El Parador Pousada
Ranked #47 of 104 Hotels in Armacao dos Buzios
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 May 2013

Just got back from my 4 day stay at El Parador. This hotel is very simple and only good if you plan on spending your nights partying downtown, getting drunk and passing out in your bed. I say that because, although the location is very good ( close to the center, no walking distance to the beaches), the rooms are super noisy (at least in the annex) and you hear everything that's happening outside and in other rooms. If you're not a heavy sleeper, don't stay there.

The cons:
-wifi is very bad: doesn't work in the rooms and not even next to the reception.
-the pool is very small and not really clean. The pool area is right next to the reception, not cool.

The pros:
-good breakfast
-friendly staff (changed our room upon generator noise complaint right away)

Other than that, they have a snooker table and some chess tables. I'd say the hotel is not very bad, but when I go back to Búzios, I'll look for another one to stay at.

Stayed: April 2013, travelled with family

El Parador is to located, close to the Center, and the Beach Promenade is just arround the corner. We stayed in the building opposite main House. Rooms are big and clean, nice balkony, staff was very friendly, the pool looks bigger on the photos than it is in reality (app 10m long w only 6 m for swimming), breakfast is ok, w fresh fruits, cheese and ham. A perfect location for somebody who wants to be near all bars and shops ( 150m) but still outside the direct trouble. A small market w everything you forget or need is just 200m away. I would say value for money.

Room Tip: Assure to bring shampoo w you, which most people do anyway.;-)

This pousada is pretty big with two buildings, a main building and one on the other side of the road (where we stayed). Our room was large with a double bed and a single bed. It had a nice balcony. Finishings are pretty cheap and walls are very thin, so thin you can hear the conversations next door word for word. Another problem is that trucks park near the hotel and unload supplies for the village shops (early and late) and there is also a parking lot opposite which makes for a noisy experience. Earplugs thus required. It is walking distance to the bus station, center and main pier which is convenient. Internet was not available in the room, only in the main building. Breakfast was good.

I think there are more quiet pousadas to be found and will therefore not return.
