We spent 3 nights 9-12 April 2017 at Porto bay boutique hotel at Buzios. This small and wonderful hotel is located about five minutes walking distance from the downtown Boardwalk. The rooms are quit big and has a balcony at each room (we had two rooms on two different floors). The rooms are well furnished and beds are very cozy....

We were greeted warmly after a long and tiring flight, shown to our spacious room with a fantastic view! The staff set up our room with extra beds (family of 2 adults & 2 children) and we still had plenty of space - including a dressing area with fridge and a large balcony with a hammock. Breakfast is a buffet...

From a welcome toast with champagne, to great room set up and service, Porto was great for just relaxing. The pool is inviting, the breakfast is plentiful and flavorful. The location, although providing with a beautiful view of the bay, isn't next door to the famous cobble street. But it's still only a 5-10 min, so it was a breeze...

We spent our first 2 nights in Buzios in Porto Bay Boutique Hotel, a four-star collection of stylish suites, set amongst its own carefully maintained forest of trees and tropical plants. There are views over the town to the ocean and it’s only a 5-minute walk to the town center and the Rua das Pedras. Breakfast is a great selection...

We were on a Seabourn cruise which called into this delightful port. We took a blue street car tour around the beaches and inland. It's absolutely lovely. Good quality shops and bars along the sea front, oh and a statue of Bridget Bardot who visited there in her younger years and put Buzios on the map.
