The Eliconial is a series of bungalows plus a pool area and a semi-open lounge where they serve breakfast. The bungalows are functional rather than luxurious, but they have everything you need including a fridge and AC. The whole place has a nicely chilled atmosphere, added to by the bird-life and the owners’ collection of cats. The owners are very...

Having worked the whole week across Brazil I wanted somewhere to rest and chill with good food on the weekend before I travelled home on Sunday night. I found this place through good reviews on Trip. It was all the things people have said and more. The owners organised my pick up from Sao Paulo at a reasonable price and...

Beautiful small hotel opposite beach. Bungalows were perfect with excellent facilities and hidden away among the tropical plants and trees with a hammock on the porch. Owners and managers were fantastic - always having time to chat, knowing all the guests names and providing loads of good information about attractions and things to do. Shame it rained most of the...

After the Paralympics and some very busy days in Rio we were looking for a cosy place near Paraty. Obviously, we found it. The place is really idyllic and the hosts gave us a very warm welcome. Thanks again for having us and make our stay a special one.

We just returned from a five day stay at Eliconial and totally enjoyed our time there. As everyone else has said the hosts and all other staff were more than wonderful from the time we arrived until we left. We enjoyed their company, and the company of the cats, very much. I love the location, it is a little removed...

We were looking for a tranquil spot to relax and recharge and Eliconial delivered 100%. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable. The gardens and swimming pool were idyllic and the perfect background for some serious r&r. Ricardo and Yvan were the perfect hosts: so warm, welcoming and helpful. A pleasure to be around. Breakfast gets a special mention. An impressive...

Stunning "boutique hotel". A little piece of paradise with tropical lush vegetation surrounding the cosy bungalows. It is like a little paradise in a bubble, with friendly little monkeys jumping above, snoozy gorgeous cats and happy chirping birds making this a perfect holiday spot. And to top it all, multilingual and extremely friendly staff with great knowledge of Paraty and...

We were at Eliconial for a short break and had a relaxing and comfortable staying. Eliconial is quite small, which for us is a bonus, so there is not many people messing around. The pool is nice and big enough to swim. The breakfast is very good, we had freshly made pancakes, which my sons enjoyed. Eliconial is located in...

The Eliconial presents an excellent breakfast, lovely grounds, and a diverse, friendly and soothing cohort of animal friends. Swimming pool and spa are inviting and sparkling clean. Accommodations are very well designed and comfortable. The property is private, quiet, accented with the song of birds.. Beach, walking trails and quality restaurants are a half block away. Historic Center is an...
