I was just there for the second time in 2 years and had an amazing experience both times. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The staff will assist you with whatever bookings you need, be it a boat ride, snorkeling, scuba diving, etc. Always warm and always with a smile. The location is incredible.

Luxury hotel options are limited in Buzios so it was difficult to make a decision on where to stay. Unfortunately I made the wrong choice with Rio Buzios. Getting to Buzios from Rio was quite a long trip, over 3 hours by private transfer. First impressions of the hotel were underwhelming to say the least, very basic lobby area with... More

We ended up staying here following a transfer from a very disappointing time at another establishment in Buzios. It became evident pretty quick that English was not in abundance with staff, however this added to a fantastic time and my basic Spanish was enough to enjoy the company of the staff. To that end all was not lost as Nicholas... More

We stayed her during the world cup and we had a great time. Hotel in ideal position, the beach across the road and a 15 min stroll into the centre of town.

We planned to stay in this hotel 4 nights and we paid in advance for the full stay (4 nights with breakfast). Service was awful and breakfast was not served (staff could not be bothered to serve it as we were the only guests in the hotel). Gym included 5 machines but 4 of them had a sign 'broken' on...

We would like to tell you that, since May 29th, we have requested the credit card company (CIELO) for the refund. But, due to Brazilian bureaucracy, it is taking a little more to be accomplished.

Look at my previous reviews and you'll see that I've stayed at places such as; Bellagio to Millennium Hilton to the Sir Francis Drake. Most hotels in Brazil are not to American Standards, but this one was the best we found! The customer service was excellent, hosts and attendants who speak well English. The room is not a Ritz Carlton,... More

I've just returned from a 5-days stay at this hotel, my husband and I were there on a second honeymoon. Buzios is our favorite getaway spot, so we go there twice a year, and going that often, we have never repeated a hotel, so we have stayed at almost every higher scale hotels available in Buzios.
