You'll be sure to be given a warm welcome by friendly hosts. We had a nice, big comfortable room, which provided lots of privacy. However, a slighly moudy bathroom could have done with a lick of paint. The pool is a very good size for a guesthouse with so few rooms, and is also very private. It offers peace and...

We stayed in the Royal Suite, and after spending a week in a very basic room in NE Brazil, this was a sheer luxury. The room was very tastefully decorated and the bathroom was larger than many found in most NY hotels and better furnished. The service was personal and friendly and the staff made you feel special - The...

Really nice rooms, great setting, friendly staff, nice breakfast, etc. Just a little pricey and a little further from town than expected. We had a car so it was fine, but I could understand people not wanting to walk 10 mins to town on a fairly dark street at night. Otherwise, it was a great stay. Beautiful views, great heated...

We stayed here for 6 nights and although we have nothing to complain about it wasn't what I was expecting based on the reviews and thought it was very over priced for what we received. We booked the Royal suite which had a balcony with views of the sea; this is technically true, but only if i stood up and...

Having just arrived back from a trip to Rio De Janerio then 8 nights in Buzios i have to say that I am more than a little disappointed with this hotel. We choose this hotel largely based on the reviews written here and have to say that i think some of the people were at a different hotel. We booked...

My husband and I just got back from Brasil for our honeymoon. We went to Rio and Buzios and we highly recommend staying at Glenzhaus! The decor is top notch (straight our of Elle Decor magazine) and extremely well designed (we noticed that the air conditioning vents have a wood casing on the exterior to hide them. Details details!) Our...

My partner and I stayed there for a few days during the last week of June. We loved the room, the staff, and the breakfast. The Pousada is nicely decorated and has a nice posh but friendly feel to it. The only real difference between it and the ones near the downtown is that those pousadas have views of the...

After reading reviews, was not sure if this was going to be the best choice but I was extremely surprised! Check in was great!

Very nice Pousada with great pool....but there are better in Buzios. The entrance area is sublime and service is excellent, but the place falls down on lack of real charm.

This hotel (or Pousada) was a story of 2 extremes: What we loved: 1)The staff is very helpful. They almost give you a bed and breakfast feeling. 2) The bed was amazing. Very comfortable. 3) As others have written, this was the best free breakfast by far. Again, the feeling of a bed and breakfast, not quite personalized but very...
