We stayed at the hotel for three nights in the master suite room. The hotel is located 10 minutes walk to rua de pedras and 15 minutes walk to azeda beach and ossas beach. The room was very big with a sofa, tv, tea coffee making facilities but no tea bags or coffee sachets were provided in the room. The... More

Nice relaxing escape from the hustle and bustle of Rio. Flawless service from reception to luggage handling to room care. Staff facilitated buggy rental and provided excellent information on beaches and attractions. They even looked after the transfer back to Rio. Easy walk to the town center and the nearest beach. Would definitely stay here again.m

This hotel is very quiet surrounded by a tropical vegetation. It is near the centre of buzios, just 10 minutes walking. The room was very confortable with excellent views. The staff was excellent. I would highly recommend it.

We stayed here for 5 nights in November. We were looking for a comfortable, quiet and relaxing break and Porto Bay was ideal. The apartment we had was spacious, comfortable and well equipped, with a beautiful view. Staff and service were excellent and breakfast by the pool each morning was a great way to start the day. Easy walk to... More

Stayed here two days after staying a couple of days at another property in Buzios. This one was excellent. Great rooms, beautiful views. An easy walk into town. The layout was great. I'd highly recommend this property to anyone.

Stayed in this charming hotel for 10 days in November. We had the basic room which was well equipped and modern but lacking any decor (pictures on wall) to make it more homely. They provided a kettle but no tea/coffee facilities so we had to buy some mugs etc. The reception rooms upstairs are lovely and airy with great views... More

The service was excellent! Friendly receptionist and very helpful. The room was large and had a great view. The breakfast was nice and served by the pool made it charming. Room service was fast and the food we had for dinner was well served and plenty. I would go certainly back to stay in the hotel next time I visit... More

This hotel for me fell short of the mark and what was expected. The staff were lovely, the breakfast good with fresh juices and continental buffet but the lack of any bar or restaurant services is in my opinion it's major flaw. We stayed at the pool one day and there is no drinks service available while enjoying a day... More

What a great place to stay. Centrally located all the main areas are within easy walking distance yet you escape the noise of all the main drags. Fabulous views, especially from the lobby and a great poolside breakfast in the mornings. The rooms are large with free Wifi and there are a gym and sauna in the gardens. Special thanks... More

Stayed for 8 nights in September 2014. Very pleasantly surprised on arrival and the decor of the hotel. Lovely reception areas with polite and helpful reception staff. Well furnished large spacious rooms. Had no issues with hot water as some reviewers have mentioned below. Upon arrival we had no European adaptors and safe wouldn't open so we phoned reception.
