Rio Buzios Beach Hotel
Ranked #17 of 105 Hotels in Armacao dos Buzios
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 May 2016

Took a 3 hour ride from Rio to the town. It felt like a getaway within a getaway. Quaint hillside hotel. English speaking manager available once we arrived. View from our balcony was just pretty. Lots of trees, lush plants.

Rooms great size, lots of wicker furniture, not for the robust. TV good, minibar stocked w/ soda and beer. Prices decent. Bathroom clean, water pressure okay, slow drain in sink. used safe in room, no issues.

restaurant good, workers were friendly. Food was decent. Breakfast buffet was satisfactory, omelet was good.

Chairs and towels provided for beach, just be sure to bring them back. Stiff charge if you don't.

Beaches were really sweet and only a short 2 minute walk from hotel. I would certainly stay here again if I ever get to return here.

it was quite an experience to sit at the chef's table and observe Steve and Francisco prepare your meal first hand. I had the filet mignon which melted in my mouth like butter. I can never have another steak in Toronto as a result. The ceviche was perfect it was served with warm chips that were lightly salted to help balance the spice added to the ceviche. Steve made me feel welcomed and I allowed me to ask as many questions about his food preparation techniques as I wanted since I'm a foodie. The crab oscar was to die for. Wonderful atmosphere excellent food an impeccable service by the chef and the sous chef.

Well kept, clean hotel more spacious and modern than many. Not a 5 star but more than adequate. Staff is very helpful and thankfully most speak English. WiFi in the room. Balconies with partial ocean view. Small but clean pool. Decent bar. Nice continental breakfast with omelletes to order and lots of fresh fruit, meats, rolls and juices, included in price. Towels free, umbrellas and chairs for rent. Beach is a 5 minute walk.

Room Tip: Higher floors have better views but everything, even the lobby, is either a very slow elevator ride...

Just finished a 5 night stay at the hotel and have nothing bad to say. The staff was always helpful, especially the front desk. Each evening they got us a nice taxi for our trip into the town center for dinner. Every restaurant recommendation they made was a winner. Breakfast was good with lots of variety. I especially liked how the omelets were prepared to order. The pool area and bar were well maintained and the views are great. The pool beds were a real winner since the Brazilian sun was quite hot on my white skin! The rooms are not fancy but quite functional and very comfortable.

Room Tip: Higher elevation rooms give a better view.

This property is comfortable, well located - but is no means luxurious - it is functional at best. Having said that, that doesn't mean it is bad! Not quite USA or UK standards - thats all.

The service was the best part - the team was so friendly, and did everything to make us feel comfortable. Breakfast was decent, the pool was small but our daughter loved it - perfect for families with kids. Room service menu is poor - but thats a good reason to get out and try something else.

The rooms were decent sized, although bathrooms were a little small.

Location is excellent - steps from the beach, and a short stroll into the town.
