Great location on one of best beaches in Buzios.Yes the accommodations are not luxury,small rooms,slow internet service,toilets that barely flush,but the location is ideal.The staff are friendly but do not speak well english,but the manager was very helpfull in reserving our next hotel in Rio. If I was to go back to Buzios,I would stay there again.

I returned and this time stayed for 17 days. My husband and I are working on a project near the hotel and decided to stay here again. Booked room 35 again. The staff were wonderful as always, room was great, etc. DO NOT stay at Chez Pitu if you are needing to get some work done. The hotel offers free... More

We arrived in Buzios on January 2 and were very excited to be staying on the beaches of Geriba. Our room (#16) had a beach view located on the second level with a super spacious balcony with tables and chairs. The good: Small boutique hotel. Though the receptionist didn't speak too much English, they were more than willing to help... More

Hotel is right on the beach. I stayed in room 35. There is a small veranda, which overlooks a demolished building, then beach. It was nice to be in this corner of the hotel. I brought a yoga mat and was able to use it both in the room, as well as on the veranda. Nice tv and small fridge.... More

We never stayed at the hotel but we did use the beach services and restaurant. On the quietest day on the beach, they charged us $20R for the chairs after we used their food and dining services. (No other hotel service on beach does this from our experience). We paid it, but think others should be warned.

This hotel is simple but has everything you need on the beach. The beach atmosphere is all over the place. The best part was the most beautiful beach in Buzios. The staff is nice but they are very informal. They have beach service which is good and a pool bar where you can have drinks and relax. The point is... More

A simple provincial informal beach hotel. It gives the best of Brazil service. Price is good for Brazil. Style is that of a B&B (Pousada). Yes the service can be a little intermittent but is well balanced by the 'family' response. Buzios is a relaxed atmopsphere, which the hotel reflects. A great place to unwind - or as a base/refuge...

This hotel was wonderful ! Located on the best part of beach away from the wind and very relaxing. The only downer to this place is very quite at night and a ten minute taxi ride to the centre. The poolside service could be better but there are also many other wonderfull places to eat within a stones throw of... More

The rates are higher than most Pousadas but beach-front and nice staff provides a lot of conveniences for one staying in Geribá. Very simple and clean rooms are made for resting, the place to stay is outside. It is located in the smaller wave area, better for kids. OBS: I've been here many times. The thing about visiting Búzios is... More
