Pousada Barlavento
Ranked #51 of 104 Hotels in Armacao dos Buzios
Reviewed 5 December 2014

Setting was beautiful; felt like we were staying in a rain forest. And it was no more than 10 minutes walk from the nearest beach and restaurants; about 15 minutes to city center. Room was good; spacious with large comfortable beds. Breakfast was very good, lots of offerings.

Shuttle apparently does not operate on Wednesdays (driver's "day off" I was informed). Internet in the room didn't work (couldn't even connect). Internet in the lobby was better (at least I could connect), but still EXTREMELY slow and unreliable. Worse yet, the one computer they did have for guests was offline and not usable. Our room was not made up when we returned from the day at the beach. Desk clerk seemed concerned, but I told him I really just needed more towels and let it go Very limited English-speaking staff (but, I'm just sayin'; of course it's just as much my fault for not speaking Portuguese). Thank heaven for Google Translate.

The location of the hotel its one of the best in Búzios. There is some cool restaurants nearby and it's only 15m walking from "Rua das pedras" . The view of the hotel its beautiful, again, one of the best to see the sunset ! The breakfast is a little poor and it could be much better. The installations are a bit old and the bed very unconfortable to sleep. The pool is ok, not too good but not bad. The only thing i think they should change as soon as possible is the facts that the hotel don't have a kitchen ! You can't order a lunch or a dinner, if you want to eat you have to leave the hotel and seach for some restaurant nearby.

Room Tip: You don't have to choose a room with a view to the ocean. All other rooms have a pretty nice vie...

In a very good location. The view from the pool area is beautiful.The pousada has free shuttle service to the city center and to the beaches. But you can just go down the hill and walk to downtown Buzios. The rooms are clean, nothing too fancy, just simple clean. Did not receive shampoo or cond., soap only. And looks like they pretend to forget to leave towels in the room, so you have to go to front desk and tell them that. Of course after they bring it to your room, they expect a tip. It happened to us two days in a row. For using a pool towel, there is a 2 reals charge. Breakfast was a bit weak, compare to other Brazilian hotels we stayed at. Not many choices of fruits. The same food every morning. Scramble eggs, pound cake, some bread, some ham and cheese, and 2 choices of juice. It was getting kind of boring for 5 days in a row. But there is an excellent food place just down the hill called "Sukao", with the best fruit juices and burgers in town. It is a must to eat there!
