I booked this hotel for my third trip to Buzios. I did not read the reviews on this site until after I had made my reservation and given my credit card information. After reading the reviews I started to worry. I thought I had made a big mistake. I headed to Brazil and made my way to Buzios and arrived...

This was our third trip to Buzios. Everyother trip was fantastic. I was hoping that this vacation would be of equal quality to my past experiences. I have to say that I wish that we had checked this website prior to booking our hotel. The Brava Hotel gets an "A+" for the website design and the marketing. From the moment...

I stayed in this hotel in Febraury, and before posting my review I read what others where saying and I agree ,some parts are true. I´ve been to Brazil many times, and in coastal towns like Buzios, the typical brazilian lodging is the pousada.In my opininon, this is a pousada that tries to pass as a hotel.So, don´t expect to...

We booked two rooms in the Brava hotel after searching many websites. I guess you always have to have in mind that photoshop may be used in this type of sites. The website is totally misleading as it portrays a beatiful minimalist clean hotel with a beatiful view and an amazing swimming pool. Once you get there you realize you...

First off, I´d like to say that I am the biggest idiot for not having consulted with TripAdvisor first before staying at this joke of a hotel. After a night staying there, I went on to TripAdvisor to check, and finally, IT ALL MADE SENSE. The only thing is I had two more nights there so I guess the joke´s...

After travelling around Brazil in large 5 star hotels, Brava hotel was a breath of fresh air. The rooms are uniquely designed as are the stunning common areas and pool. The service was great, Edison and Fabio were so helpful and friendly they made our stay truely memorable.

Having read of this hotel in the Wallpaper Rio handbook and subsequently looked at the hotel's website, I arrived in Buzios with much anticipation, having spent three days at the brilliant newly opened Fasano Hotel in Rio. I booked three nights in a "Presidential Loft" and was required to pay for the entire stay upon checking in. Upon entering the...

Do not stay at this hotel even if it the only place open in Buzios. Do not be fooled by the website, our experience is that it is nothing like the website. The hotel took our money in advance and then refused to refund it when we discovered we were are staying in a poorly-constructed and depressing place. We were...

My husband and I had a 3 night stay booked at the Brava hotel in November 2006. Upon check in we realized that we did not want to waste our vacation at this dump. I was shocked at how different the hotel was from what appeared on the website. Do not be fooled by the posh appearance on the website....

We just returned from Buzios. Unfortunately, we did not heed the warnings here. I can't comment on all aspects of the hotel because we did not end up staying the night. After check in we waited in the lobby where the ceiling was falling, and there was some type of mold growing on the walls. This, combined with the odor...
