I really enjoyed my stay at this pousada. My room with 3 single beds was spacious, clean and had everything I needed. The bathroom was huge which always is a nice surprise. It´s not so close to Rua das Pedras (10-15 min walk) but it's close to most beaches like Azeda/Azedinha. You won't need a car at all. Just walk... More

This is a great little pousada. it's right on the road, almost on Amacao beach. The rooms are so pretty ans quirky and impeccably clean. There are lots of peaceful little alcoves where you can sit and read, or chat and admire the ornaments. There is a small pool, which always seemed to be empty. Nice for a quick dip,... More

My family and I have been fortunate to stay at 5-star hotels and resorts worldwide. There are some destinations that just don't have the popular chain hotels and you need to make do with a local boutique. First, we love Buzios! It's got a certain vibe a la a Mediterranean beach village, but low key. Few Americans make us feel... More

Very pleasant stay in La Chimere. Very nice building complex, nice rooms, very good breakfast and friendly staff. Very well located, only a few minutes walk to Praia do Ossos, Azeda e João Fernandes and the famous Rua das Pedras. Would definitely stay there again.

First of all, the staff was very good, helping us for anything we need regarding our baby, questions about the town, and general requests. They speak portuguese, of course, and some spanish, I can´t say anything about english because I spoke with them in portuguese. The pousada itself is very nice, modern, bright rooms with small fridge and lcd tv.... More

Stayed here for our honeymoon. There were few other guests so we had the place to ourselves. Great service and convenient location! Very good breakfast buffet and nice rooms! Loved having a refrigerator in room and room service available too. Good price- only drawback is no beach view or private balcony/patio.

The room we had was very big and clean, even we had a very big TV to watch a few cable channels by night. The breakfast was also great, an the location is fabulous. Thanks to... More

We had a wonderful experience at the pousada over New Years. Small, charming with an excellent staff. Walking distance to the beach and the nightlife. We made the short drive to some other beaches nearby. Would definitely go back.
