Me and my wife stayed as part of our honeymoon. Staff was very nice and the place is super cute especially at night when there's all different colors lighting up the place. Right next to the best beach in Buzios, Geriba. Massage was great (not free) and breakfast very good as well (free). Do NOT expect luxury, but yet again...

This place doesn't fit as a hotel The allocations, the people that will serve you and the atmosphere will make you feel like home. The location and the view are perfect. As the service. Beautiful place. The room is stylish and good, but a bit noisy sometimes.
