The staff at Porto Bay Buzios are super helpful and go the extra mile to make guests feel comfortable. They were also very helpful in giving sight-seeing advice and information about the city. The room was large, very clean and comfortable. The breakfast included is delicious and substantial. The pool area and the pool itself are lovely.

After a hectic Olympic visit to Rio we arrived at Porto Bay Buzios on a sunny afternoon. Enough time to change before the sunset, we spent our first night on the veranda testing the variety of caipirinha's as recommended. Our room, on the ground floor, has been perfect. A luxurious size for two. A giant, comfortable bed. And a shower... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in April. Rooms and balcony were both large and comfortable. Pool and surround area very nice, breakfast was taken here and was ok, but nothing special. Staff were friendly and couldn't be more helpful. Only negative - bathroom could do with an update. Recommended.

This is a small hotel – as are most in Buzios – with a fine swimming pool, decent sized rooms and pleasant breakfast buffet.
