“Perfect for babies and toddlers!”
Reviewed 6 April 2013 via mobile

I stayed here with my husband and baby boy (2 yrs old) and everything lived up with my expectations. The only downside of this inn is its location, however near a great beach (Geribá), is quite far from downtown. So, one should rent a car or depend on the shuttle service. Apart from this, Corais e Conchas is a great value, because the facilities are very good and there is a variety of choice to entertain kids, comprising well-maintened toys, swimming pool, movies, drawing/painting, games, etc. Not only it's great for families, but it's very nice for adults, because the hotel has a cozy décor and lots of plants and flowers inside. In spite of the small bedroms, all have balcony with hammocks. The staff is very friendly and the coffebreak is very good, although it's served quite late (it starts at 8h!).

Corais e conchas is a great option if you care about service. The staff is always ready to make your stay as pleasant as possible. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The privacy you get if you book a luxury room with its private little outside terrace is worth the extra cost. The hotel is a natural choice if you have small children. During the high season there's daily entertainment for them.

Room Tip: Standards are good value. I prefer the luxury ones

Used to travelling to quality resorts in South East Asia I was surprised at the high costs of the small posadas in Buzios, not many of them convinced us and we selected Corais e Conchas because it had by far the best reviews and was one of the few with children facilities in Buzios.

It was an excellent choice, definitely Excellent for Buzios standards. Although the rooms are a bit small and have only showers, they were comfortable and well maintained considering that our children continually entered wet and full of sand.

The pool area and the bar were very relaxing, the lunch and dinner menus very good value, so we spent many evening just relaxing with Capirinhas while the kids run around in the kids area.

The kids area was very good with many toys, some in great and some in not so good conditio, but the kids house and slides was very good, toys room, art room, ping-pong and metegol. Nick, kids entertainer while we were there, was very patient and very active with the kids, my kids loved playing with him and he made an admirable effort.

The posada has some beautiful corners to sit and relax, have a drink or read. The people and service was very good all round and the place is taken good care of and very pleasant.

Geriba Beach is about 300 mts away, which is in my taste the best beach in Buzios. I prefer wide beaches with waves to small secluded and calm beaches, but if secluded is what you want you can walk about 15-20 minutes by Geriba and get to Ferradurinia.

Overall, if you planning to be in Rio and then want to relax a few days in Buzios I would definitely recommend Corais e Conchas, specially with kids.

Room Tip: Make sure you get the rooms behind the reception and the pool and depending on budget I would recomm...

This pousada is everything you need. The rooms are more like chalets, each with their own veranda and hammock (essential for a lazy day), a variety of pools, sauna, jacuzzi, kids room and organized activities, restaurant, cinema room... All in beautifully landscaped gardens. The staff are welcoming, friendly, and cannot do enough to help, many speak perfect English. Had this been walking distance to the main area, it would have been a 5 rating, although, they do run a shuttle bus and will organize taxis. If you only have a day or so in Buzios, go closer to the centre, but, if your trip is longer and you want a great place for some downtime too, this is the place to stay

Room Tip: Forgo the bathtub in the rooms in the main building and opt for the standard rooms

The best experience and best service. Margareta really made our stay an amazing one. I highly recommend the hotel to anyone really looking for a restful spot in Buzios. The shuttle service was also very useful as we did not rent a car or buggie during our stay.

Location is really good - a few minutes walking to Geribá, which is one of the beast beaches in Buzios. Staff is really friendly and the rooms on the new wing roomy, clean and quite tastefully decorated. Breakfast is not the best I ever tasted, but very yummy.

Nice Hotel. Excellent Service. Very Clean rooms. Not far from the Geribá beach. Good for children. We went there with a 5 months baby and was an amazing time. Good reacreators. Excellent breakfast. Nice pool and bar.
Definitely, a mini-resort.
Negative points:
1. They provide a small kitchen to the guests (prepare milk for children, etc). Unfortunatelly, the microwave's kitchen was broken and we had always to ask some attendee to use the main reastaurant kitchen microwave. I think they could have another microwave to replace in cases like this.
2. They charge R$1,50 for towels to use on the pool or beach. I think it could be included on the hotel final bill.
3. A hotel that is proposed to be "baby / kids friendly" should not explicity advertise guests with messages like "you can't wash clothes inside room". When you travel with babies, washing clothes is a fundamental thing, specially baby bibs and body suits.
4. Free internet, but very unstable.
