    Fabulous

    Staff was very service minded and the package included in the hotel with panoramic tours, massage, bus service at night, surfing lesson, beach services made the stay very good value for money. The food, both lunch and dinner, was very fresh and of high quality. This is a very good beach place, not to be compared with a regular 4 star hotel - do expect ants etc in the rooms (but they do not bother you at all). I would come back, but probably not pay regular prices - only if special offering is available.

    We were first given a room with a bed on the floor and the size of the room was extremely claustrofobic - my recommendation to the hotel is only to offer these rooms at a reduced price for people actively looking for that type of accomodation (under 30?)

    Superb

    Very close to the beach. Quiet. Nice design and spacious rooms. Staff very helpful. Good breakfast. Helpful shuttle bus to town.

    A lot of ants in the room and water dripping from the ceiling

    Very good

    location, transporation and sense of safety..

    price of dinner buffet $50.00 reias per person was to expensive and was not stated clearly before we begin to eat. The rooms had dirty floors and beds were on the floor. Lastly, pictures on the internet did not reflect the actual room.

    Good

    Very friendly staff and near Geriba beach.

    Only spanish speakers guests, as the owner is Argentinian it attracts most of south American and, as I'm a Brazilian citizen, I felt a foreigner in my own country, having to speak my bad "port-Spanish" and no one could speak English to my partner apart from one manager. The price of my very standard room with Booked.net was more expensive than the best room with jacuzzi if u reserve it through the hotel by phoning them, though, like I've said, only one manager can speak English, as far as I know.

    Fabulous

    The hotel is really nice. The room was quite comfortable and breakfast was excellent. Staff was very friendly and always willing to help. We got a special rate due to low season what made it definitely worth staying there.

    The rooms are really thin and some connected by a door meaning that you will hear everything from next door. Maybe there are rooms with different configuration, but we don't know. It is also quite far from the city center (where you have more options to eat). We had a car so it was not a problem at all.

    Good design, close to the beach

    The people at the hotel could not speak english and were not really helpful; they did the minimum. For instance when we were going back to Rio they could have informed us that the date and time we chose was very bad; instead of 3 hours it took 11 hours ( New years time).They booked the transfer for us.

    - Stylish first impression (but it's just an impression); - rich enough breakfast

    - This is not a 5 star hotel: dirty and filthy bathrooms, non-existent walls between rooms (you can actually hear pretty clearly what happen 4 rooms away), extremely poor customer care; - notwithstanding previous repeated arrangements to have a taxi at 5.40am upon check out, the receptionist did not actually arranged that, which ultimately costed us in losing the bus back to Rio (already paid) and paying 350 reais to reach Rio's airport; the hotel refused to provide for or reimburse the payment which, given the situation and the category of the structure, was supposed to be a given. absolutely non recommendable structure.

    Good

    Pool and breakfast are wonderful. There are lots of attractions they offer for guests like everyday transfer to the city downtown (there are absolutely no places to go right near the hotel, so trip to downtown will help you have nice dinner and get some souvenirs) and other beaches (geriba is far not the best one in the city), city tour. Staff are very friendly, but not everyone speaks English, just those at the reception, but they are always willing to help you.

    Boutique hotel sound too great for it. Rooms at the photo are much prettier than they appeared to be. We had a suit room on the 2nd floor with no patio. It was far from the pool and restaurant. Rooms with patio and their own pools seemed to be more attractive than ours. Anyway furniture is a bit old, bathroom is really small, toilet was not working properly. I think it doesn't cost it's price.

    Beautiful room with private garden. Pretty pool and good breakfasts. Friendly staff.

    It was all fantastic. Hot tub pretty small, but lovely nonetheless.

    The service was wonderful. Great stay for a relaxing vacation.

    I felt the rooms were extremely basic, and that could be improved upon. Also, the platform beds are low and a bit uncomfortable.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    Location and breakfast are very good. The ambient is calm and well organized. The room is clean and big. The cost/benefit ratio is very nice.

    Rooms are not the same as they appear in the internet. Overall they are simpler than pictures in the internet. Some people of the staff have difficulties in speak and understand Portuguese, although the Hotel is in Brazil.

    Superb

    Really nice boutique hotel, our room had a small hot tub in a private garden/yard at the back of our room. Breakfast was very good and the shuttle bus every evening that takes you into and collects you from the 'centro' is extremely handy. The beach is a two minute walk and probably the best beach in the Buzios penninsula area. Hotel offers beach towel and chair service too.
