Resort Croce del Sud
Ranked #7 of 28 Hotels in Paraty
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 November 2012

A fantastic apartment, in an oasis of tranquility with panoramic views over the Paraty bay, was the perfect place to unwind for our family after visiting Rio. Luca, the owner, was kind enough to pick us up from the main road since our transfer van from Paraty tours couldn't go up the steep hill to the front of the resort. The breakfast, served in a big basket was even more impressive, with homemade breads, jams, juice, and assorted fruits grown on the verdant
hillside. There is also a kitchen with all the utensils, refrigerator and microwave. Eating breakfast on the veranda, with the stunning views will stay in our memories for a long long time.

A short walk down the hill from the resort will bring you to the bus stop from which you can take the bus into town. The last bus from Paraty is at 10:30 PM but we always took the taxi back to the resort. Trinidade, with its pristine beaches, where you have to go through a short hike through the jungle to go between beaches is highly recommended and so is a schooner tour of the paraty bay.

We had a fantastic time in this resort, thanks to the tranquility of the place and the amazing view over the bay and Ila Grande.
The house is spotless clean, tastefully decorated and furnished, perfectly matching with the idyllic view and the surrounding nature.
The hospitality provided by the owner Luca and family is excellent as well as the fresh made breakfasts that we had on the balcony while watching hummingbirds feeding on the flowers in the garden...

The view is great, the breakfast is excellent (everyday different but always with homemade products!) and the accommodation is really good. Peacefull place and unforgetable holidays! t is necessary to have a car because it is about 10km from the historical center.

The resort is composed of only 3 rustic chalets with astounding view on the seaside. Luca, the owner, provides excellent home-made breakfasts every morning. The place is very zen, relaxing, and deep into the nature. We look forward to come back.

This place was truly unique and very beautiful. It's fairly remote to Paraty city so you need a car (taxi is 40 Reais) but if you're looking for tranquility you'll really appreciate this place. There are three chateaus, all with spectacular views of the bay. The chateaus or simple but charming. The breakfast has a lot of options with homemade breads and some locally-sourced cheeses and meats. If you're going in and out of Paraty I would not recommend this place. We only had one night which wasn't even to really enjoy everything the place has to offer.

Luca (the owner) offers a wonderful place with everything as promised in his website (and more). The flats are located on the side of the hill which provides a beautiful view of Paraty Bay. Luca promised breakfast in the morning delivered in our flat and it was but rather the night before so as you are not disturbed in the morning. So when we woke up, we simply went downstairs and breakfast was ready with several types of breads and fruits (even a juicer to make fresh orange juice in he morning) as well as milk, cheese and eggs. I was there with my wife and three children and it was moer than we could even eat.

The tables has children's placemats and children's dishes which my wife thought was a great touch and they even had a crib for us as well.

Every day there is a cleaning service that does a wonderful job of making sure your place looks great when you return from the day. There was plenty of room in the top and bottom floor so that my children could walk around and not be so cramped like when you are in a hotel.

At night it is great to watch the storms on the bay or if it is clear...the lights from the boats on te water.

Each morning, Luca was available for anything you needed and was attentive to any requests we had.

My wife and I will surely be back the next time we come to Brazil. Thanks to Luca for the wonderful stay and great service!!

I stayed with my family (7 people) at Resort Croce del Sud. The owner Luca, an Italian immigrant to Brazil, is a wonderful person, speaks good English and is extremely helpful. He will take care of you like you are his family.

The rooms are very well kept with a fabulous view of the bay. His maid also keeps the place very well clean. The landscape of Luca's property is fabulous.

For breakfast, you can expect fresh fruits, juice, homemade bread, butter, cookies...the list goes on.

Luca's house is near by and is always there to service/assist you. He is also nice enough to acquaint you with the town of Paratay. Will tell you, things you can do, money you should pay for those services, etc.

We had an extremely fabulous stay, thanks to Luca. I would recommend this place to anyone, in a heartbeat.
