The hotel is set in beautiful scenery with a warm pool, gorgeous gardens, private hammocks and an extreamly yummy breakfast which is worth getting out of your comfortable bed for. The shared areas are well kept with a pool table, tv room, lounges and internet. The pool area is set up for lounging around with day beds and beautiful gardens.

It is a beautiful resort with an excellent location, between... More

The room itself was small, had old furniture and awful ceiling. Only one girl of all staff in the pousada speaks English. In reastaurant... More

We just spend two nights in the Barracuda and though the rainy weather in Buzios we enjoyed very much this resort, which is situated in a huge lush tropical garden in a quiet bay. It's a quite beautiful Hideaway to relax from the more loudly hotspots of Buzios peninsula (if you arrive at night: don't worry, if you have the... More
