Excellent views in the room and common areas. The hotel is very quiet and surrounded by trees. It is at a walking distance from Geriba beach making it possible to enjoy the hotel and the beach at the same day. The common areas are filled with places where you can lay down and relax. I also recommend the honeymoon special.

I liked many things about the AquaBarra Hotel and one of them, is the beautiful and quiet location on a hill surrounded by trees while being relatively close to the beach. The rooms are large and comfortable, decorated in the style of the building. Each room is different and has it charm something I really like because it's much more... More

I would have preferred to write a 4 or a 4 1/2 star review, just to save the words excellent, sublime, insuperable, 5 stars! for those prestigious, Relais and Chateaux type of accommodations. But frankly, I couldn't find one single reason to deduct a half a star from my rating. The owners, their assistants, the view from our room, the... More

We are a 30 something American couple who just returned from an 8 day vacation to Rio. We spent 2 nights at this hotel but wish had spent all 8. First of all- Buzios is such a nice place. I do not recommend you spend more than 2-3 days in Rio de Janeiro if you are looking for a beach... More

I stayed in this wonderful hotel for a week on vacation in Buzios and it was truly amazing. It offers the same great services all hotels offer but the best part is that it makes you feel at home. It has a lot of places around the hotel that make you feel relaxed and as if it were your home.... More

Just arrived from my 3 nights stay with my girlfriend at Aquabarra Boutique Hotel & Spa. Overall it's a great place to stay while visiting Buzios for leisure.

A friend and I came here in January for two nights and found this place to be very mediocre. We booked a King size room with a balcony view and ended up getting put in a room with a noisy AC unit. They graciously moved us to a lower unit which we had no problem with but did not compensate... More

We returned to Aquabarra this April with my Brother in law and Nephew and had the same excellent service, lovely clean and bright rooms and a terrific time during our stay. Perfectly located in Buzios, Geriba remains my favourite of all the beaches and my Brother in law managed to get some surf too, which was a bonus. The breakfast... More

I came to enjoy Buzios with a friend and found that hotel we booked turned out nothing like the reviews or the photos of it indicated. Luckily, we were recommended Aquabarra, and this was a perfect fit. The owners are a fun, worldly couple who run this boutique hotel like a home, and one receives not only personalised attention, but... More
