Azeda Boutique Hotel
Ranked #15 of 104 Hotels in Armacao dos Buzios
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 April 2016

The last time I stayed here a year ago, I was torn between Azeda and a pousada at the other end of Praia João Fernandes. I came here again the week after Carnaval with friends, and we were quite pleased and at peace. The staff is genuinely accommodating, the rooms and surroundings are well-kept, and the view from the upper rooms is dreamy. It's an easy walk along the promenade to town (15-20 minutes), the beach is quite close and there are two other beaches nearby. If it rains, there's ample satellite TV fare. They give you beach towels, but I do miss the free chairs and umbrellas you get from the other pousada and the less expensive beach food at the other end. All told, you can't go wrong with Azeda. I'm still convinced that, apart from having good people working there, its relatively small property of 20 guest rooms helps them keep everything well-maintained. And João Fernandes is still among the best beaches.

Room Tip: Go for the highest floor, room 19 or 20, or the next highest level for the view.

My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon, and we truly enjoyed our stay. The hotel was located within walking distance of several beaches (we probably walked to at least 4) and Rua das Pedras (maybe 15 minutes) where there are restaurants, nightlife and shopping. There is a fantastic pool area at the hotel, as well. This hotel is a great alternative to massive hotels. It's quiet, off the beaten path, and there are only a handful of rooms. The rooms were clean and well decorated. The room we had faced the water and had a balcony with a few chairs and a hammock. My only feedback for improvement is that the water pressure from the shower isn't great. Breakfast was delicious! Everyday there is a buffet of fruit, eggs, cake, coffee, juices, etc. There is a pool table and and game area downstairs in the reception area. They will lend guests beach towels. The staff was always friendly and willing to help. Thank you, Azeda!

Azeda Boutique Hotel is a small gem in a picturesque village that is complemented by several beautiful beaches within a 10 minute walk and at the quiet end of the bustling center also a short walk away. Were it not for contaminated beaches in Rio de Janeiro, I probably would have never been to Buzios – you cannot come to Brazil and not get in the water!

The rooms are comfortable but a bit short on amenities so bring some toiletries if you are accustomed to having them - soap is provided. They are air conditioned and very quiet. The breakfast buffet is fresh and they have a nice selection of breads and fruit - the juices are freshly squeezed and are delicious. Make sure the setting on the toaster is what you require. Someone toasted regular bread on the bagel setting, burned the bread and smoked up the dining room – just glad it wasn't me.

There are at least 5 beaches within walking distance, all you have to do is go to the hotel entrance turn any direction and start walking. We visited Azeda, Azedinha and Joãn Fernandes beaches which were beautiful; each with its own charm and clientele.

The town center has lots of shopping and dining options. Make sure you exchange money before getting caught up in the adventure as there is only one ATM in town and it did not work for us when we tried to retrieve cash for some ice cream. The exchange offices were already closed. One tip on cash – bring crisp, new bills for the exchange. We had a hard time exchanging bills that were even slightly worn. This is the case throughout most of South America.

The service at Azeda Boutique Hotel was excellent. The dining room was prepared to take requests and was very helpful when I asked for lime juice to help a sore throat. The rooms were clean and the front desk very helpful.

The hotel arranged for our transfer from the airport and the service provided was beyond my expectation. Because of a flight problem we arrived much earlier than expected – instead of a 5pm arrival we arrived at 1am. The hotel managed the change while we were in-flight and Renato was there at the ungodly hour of 1am to take us on a two hour car trip. We arrived at 3am and there was only one room available – we required two. Our fellow travelers were gracious enough to remain in the lobby until another room was available which wasn't very long.

Since we arrived in the dark we were not aware of the beauty that surrounded us until we woke up and stepped onto the balcony – what a view! That made the unpleasantness of our flight problem instantly go away.

I would like to thank Joyce for all her help with our booking and transportation needs –especially for resolving our cash retrieval dilemma – and to Alex at the front desk who helped us out at the time we most needed it in music-to-our-ears Spanish.

The hotel can arrange for visiting tourist attractions but once we found Joãn Fernandes Beach we were in paradise and decided the beach hopping boat ride will have wait for our next visit which is already being planned.

This is the second place I've stayed near João Fernandes beach, my favorite, and I think you can find places that both satisfy and annoy. The hotel is ideally situated if you want to enjoy João Fernandes as well as the smaller Azeda beach and the barely-a-beach, Ossos - AND be close enough to walk along the waterfront to Rua das Pedras. The spaces at Azeda are pleasant, and the staff was super attentive. When my A/C malfunctioned, someone was at my door in less than 10 minutes and, when it couldn't be fixed, I was offered another room. Only one person at the desk spoke English; another, enough to communicate; and that's to be expected when you're in a foreign country, even when catering to foreign guests. The pool was tiny and uninviting. Breakfast was very minimal and lacked diversity. But dinner, though the selections were limited, was a delicious surprise and better than food I've had at pricey restaurants in town. The room and view were fantastic, very comfortable, and satellite TV was a bonus. They do need to eliminate their "bottle fee," which you have to pay if you stow your own beverages in the fridge. That's ridiculous. The big problem was ants - everywhere in the room, on the countertops, in my toiletries, my clothes. The front desk acknowledged the problem, said the hotel was waiting for a slow period to take care of it, and I believed them. Here's the thing: You won't get everything you want. I like this place, really enjoyed myself, and yet I'm torn about whether I'll return or go somewhere else. Certainly not before they exterminate the formigas. But I came away with the feeling that this hotel really does try hard, and the people who work there really do care, which is far more than can be said for other hotels. The other hotel I've stayed at, on the other end of João Fernandes, has its up sides that can't be fairly compared with Azeda Hotel, and the beach restaurants don't gouge you as the ones near Azeda. The beach vibe is better at the other end; the convenience of being closer to town is better at Azeda. Another piece of information for visitors about the internet: I've talked with many people about this, and it seems that this beach area has poor internet service in general. That Azeda offers wi-fi in your room is more than some other hotels. But I wouldn't blame an individual hotel for its poor internet. Azeda, in fact, claims to use two services just to get what it has, and it's still slow. So it is what it is. Nitpicking aside, Azeda was clean, well-run and comfortable. That's a thumbs up from me. There are only 20 rooms, and it's smart of them to have a property that's manageable.

Room Tip: Spend the extra money for one of the highest rooms with the best views, 19 or 20.
