoor car parking, exercise room, heated pool, etc.

Charming, helpful staff who organised for us a marvellous trip around the nearby islands. Delicious breakfasts. Interesting fazenda nearby belonging to the hotel, which arranged our transport there and back. Had a wonderful lunch there, with again accommodating staff who gave us various fruits to sample and prepared me some jaca to eat. Appreciated the fact that there was also good lighting in the rooms for ageing eyes to read by in the evening! Despite being centrally located the hotel was quiet. Rooms efficiently and all cleaned daily. Also a good-sized pool to laze by. Temos saudade! Would love to return one day. Highly recommend this as a place to stay in Paraty

The hotel is definitely one of the best that I stayed. Located in the historical center, perfect location to walk to the best restaurants, wonderfully designed, the room (#28) was huge and with a lot of privacy. The pool is lovely with 26 celsius with is perfect temperature for day or evening. The breakfast can be take whenever you wish, and everything is super fresh and delicious. Do not miss the chance to try "waffle's pão de queijo". The staff is incredibly efficient and nice vibe. The restaurant - Quintal das Letras - is amazing and delicious. The porchetta was amazing...Just a little bit expensive but FOR SURE you get much more from what you pay. Highly recommended!

Perfectly located in historic Paraty and very nicely designed, using the historic setting, tropical woods and a touch of Brazilian design. Service is close to perfection, very kind and welcoming without being intrusive. The restaurant and pool area are great for a day inn (we had a rainy day and were very happy with the hotel amenities)... Hard to find better!
