Stayed 10 days, including the NY - a working holiday. Really enjoyed it. Quiet, close to a good beach, good, clean, renovated rooms with an open sea view - calm and pleasant. Very nice home cooked food, both breakfast and evening meals - particularly the local fresh fish. Really lovely owner and staff; friendly and helpful. Fond memories, indeed.

The town and beaches of Buzios during Carnaval are full of people escaping the noise of Rio - a little ironic, since they bring the very noise to Buzios. However this hotel is a place where one can escape the noise. The cabins are surrounded by palms, bamboo and other tropical and flowering vegetation. Bird life is however limited. The... More

Excellent hotel in a beautiful waterfront location. Staff was exceptionally accommodating and friendly, and the secluded location is perfect for nature lovers looking to avoid the tourist scene in the city centre.

It was our first trip in brazil, booked this "4 star" hotel which was definitely not worth the money. The place is good for more elderly people and families but not from a young couple. Getting to the centro or to the beaches you definitely need a taxi. Rooms aren't the best , we found a lot of bugs and... More

It has great rooms in front of the beach, breakfast is good. The hotel is full of trees, on the top of a hill and you can enjoy the great view of a sunset in the hotel`s pier. We had a great time!

Barracuda Resort is my special place. Mine and my husband's. First time we stayed there, my husband, then my fiancé, chose that special place to propose me. This second time we went back there to spend our honeymoon. We couldn't have chosen a better place. We decided to take our family and some friends with us this time, since we... More

Traveled here the day after my wedding with my wife's and I's family and friends. Really was the highlight of the trip to stay at this jewel of the jungle.

We stayed two nights at this resort. The room was clean and fresh, we had a wonderful view of the water from our room. The grounds were well kept, food was wonderful, and the staff very nice. The owner took special care to ask us how we slept each night and to make sure that we were comfortable. The beach... More
