We would like to thanks the staff for the support provided that make a real enjoyable holidays at Buzios, for sure we will come back
Staff was very friendly and the room was well kept. Location was good and an uber from hotel to downtown was only 5 reais during the evening. Hotel was quiet and very chill perfect for families and couples looking for a chill time.
Room was right by a storage and with a view for the street so gets very noise in the morning and the curtains didnt black out the room so we get the sunlight pretty early even whe we wanted to sleep longer. Breakfast was very basic, only few options available and no variations with only fruits as vegan options. Sauna was not working and the heated pool was very small which made it crowed after sunset. Most of room was not acessible for wheelchair or even to take suitcase up and down cause was only stairs to go around the hotel.
Great pool and view, the beds were comfortable and wifi was good. Near the beach and short walk to town
Breakfast was very basic
Fab location, right on the beach in the quieter area of the resort which we wanted. Only a pleasant 15 min walk to rue de pedras where it’s all happening! Staff were very pleasant in particular Gabriel who spoke very good English and was very helpful
Do NOT book a room here. This hotel is a disaster!!! Below our story. Este hotel es un desastre!! No reserva aquí!!! We booked a room in this hotel with a great location near the beach. We arrived late and were very anxious to get some sleep. We checked_in and they guided us to our room. When we entered there was this horrible humid smell. Unpossible to breath... They were probably aware of this problem, because the small room had 2 bottles of air freshner. Pretty quick we found out that water was coming through the walls. They were wet!!! It was very clear that we could not stay in this room. We went back to the reception and asked for another room. There were not any other rooms available. We requested another solution. The employees recognized the problem but couldn't offer a solution. We asked to speak with a manager. But they told us that he couldn't be reached. They had charged us and we asked them to give at least our money back. Even that was not possible. I went to the hotel a cross the street. Unfortunately they had no rooms available. When I told them our story they admitted that they received many people from ILHA BRANCA Inn with complaints like ours and other complaints like electricity problems, installation problems etc. At 2 am in the morning we found a bed in a hostel at 3 km from this horrible hotel. That was not easy because everything was fully booked or unavailable because of the late hour. The Hotel never offered a solution. When we went back the next morning to try to get our money back the manager treated us very bad. He knew about the problem but kept talking about it like it was something minor. He could not give us the money back right away. We needed to wait several days and than claim the money back ourself. We asked them to cancel the payment for us but that was impossible. I have no idea if we are able to get our money back. I have slept in many hotels but never I have encountered a hotel that is managed so bad....
