We stayed at Costa do Sol for 5 nights. It was our first stop on a first trip to Brazil.
The staff are very helpful and friendly, the rooms are comfortable and clean, we even had our own balcony. The wifi is great and the breakfast is good. The hotel also give out beach towels which is handy for the pool and going to the beach. We did notice however that the hot water is solar heated so aim to have your showers in the evening!
The hotel itself is located away from the town at the top of hill with great views of the main beach of Buzios. The view from the pool is fabulous and the pool bar is handy. However they don't mind if you take your own drinks and plug in your music to their speakers.
Actually its easier to take your own drinks and snacks as we got the impression one staff member looks after the pool bar and the restaurant which means service is slow.
They also tell you not to drink the tap water however don't leave any water for you to drink. So take your own bottles of water as everything in the mini bar and the hotel bars are expensive and there are no shops nearby.
We took advantage of the location to explore nearby beaches and to get some exercise by walking into town (downhill all the way!). The hotel offers bus rides into town at evening and to & from a different beach each day.
FYI - a taxi ride from town to the hotel ranges from $18-20. There is also lots of parking and they helped us with beach buggy hire for a day.
I would recommend this hotel but I'm not sure its value for money but we did go at high season
Tip - ask the hotel if there's any chance of a pick up and/or drop off from the bus stop if you're coming by bus.
