I've just came back from a 3 days, 2 nights stay at this property attending a family wedding. It is located in a pristine, secluded beach between the cities of Buzios and Cabo Frio - so if you want to stay here, I would advise you have a car to be out and about. Hotel facilities are quite basic -... More

Location is beautiful but way far from city center. You will spend R$ 45,00 each time you want to go to or return downtown. Best to do is rent a car. Cell phone is dead. They claim to offer WIFI but thats a joke, signal is unstable and as fast as a dial up modem. Food is decent but waiter... More

Joao and the staff at the Apa Pau shattered all my preconceptions of what great service means. Their attentiveness and hospitality was unparalleled.

it was perfect for a quiet, romantic getaway à 9km the center of town (Rua das Pedras). Privative beach and beautiful swimming pool with view spectacular. Service impeccable, everyone is very friendly and they pay attention to detail. Comfortable bed and furnishings. Food was good, we liked the buffet breakfast every day. We will come back to this adorable hotel

This hotel resort has been under new management for the last 3 months and is undergoing renovation. We stayed in a house 1 minute from the semi private beach. The rooms were very modern and clean and the staff were very attentive. The restaurant has a great view and the food is fantastic. The chefs are French and they were... More
