it was quite an experience to sit at the chef's table and observe Steve and Francisco prepare your meal first hand. I had the filet mignon which melted in my mouth like butter. I can never have another steak in Toronto as a result. The ceviche was perfect it was served with warm chips that were lightly salted to help... More

Just finished a 5 night stay at the hotel and have nothing bad to say. The staff was always helpful, especially the front desk. Each evening they got us a nice taxi for our trip into the town center for dinner. Every restaurant recommendation they made was a winner. Breakfast was good with lots of variety.

The staff is outstanding, really helpful at all times. Very clean rooms and nicely decorated. Pool area is nice and the restaurant has a good menu and they will cook anything special you might ask. Gym was poor but acceptable. It's Well located too. Will definitely come back.

This property is comfortable, well located - but is no means luxurious - it is functional at best. Having said that, that doesn't mean it is bad! Not quite USA or UK standards - thats all. The service was the best part - the team was so friendly, and did everything to make us feel comfortable. Breakfast was decent, the... More

Just a note - if you're used to a 4 star US hotel you'll think this is a little less than that...probably a 3 star in the US BUT nonetheless very nice. Good price for a fantastic location in Buzios where all hotels seems to be quite expensive in general. The beach is only a one minute walk away. They... More

Had a great room with a beautiful view. (And a hot tub!) Great place to relax after travelling in South America. Excellent location, friendly staff (with a particularly friendly guy who spoke excellent English) and a fernicular like lift that was great fun to use! Thanks for a very pleasant stay!
