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...

We had booked an eight night stay at Serena, not knowing much about the hotel or Buzios. The tablet branding was the decisive factor. This was a big mistake. First, the hotel is situated about 20 mins from Buzios town centre where all the shops and restaurants are located. the closest beach is just 2 mins walk away but nothing... More

My husband and i stayed in this hotel from the 28th of december to the 30th. It has a good location 2 minutes walk from Geriba beach. The people are friendly and open to help. The breakfast is varied and the garden is nice and well kept. The pool is very small but given the proximity to the beach it... More

This is most definitely not a boutique hotel, it is a small family resort. 95% of the guests have children 5 years and younger. This did not bother us at all, is was, after all, a holiday resort We booked a standard room, the smallest hotel room I have ever stayed in, ever. There is a 1 metre space around... More

Great resort in Búzios, just a few minutes away from the beach. Stayed there off season which is why I got a great deal. I was on a business trip and only had time for breakfast and a quick run on the beach in the morning, if I'd had time I would have stayed for a few more days to... More

When you check in, they welcome you with a delicious seasonal fruit juice. This is a high quality establishment with an attentive staff. They serve a tasty Brazilian breakfast buffet with a variety of fruits and hot dishes. At the beach there are umbrellas, lounge chairs and towels for your convenience. They also offer transportation to other beaches, as well... More
