We stayed here for a week at the beginning of February 2014. The hotel is beautifully situated, surrounded by palm trees and thick vegetation, very tropical! The staff are delightful and very attentive, especially Tomas, Alex and Alexander who went out of their way each day to make sure we were enjoying ourselves. Lots of small touches which were noticed... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel from February 21 st till 28 th 2014. The hotel is very nice, quiet, relaxing and apart from the busiest town center. Still, it is central and walking distance from rua das pedras, orla bardot and praia brava. The room (suite master) was large and very confortable, with a large bed, good... More

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. The hotel is quiet, with a wonderful tropical garden, comfortable rooms, nice pool and very good service for a friendly and helpful staff. I recommend it specially for couples and people who wants to rest and it's not crazy for being just right at the beach.... More

Very good breakfast and pool area. No restaurant at the site, but lighter snacks and sandwiches were very good and we also ordered pizza one evening which worked out fine. Location will mean a 15 minute walk to the beach and about the same to the city center. We found it to be a good location but unless you are... More

The Hotel is great, well decorated and with a very helpful and friendly staff. The breakfast by the pool is very good, and the rooms big and comfortable! Be prepared for the mosquitos but that is just part of being in a tropical country! I recommend for everyone who wants to know Buzios!

I tried different pousadas in South America and Porto Bay Buzios was definitely the best one. Lovely big rooms with outdoor space, attention to detail in all common spaces, superb breakfast and friendly staff. You can walk to a couple of beaches and to the center of Buzios or reach the other beaches within 10 minutes with a taxi.
