Let me begin by saying that upon arrival we were "upgraded" to the so called apartment that I neither booked not requested. Coming from London I specifically reserved a room with a balcony or an outside area so we could enjoy the fresh air. When we walked into our "upgraded" accommodation it was dirty, didn't even have soap, and on... More

The services has good levels,but I've problems concerning the room given,later solved. The reception is young but very concern in helping. The food is good brasilian style.

It is advertised as a boutique pousada, minimalistic design, great garden etc.. that is true. Unfortunately the cleanness is not a top priority: bathroom towels are so worn out that it is impossible to say if there have been the daily change. Nobody bothers to clean up pool chairs and sofas.

It's a very good hotel. The rooms are very clean and the staff are nice too. The wifi has not been working properly, while I'm here. And if you're expecting a hotel with few children, it's not the best choice, but it seems to be the perfect for families.

Very nice stay. The staff was very friendly and fast. We had a own whirpool in our patio. The pool and the restaurant area look beautiful. The breakfast was oustanding for the price with many fresh foods and juices. The dinner was tasteful as well with a wide varity of salads and other dishes.

Geriba beach in our opinion is the best beach in Buzios. We hired a buggy (from the hotel R$80) and visited several other popular beaches one day and we were glad we chose to stay at Serena due to its close proximity to Geriba beach. Beyond its location, the hotel offers a free shuttle ride into the downtown/centro area of... More
