... much of it other than an opportunity to helpfully drink most of his pre-dinner-Uno-game-time-caiprinha. As the night progressed it became apparent Craig was seriously unwell and will not be eating calamari again any time soon.

Not only was Craig good for nothing today, but the weather decided to have a cold, windy day meaning there was really nothing much to do other than laze around, glad to have a lap top and kindles.Needless to say Craig's morning yoga ...
... which continued for the next 4 days! We waited, considering the alternatives as the rain started to leak through the thatch roof above. We could either wait to see if the storm would pass (thankfully, we did not opt for this one, considering it was getting close to nightfall and, as I said, the rain lasted throughout our the rest of our stay), we could hike backwards, across hill and dale, through the untamed wilderness for 2 hours returning from whence we ...
... at least a grad student. My hair is really long for me, I wonder if that has something to do with why everyone thinks I look young. They finally let her in and as I am walking to the bathroom I start cracking up. I mean, 17, are you kidding me, this is absolutely insane. I´m damn near twice her age. But, I figured I already made out with her for like 2 hours, so **** it now, may as well ride this night out. So at the club the one ...

... the kitchen and Cacau the grill. Outside, we learned how to make Caiparinhas and relaxed in the sun. Within 1 hour we were feasting at the long table along with Ana and Cacau, Geiza, Alessandra and her boyfriend Luciano, and another couple who are longtime friends of Cacau's. What an afternoon. We hung out all day, listening to music, eating, dancing and drinking. As the hours went lazily by, we watched a retreating orange sun sink behind the mountains only to ...

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 Búzios. It has beautiful sea views, and is just 100 mts. from a lovely beach, the Praia de João 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.
