When you go to Búzios, you can expect all types of weather, either a sunny and very hot beach day, or rainy days for a long period of time. But even if it rains everyday of your stay, if you were as lucky as me, and chose the "Pousada Porto Bay Glenzhaus" for your stay, you'll have a blast for...

A very pleasent hotel. I really recommend it. Its not in the middle of Buzios but it takes 10 minutes on foot. The girl who served the breakfast Fabiane was very kind, and the manager Bernardo too. I had a few problems in Rio's airport but he solved all he problems with the maximum professionalism. He´s a young boy, but...

Visitors to Buzious usually do not come for peace and quiet but more for the night-life and beaches. And the beaches can only be recommended - they are lovely, clean and inviting and there is probably a beach for whatever beach and activities a person prefers. Glenzhaus is in the "Center" of Buzious - meaning it is not right at...
