Came here for 3 days to celebrate my birthday, this is an amazing small boutique hotel with WONDERFUL BREATH TAKING VIEWS! We went during the week as we were in the midst of our vacation in Rio de Janeiro, and wanted to escape the crowds in buzios, so no complains about noises. Overall i can say this place is very relaxing!
This is the place that you wont have to worry about kids screaming and jumping in the pool or noises from kids playing, they dont allow kids! Its an adults only upscale boutique hotel. That being said, if you are looking for the local experience, I wouldnt stay here, most guests were foreigners.
Buzios has some hotels that can give you that family warmth ambience, this place was more like fancy spa secluded beach destination, which we didnt mind at all, we really wanted to have time alone and I didnt care about making friends with strangers this time but I could definitely say that the hotel culture embraces power distance. They all referred to us as ma'am, sir, and spoke to us as if we were royalties, sometimes a little too much, but it didnt bother us either.
The brunch spread is ridiculously good! I love Brazilian breakfasts! The bartender made an amazing caipsake in the pool bar. Their "lobby" is like a mansion's living room. Another great thing is that they dont have too many rooms, only like 16, so it doesnt get THAT crowded.
Everyone we interacted with from the staff spoke English too and made an effort to be pleasant without invading your privacy asking too many questions.
The best thing of this is not having to drive or get a cab to go out at night, because we were steps from Rua das Pedras where is the night scene and amazing mediterranean food. Being that close to downtown and not having to sacrifice view was a WIN WIN.
