The place is really gorgeous, everything is clean, nice and hi-quality. Staff is friendly, although they speak few english. Hotel is situated in the way that you get all the sun in the open space during the day and you need not to leave the place. Atmosphere is very relaxing and soft. They serve home made pizzas, have place for barbecues and etc.
The location of the hotel is quite far from the beach, although the beach of Paraty is not very good and hotel's pool and internal facilities way better than beach, so we even didn't go there.
With a stay at Pousada L'essence in Paraty (Pantanal), you'll be within a 15-minute drive of Jabaquara Beach and Mini Estrada Real Museum. Featured amenities include a 24-hour front desk and a safe deposit box at the front desk. Free self parking is available onsite.
