The rooms were very nice, breakfast was pretty standard continental breakfast plus fresh juices and fruit. Reception were always there when we needed them. Paraty town center id only a short walk away and it takes 20 minutes to walk to the bus terminal The only minus was that the wifi was very wonky and not working most of the...

We were there with two sons. We felt very bad for all of our time there. Victor and his family were very unwelcoming. Signs 'keep silence' and old man yelling at my husband to wash his feet after the beach ! This was unbelievable experience. Those people never smile and you feel like they can't wait when you pay your...

Our holidays in the Pousada were amazing!, the Pousada Refron du mar is located in front of the Praia do Pontal with nice and comfortable rooms, good cleaning service and friendly staff. The location between the praia and the port is the best, very close to the old town. I will go there again for sure, is the paradise!

Arriving in Paraty poorly planned, I set up shop in an internet cafe looking up rooms for two nights. It being the holiday season, I was having difficulty finding a place with vacancy. I found this pousada by chance on airbnb, but was overwhelmed by the price listed, so I gave them a call to see how much I can...

The room and the bathroom were clean and comfortable, but a bit shabby. The air conditioning worked fine (though a little noisy if you're a light sleeper) and it was essential, as in December temperatures get really high. Location was perfect, near the Old Town and the Wharf from which boat tours leave. We didn't have to use the car...

With my wife we spent 5 nights in Pousada Refron du Mar. In general we recommend this place for a lazy stay. Place is very clean (cleaning service every day) with air conditioning and private bathrooms (towel and hairdryer included). Advantages: - place is very quiet - around 500 meters from the city center so during the night you can...

I had the pleasure of staying here in the beginning of carnival 2014. Victor is a man who knows where to go and what to do in Paraty and around. There is plenty of boat rides with different types of activities to try out and close by a small waterfall with a natural water slide. The locating is great, close...

Positives: The location is excellent - a stone's throw from the beach! Really lovely to be that close. We loved the smart TV but only because we had our hard-drive with us that had films on it that we could watch. Room had a fridge which was great. Really good shower and bathroom. One receptionist (girl with short hair &...

This guesthouse is in an excellent location right by the sea. The room was spacious but very damp after a shower. Breakfast was very nice. Victor always had good recommendations and helped us organise an amazing boat trip. The kitchen is quite small but apart from that everything was good.

Thank Mirrimaria
