After 3 weeks of intensive site seeing and touring in south America this was a wonderfully peaceful, stylish and relaxed way to end a busy holiday. The individual, rusticially furnished cabanas provide comfortable ensuite accomodation. Each cabana has its own balcony with views of the gardens planted with exotic plants and sea views as well as stunning sunsets. There is... More

Our stay in Buzios was the last leg of a Rio/Iguacu trip. After a very long transfer fro Rio due to an accident on the bridge we were very glad to see the signs for Buzios. We were welcomed at reception by the most amazing guy (sorry we were so tired we cant member your name!) We were warmly and... More

I re-visited Pousada Hibiscus Beach for my eighth stay for two weeks in early July, primarily to enjoy the World Cup. Taking an arduous long-way round 28-hours in total flight, Durban-Dubai-Rio de Janeiro, I finally arrived at the pousada late in the evening completely exhausted. Imagine my pleasant surprise when a "Welcome Home" note from the proprietors, Kevan and Alicia... More

The staffs are great especially Nithin and Celia, they did there best to make our trip worth every penny :) Probably end of this... More

The worst hotel I have every visited. Arrived late at night with family and were not met at reception by personel. Took us 30 minute to explain to a guard lying on the sofa and watching tv to show us the rooms. Got two boungalos far from each other though prebooked two together. Furniture old, condition of the rooms very... More

brazilianbasher, Owner at Pousada Hibiscus Beach, responded to this review

We remember these guests very well, a Russian family who stayed at our hotel in January 2013, (not January 2014). They arrived late on a rainy night, and the night watchman escorted them to their rooms. The following morning, our receptionist was dismayed to hear from the reviewer´s mother that she was unhappy that the only person to greet them... More

Been there with my family and friends during June 2014. The resort is neatly maintained and got good quality rooms, friendly employees and closer to the beach. Great place for staying. Internet and breakfast are good.

With the understanding that Value/money ratio in Brazil is possibly the worst in the western hemisphere, this place offers a great view and spacious rooms with good landscaping. I gave it an overall three stars but within the Brazil lenses I would say a 4 out of 5. Items to improve: 1) More than five minutes of hot water so... More

What is unique about Pousada Hibiscus Beach are the "rooms" are all independent little bungalows with private balconies and a decent view of the sea. The staff were very helpful and most all spoke English. The included breakfast was typical Brazilian fare, was fresh every morning and the coffee was great. Buzios is a great get-away from the insanity that... More
