I would give this a 5 star review if we had been able to stay in the front part of the hotel instead if one of the garden apartments which are set a ways back albeit still central and still comfortable. The location of the hotel is superb - lovely terrace and pool overlooking the bay of Buzios and very... More

We loved this place, amazing breakfasts, fabulous location and stunning views out to sea. We were upgraded from our little room at the back to the most amazing upstairs room looking over ocean. We didn't want to leave!!

The hotel atmosphere was very nice, some people knew some english and the food amount was very nice. The view from the pool was awesome. Our room was on the back part it was a bungalow it was nice and big but i dont think it matches the price. The wifi was a bit slow on the room but good... More

The hotel was offered based on half-board. Although we preferred breakfast only it was not possible to change, rice would be the same. The dinner offered was very simple, 3 courses. Unfortunately the hotel was under construction during our stay and the caused some negative experiences. Wifi was almost not availble although offered. The majority of the staff did not... More

Uncomfortable bed. Wifi wasn't available and there was no discount for the inconvenient. Near to Rua das Pedras, it is a good place for someone who loves night activities and commerce, anyway you could find something equivalent and cheaper. Beautiful views, but if you want to enjoy the beach this is not the place.

Location was very good, centrally located, close to Rua das Pedras. Friendly staff apart from Joelson who has no customer service skills. Rooms are expensive based on what they offer and compared to others in the area. Would not stay there again.

The best of Byblos is the staff. They were charming and incredibly helpful with us and our baby boys during our stay at La Pousada Byblos. We are really thankful with all of them (Paulinho, Aramis, Felipe, all of them!). The pousada itself is a very romantic place, the food is very good if you booked your stay with half... More

This is one of the best "posadas" in Buzios. It is located at walking distance of the center of rua das pedras shopping and also from beautiful beaches like Azeida and Brava. The personel are nice, there is a small swimming pool where you can enjoy a caipirinha prepared right there. The bad: internet broke and it took 3 days... More

The staff at the Pousada Byblos made our stay very memorable! We arrived at the hotel on a very rainy day, and although our travel agency had promised us an upgrade when we got to the hotel, no one had been advised of that. Despite of that, the staff at the Byblos gave us a room with a sea view.... More

We stayed at byblos as part of our honeymoon around Brazil (15-18th October 2011). We were a bit skeptical after having read some of the reviews here but we were delighted with the place. We received great customer service from the time we checked in to when we checked out. Joelson and the team at Byblos are realy friendly and... More
