We choose the ocean view room for a little extra, this is a must, room 1 has a balcony and fantastic views, the other rooms looked small. The room is very romantic and charming, the bed is comfortable but the balcony is definitely the highlight. The breakfast buffet is lovley in the main restaurant overlooking the beach. Wifi is available but not so good. You can't get a better location for bars, restaurants or shopping.
I was disappointed in this hotel. From the pictures, the reviews and the ratings, I was expecting much more. Perhaps its my fault. This would have been a fine 2 or 3 Star experience. The hotel itself rates itself as a 3 Star....so, perhaps I was hoisted on my own petard! However, everyone was giving it a "4 Star" rating in the reviews....so, I was expecting a 4 Star experience! Sadly, it was no where near that. Basic room...sheets were clean, hot water worked, A/C worked, morning breakfast was good and great location made up for run down overall condition. (OH! And the PRICE was right! lol) Come expecting a 3 Star experience, and you'll be fine!
To sum up our stay in Barra da Lagoa and Buzios in general, would you say is a paradise for paradise .... We spent a perfect week! incredible breakfast, full, rich, varied, fresh and quality. In the room we received the bed with rose petals! super comfortable, with hammocks to pleasure, comfortable bed, TV (with a few channels on purpose! but super fun programs) super cold fridge. Pool and a bar with two men to serve super divine! Treated us really well since we arrived until we left. Divine staff. We even made friends! who would say. Very well located, though it is on a busy street, super quiet to relax. And to walk right in the middle of everything, near downtown, beaches and even a service station in case you felt like a snack. I recommend it entirely, if there had been place, we stayed to live !!!!!! Thanks and I hope my review encourages them to know a beautiful place
