Two times I've stayed at this charming hotel and I am definitely going to stay here the next time I visit Búzios. The hotel is located uphill from the beach João Fernandes and has a stunning view of the surrounding area. The service is excellent, the common areas are beautiful and the rooms are simple, yet very nice. The hotel... More

I stayed in this hotel in 2007, I have only just got found it again to do the review! We found it very comfortable and relaxing. Our room was beautiful with a walk in shower / bathroom. The food was also amazing.

We stayed in Buzios for 6 nights and spent the last couple of nights here. It's very comfortable and serene with lovely views and spacious rooms, great pool, hot tub, steam room and spa. It is close to Joao Fernandes beach but not to Rua Das Pedras which is where all the restaurants and shops are so you either need... More

Hotel has lots of private areas to relax in and wonderful views all around. Beach walkable and then there are water taxis options. Central town is a 18 price taxi ride. Buzios has loads of beaches to choose from and the hotel staff are very helpful. Breakfast 5 * but the rest of the food dubious but edible. Rooms spacious... More

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights at the end of our honeymoon. However, when we arrived reception told us there was a problem with the booking and we would have to stay in the sister hotel next door. We weren't very happy about this and even more so when we saw the state of the del sol... More

I totally disagree with the recent poor reviews for this hotel. They could not have been more friendly or inviting to me. This may have been due to my friend (who is Brazilian and perhaps a little demanding!) phoning ahead to let them know I'd be checking in early and warning them that I can't speak Portuguese... However, on arrival... More

Start with the positives. Fantastic views of the sea and surrounding area, good location to either walk into Centro or the local beach. Communal facilities also good and staff generally friendly although very few, if any speak communicative english. You can muddle through though and given we speak no Portuguese it's tough to criticise. Negatives: if you're offered room 1,... More

Nice spot in hilly Buzios. The room was clean, nice bali beds and sunbeds around the smaller hotel pool, with great view to the bay. Distance to city is a 10min taxi drive and to the first beach a 10min walk (but not the nicest one). Hotel is offering a small and good menu card served at the pool. For... More

I admit that when you first arrive, the property is beautiful and the view from the pool is phenomenal. My husband and I had been looking forward to our stay for months but was immediately turned off and pissed the morning before our arrival. We had booked transfers through the hotel to go from Rio to La Pedrera. Well, the... More
