... to regenerate. We all spent most of the day on the deck in the shade as did most of the other passengers. The ocean was still and there was not a breath of wind. It was very hot and I think my head was so crammed with all the things that we have seen and experienced over the last weeks that a down time day was timeous! We rallied in the evening to dress for dinner – it was the last ”Gala Evening” meaning time to scrub up and get dressed. Giva ...
... shoreline markets. Extremely tasty I have to say. My appreciation of fish is constantly growing and if it's fresh, you just about can't go wrong. It's only when it tastes too much like the sea, either through the type of fish or from it going off. But with a nice lazy day complete, a sleep, and a great bbq, we were off out partying. Shots, drinks, dancing, home at dawn. Quite a brilliant day really.
So of course we had a ...
... people I just completely ****** off with that one. Remember, it's a joke, sort of. Anyway, retribution is in store for anyone who didn't like my deep thought. I head back to the apartment and all of a sudden my stomach starts killing me. It's not like an upset stomach or anything internal, it feels more like the muscles lining my stomach are being ripped apart. It starts off somewhat mild but it keeps getting ...

Its about 1 mile long and built especially for Carnival in February. Then to the Maracanna stadium. The bus just stopped outside which was dissapointing but good to see the place none the less.

Historical Traveler Reviews Pousada Hibiscus Beach Buzios
During a recent trip to Brazil my wife and I were lucky enough to finish our trip at this hotel in the little town of Buzios. After a hectic trip around the major attractions of Brazil and Argentina, we decided that we needed a few days at the end of the holiday just to relax: the Hibiscus Beach Pousada was the perfect place to do that. The hotel itself has a lovely position in Buzios, built on a slope down to the sea, and we had a fantastic ocean view from our terrace. Within the hotel, the rooms are spacious and are kept scrupulously clean. In addition, the hotel staff are exceptional. I'm a keen golfer and one of the best courses anywhere in Latin America is just a few minutes drive from the hotel: the staff were very helpful in obtaining low cost green fees for me and also in organising some transport to take me from the hotel to the course. Overall, this is a lovely, well-kept, well-run hotel with very high levels of service, with a superb location by the sea set within beautiful grounds. Highly recommended to all: five stars.
We travel frequently and this is our 2nd trip to Brazil but 1st time in Buzios. We highly value TripAdvisor review and stayed at the Hibiscus largely based on what we read in the earlier reviews. We disregarded the 1 negative one since the others seemed so contradictory. This was a mistake - and I don't see how the positive ones can be real.
Fantastic stay at Hibiscus Beach
My wife and I have just got back from paradise! Our stay at Hibiscus Beach was exactly that. A wonderful warm welcome, exellent and efficient service in a clean and relaxing environment. I can thoroughly recommend it and would like to thank everyone there for a fantastic holiday.
We stayed in July at the Hibiscus Beach and were very pleased with all the facilities. The bungalows were extremely clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend this accomodation to anyone visiting Buzios.
Home away from home
In June I spent two weeks at the Hibiscus Beach Pousada for the third year in a row.Buzios is a great getaway,three hours from Rio and usually having better weather.The pousada is located at the end of the peninsula,so there is easy walking access to beaches with calm waters or beaches with waves.The pousada consists of fourteen bungalows set into a hillside.The terraces offer beautiful views of the ocean and the opportunity to enjoy the birds that live in the large area of native vegetation.The English,Argentine,and Scottish owners haved lived for fifteen years in Buzios and are well traveled in Brazil as well as internationally.The rooms are clean and comfortable with the airy,high ceiling design of architecture that makes Buzios such a unique place.
Re February 2005 - a different review
We stayed at the Hibiscus Beach Pousada recently and found no trace whatsoever of the comments made by the earlier review. The rooms are clean and comfortable, no stains on the bed linen and no sign of mould. The swimming pool was clear and there certainly was no dark stains. The owners made us very welcome and nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff. Our bungalow had a great view of the sea and the gardens were lush and obviously cared for. We mainly used the beach which was a few minutes walk from the pousada and the centre of Buzios is well within walking distance along a panoramic seafront. We would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel and intend to return.
We stayed here in January 2005 and our choice of this hotel was somewhat based on the two prior great reviews.
Perfect combination of comfort and bohemian feel
Hibiscus Beach was our last stop in Brazil and was the perfect way to end a perfect trip. Not too overdone- simple enough not to detract from the natural beauty. The Pousada was clean and had amazing views and was just up the street from one of the best beaches in Buzios. Great value (we booked through hotels)- about $60/night.
Hibiscus Beach Pousada
I would like to recommed the Hibiscus Beach Pousada in Bśzios. It has beautiful sea views, and is just 100 mts. from a lovely beach, the Praia de Joćo Fernandes.The staff are very friendly and the service was excellent. Its a wonderful place to relax and unwind and is very good value for money.
