Better stay on the second floor...because is more private and the window is better to outside view. My room was number 20.
very friendly Staff
Arriving late in the afternoon, on a busy weekend with no reservation, I was a little reluctant to think there would be many vacancies. However after seeing just how many pousadas there are in Buzios and the environs, my worries were quickly put to rest. Stop reading if you will not have your own transport (rental buggies are everywhere if you plan to get one).
I stopped at many, checked their prices and their rooms. The Pousada Praia Rasa had everything that I was looking for. The owner did not speak any English, but was more than comfortable with my Portuguese. He was helpful and courteous, gave maps and some suggestions of places to go.
The property is on the Praia Rasa, so you'll sleep to the sound of the waves. This part of the coast also is known for its winds, so it popular for wind and kite surfers. The beach is nice to walk along, but is not a swimming beach. To compensate, the pousada does have a pool.
The rooms were spacious and clean. Being so close to the ocean, there was the constant smell of salt.
The rooms had small TV's and A/C although they were never turned on. There are also small refrigerators which are good to store your drinks since there is no bar service.
Parking is free and a good continental breakfast is included.
If you want to stretch your dollar, one thing you can do is ask a local if there are any rooms in houses to let. Although the Brazilian is a cunning businessperson, and there is an interconnectedness of transactions taking place, and they will try to charge you almost the same as what you would pay at a pousada, and the accommodations will be less appealing (perhaps a baby crying, no AC, no breakfast, etc.) it's a way to stretch your dollar if you haggle. Just an option....
I have stayed in this pousada twice and had a pleasant experience both times. The place is run by a very nice gentleman who is always checking to make sure you are comfortable and know where to go and what to do. I stayed in a room with AC, a TV and a fridge, so I could store my own food. There are more luxurious suites with their own patios, but you don't need one, as the common outdoor area has a patio, tables, chairs and hammocks. It's nice to have a conversation with new people if you don't lock yourself away in your room.
Breakfast (cafe da manha) comes with the purchase of the room, and usually consists of coffee, fruit, bread, jam, ham, cheese and juice... definitely enough to keep your energy going for that boat excursion I'm going to tell you about. Buzios's Casa Verde is just a short walk (5 mins) to Rua das Pedras and an even quicker walk to one of Buzios' beaches.
Well I wasa fortunate enough to stay at a family friends rental. If you can its wonderful. Full service, local food and a peaceful place by the beach.
I did see alot of cute pozadas in the village. And eveything is so close together they are all nice.
Well located, at walking distance to several beaches and to the centre of commerce and nightlife, this is a rather nice hotel, with an excellent use of space.
Here and there a feeding point to humming birds helped to integrate the service with the garden, in a very natural ambiance. And the price... even in low season...
The night in Buzios is sophisticated and very busy, cozy restaurants, fancy bars and beautiful people strolling around the main street rua das Pedras, after hours of incredible fun, you can have the peace and privacy of a place in the middle of a forest!
During the day you can see the greenery of the forest and enjoy the last hours of the sun, after pleasant days in the beach in the House's swimming pool!
Never forget that you can spend life with confort and privacy in one of the most exclusive beach resorts in Brazil, Buzios

The name could never be so perfect when you visit the great guest House which here we call "Pousada", all the balconies overview the great blue ocean of Buzios, around you a thick and refreshing native ocean forest. In the evenings the sound of night so present that you have the impression that you are sleeping in the jungle, also in the deck of the ouse you can view a sky filled with stars and many falling stars for you to make your inmost wishes, in the mornings, very plesant birs sings right in front your balcony.
Piece and nature preseration is a must in that place.
The Welcome of the owner Helena will immediatelly make you feel that you are in familiar groudm Janellas do Mar is your house in Buzios.
The swimming pool are strategically located on teh bottom on a greeny hill and overlooks the sea of Buzios.

This is a small owner operated Pousada (Inn) near the João Beach. We were able to book space there even though it was close to Carnival. The Inn was really lovely. The owners, Ricardo & Mario, were very friendly and welcoming.
There is a nice pool overlooking the beach. The rooms upstairs have large balcony's with hammocks and also overlook the beach. The prices are very reasonable.
Hehehe this is our camping ground, great experience to camp in Buzios and it is very cheap, so you can have more money to have fun in the city;)
The nights in Buzios are not so hot, actually it is kinda cool!;)
It was really a nice time camping in Buzios, something that you also should try!;)

You save lots of money if you go camping in Buzios!
Well it was my first test of our french tent, we had a nice time in there, and then we still used the tent in Iguazu Falls, and it was also very successful.
Pierre is a great adventurous companior and we know how to explore a new place!
I am grateful to see my brother loving so much my land, and turning Brazil his home land too!
A great quality was the location, very close to the small city centre!
I am the sort of a traveller who really does not care about luxury, confort, etc...As long as I have a nice place to sleep for me it is okay, in spite of the precarious conditions of sleeping, we had ltos of fun!;)
Not everyday we have an adventurous weekend like that!
And the Campground had clean restrooms, nice enviroment and home atmosphere!
Here you can see my french canadian Pierre, very happy with the result of my attempt to build a canadian igloo, by the way, the tent is canadian!
At night we could spend lots of time talking with the people in the house!
Second step, choosing a nice and welcome shade, generally the campground has some trees to provide you fresh shade. You cannot make wild camping in Buzios, it is extremely forbidden, but there are some campgrounds in the city and this is the nearest to the city centre which was absolutely useful for me!
As I said, if you are well eqquipped it is alright, you will not have any difficulty, but there is no hot shower, the bathrooms are clean and the shower, just cold water!;)
After surviving the canadian winter, who cares about cold water in TROPICAL BUZIOS????
The campground is near the Ferradura Beach, and it is a lovely place with a little grossery and with basic needs for you to have a great time camping!
It was my first camping experience since I was a scout boy CENTURIES AGO.
My friend Pierre was with me, we spend some days in Buzios because I wanted to show him one of our most beautiful beach resort!
And it was the beggning of our BUZIOS IGLOO! :)
No confort at all, if you are well eqquiped you can sleep well, we had sleeping bags, two pillows, and a candle to avoid mosquitos, the tent had windows so we had the night breeze as air conditioning!
We also could keep our buggy in the campground!
Great stay. This place is close to the beach, is clean, is classy, etc. The people who work there are also very nice.
Restaurant, free breakfast, hammocks, close to the beach
