Stayed here for 6 nights in march 2015 as a couple. Had booked Royal Suite online, however upon arrival we only got Master suite as they were overbooked. Not the best start. Ups: Nice breakfast by the pool. (Use insect repellent - lots of bugs/mosquitoes) Pool seize was good for swimming. Lobby area very nice and comfortable. Spacious rooms with... More

Porto Bay in Buzios is a pleasant boutique hotel. Most aspects of the hotel are really good - the friendliness of the staff, the excellent location, a good (if not extensive) breakfast served by the pool. The rooms are good with good sized walk in showers that are hot and powerful. This hotel could be exceptional but is let down... More

A beautiful boutique hotel with very friendly staff. On arrival we were lucky enough to get a room upgrade. We had a very relaxing time staying here and the only thing that remotely spoilt our stay was the mosquitoes who seemed to really like us. Alexander and his colleagues were very helpful during our stay.

Location, facilities, breakfast, cleanliness, pool, views were all brilliant. Good value for money. Only slight disappointment was the bar and snacks being closed for the majority big our stay. Only 10 minute walk to the centre of buzios.

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
