As not too many Germans are coming to Buzios, I will write this in English, so excuse any mistakes I make. After a 2-week-South-America-Trip bringing us to Peru, Bolivia, Argentinia and Brazil, my wife and I wanted to relax some days. We decided to drive by bus three hrs. from Rio to wonderful Buzios, once a small fishing village, today...

We just returned from a weekend stay at this property and ‘wow’ what a different perception compared to the previous report. We found the staff EXTREMELY friendly and helpful. I had made the reservation for the hotel via a 3rd party website at a very reasonable price, but it had only listed “Junior suite”. I assumed this automatically meant a...

Stayed here with my wife over new years 2010. This has got to be one of the worst hotels I've ever stayed at - do not waste your money here like we did. The website is a complete farce and is misleading. You will regret every day you spend here if you do. 1. On our 1st night arrival (after...

Hotel was pretty enough but then again EVERYTHING in Buzios is pretty enough.

All in all, we were quite satisfied with our 4-nights stay at Porto Bay Glenzhaus. Nevertheless, this hotel is still missing that "extra something" to become a true 5* property. The location is not one of the best in Buzios. Although the walk to the center of the town is only 5-10 minutes, the area is not very well lit...

We stayed 3 nights here and it was a great experience. The staff were all friendly and the breakfast was great. The main town is really close and quite a comfortable walk.

Made a great deal on this sophisticated pousada during the slow season in June. Otherwise, Brazil is NOT CHEAP ANYMORE! All the locals kept saying how 'cold' it was at 75 degrees fahrenheit.
