Geriba beach in our opinion is the best beach in Buzios. We hired a buggy (from the hotel R$80) and visited several other popular beaches one day and we were glad we chose to stay at Serena due to its close proximity to Geriba beach. Beyond its location, the hotel offers a free shuttle ride into the downtown/centro area of... More

This was by far the best hotel we stayed during a one month trip in Brazil. Staff is amazing, speaks fluently English and Spanish (something rate in Brazil) and everything runs very smoothly. The rooms are very beautiful (we had the suite) with one only negative which is the small size of the bathroom. The variety and quality of breakfast... More

Clean, great location, excellent staff ... will come back soon ... When using the navigation (nokia maps) Serena street, Rua Campo de Pouso 1630 was not recognized ... we have used Avenida Geriba street as destination...

This place has to be one of the nicest places I've staying in for the value. It's outstanding. Food and service is second to none and you 5 mins walk from the beach. I strongly recommend anyone stay here. You won't regret it.

Rooms 603 + 803 terribly dirty - cockroaches visiting in 803. Management not at all friendly or helpful. Nice breakfast but dinner tasteless. Internet not working in rooms, neither did hotel telephone or fitness machines. Food plates left out day and night. - not worth the price all in all. Not to be recommended.

Comfortable, clean and convenient to the Geriba beach. Quiet with good meals both for breakfast and dinner. Hotel shuttle to Buzios well run and quite convenient; certainly better than driving and searching for parking. Staff attentive and helpful.

Loved it! A real oasis. Friendly and helpful staff, good atmosphere. Quiet local beach with good beach service. Unexpected free foot massage and free surf lesson. Air conditioning was quieter once we found the 'sleep mode' button!

We stayed at Serena during January 2014. There are a lot of good things at Serena: Employees: From front desk, bar to restaurant. Special thanks to Rocio at front desk and Diana (excellent animadora - probably one of the best I have found since we live here in Brazil) Common areas: hotel is not big but even being fully booked...

We stayed from the 23 - 30th December and whilst we now have fond memories of the hotel and the staff, we did have some concerns. On the plus side: - The breakfasts were excellent, the buffets over the holiday were really good and excellent value. - The staff were very friendly, helpful and impressive. - Geriba beach was 2...
