We absolutely adored this pousada. It was by far the best place we (two young couples on vacation for the World Cup) stayed in Brazil. The pool and breakfast area are like a private tropical sanctuary; I could have stayed there all day, every day. The rooms were clean and contemporary and Johnny at the front desk answered every little... More

We booked using a special offer in low season and we were pleasantly surprised. The hotel has a nice view although isn't on the water and is about 10 minutes walk from the town. The rooms (we had a junior and king suite) are big, clean and comfortable. The pool area is very nice and is a pleasant place to... More

Stayed at Porto Bay for a few nights before heading to Rio. Staff was very friendly and helpful, and rooms were very up to date and clean modern looking. Short walk to 3 or 4 beaches and short 10 to 15 min walk to the Centro (the square with all the shops and restaurants). Great breakfast with very nice staff... More

The location of the hotel is great, a 5 minute walk from the town centre but far away enough to not feel the hustle and bustle of Buzios. The hotel grounds are absolutely magnificent with little plaques indicating the extensive variety of plants, trees and flowers. This makes the pool a calm and tranquil oasis and a great place to...

Stayed here for 3 nights with my husband. Alex at the front desk was always helpful and friendly. Location very convenient to rua das pedras. Nice size suite, comfy bed. The room could use a little updating, and mosquitoes often got into the room, but overall it was a nice place and an enjoyable visit!

We chose the Porto Bay Buzios based on trip advisor reviews, and it worked.
