We stayed at the Costa do Sol Boutique hotel for one night in September 2012 and loved it. It was just what we were looking for. It sits up on the hill, with wonderful views, so is not next to the beach, but that suited us just fine. We enjoyed wandering along the beaches of Buzios and visiting the restaurants but didn't want to be in the middle of a busy area.
The hotel is new and modern, very fresh and clean and comfortable. The swimming pool was lovely, with a nice bar and friendly bar staff, one of whom could speak a little English. The reception and breakfast area were open and light, and the staff were great. The receptionists didn't speak much English but this wasn't a problem.
The room was very nice, quite big, comfortable King bed, nice bathroom, good air conditioning.
Breakfast was great, served buffet style, fresh cheeses and meats, fresh tropical fruits, yoghurts, breads, omelete made to order, scrambled eggs, cereals, fresh squeezed juices, bolos (cakes) and more. Very good breakfast indeed.
We can highly recommend this hotel and would have loved to stay longer. It is only a few minutes drive from the beach and restaurant area, so easy to get to, and taxi rides cost about 15 reais, however we chose to drive and had no problems finding parking near the beach, though we did visit in the low season and not the height of holiday time.
There was a well equipped gym on site as well, though we didn't use it. It is a residential area with a few hotels and poussadas around, so pretty quiet at nights, which we liked as we did not want to be near noisy bars or restaurants. if you are looking for a hotel in a very lively, busy area, then this is not for you, but if you are looking for a little bit of luxury and a good night's sleep, this is a great choice.
