Having toured around Brazil we were looking for a relaxing few days before returning home. We arrived very late but had a efficient check in and were shown around. The hotel is beautifully located overlooking the bay. It is not in town but this is a plus as there is a beach on your door step and it is a... More

I have been to this hotel for the first time and I can tell you that was the most fantastic experience in my life. The room was excellent! All cleaned, extremely comfortable. The crew is helpful, everything I needed, they worked hard to attend. The pool bar has a lot of options including cocktails, beers and non alcoholic drinks. The... More

We came for 3 days taking a break from our Time in Rio. I felt bad for every dollar I spent! We had to wait to check in, even though I suspect they didn't have more than 10 guests staying at the hotel at the time. The room had ants as they has left some sweets as a kind gesture.... More

Ms. Sinem Kaynak, We are deeply sorry about read your review, it is sad to see how unhappy you were at Insólito, we always try to provide a good service. Yes, we are far from city center, not that far, still, good enough to not have noise and many people disturbing our guests. We provide what luxury is all about,... More

The hotel is not nearly as bad as described by some reviewers nor is it the best hotel in Brazil as enthusiastically claimed by another one. It is a very nice place with some flaws. On the not so good side, it is true that the hotel, or at least certain areas, would need to be refreshed. Some of the... More

Perfect place for a relaxing and comfortable stay. Staff was outstanding and very friendly. The hotel is excellent and easy access to the beach. Would recommend highly. Breakfast was an amazing spread and made to order items. Easy cab ride to Buzios center.

First the transport from the airport to the Hotel: A staff was there on time with an executive car and his service was incredible. The check in was friendly and easy and we were offered a nice drink and from the reception we can see the most beautiful view in the whole hotel. The room is tastefully decorated and fully... More

Be very careful to committing to this hotel, it is over priced, and most definitely no where close to five star. It's a prime example of one those hotels which looks fabulous on the website but in reality is far from it. I never write on trip advisor but on this occasion I feel and hope a review will prevent...

If you think by paying big bucks you get high quality then think again. Whilst it looks nice on the surface the rooms are poor, old furnishings, old curtains, badly maintained. The shared areas are scruffy old furnishings, tatty pillows etc old style jacuzzis and no investment anywhere to justify the rack rates being charged. We moved rooms twice as... More
