“We would stay here again”
Reviewed January 25, 2014 via mobile

If you enjoy beach access, ocean views in the center of all the action and steps away to serenity and tranquility ( casa brand as just around the corner) this is the most valuable place in Buzios! It's owned by a woman(which Kimberly loves) the head Chef Sonya, and boy does she offer excellent options and fantastic libations. This is a must visit even if it is just for lunch or dinner!

You will see a lot a tributes to Bridget Bardot in Buzious. In the 1960's she had a Brazilian boyfriend and Buzious was then a simple fishing village. They stayed right here, at Pousada do Sol - room 8 in fact. I found this all out as they checked me in to.....room 8 ...her name is on the door!

Location is very good right in the centre of things on the famed Rua dos Pedras. This is a real party street, but worry not as the noise does not seem to reach the rooms, well not room 8 anyway! Ocean view rooms are definitely worth the money - room 8 is literally on the beach and you look straight over to "Ugly island" the pier and a fleet of colourful fishing boats. A delightful outlook.

The Cigalon restaurant offers the same views and the food is excellent - regarded as one of the better restaurants in Buzious. Reception was very pleasant and breakfast is served daily in Cigalon. There is no pool, spa or anything like that, but you are on the beach and in the centre of everything. Only drama is that cabs often cannot come to the door, as the street is most pedestrian access. This can cause a bit of bother with luggage but time arrival and departure right - when service vehicles are allowed on the street - and there is no drama.

I was very comfortable at Pousado do Sol. It represents remarkable value when compared with some of the very high rates asked by less well located establishments.

Room Tip: Room 8 is good! Get ocean front view for sure.

This place was really cute - only a couple rooms, and I recommend splurging on the water view room with the balcony (it was only $125 a night). The view was gorgeous and the staff was super friendly. It's got an excellent location if you like to go partying at night. The food at Cigalon was delicious and was the best meal I had in Buzios for the 3 days I was there. The free breakfast was extensive and delicious.

Room Tip: Definitely spring for the water view room
