“Great Host”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 September 2012

The hotel is very nice indeed. Yes, the rooms are a bit dark and there could be some improvements here and there but overall this was a very positive experience. The owner was very helpful, he assisted us with every aspect of our stay in Paraty, from restaurant reservations to calling ahead to our next destination to announce our late arrival. I looked around town into other pousadas and there are in fact some that are closer to downtown and are more "designed" and luxurious, but they are also almost three times more expensive. Sometimes, helpful staff makes up for small shortcomings.

I found Pousada Bambu Bamboo on Purple Roofs, not Trip Advisor, by luck, and I am glad I did. The location is perfect -- easy walk or taxi into 'downtown' Paraty, but just enough removed, on river's edge, to feel like a destination of its own. Hosts are an English - Brazilian couple, os language was easy for this American. I could/did sit for hours in the river-edge breakfast terrace, getting some work done (the internet service was excellent) and watching the birds. Great staff. Great management who helped me figure out all kinds of travel logistics, and made sure I was welcomed in when my bus from Sao Paulo got in a couple of hours late, at night. I'm not sure Paraty warrants more than a couple day visit, or a repeat visit, but if I DO find myself back there, I'm definitely staying at Bambu Bamboo again

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms are the better choice

My wife and I spent four days here on our honeymoon. The hosts went out of their way to give us great recommendations as far as restaurants, activities (including boat tours and horseback riding - Raul Sampaio of Passeios a Cavalo). They also hosted a cookout for the guests. Unfortunately, my wife was sick when we arrived. However, the hosts and staff went above and beyond in helping her feel comfortable, getting her a doctors appointment and checking in on her. All things considered, we had a great time and are thankful we stayed at Bambu Bamboo

We stayed in pousada Bambu Bamboo in july 2012. Very attentive staff and helpfull manager who made us feel at home and made a lot of suggestions what to do / what to see. Very nice environment. Lovely place to have breakfast. It is a 20 min walk to the old city but a very safe area. We would certainly stay their again. The place we most loved in Brazil.

Beautiful property with above average rooms but truly outstanding customer service. The pousada owners are wonderful people who work very hard to make your time in Paraty truly special. The grounds are beautiful, breakfast amazing in a picturesque setting and all the comforts of home. Truly wonderful people make this place special!
