Location: Bossa Nova is about 100 metres from the main road and 700 from Rua Das Pedras (Buzios centre/ beach).
Facilities: Is a small pousada, only 8 rooms. The whole hotel is quite new, with clean lines and very airy and light. Rooms are of a reasonable size with a small fridge and a 40 inches flat screen TV. It only has Brazilian channels, and free WIFI.
My room overlook the lovely swimming pool which is of a fair size. The pousada only offers Bed and Breakfast but there are plenty options in Rua Das Pedras to eat.
The best of Bossa Nova is the cleanness; you can literally eat on the floor. The staff is also amazing, specially the owner German , who is a valuable source of information. I saw him recommended tourist sites and places to go, things to do to all his guest.
Breakfast: consist of a variety of fresh fruits, cheese, cold meat, cakes, served from 8 to 10 in the morning. All with freshly squeezed orange juice and some others.(yes, you can see the staff putting the oranges in the electric juicer!). It´s also have a small selection of cereals and yogurts with different breads and spreads.
Do I recommend this place? Definitely YES!
It´s a very good value for money.
Transfer from Rio: I have tried for many occasions to contact the highly recommended in the forums Malizia Travel for my transfer from Rio international airport to Buzios. Unfortunately they never answer my e-mails so I took the 1001 Viaca coach in the Rodovia bus station. It´s cost me R $ 47 and if you think that taking the coach will save you money forget about it!. It´s a false economy. The taxi from the airport to the bus station recommended by the tourist information cost me R$ 73 and once in Buzios the taxi to the pousada cost me another R$15.
German the owner of the pousada arranged a transfer on my return with a local company for R$70. So don´t be afraid to arrange your transfer with the hotel, it will saved you money and hassle!.
Finally if you are one who really enjoy peace and quiet this is the place for you, and for those who need a bit of more action the city centre is only 700 metres away or a 2 stop ride in the local´s white vans for only R$2
