Very nice place and good value for money. We (married couple m40, f32) just returned from a one week stay and we had a great time. The host and hostess were really helpful and nice and their daughter Laura already took us to see the turtles at the nearby beach when our suitcases were not even unpacked yet. The hostess even made a banana cake just for us to taste (which was really good!). The room was basic but very clean. Clean sheets and towels every day. Only minor point was that our room has only one electricity outlet that we could use and this was in the bathroom. So we had all our electronic equipment (laptop, phone, 2 tablets, 2 camera's) charged all the time in the bathroom. Not an ideal setup. So I would recommend people to bring an extension cable when you bring some equipment you wish to charge. The swimming pool is quite small and the water is cleaned every morning. The breakfast is nice, bread, fresh fruit, ham, cheese, jam, coffee, fresh orange juice. Only thing I missed was eggs.

There is a small supermarket just around the corner and some restaurants near the pier. The hotel is not really in the centre of Buzios, but their are small vans that take you for 2 real p.p. (about 0.67 EUR) via the main road to the center or to the Joao Fernandez beach. Most beaches are in walking distance from the main road. The vans are there all the time, you never have to wait for more than 1 minute and they stop anywhere you want them to. To take a taxi from beach to beach is 25 reals, about 8 EUR.

We walked in 20-30 min. from the hotel to Geriba beach, Ferradurinha beach, Tartaruga beach and Ferradura beach, and of course Praia de Manguinhos which is around the corner. Please make sure you get a good map, because the street names are not clearly written in many streets and the roads are not straight. It's hard to get directions in any other language than Portuguese.

My favorite day: go with the van in the morning to Joao Fernandez beach, stay there to have lunch and walk after lunch to Azeda (and Azedinha) beach which are very beautiful. At the end of the day, walk towards the city center, pass the church and the art in praia dos ossos, have a drink to watch the sunset at one of the nice places (e.g. Mata Hari) and walk to the center to see the statue of Brigitte Bardot. After dinner in the city (if you look for a burger, Mr Brad is an option), take the van back to the hotel.

Very NICE!
Everything was very clean, great breakfast, very good and relaxed atmosphere. The hostess and host were really really friendly! Especially the host ;), who spoke good english and took care of us when we couldn't get into the next apartment.

I would most certainly recommend people to go here. Price and quality are very good. It's very close to the beach, supermarket and nice places to eat around the pousada.

Great place

We stayed a week here, and overall it was a good experience. The host & hostess were great! They even took us to police station and offered us money when some of our belongings were stolen at a beach. Rooms are small and dark, but beds are comfortable. Keep your bathroom window closed to keep out mosquitos. Breakfast is simple but with delicious fresh fruit, ham, cheeses, and breads each day. Coffee served all day. Good place for those who don`t plan to spend much time in the room, but be aware that property is small for number of rooms so be aware that if other guests are even the least bit noisy, you will hear them.

Room Tip: Rooms on the ends have hammocks outside in hallway.
