We came for an overnight stay via a drive from Rio, which was overly long just through sheer weight of traffic. So we were hot and tired when we arrived, but it was worth it as the large pool was right next to our room (tree house style cabin). Every room was an individually styled chalet type, interconnected via stone pathways making the resort very intimate. While not overly modern the room was large, comfortable, spotless and had a brand new a/c machine that worked a treat. We got changed quick and got straight into the pool which was refreshing and only had another couple in it. The sun was starting to go down but it was still very hot, so this superb pool (there was also a separate kiddies pool) was welcome respite. Nipping back to our room to change I noticed there was a hammock tied up on the wall of every room. Of course I had to try it and was surprised how comfy it was, particularly for a bloke of my size!
There was a shuttle mini bus that we first used to go to the Beach Club of La Foret's sister hotel. The beach itself was mobbed as it was Carnival weekend, but you could tell all the families were enjoying themselves. We missed the last shuttle back to the hotel, but took the short walk back instead.
Time for another quick change back at the room, then to grab the shuttle bus into the centre of town for dinner. Buzios was bustling with lots of restaurants and boutiquey shops, and of course Brigitte Bardot!
A GREAT stay and will definitely return.
