“Lovely, magical”
Reviewed July 18, 2014

I loved this pousada. The excursions were excellent and the stay was great.

I have to say, the food was superb. Every meal was amazing! I ate a lot more than I usually do. :)

The horseback riding over the water was INCREDIBLE!! I wanna come back just for that.

I saw 8 giant anteaters and got really close to one, and even got a picture with it!

Thought this pousada was lovely. It was clean and tidy, had a nice layout and the room was perfect. It was quiet at night so we slept well and the breakfast was good - especially if you like pastries! The staff were very helpful and friendly. Pool's tiny but fine if you need a dip, otherwise the beaches are only around the corner.

After the long journey to Brazil, this place was an amazing site to come to! It's so cute with all the rooms surrounding this beautiful courtyard with a pool. The rooms were clean and decorated nicely. And the breakfast was the largest breakfast we found on our entire 3 week trip! They had some many delicious choices and tons of fresh fruit! The staff was also amazingly helpful in recommendations and helping us book things. And the hotel is a short walk to downtown and some beaches. I'd definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Get a room up on the hill. It has a nice view of Buzios!

This is a beautiful little Pousada with a good location and priced right. It is in easy walking distance of various beaches, the town center and the main road for catching one of the minibuses. The room has enough space, is cleaned daily and has a large LCD TV and a bar fridge. Breakfast is continental with various fresh fruit, breads and sweets. There are various daybeds around the pool, which makes for a comfy place to spend a few hours. Staff are very friendly and helpful.

I am withholding one star for a few things that bothered me:
1. The bar (and hence snacks) only open at 2pm. This is a bit late and inconvenient for me.
2. The bamboo wall-mount in our room smelled like wet wood. I didn't like that.
3. The room needs a bit more packing space. I suggest a few drawers. There is enough space.
4. Nightstands on both sides of the bed are needed. Make it with drawers to help with point 3.

Thanx for a great 7 days.

Room Tip: Ensure you get a pool side room.

Wonderful service: staff in general is super friendly and helpful, including cleaning ladies, maintenance, reception, bar & breakfast, everybody has always a biiiig smile!!

Location is good, a few minutes walking from Rua das Pedras and Orla Bardot, with no need to climb morros...

Rooms size is fine while there is not much space left when having a crib inside... bathroom also small, but great shower pressure!

The garden and the pool area is nice and very enjoyable, well designed and well maintained.

Breakfast is good enough (delicious orange juice)! but could be better, specially fruit variety (sliced mango only once in 8 days, although I got a whole fruit sliced for me when requested!).

Silent, quiet and relaxing place, very clean, and with nice ambient music.

I would definitely recommend to stay at Bucaneiro.

A tip is for the city, not for this pousada in particular: make sure to bring enough clothes with you, because there is high humidity and they will not get dry if you wash them.

Room Tip: If you have small kids, rooms on top can be dangerous. I would choose for the ground floor rooms.

great pousada, very clean , nice rooms, quite and only 200 mt from city center!!
all was very pleasant, the room, big and moderm, all is present and you feel in a ice enviroment, pool is small size but is very nice , you can also have a drink while in the water, breakfast is special, fresh fruit, milk, cereals, eggs and ham, bread and cakes, all you van desire is there.
there is also a sauna close to the pool. more than suggested, i payd also a reasonable price probably because now is low season, but was inaspected .

Room Tip: room looking to the swimming pool and garden are fancy, i do suggest these

We stayed at Pousada Bucaneiro last November for 6 nights and overall it was lovely and we were really pleased with our decision. Neither of us speak portuguese and we had serveral reasons to ask for help or advice during the stay (nothing bad about the hotel) and the staff were fantastic at finding a member who spoke good english and then really very helpful indeed. In general the service was very good, even though we arrived on a very busy bank holiday weekend. I thought breakfast was really good and consistently so. Our room (up the top, far left) was comfortable and clean. Having the veranda was nice for when one of us was still in the room and the other wanted to be outside. Drinks were priced reasonably I thought but if I were to offer one suggestion it would be a better lunchtime menu. That said, the town with such a large variety of restaurants is really close by. All in all this could be a nice middle of the range hotel but instead it is much better due to great management, staff and attention to detail. I love staying places like this.
