“Great place to be with kids as well”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

Amazing place to be on the Brazilian Coast. The location: you could not ask better. Fantastic beach with incredible water.
I would say that the staff is very helpful. Food is great and although all over the town is very good as well.
People are very friendly. We did not use that much pool and spa because the ocean was what we wanted.
Highly recommended for family with kids. Mine had a blast.

Room Tip: Ocean views are the best.

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 have a nice pool and very good breakfast. Town is only about a 10-15 minute walk but you can easily have the hotel call a taxi for you. Would absolutely stay here again.

We stayed for a friend birthday, so we had a lot of fun ! We got a great service, nice food and we felt welcomed. Pool is a warm spot so it wasnt a problem during rainy times. The elevator is a special charm and room service is ok. Close to beach and to the downtown. It was a great experience !

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!

Room Tip: Ask for one with a hot tub, a balcony with a sea view.

We stayed at this hotel following a tour of South America and it was just perfect for rest and relaxation. The hotel is well located within easy walking distance downhill to beach. There are restaurants near the hotel and the town of Buzios is about 20 minute walk along the coast where there is a good choice of places to eat.The rooms are spacious, clean and fresh looking with a large balcony. We had an issue with our coach back to Rio and as neither of us speak Brazilian we were really struggling to make the coach operator understand, the reception staff came to our rescue and were amazing sorting out the problem. We went in May a quiet time I think it is very different in high season.

It was very strange to me and my family to visit Rio de Janeiro in January this year and to have many hot days in the middle of the winter! We had pre-booked reservation at the Rio Buzios Beach Hotel and were welcomed in a large room, which came very clean and with enormous bed and a great terrace. We had nice views to the ocean, but I liked most the location. The hotel is neighboring one beach and is placed only short walk from another! I used to swim a lot and enjoy myself! We also had a shuttle bus we did not paid for, which we used to go to the center of the city at evening where we ate. The breakfast we had in the hotel was very tasty and there was a variety. The internet was good, I used it a lot and I didn’t pay for it. The staff at the hotel was very friendly and helpful, especially when my father lost his wallet with all his documents – they found it and returned it immediately. All in all, the hotel is nice for a family holiday and we enjoyed our time there.
