Pousada Bucaneiro
Ranked #8 of 105 Hotels in Armacao dos Buzios
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 December 2013

Wonderful service: staff in general is super friendly and helpful, including cleaning ladies, maintenance, reception, bar & breakfast, everybody has always a biiiig smile!!

Location is good, a few minutes walking from Rua das Pedras and Orla Bardot, with no need to climb morros...

Rooms size is fine while there is not much space left when having a crib inside... bathroom also small, but great shower pressure!

The garden and the pool area is nice and very enjoyable, well designed and well maintained.

Breakfast is good enough (delicious orange juice)! but could be better, specially fruit variety (sliced mango only once in 8 days, although I got a whole fruit sliced for me when requested!).

Silent, quiet and relaxing place, very clean, and with nice ambient music.

I would definitely recommend to stay at Bucaneiro.

A tip is for the city, not for this pousada in particular: make sure to bring enough clothes with you, because there is high humidity and they will not get dry if you wash them.

Room Tip: If you have small kids, rooms on top can be dangerous. I would choose for the ground floor rooms.

great pousada, very clean , nice rooms, quite and only 200 mt from city center!!
all was very pleasant, the room, big and moderm, all is present and you feel in a ice enviroment, pool is small size but is very nice , you can also have a drink while in the water, breakfast is special, fresh fruit, milk, cereals, eggs and ham, bread and cakes, all you van desire is there.
there is also a sauna close to the pool. more than suggested, i payd also a reasonable price probably because now is low season, but was inaspected .

Room Tip: room looking to the swimming pool and garden are fancy, i do suggest these

We stayed at Pousada Bucaneiro last November for 6 nights and overall it was lovely and we were really pleased with our decision. Neither of us speak portuguese and we had serveral reasons to ask for help or advice during the stay (nothing bad about the hotel) and the staff were fantastic at finding a member who spoke good english and then really very helpful indeed. In general the service was very good, even though we arrived on a very busy bank holiday weekend. I thought breakfast was really good and consistently so. Our room (up the top, far left) was comfortable and clean. Having the veranda was nice for when one of us was still in the room and the other wanted to be outside. Drinks were priced reasonably I thought but if I were to offer one suggestion it would be a better lunchtime menu. That said, the town with such a large variety of restaurants is really close by. All in all this could be a nice middle of the range hotel but instead it is much better due to great management, staff and attention to detail. I love staying places like this.

Set just outside the buzzling town centre, Bucaneiro is a real gem. Very clean, great atmosphere, nice setting, spacious rooms, private veranda, helpful and very flexible staff, extensive breakfast and a nice pool. Would certainly go there again. Bathrooms could use an upgrade.

The assets of Pousada Bucaneiro are the very kind staff and its lovely ambiance. We remained there for 4 days. The room was large enough, cleaned everyday of course. Every room has its own small patio with a view over the inner court, a lovely garden, a small water pool and a relax area.
The days started with good and fresh food for breakfast. We also made some specific requests and the staff has always pleased us with a kind smille.
The only critical remark concerns the awful wi-fi service: the signal was sufficient but, for some reason, there was no data flow. Anyways, we believe that it is a "minor sin" in the circumstances.

We had a wonderful one week stay at Pousada Bucaneiro and really enjoyed the experience. Everything worked smoothly at the hotel, the rooms were cleaned very well everyday and all the staff was really friendly and helpful. The hotel area was peaceful and the pool and the bar were great. The hotel is also well located and it takes only 10 minutes to walk to the centre and to the nearest beach. We also enjoyed very good massages at the hotel. We would definitely like to go back!

The real conditions of the hotel and the room do not correspond to what described on internet: the bathroom is dirty, the safe is just 30wx25hx15 cm!!! As soon as we entered the room, we asked the reception to clean the shower because there was a dead bug in it and they did not care.The wc flush is insufficient. The breakfast is poor (we foung hair in the food and manager removed it silently); the staff is non-cooperative and the manager to whom I kindly asked to break the contract (that entailed the full payment for the total period) just refused. The three stars are purely theoretical. They charged me 726 BRL/day +10% which is ridiculous for such a place!!! similar hotels charge almost half the price. In the room there is no place where to put your clothes except a shelf and
bar for hangers.
