“Amazing small hotel, with breathtaking terrace overlooking sea”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2013

The location, the view, the impeccable cleanliness makes this small hotel a gem in Buzios. Perfect for a romantic getaway.

The terrace with the pool and the view on the ocean is an amazing place where to have breakfast.

Staff is very helpful and friendly and can help organizing activities.

Breakfast could be improved, but other than that it is an excellent romantic choice.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2013

We had planned a longer stay in Rio but on the advice of a Brazillian work colleague we opted for Buzios and chose this location on the basis on TripAdvisor reviews.
Arriving early in the morning at Rio from Colombia our private transfer was waiting for us - this was arranged by e mail through the hotel (USD205 / R$400) and worked really well. The trip took about 2.5 hrs for the 180km trip.
The hotel is arranged on numerous levels and we had a smallish room just down from the main dining room, but it was perfect. Beds comfortable, aircon worked well and lovely view over the bay. The sheets and towels were 'tired' and needed to be replaced. The bathroom, whilst rustic, needed some work and some attention to maintenance / mould was required.
The staff were all very helpful and we managed well with our few words of Spanish! The day started with breakfast up at the pool deck which was absolutely fine for a small hotel like this one. We had lunch and drinks around the pool a few times and everything was delicious...the food service was a bit slow but we were not in a rush! The hotel has a shuttle to the beach and town, but we didn't use it and found it easy to get to where we wanted to go by foot. A word of advice - don't expect to find cash machines here and bring either enough local currency or USD. It is easy to change money in the town but the hotel will not change it (but usual credit cards are not a problem).
Down at the beach is a fantastic experience and not too commercial at all. We got 'free' beach chairs and an umbrella with the deal that we would have luch at the local restaurant - we did this and the food quality was out of this world.
We ate dinner once in the hotel dining room ( a Saturday night) where a fixed menu is offered - the meal was very good but we later found out that the starters, main course and desserts were all individually charged.
For those prepared to take the trip out here, it is absolutely worth it and this area is a gem (although we were told that in the summer holidays in Dec / Jan it is very crowded). Our car driver picked us up bang on time and dropped us at our hotel in Rio.

This hotel is beautiful, nestled among the trees and located on hill in front of Joao Fernandes beach. The hotel is a little pricey, but all the good ones are pricey there, so it is not a big problem.
I stayed one night at the standard room, and one at the master suite.
The master suite is very big, comfortable, well equiped and it has an amazing view of the ocean. The standard room is good but not like the master suite is. The good thing is all the rooms have ocean view.
I recomend it for everyone who wants a romantic and relaxing experience at buzios, you probably will not be disappointed.

Great place - dont hesitate to book this. get a buggy for about £40 a day and you can get around easily.
Have a bus to center of town from hotel (5 minute drive away) 3 times out and 3 times back for free, otherwise taxi is 15 Real.
Pool is lovely and relaxing after a day out.
Go to Rockafish Bar too for lunch and reserve a bed - AMAZING FOOD and go for the starters!

We stayed at La Pedrera in August 2011. It was off season, but the hotel was still reasonably full.

We stayed 2 nights in the Master Suite, and loved it. The apartment is well decorated, the bed is very comfortable, the bathroom very spacious and well designed. We had a nice view from the ocean. The common areas of the hotel are also very nice, with a beautiful swimming pool. breakfast was very nice as well, with a variety of options. I didn't try the SPA, but my girlfriend likes it.

The only issue I would say was that hotel is on the top of the hill, so you need a car or the shuttle service to go to the beach. We didn't care about it, as we had a car.

The hotel has a great location on the hill. It's perfect if you like to walk, also up- and downhill. The decorations are bali style and during the day there is everywhere background music, like at a spa. Staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms and the bed quality is a good standard and quiet. Parking was free. At the moment, there is some constructions ongoing for a new pool area. But it's no problem for the guests. It's a nice boutique hotel, just right for a midsize budget.

This small hotel is really nice and quite...perfect for honeymooners or couple with small kids or anyone. It is located in the top of a hill so you have a wonderful view from the terrace. The rooms are very cozy and comfotables, the decoration is really nice. There is a spa, I didn´t use it but there it is. You have a beautiful view from the swimming pool.
The breakfast is very good. There are 2 small restaurants...I only ate in one and it was ok. We loved this hotel and the people is very nice in there.
