Located less than a 5 minute walk from the heart of the historic city center, less than 10 from the bus station and pretty much a 15 minute walk to all that the town of Paraty has to offer. Pousada Marendaz is awesome.
Comfortable beds, clean rooms and a big shower. Flat screen TV, small fridge, and air conditioning, ceiling fan with two windows to a room allow for perfect temperature even in the heat of day.
Daily breakfast includes fresh squeezed orange juice, eggs, cereal, tea, coffee and a variety of fruits and is served until 10am (not 9!!!).
Solid wifi and friendly staff, even has a small pool! Found myself feeling at home in no time. They even helped with booking a jeep tour and other activities.
This is a lovely little hotel just a few minutes walk from the beautiful historical centre of Paraty so very close to all the shops, bars and restaurants.
The hotel is very comfortable and clean and the rooms surround a little courtyard where there is a tiny pool. Our room was a bit strange in that we had to walk through a little sitting room to get to it, sometimes we had to walk past random people sat there watching TV when we went in and out of our room.
The staff were very friendly and made us feel very welcome. Breakfast was included which always had a good selection of fresh fruit and good coffee.
Complimentary wifi is available but sometimes the reception isn't very good in the bedrooms.
I liked this place and would love to visit again.
We stayed at this hotel for 2 days with our tour group with Gap Adventures. I feel like we actually lucked out with this one as we got an upstairs room (could be because we didn't have much luggage..it would be very difficult to drag your stuff up the narrow stairs). We heard from our fellow travellers that downstairs is very loud, especially those rooms near the front desk. Our room was small, mouldy, smelled a little, but at least it was quiet. The bathroom had a weird small side door where we guessed was to ventilate. It did not really work thou. We didn't really figure out the AC and it got quite cold at night. The breakfast is only ok, mostly just bread and fruits. They have a 'pool' which had freezing water and floating bugs. O, and they make you leave your room key at the front desk, which at times are unattended.
On the plus side, the location was pretty convenient. There is a cheap laundry place cross the street and they do a superb job!! There is also a super market close by where we were able to stock up on water and snacks.
The small rooms pack the beds in with a double and bunk beds in each room - tight for four people with bags. The rooms are on two floors surrounding a courtyard with a plunge pool (a bit murky!). Although the room I was in didn't have a/c I believe it was available in some. A hearty breakfast is served in the courtyard. The location is great - just minutes from the historic centre.
Since I got to the place, I found it lovely. It is a place full of plants, a rounded swimming pool, place to hace something to eat and has TV and internet available 24 hs. The owners of the place are always there to help you out with everything- they give the impression that they enjoy receiving foreiner people and they were interested on our confort all the time.
The morning breakfast is amazing!! juice, fruits, ham, cheese, phew!! Huge! and always on time. The rooms are comfy and decorated with very nice taste. I really felt like home.
The supermarket is on the same block, the laundry and clothes shops too. Is very close to the bus station and 100 meters away from the historical center.
I would always come back if I travel to PAraty again!!
