Hotel management extremely poor in responding to issues which affected our stay. It tainted an otherwise very good holiday and we have been left disappointed by the experience. Hotel staff were very good!

Very nice position and structure; service to be improved. We've been waiting too much time for lunch, no results despite our countinuous claims: such a service is not acceptable for a structure belonging to such a category like its, not exactly cheap. Sometimes you could perceive a little disorganization in the staff, I'm confident anyway.

The Insolito Boutique Hotel is located at the left corner of Ferradura, in the seaside resort of Buzios, just 1:30 from Rio by car (or substantially less if you fly). The Hotel has a paradisiac location, the view is extraordinary, the facilities are outstanding and the service is very good. I have travelled extensively in Brazil and in the world... More

Hotel is beautiful, location is good once you arrive, because the condition of the road is terrible, try and rent a SUV if you can. The booking system is confusing and needs to be managed carefouly. Treat your guest better

My wife and I spent six nights at the Insolito in mid December. The road outside was being dug up, which is hardly the hotel's fault, and will lead to considerable improvements once completed, I suspect. The hotel overlooks a magnificent horse shoe shaped beach, which was remarkably quiet considering its beauty, which clearly just added to our pleasure. Various... More

Unhappily as Brazilian, Insolito could be one of the most iconic beach boutique resorts of my country. I write unhappily because they have a great structure on the beach with very beautiful views. But when someone says that services on a hotel matters and sometimes we don't value that so much, Insolito will remember you in a bad way how... More

First impressions weren't good. The road/beach outside are being dug up and there's a lot of noise and dirt - it'll be nice when it's finished. The first room we were shown was small and with a very poor view but we complained and were upgraded. Second room had a much better view but was rather dated and like much... More

Where should I start. Billed as an exclusive 5 star boutique hotel the reality is different. It sits at the end of a noisy,busy beach and currently in the midst of a building site. The property is interesting but standards of maintenance and cleanliness are unsatisfactory eg beach side toilets. Service standards from well intended staff are poor which can... More

5 days at Insolito with friends and family. 35 people of all ages to please and entertain. And it was unforgettable. Insolito did everything to make our time special. From early breakfast with toddlers to improvised Moon party, it was perfect. Thank you to the whole team, especially Fabiano and his incredible commitment. We hope your thumb got better!
