Visited Buzios for four nights recently during a trip to Brazil and South America. Contacted the hotel in advance to see if they could help arrange a transfer from Rio de Janeiro to Buzios.

Not familiar with Buzios and judging by the reviews/pictures on TripAdvisor, I assumed this hotel was on the beach - it is not. We got a great deal, 4 nights for the price of 3, and the hotel itself was perfect for an affordable price ~$130USD/night. We upgraded to the suite which had a nice living room and long porch...
