Loved the staff and the place itself but so disappointed by the owner. The place is worn and funky but quaint too. Typical third world charm. Our balcony table top was off center and it tipped over when one of us lightly brushed it. The top broke and we were lucky no one was hurt. The owner demanded we buy... More

We really loved staying here because of the staff and location. Ivete and Carmen were so very helpful and gave us an early breakfast the day we were leaving, so that we could catch the 9.00 a.m. bus back to Rio.Taxis can come right to the door although it is a pedestrian street. We arrived very tired after a seven... More

We loved our few nights at Pousada do Sol and staying in Brigitte Bardot's suite (8) - it is utterly charming but this place is not for everyone so listen up: it all depends what you are looking for. If you want a beach shack turned Pousada in the center if Rua das Pedras that feels authentic and is right... More

For our first time trip to Búzios we stayed in “Pousada do sol” for a weekend (2 nights) beginning of January. The pousada is located in the pedestrian area of Buzios (“rua das pedras”), which is the street right behind the houses facing the fishermen`s port and it is usually closed for car traffic. Nevertheless we were able to convince... More

Really lovely staff (Vinny and Maria were particularly helpful and extremely friendly!). In an country where English is seldom spoken it was great to be able to have our queries answered and be understood. They also arranged transfers to Rio upon leaving, saving us a trip to the Riodiavaria (sp) Bus Station which was a little dodgy! The location is... More

Buzios is the most beautiful place to visit--3 hours by bus transfer from your hotel in RIO costing Real 70 each way. One of the most important things about Buzios is where to stay. On reading the reviews of other guests i made a reservation at Pousada do SOL. What a mistake. We had their no 1 room with balcony... More

If you enjoy beach access, ocean views in the center of all the action and steps away to serenity and tranquility ( casa brand as just around the corner) this is the most valuable place in Buzios! It's owned by a woman(which Kimberly loves) the head Chef Sonya, and boy does she offer excellent options and fantastic libations. This is... More

You will see a lot a tributes to Bridget Bardot in Buzious. In the 1960's she had a Brazilian boyfriend and Buzious was then a simple fishing village. They stayed right here, at Pousada do Sol - room 8 in fact. I found this all out as they checked me in to.....room 8 ...her name is on the door! Location... More

This place was really cute - only a couple rooms, and I recommend splurging on the water view room with the balcony (it was only $125 a night). The view was gorgeous and the staff was super friendly. It's got an excellent location if you like to go partying at night. The food at Cigalon was delicious and was the... More
