We read the positive reviews on trip advisor and expected a beautiful boutique hotel. The first thing to note is that this hotel is several miles from buzios and not in a great part of town. The hotel felt very old and worn. The whole place smelt damp and you could see the smell was coming from the moldy roof... More

The hotel is simply beautiful. Though it's not the Trump Tower, this hotel provides you with all you need for a relaxing getaway or vacation. Located near the ocean the sound of the waves is relaxing. Brazilian breakfast is enough and tasty. Rooms are clean and tidy and the staff so very helpful. Since this is not right in the... More

My husband and I spent a few nights here after traveling around Brazil (mainly big cities like Sao Paulo & Rio de Janiero) and for the most part enjoyed our stay. We wanted a few days of relaxation before heading back to the U.S. The hotel itself was quiet with just a little bit of charm. Rooms are small but... More

This was the 3rd hotel we stayed in in Buzios. This was part of a multi-city tour of Brazil including Sao Paolo and Rio. If you are looking for action, you want to be downtown. We found downtown to be too loud for us, esp on weekends. If you are looking for peace and quiet, great service, excellent food and... More

We booked this hotel after reading the good reviews on Tripadvisor early last-year; but since then, the reviews have been rather discouraging and I can see why. This hotel has potential; the location is good (watching sunset from our balcony each night was spectacular) and a short 5 minute walk leads you to a delicious array of restaurants. The hotel...

We heard we had to come to Brazil for Carnaval so we spent a week in Bahia, and then a week in Buzios - for Carnaval. Both are terrific resort locations on the ocean. We found some very unspoiled beaches in both towns with great food and hospitality from the Brazilian people! Weather was perfect, sunny & hot every day.... More

On first impressions the Martin Pescador seems like a very relaxing hotel. The staff, even though they spoke very little English were very welcoming to my wife, son and I. But when we looked around the hotel we realised that the hotel didn't match up to the amazing pictures and description on the website. Having a 13month year old and... More

We found the staff very helpful and friendly. The rooms were not luxury but very nice and clean. The location is peaceful with great ocean views. It is not so close to town so better to have your own car, we had a great stay and would recommend the hotel.

Location is okay but not fantastic compared to some of the other nearby pousadas leading directly onto the beaches. The beach directly in front of hotel is just okay. Taxi service poor, slow and bit of a rip off in context of what you pay in Rio. Breakfast poor quality buffet with flies crawling over cooked meats etc. Staff are... More
