Pousada Hibiscus Beach
Ranked #56 of 105 Hotels in Armacao dos Buzios
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 February 2013

I enjoyed my visit to Buzios this past week and found that the descriptions were true to form. The location of the inn is perfect and near a nice beach (but I'd suggest going to other beaches because it's way too packed with tourists). The people at the front desk were friendly and spoke English which was helpful and I liked the feeling of being up in the hills. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were very cute!
The downsides for me were the breakfast, because it left little to be desired and there wasn't much left when I had gone down about 45 mins before we ate. The other is that you need to be prepared for bugs (ants, flies) because of it's location.
I'd recommend this for anyone who would want to visit Buzios though!

We had searched everywhere for a beach bungalow in Buzios and found this place. Our bungalow was spacious, private, clean and comfortable. A lovely big balcony too. The location is beautiful and either a lovely long coastal walk to the main restaurant area or a short taxi ride. We would definitely return. As we then spent a further 5 nights at a plush resort and the Pousada Hibiscus Beach was our favorite.

I have just returned returned from my fifth visit to Hibiscus.
To be quite honest, I would not stay anywhere else in Búzios.

The Pousada is situated in a quiet area not far from João
Fernandes beach (a 2 minute walk). All the staff are welcoming,
helpful, polite and friendly.The bungalows have recently been
re-furbished and look stunning in their distinctive new colours.
The ocean view from the veranda never ceases to amaze me
whether it is morning, noon or night!

There is an excellent choice of food at breakfast time and the
kitchen staff will go out of their way to satisfy your requirements
(just ask!)

As Búzios is not a large town (thank goodness!) all the beaches
are accessible and are well worth a visit, especially Ferradurinha
my newly found favourite!
You can catch a V.W. taxi to any destination in Búzios for 2 reais (about 70p)
muito baroto! from the Pinguin restaurant, a 5 minute walk from Hibiscus.

The pousada is not far from Ossos which is part of the old town, and I spent
many hours there watching the fishermen come and go while admiring
and loving the` departure of the sunset!

I would like to once again thank the owners of this great pousada (Kevan & Alicia)
for making Hibiscus seem more than a "home from home".
I look forward to December 2013.
If you need somewhere to relax and unwind, look no further than Hibiscus beach !!!!

Room Tip: All rooms have an ocean view

I spent a few days here in July 2012 and hope I may do so again soon. (In fact, I lked Buzios so much that I am buying a place of my own there !) I don't really have much to add to what other reviewers have already written. Good, spacious standard of accommodation, with an agreeable degree of privacy, and yet very convenient for one of the area's many beaches, although it has its own pool. It enjoys a good sea-view as, like many places in Buzios, it is situated on a hill. It should be remembered however that such locations are not ideal for disabled people: not a criticism; just a fact of its attractive location.

I've stayed at Hibiscus Beach Pousada twice. March 2008 and August 2011. I love this place. The restaurant at the bottom of the hill has great food and excellent caipirinhas, the beach is just a few steps past the restaurant, quiet, awesome view of the ocean...all of the ingredients for an awesome vacation. It's not fancy, expect to see ants and mosquitos, the beds are about as comfortable as sleeping on a friend's couch, no room service, etc etc, but the breakfast is 100% authentic, the staff are helpful and friendly, and the price is totally reasonable. Next time I go to Buzios, I would definitely stay here again. Excellent value.

Hi Jessica,

We are so pleased that you enjoyed your second stay at Hibiscus Beach as much as the first time. You are right , the breakfasts are one of our strong points, and everyone seems to love the variety of tropical fruits, cold cuts and pastries as well as the eggs, hot buffet and fresh Brazilian coffee .
You are also right about the beds not having been as comfortable as we would have liked. You will be delighted to know that in September, 2012, all rooms were equipped with new luxury beds with 25cm. (10 inch) spring mattresses, ensuring a good night´s sleep for all of our guests. In fact, Hibiscus Beach has just undergone major refurbishing with new furniture in the bungalows, and a stunning facelift, with newly painted exteriors, exclusively designed by a respected arquitect from Rio de Janeiro. We believe that renovation and improvement are essential for the hotel to remain, in your own words as "First Choice for Búzios".
We look forward to welcoming you for your third stay at Hibiscus Beach, to see the improvements for yourself.

Not luxurious, but the hotel has many points in its favour. My wife and I have travelled a lot, but have rarely met such friendly and helpful office staff. Both Christian in the day time, and Nitinho in the evening put themselves out to help us with restaurant recommendations, tours, money exchange,laundry etc.
The hotel has individual bungalows, clean and well equipped, and the sea view from our balcony was fabulous. Breakfast was plentiful and tasty, with lots of tropical fruit..No complaints at all, and we hope to return next year.
Tips: Ask for a high room with the best sea views.
Try the boat trip in nearby Arraial do Cabo, the clear blue waters, and powdery white sand are magnificent.
