By the BaiaPosted Jan 29, 2013 on Hotels.com
Buzios has become a very popular vacation spot with a very wide range of accomadation from hostels for the backpacking set to lux for the rich, some of whom may be famous. Baia do Joao Pousada is a moderately priced hotel and thats needs to considered. That said, it is very comfortable place to stay starting with a great locatioin and rooms that overlook the bay. Caveat, the great view means being up a hill so be prepared for a nice hike. The rooms are fine, clean and more than adequate-since are not coming to Buzios to stay in your room. They have wifi in the rooms. The shower in ours was a bit small, but doable. As a small hotel, the service is quite personal-Ricardo, the owner is a warm, cheeful pleasant guy-who speaks English and Italian, in addition to quite naturally, Spanish and Portugeuse. We enjoyed our stay and hope you enjoy yours.

AwesomePosted Jun 21, 2011 on Hotels.com
I was at the hotel for a week, while attending a trade show in Macae (75Km away) it was worth the commute to come back to this amazing place. The breakfast was included and was even better because of the great views. I highly recommend this hotel especially if you are traveling with a loved one.

A gem!Posted Mar 20, 2011 on Hotels.com
We picked this inn based on other good reviews and were not disappointed. It was perfect and better than the pictures! The room was simple but perfectly fine in every way, it lacked nothing. The lobby/bar and breakfast area was sunny & pleasant with spectacular views over the pool/patio area-- impossible to beat! This location is absolutely perfect! We read reviews that said this, but I guess we didn't really believe them because we were blown away when we got there. Beach access (to a couple different beaches) is just at the bottom of a short (but steep hill) maybe 5 min walk? and town is a 40min stroll (? maybe more or less) -we were so entertained along the way, stopping to people watch and swim and shop, I really don't remember how long it took because we were in no hurry. it is the perfect outing. The innkeeper couldn't be more hospitable. He speaks English, Portuguese, Italian and Spanish. He is simply delightful and even drove us to dinner and the bus when we left. We have such warm feelings about this place I want to spread the word. It the kind of place you hope to find but only sometimes do...it was wonderful.
